My wife and I spent 8 days in NY about a week ago. We tried to do everything- Rockefeller center, Empire state bldg, Statue of Liberty, Public Library, attend "Wicked" at Gershwin Theater, eat at Carnegies Deli and Juniors, and just do a lot of walking and looking. The best part of the trip was the tour of Rockefeller Center.... More

A must do to see Manhattan from above. Fantastic view for the money. Love looking at the building details and the different architecture designs. Next time we will go at night.

We had a luck one day, to have especially sunny weather, when decided to go toward Rockfeller Plaza, or let's call it the Rockfeller Center, the whole complex of buildings between 47th and 51th street, and also from Fifth to Seventh Avenues. To be exact, there are in total 19 commercial edificies and all built by Rockefeller family. Among the... More

Had a terrific time on Kim's tour! Gained a true appreciation for the spectacular works of art that are so rich in history and adorn so many of the beautiful buildings that make up Rockefeller Center. It was great for myself and my 11 year old twins. The tour was educational and fun! We really enjoyed it!

Rockefeller center is one of the well known places in NYC. If you can chose-come during winter time when it is turned into a great skating arena. There are no words that can describe the feeling of skating in the middle of the city with all the flags hanging around and people watching all around.

The Rockefeller centre is excellent. It's worth doing a tour as the tour guide takes you to other buildings that were owned by the rocker fellas and goes though all the history attached to it. Of course the top of the the rock is a just.

I love coming here when it snows as well. it does get packed around the last 2-3 weeks with street closings but it is a must see spot in New York.

Worthy spending an hour here, for the photo enthusiast, you'll get some amazing pics! Feels like this is the pulse of NYC! Also, if you are a 30 Rock fan, YOU HAVE TO DO IT! Just a little FYI, plan about 2 months ahead! You will not be able to get there and get in!

Both the tour itself and going up to the Top of the Rock were great. Colin was our tour guide and he was fantastic- would have loved to have more time with him showing us around and educating us about many interesting things. He really knows his stuff and is passionate about it which is very cool. Didn't have time... More

I figured I would only need to choose one - either the Rockefeller Center or the Empire State Building. I'm glad I chose the Rock! The views are incredible from the top deck, plus you can then get pictures of the Empire State Building. Loved being able to see and appreciate just how huge Central Park is, as well as... More
