Well worth the purchase after an extremely long 19 hour flight. Extremely polite helpful staff. Beautiful breakfast then refreshing shower, duty-free shopping just down a floor. Then back for a couple of hours of comfortable seating in the quietness of a podding seat before a 5 star lunch. Met fellow travellers who also were impressed with the service.

We had a fantastic time with Maria on this tour. She created a great atmosphere. And our final drinks at the At.Mosohere bar / restaurant on the 123rd floor was so special.

Alena did a great job! She was a wonderful guide and showed us the best points of interest in an amazing way! We loved this tour and recommend Alena as a tour guide!
