This is a beautiful building and well worth the visit...
Love it!! Every time I go to NYC with someone who hasn't been in the Empire State building we always do the Skyride first before going up to the observatory. Pricey but worth it. And the Observatory is BEST after nightfall to see the city all lit up!!
We were first time travelers to NYC in the summer and as wonderful as it was to go up, it was crowded. I believe the tour allowed for shorter wait time to get to elevators, etc. Great place to visit, but we went in the early afternoon, so next time I would try earlier and much later!
Great pre-show with the NY Skyride, and then the wonderful views of NYC from an iconic legend. Glad we did it. Hadn't been to observatory since 1964.
It was a great trip and good value. The arrangements were clear and everything went like clockwork. Would definitely use Viator again.
If you haven't been to New York at Christmas time you have to plan a trip it was wonderful and the views from the top are jaw dropping
Great tour! The Skyride was not for people with motion sickness, but was fine for us. The only disappointment was the number of "stops" during the line for the Skyride. Just when you thought you were in, you needed to wait in another chamber. The views were amazing!
Amazing ! Well worth every dime. I was so taken by the atmosphere I proposed to my girlfriend
Wonderful. We all loved it. Grandparents, parents and grandchildren!
This was another good program except for the long ticket line. Showed the voucher but still had to stand in line to get a ticket. The Skyride sort of set the scene before going to the upper levels.
I loved it! The virtual N.Y. SKYRIDE was cute, and bypassing the lines by purchasing this package did help. The movement of the lines were organized and we moved through very quickly. Once at the observation deck the views were amazing! Will do it again!
Very easy to get up to the 86th floor. I could not do the SKYRIDE because of my back issues. I didn't know that would be an issue but it was. My sister-in-law did it and enjoyed it. I liked that we were able to take pictures with King Kong.
We really enjoyed the skyride. It showed us a lot of sights of New York. The Empire State Building was great. Lots of people. It was great that we didn't have to wait in long lines. We went in the morning, I would recommend that.
