We opted for the 3-day pass and we were given a complimentary 4th day free.
After 2 days we had done all of the tours available and we hadn't hopped off too often, instead choosing to stay on the bus and hear the tourguide's informative narrative of each tour.
If you don't use it as a hop-on/hop-off, there's not enough tours to warrant using the passes for 4 days.
We found it to be excellent value though and the tours were very informative.
I would personally say that the tour guide can make or break the enjoyment of the tour as some of our tour guides were excellent (Jose and Jorge on the Brookyn tours) but others were not so good.
The nightime Brooklyn loop was excellent and you get to see the many parts of the city that you would just not be able to cover.
If you want to use this as a mode of transport to get to various attractions, I would suggest walking would be a better option or taking the subway for the further away attractions as the tour bus is not recommended as a way of getting from one place to another quickly, but it is a great way to see all around the various parts of the city along the way and be informed by the tour guide at the same time.
We had no problem at any time of getting on any of the buses or getting a seat.
We opted for the bus pass as part of a package with our New York Passes that we picked up at the Gray Line Buses on 8th Avenue. That allowed us to use 2 of the tour bus companies. They are basically the same company but looking as though they run separate buses.
