Big Savings on Visits to Top Attractions with Sightseeing Passes and Skip the Line Tours on City Discovery

Paris, France, February 24, 2010—Over 70 city sightseeing passes and skip the line tours are available on, a website where over 7,000 travel experiences ground transportation in 250 airports can be booked. According to Emmanuel Issaurat, City Discovery's president, these travel options are available for major destinations in Europe, North America, and Australia and offer big savings on visits to top attractions.

"With so many things to do in a city, it's easy to get lost in planning. But with easy access to a wide variety of sightseeing passes and skip the line tours on one website, travelers can save time and money," he says. "No need to plan overmuch, run around the city to buy tickets, or wait in line. All they need to do is print the tickets then show up for the tours."

Issaurat reports that City Discovery has partnered with leading ticketing companies such as City Pass, VISITicket, and Smart Destinations to provide its customers with unique travel experiences that can be booked easily at excellent value for money.

"Sightseeing passes often come in bundled tickets, which cost more if purchased individually. Pay a low price once, and enjoy free entrance to attractions." he says. "The passes represent a convenient and guaranteed way of visiting all top attractions."

A CityPass saves travelers up to 50 percent off the price of regular admissions, compared with buying individual tickets. This one-price admission to 10 big cities' top attractions gives a well-defined itinerary for an action-packed weekend and is valid for nine consecutive calendar days. Available in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Hollywood, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Southern California and Toronto, each CityPass includes not only ticket vouchers, but also a map, attraction details, destination tips and money-saving coupons.

Smart Destinations' Go City Cards and Explorer Passes offer admissions to dozens of attractions in each city. A Go City Card includes special savings at restaurants and stores, which make vacations more convenient and affordable. An Explorer Pass lets travelers avoid long ticket lines and save up to 35 percent off the price of buying separate tickets, and is valid for over 30 days. City Discovery offers Go City Cards in Oahu, Seattle, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, San Diego, Orlando and Blue Ridge; and an Explorer Pass in New York.

For one low price, the VISITicket's Power Pass gives free, instant access to the most popular attractions and sightseeing adventures in the world's best cities. Since admission fees are included with the Power Pass, tourists can skip the ticket lines. It is also bundled with special offers and discounts at participating shops and restaurants. Power Passes on City Discovery include the Honolulu Power Pass, New Orleans Power Pass, Washington DC Power Pass, Las Vegas Power Pass and Niagara Falls Power Pass.

Aside from city sightseeing passes, City Discovery also offers Skip the Line tickets, which guarantee fast, hassle-free entry to Europe attractions such as Paris' Louvre Museum; Venice's Doges Palace; Florence's Accademia Galleri and Uffizi Gallery; and Rome's Borghese Gallery and Gardens. Prepaid skip-the-line ticket holders enjoy priority entry privileges, which allow travelers more time to go off exploring on their own
