Absolutely great!

Loved going up the Empire State Building looking over New York City!!! Was a lovely sunny day so got some brilliant views. It was a very quick process getting through security and picking up tickets. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Also purchased a ticket when there to go up to floor 102 which was excellent, glad we did it!!! Definitely worth doing either or both floors.

This building is so incredibly beautiful inside as well as providing amazing views across the city. Of course it is everything you expect but also the staff are helpful, friendly and funny. You can stay as long as you want and there are shops and restaurants on the ground floor. Naturally the souvenir store is overpriced but it's not in-your-face. Overall, a really great, memorable experience.

This is a must if you visit New York. It's a very emotional experience. You just can't imagine what it was like for everyone in and around the building when it collapsed. The Fire Fighters/ Police/ Emergencie Services that were also in or near the buildings. The Meusem has been set out very well and tells a story from when the first Emergency calls were made. The heat from the fire was incredible when you look st the steel from the building and the ladders off the Fire Engine battled and twisted. The items that were found and a photo of everyone that was killed that day. It effected so many families loosing a family member or friend or work college. Let alone the Fire Stations lost so many Fire Fighters.

These tickets were purchased as a gift

We had no problem booking theses tickets and our friend was delighted to receive them. Would maybe be a good idea to do a gift voucher type of deal where the print out has the persons name on it.

Yes i went with my 18 year old daughter.It was a marvellous experience - we went on a Monday evening about 8.30pm so we saw from the 86th floor New York by twilight - it was spectacular.Also although we had to queue, everything was really well organised.The building itself was very Art Deco - very well worth a visit.I booked online in the UK and had no problems at all with my E tickets.
