Skip the Line: Metropolitan Museum of Art

New York City, New York

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The Met is amazing, but the skip the line part of the ticket was completely unecessary. We were passed between a few people before our Viator Certificate was exchanged for regular tickets and there was no queue anyway. Great experience, the "Skip the line" part wasn't relevant.

Statue of Liberty Evening Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This tour is brilliant. The boat offers the choice of comfortable seating inside or an upper deck to catch some amazing pictures. This is an absolute must do, skyline and Stature of Liberty views at night were awesome. Even the complimentary champagne tasted like real champagne!
Little tip - Our certificate said Pier 17, but we had to pick up the tickets from a booth with a sign saying pier 16.

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

Having gone to the Top of the Deck during the day we decided to do this at night time.
It took us about thirty minutes to get to the observatory but this was mainly security and waiting for lifts. During the day I can imagine the waiting time to be hours. However the views by night were amazing and it was a little crowded but again nothing compared to how i imagine it must be during the daytime. Gift shop is expensive but has a good range of products.

NYC Central Park Bike Rental

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Riding around Central Park was brilliant. We took the long route round and its a lovely tour around the park. Other reviews comment on how hard the bike rental place is to find but the voucher gives the address so take a map and you'll be fine.
The cycle lanes dont cover much of the park so a walking tour is a must aswell. We walked our bikes round parts of the park we couldn't ride and it wasnt a problem. People paying at the office paid double the prices on offer on this tour. Not only a "must-do", but a "must-book" through Viator!

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great views of the whole of New York from here. You get to learn about the history of the building as you travel up. Considering we went on Saturday morning I was expecting us to take ages to get up there. However quick security and a smooth operation all the way meant it took minutes. A number of levels provide different views and great views of Central Park on this tour. The Gift shop wasn't cheap but a great selection of products on offer.

Big Apple Helicopter Tour of New York

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We captured some great views from the helicopter and the pilot provides some really good information on the sites. The wait was quite long and it didnt feel like we were in air for very long but it was still extremely enjoyable nontheless.

Circle Line: New York Landmarks Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This boat tour is really thorough and informative. The information provided by the guide is good as you take a boat round the lower half of the island. You get some great views and some great picture opportunities. However having booked this I then spotted a three hour tour which takes you round the whole island of Manhattan. The second part of this tour is coming back the way you went around so my advice would be definitely book a tour, but try the three hour tour instead.
