Excellent view,only problem is that it gets really crowded on sunset,paid for the express pass it was worth every penny not to wait in the queue ,a must if visiting New York

I took one tour in New York and this was it. A bit cool on the top with the wind blowing, but the view is so worth it. Am glad I was bundled up. I went in the morning and it wasn't so crowded.

Fantastic - you cannot go to New York without doing this iconic activity and this was probably the best value ticket we bought in advance. We wanted to see the sunset so went at 3.30pm and the queue was 3 hours long - skip the line tickets meant we were up on the 86th floor in about 10 minutes, so it was very worthwhile. If you plan to go late evening though or very early morning, the express tickets may not be worth paying for - certainly there's no queue at 10pm, but if you're going during the day, get these!!

You must use this skip the line offer. It takes hours off of your
sightseeing time. Only way to go to the Empire State Building

Arrived early morning, queues were starting to build up but because we had bought tickets on line we only waited 20 mins to get through security.

This sight was very easy to use,I down loaded my tickets ,took them to the Empire State building ,there was a two hour wait so I was glad I'd bought priority tickets went in showed my tickets we were taken straight through, we were on the top of the empire state building within 10 minutes would certainly use this sight again

This has to be the ONLY way to see the ESB! We went during the holidays. When we got there the line.... wow...L O N G. We, literally, walked into the building and had a private escort right to the top. Flashed our tickets and they opened the ropes for us. We had a private elevator up and down! People looked at us with looks that said, "Who are they?" We did this 'skip the line' thing at the Eiffel Tower as well. RECOMMEND IT FOR BOTH!
