What people are saying about Rockefeller Center

Overall rating

4.5 / 5

based on 11,344 reviews

I can't recommend this pass highly enough. It is such a really useful pass that gave extra surprises on our visits including an evening visit to Empire State building. Overall, it was excellent value for money. Well worth the money and we have already recommended to others several times. Very glad we bought it. We got an evening admission to the Rockefeller observatory, spectacular views during golden hour, great photo opportunity. Additional exhibits in the Natural History museum were also covered. Having the pass also gave us structure for making sure we visited the attractions covered. Easy process to buy and use the pass.

We visited 11th January at 2pm. Easy access and quiet at this time of year. Great views of the city and obviously the Empire State building. It got busier as we waited for the sunset, but still able to get great photographs without being squashed up! Very enjoyable way to pass a few hours in an iconic venue!

Good value pass. Cheaper on Get your guide than other websites (and direct). Easy to book in advance. In the winter I would book any view points as late as possible to check the forecast. We had poor views from the Empire state building having booked a few days in advance (forecast changed)

The city pass was great value for money and gave us a big discount on our visits. Was simple to use and allowed us quick entry into the various tours.

We had a great time. Everyone was helpful and Kevin was a great guide.
