I LOVED THIS TOUR BECAUSE HAVING LEFT MY CITY IN 1961 IT WAS WONDERFUL TO SHARE IT WITH MY FRIEND. IT WAS PERFECTLY PLANNED AND THE GUIDE WAS GREAT
We decided to take the last tour of the day, as we wanted to go up to the top of the rock as evening was falling, so we could see Manhattan lit up in the dusk.
Our tour guide was friendly, funny and very informative about the history of the Rockefeller buildings and the art on and in them. We have been on this tour before, and enjoyed it so much in a previous visit to NYC, we decided to do it again!
The bonus about the tour is that your guide will get you straight up to the top of the rock, bypassing the queues.
The observation deck of the rock was extremely busy, but we got to see Central Park before is was too dark. It was great to see the Empire State building lit up in red, white and blue.
I recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of the Rockefeller centre.
10 out of 10!
Interesting tour of building first together with its history and the spectacular artwork inside, then we watched the 3 short films before soaring up through blue lights to the viewing decks on floors 67 and 70. Loved the glass-roofed elevator! The highest floor is best as it gives virtually uninterrupted views of the city. Lots of space for everyone and no security queues. Weather was a bit hazy on our afternoon visit but it didn't detract from our enjoyment and on the right day, a sunset view would be indeed be wonderful.
Great. No queues. You can use it any day or time despite selecting a date, great if the weather is not great you can wait for a brighter day.
The views from the Top of the Rock are fantastic. We also did the tour of the Rockerfeller Centre which was well worth it. If the weather conditions are not favourable you can change the day/time. A must do activity!
Great views of the city. Pretty well organized at the site to get people up to the top and back down. Would advise getting there early in the day to get a ticket time close to the time of your arrival at the Center. We had about an hour and 10 minute gap between our arrival and our appointment time so walked to Times Square to pick-up our hop-on-hop-off bus tickets.
Excellent view, well organized and had enough time at the top to see everything.
The view from the Top of the Rock left me and my friends breathless. The uppermost deck without the glass walls is definitely the best part even for someone like me who has acrophobia. I just cant miss that experience. Would want to try this again. Having prepaid the tour saved us precious time.
AMAZING........this is a MUST GO attraction when in New York. The crowd is well controlled so you never feel like you are packed in. Be prepared for lines and a little waiting. But well worth it. If you want to be up the top at a certain time then go early and book that time. You MUST MUST do this tour.
I would recommend to anyone, that this is the perfect way to see New York and to orientate oneself with all the different regions of the city. The view is spectacular, the staff were helpful, friendly and very entertaining. This was an excellent start to what was a wonderful week inThe Big Apple.
This gave us an opportunity to view the magnificence of the city and put everything in perspective - well worth the money in my mind.
Amazing view of the Empire State Building and buildings in New York. You are actually outside! Go around 8 and see it in the day and the night for a stunning view.
This tour was great we booked for one day n was told it was 3 hour wait to next tour, but was told we can book another day to suit which we did. Brilliant at night.
Fantastic, like no other city I've exer been too. A must do for anyone.
