    Highly recommended
    Nicholas_P, Apr 2024
    Excellent! I’d highly recommend this tour. We booked for 6:05pm and arrived at the entrance at 6:05pm.. to be admitted entry in front of 200+ people that were waiting in cues.. We were at the top about two minutes later. We stayed until 8:30pm and while it was pretty crowded by then the exit process was smooth and we were back on the street by 9:00.
    Just do it- you’ll never be disappointed

    Absolutely awestruck by the view. Perfect way to end the day with sunset/dusk/night views. So worth the time!!!
    Tickets didn’t work despite being charged by Viator
    Charu_G, Apr 2024
    Our tickets for Top of the Rock purchased via Viator did not work despite having a confirmed date, time, and ticket from Viator. We were charged by Viator $173.11, waited in line and up on entry were told our tickets weren’t validated. We are waiting for a full refund. This was a waste of our last evening in NYC. Very disappointed.
    Fantastic experience
    Sonja_N, Apr 2024
    We very much enjoyed the experience of being on top of the rock. The entrance was smooth and barely had to wait to go in the lift as I read it could get very busy but the timed entrance worked well. Trying to get back tho was a different kettle of fish. We were on top and the queues to get back down were immense and it was cold and very windy. It was probably everyone who had stayed to see the lights come on as when it was still bright outside, the queues weren’t there so beware.

    Had a really nice time. Lovely experience and the views were amazing on such a clear day. Awesome experience and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good memory of NY.

    Just remarkable - the view are simply stunning. We went at sunset which is peak time, so it was rammed, but still worth going.
    Expensive, buy tickets directly at rockefeller center on a shiny day
    Alec_G, Apr 2024
    It was pretty expensive, everything was closed. It rained and there weren’t many options to reschedule, and the cancelling fee was 100% with bistro. You’re in NYC, there are a million ways to better use that money, and if you really want to go to an observation deck just buy tickets to the Empire State Building.

    Very easy to use and very up to date thank you, had a great time. Very convenient Was nice didn't have to worry about losing tickets
    Don’t go there!...
    Alona_Z, Mar 2024
    Don’t go there! The worst place I’ve been (( Go to summit one especially in the evening if you want to enjoy the view.
    Great experience and view
    Donna_R, Mar 2024
    It is just an experience you have to do. The view is like nothing else. The centre is also great to look around. Great value for money
    A huge queue to get up to...
    Karen_P, Mar 2024
    A huge queue to get up to the top (only one elevator working) but well worth the wait for the fantastic views of Manhattan ❤️
    Still one of the best views of Central Park and New York City
    BigPapaYo, Mar 2024
    The view alone is worth every penny spent. They now have a ride on a beam as well that takes viewing the city to a whole other level!
    Cherine_C, Mar 2024
    Watched the sunset and created a memorable experience. Thoroughly enjoyed it. It definitely lived up to my expectations
    Amazing views
    Naomi_D, Feb 2024
    Breathtaking views at 360°! Lines went down quickly and was on the top deck in no time. Paid an extra $25 pp for the beam. It was expensive but this is our first time in NYC
    Christine_P, Feb 2024
    The views are the best in the city, this is a must see especially at night, it was breathtaking and worth the money
    Not happy
    Bryan_R, Feb 2024
    The whole reason I ordered tickets was to ride the beam, but that was $25 additional dollars more per person. When you click tide the beam, you shouldn’t have to click again, ride the beam. Very disappointed.
    Amazing view. Poor ticket communication
    Colin_A, Feb 2024
    View was amazing. Had a problem with tickets. I had an email off Viator saying this is you ticket. We presented it there only to find out that it was not our ticket. We had to go back and start again. Then she said the time we were booked in was full and we would have to wait from 6pm til 7-50pm. Disappointing
    Yvonne_Z, Feb 2024
    Good view. I think 2-3 people are the most suitable. If more than 4, this price is an expensive. Average recommendation.
    Went at night time was...
    Yvonne_L, Feb 2024
    Went at night time was beautiful to see the skyline at night! Definitely worth a visit. Very cold as outside so wrap up.
    Top of the rock at night
    Kelly_J, Feb 2024
    We did the rock at night, views were amazing. We’d done Empire State Building 2 days before and personally preferred that to the rock. Disappointed too that the Beam wasn’t open but the weather had been bad during the day. Overall it was ok, just not our favourite observation deck.
