This tour was awesome! What a view. Pay the extra for skip the lines, definitely money well spent.
Loved it. We went up in the evening so we got to see everything in daylight and then in the dark (had to hang around for a while for that though). Sunset was lovely, but it was Very busy up there, hard to get anywhere near the edge to get photos. Skipping the queues was great, it was like being VIPs!
Viator was so easy to use. We loved our trip to the Empire State Building! We went around 9am and went right up. Highly recommended!
Great experience. Great views of the city. I paid for the express pass and it was well worth the money.
I really enjoyed this, Empire State Building is a lovely building, great atmosphere, well worth a visit and fantastic views.
This was the second time I have used this skip-the-line tour of the Empire State Building, and I would never do it another way! Instead of waiting for hours (really) to be able to see why you really came to the Empire State Building observatory, my family was whisked along by efficient friendly directors past the lines to the elevators, and we had all the time we wanted to take in the "world" from the 86th floor vantage. Last year we also saw the movie experience, and that was fun as well. Worth every penny.
Skipping the line was well worth the money as you literally did this at every stage of your ascent and descent.
We did the trip in about 40mins mid morning and I think it would have taken 2hours or more without these tickets, you just have to keep saying "express" to the stewards who will let you skip the queues.
The view from the top was amazing make sure that you pick a sunny day!
I am in a wheelchair and from entering the Empire State Building everything went smoothly and must congratulate all the staff employed on their efficiency. The views of course fantastic.
