"We went to see so much more than if we had to pay individually. Was nice paying for it before the trip so didn't have to bring extra money and worry about running short. We also got the travel pass and restaurant discount book and discovered some very nice places to eat that we wouldn't have known about. Planning on coming back in 2014 and will buy another one! Recommend it 200%!"
