We did the VIP tour and we highly recommend this tour, definitely worth every penny!Our tour guide Heather was very knowledgeable about top of the rock but also about things to do in NYC!She’s very easy to get along with and chat but also at the same time an amazing photographer! Trust me when I say it’s worth every penny as the views are spectacular you do want to understand the best that NYC has to offer and capture those precious moments, Heather has it all covered!Thank you to Heather for an amazing experience, will definitely do it again and highly recommend for anyone coming to visit to get Heather as the guide!

We visited the Top of the Rock on 28th December.We pre-booked this experience, but you can walk-in on the day - there was a line outside for both groups of people.It was less busy than expected, though the elevator is crowded going up with absolutely no social distancing.The view alone makes this an absolute must-see, but the gift shop and the Rockefeller Center themselves were fantastic.Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.

It was a misty December evening and we were advised the views were very poor. We could have changed the day of our visit but with limited time and the weather forecast not showing any improvement we went ahead. We had our photo's taken against the green screen and watched the informative and interesting video's about the history of the Rock and the Christmas Tree. The lift was so smooth you really didn't feel like you'd gone so high. The view wasn't 100% but we'd already been told that, however it was still an amazing experience and all the lights stood out, we saw most of the buildings. On the upper deck we met the wonderful 'Patrick' who works there and he kindly took photo's of us together. He also was super friendly and helpful, he really enhanced our experience, he's a real asset. TIP - get your phone/camera ready to view the ride in the lift on the way up. We had fast-track tickets so didn't have to wait in the queue which was good.

Visited as a couple a few days ago. Well organised and structured for access. We did have to queue a little but not too bad. Once you go up there the views are great of all around the city. We chose to go up at night.

Even with a timed ticket, we had to wait in a very line outside. Once inside, it was a bit disorganized with the lines, etc. this may be because it was a very busy time of year and during the pandemic! The observation deck was very cool, both inside and outside, then, we went to the top 2 decks. Fantastic views from all sides!

Really enjoyed these views. Bought a ticket on Christmas Eve and 6:30 pm. For 7:00 entrance time. Entered right at 7:00 pm and was on the observation deck in 5 minutes. No need for VIP express pass. Amazing views all the way down to Freedom Tower and all the way across the park. Clear views of NJ and Queens. Really recommend this over the Empire State Building.

Beautiful view at night. The lights are colorful, big city, felt like being at the top of the world. It was great seeing couples and families making memories.

We did the tour and observation deck. The tour was the best part! The observation deck was packed full of people so you had to shove your way to the glass if you wanted a picture without a bunch of random people in it. Highly recommend the tour, if you don’t mind waiting or pushing through people for a great view the deck was cool.
