Awesome view, but the queues are a little bit stressing. But it is normal, because we're talking about one of the most visited attractions in the city.
Very well organized....we had no control over the weather as it was less than 12 degrees on the 86th floor...probably why there weren't any crowds!!
We had such a great time on this excursion. Purchasing the tickets in advance allowed us to whisk right on up.
Went as a family of 5aged 11 to 49.Iwas very nervous about this due to been acrophibic,yes my legs where wobbly to start with but I and #39;m so glad I went up.I evently plucked the curious up to take a look and it is the most amazing view.Dont be put of by the height give it a try I would definitely go aga
Well organized - even though it was cold and a little wet - it was January 2nd! - we still loved it!
Amazing sights and you are fast tracked through the building because of the skip the line tickets saved queuing as time is precious in new york
We went in Jan and there were no queues anyway, but I and #39;ve never been announced as a VIP so many times in my life - this alone was worth the extra money for and #34;skip the line and #34; tickets, it made my guests feel super special!! Be aware that you need to make the effort to show your VIP wristband to guards.
This was a fabulous trip. Our voucher entitled us to make the trip on any day, not necessarily the date of our voucher dependent on weather. On the say if our trip the queue was enormous but we decided to persevere. It was worth the wait and the queue moved quickly.
Just amazing everything you expect and more wonderful but book in advance
Purchasing the VIP tickets to the Empire State Building was a great decision. My wife and I surpassed the two plus hour line as well as the cold and went right to the top in about 10 minutes. With the VIP tickets you are also swept back down in similar fashion. I have and will continue to recommend purchasing the VIP tickets for those seeking NYC in their travel plans especially during the holidays. My wife and I had the best time. Thanks Viator you have the best tours and will continue to use you in the future.
Great view. The wait was pretty long. I went at what seemed like peak time. I guess earlier or later times were better options. Overall it was great. Worth the wait.
The queue was round the block. We skipped the lit and went straight up. Saved us hours!!
The Empire State observatory was definitely worth the visit and rated as 2 or 3 for our NYC visit. However, as is often the case with skip the line tickets, there was not a separate entrance for VIP ticket holders. You must simply barrel your way through announcing your special status. One nice official saw our wristbands as we patiently waited in the line inside the building one of several lines throughout the tour--which we thought was for those like us, and told us to move on up and never stand in another line. There is one line you won't want to miss--the line where your picture is taken to be superimposed in front of a facade of the building--it's part of the Viator package and we missed it due to some kind of snafu.
Skip the line was the best for high season period. Buy it if you're visiting on holiday seasons or if you are travelling with many family members.
amazing! well worth doing. we paid a little extra to go to the top floor but it was very misty so didn't see an awful lot but still worth doing as we managed to get some photos as the mist cleared.
This was the third time I booked this tour. Sight from up there still amazes me

Second best travel money I ever spent! The best being signing up for TSA Precheck. This was a great deal. Get the Skip the line option. They give you a VIP wristband and you literally do bypass all the lines, both on the way up to the observatory and on the way down. I went on a Saturday afternoon and the line to get in the building was around the block, then there are about 5 more lines once you get inside, it was crazy. If I hadn't had this VIP pass I would never have waited all that time. Amazing. I was able to do so many other things the same day because I didn't waste any time waiting in the long lines at the Empire State building. Oh yes, and the view of NYC from the top is simply amazing, everything you've ever seen in the movies and more.
So worth the extra to get priority tickets and skip the lines!! Would do that again!
