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

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Thank GOODNESS for the Skip the Line Tickets!!! We thoroughly enjoyed the views from the top of the Empire State Building - we booked the commentary too, which was really useful to get our bearings - and learn some interesting facts about New York as well. But if we hadn't booked the Skip the Line tickets I don't think we would have bothered - the poor people waiting in line must have spent HOURS queuing - honestly, there were literally hundreds of people hardly moving. I know my husband would definitely have lost patience way before we made it to the top! We told all the staff we had the special tickets every time there was a queue (which was the whole way up) and we were immediately whisked to the front of the line, straight into the next available lift - both going up and coming down. Everyone was very polite and we felt like Royalty - I bet the lines of people were SO jealous!! Definitely worth a visit, but only with Skip the Line tickets - thank you so much Viator!

My Review

Really enjoyed this tour - why anyone would rather sit on a bus stuck in traffic in the searing heat than be whisked across the river with the wind blowing in your hair beats me!! Swapped our voucher for tickets at Pier 84 with no trouble at all, then straight onto the Water Taxi and out into the Hudson River and off to see the 9/11 Memorial with no traffic hold-ups to worry about, then back onto the water for an extended stop to see the Statue of Liberty where we had loads of time to take as many photos as we wanted, then back to Pier 84 for a nice cold drink at O'Hurleys on the waterfront. Lovely! We could have made more use of the other stops that the water taxi makes, but with limited time, this fulfilled our needs perfectly! We also thought the price of the tickets was really reasonable. Highly recommended!

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We did the Top of the Rock in the evening, just as the sun was setting, so we got to see New York change from daylight to the bright lights of the City that Never Sleeps! It was a fantastic experience - we visited the Empire State Building during the daytime, so we got the best of both worlds. I did think the Top of the Rock was a much more relaxed experience - still lots and lots of people up there, but so much more room to move about at your leisure, Fantastic views of course and great to be able to see the Empire State Building all lit up. Would definitely recommend you do this tour when in New York!
