We had a guide called Helga, very informative and funny too. Well worth doing this tour as you discover so much the buildings and art are wonderful. One of my fav places we visited.

I never really thought much about Rockefeller Center until I watched 30 Rock. The best was the view of the city. It is a expensive ticket to go to the top of the Rock but worth it. We loved our view of the city and it was not as busy as Empire State building. I recommend seeing it if you... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the Rockefeller Center tour. It's one thing to just look at the artwork and buildings and another to get the background story on what you're looking at. The tour was conducted both inside and outside of the Rockefeller buildings. Everyone had their own personal headsets so you did not miss a thing that the... More

The tour around the Rockafeller buildings was somewhat difficult although Lindsey did try her best to make it interesting. I am sure many found it facinating but it dragged from one pretty non-descript building to another. Yes, the interior was really decorative but anyone could see that for themselves. If you are into art deco interiors then this would probably... More

Sort of place you have heard off nothing special so while in the area we had a quick visit as just of fifth avenue. Nothing really special and many places in the world are similar these days.

Our tour guide, Lindsay, was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgable and made our tour really interesting. We really learned a lot from her during the 1 hour tour. This tour gives you and overview of all the buildings owned by the Rockefeller group and the important buildings in the vicinity as well as the history of it... More

We took the Art and Architecture Tour of Rockefeller Center, we saw and heard about the art and architecture in and around Rockefeller Center. We learned about the many buildings that make up RC, the astounding amount of square footage occupied by RC, and the underground retail space. We then took the elevators up to the Top of The Rock...

walked over to the Center. I was not really moved or anything here. I guess if you are a real TV fan, then maybe but just a building otherwise!

So many people just focus on the Top Of The Rock - which the view is undoubtedly amazing, (in my opinion it is better than the view from the Empire Building as it offers different levels of views to Manhattan and shorter queueing time.) However, there are much more to see and to do at the Rockefeller Center - like... More

if you are going to the Top of Rock the tour prior to this is definitely worth doing. it costs $29 to go to the top three floors and $40 for a one hour tour and history of Rockefeller family and their buildings. it does take you outside so consider the weather but for a further $11 it is definitely...
