What people are saying about New York City

Empire State is a must for anyone visiting NYC

Great views obviously. A good orientation to the city. I recommend the express pass to those who can justify spending the money. Easily saved us an hour. With quick visits to a lot of sights, it is the only way o would do it again. A little annoyed by people who grabbed a spot and stayed their for 15 or more mins. I have 11 and 13 yr old, etc difficult to get them to be able to see at times. I think that is more of a function of when we went (sunset) and people thinking of themselves then the workers though I did hear one of them say they’d let too many people up. Overall, great experience friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Fantastic experience with a nice surprise thrown in .Be prepared !

This was well worth the visit. We had a great experience as a fair four.,and although the tour lasts 90minutes we were not rushed along . The cafe was rather expensive ,but you can get refills on your fizzy drinks. It doesn't take long to get to the top and exit and the guides were very welcoming and informative.

Excellent tour and spectacular tour guide! We loved Jenn!

What a professional tour service! Our tour guide, Jenn, turned a 4 hour tour into a wonderful and touching journey! She was courteous and knowledgeable, and so enthusiastic, we were sad when it was over. One of my favorite parts of the tour was when Jenn recited The Great Colossus by Emma Lazarus. I was in tears!

Poignant, sensitive, respectful and a true memorial to the fallen

So we’ll done, even with all the bitter memories on that bright blue day none of us can forget. This was my second visit and I saw more than I had seen the last time. Helps us never to forget the heroes, the fallen, and all the families marked by such a tragic day...

At the age of 59 pure joy to see so many iconic sights in one day.

Book a guide every time. Our guide Nina filled our minds with so much information. My son and I are still talking about our first day in New York. Without Nina, it would of been impossible to take in all that Liberty and Ellis Island had to tell us.
