The tour was great, our tour guide was so helpful and took us all through the buildings with such knowledge. Worth going just for the tour as he offers so many handy pieces of information!

The whole layout was a bit confusing - where and who was taking your picture if you did the upgrade - where do you go to pick up your picture. Skip the upgrade and just take as many pics as possible once you get to the top.

We got up extremely early on a Monday morning end of December and went down to the Rockefeller Center. I've learned it is best to get there by 6am to get a spot on TV. Anyway, she loved it which that's all it matters. Just expect to stand there for quite some time = (hours) if you want to be... More

Took my husband to New York for his 40th birthday. What an amazing time we had. Brought a New York city day pass which enabled us to visit all the attractions I had researched for the trip. Went to the Rockerfeller center during the day and saw truly stunning views of Central Park and the new York skyline. It was... More

We had purchased the New York Pass so made sure to take advantage of the Rockefeller Center Tour. We are SO glad that we did. Our tour guide, Helga Stimpfl, made the tour so interesting and educational. It exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend taking this tour!

Decided to take a trip to the top of the Rockefeller Centre instead of the Empire State Building on this trip to New York. The whole experience to get to the top was unpleasant, confusing and very stressful! We had tickets for a set time and we're shouted at several times even though it was unclear as to where we...

The Rockefeller Center is iconic to NYC and I would consider it to be a must on any first-time-tourist's list. You could sit there and people-watch for hours (without spending a dime) or enjoy the many attractions and stores nearby. I visited on Easter Sunday after having watched the "parade" on 5th Avenue and was not disappointed. Easily one of... More

Definitely worth a visit. It lets you take in a great view of Manhattan inlcuding the empire state building. I would choose this over the empire state building only because all my photots will have the empire state building in them and that makes NYC for me!!

Just loved this entire area. Rockefeller Center, the ice rink, NBC studios, Radio City and 5th Ave. It's just a great area of NYC to explore.
