Empire State Building Tickets - Observatory and Optional Skip the Line Tickets

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Cramped and crowded...only stayed 10 mins! (altho visibility wasn't great). Went to Top of the Rock the same day, which was much better!! Still...we felt pleased we could say we'd been up the Empire State building!

New York City Hop-on Hop-off Tour, Statue of Liberty Ferry Ticket and Top of the Rock or Empire State Building

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
We used the tour bus so much! It was a great way to see the city in a short space of time, and great value for money! The quality of the guides varied a bit though, but we did had a couple of really good ones. The ferry ride to the statue of Liberty was great, our only wish was that we had actually got off on the island! (we were worried about running out of time that day!) We didn't get off at Ellis island either, but the option was there if we had wanted to. We had already bought a ticket for the ESB so we used our ticket for Top of the Rock... which was AMAZING!!!! So much better than ESB! The observation decks were modern and spacious, with glass panels in places, or none at all on the higher decks, and amazing views. We went up at about 6pm, so that we could see the view in the daylight...then sunset...(which was gorgeous), then we stayed to watch the lights come on as night fell over the city. It really was our favourite New York experience, and one I would thoroughly recommend!

New York City Twilight Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The twilight cruise was a stormy one! It poured with rain and hailed in places, and really upset some of the other tourists! We loved it tho! The guide was v.knowledgeable... and patriotic! We saw some lovely view of the city skyline all lit up. It was very romantic...especially when my boyfriend proposed to me at the back of the boat :) (on our anniversary of 10 years together!) It is a moment I will remember forever, in the rain sailing past the bright lights of New York City. :) (the only minus I would give this trip was that the guide kept telling off a foreign lady for standing up to take photos because she was blocking our view...I know he meant well but the poor woman couldn't understand him!!)
