Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York Ticket
A must do in NYC. The whole having to exchange your voucher for tickets and a time is a pain, but other than that it was worth the time and money. Read the instructions carefully, because even if you pick a date and time, until the voucher is exchanged, they are not guaranteed. Beautiful views of the city though.

So pretty up there. You could see all over the city at all angles. And it was so quiet. You did not hear city noise at all.

Fantastic views over Manhattan at sunset including the iconic Empire State Building. It is crowded but you can get a good shot if your patient. Great to be able to use 360 degree camera on monopod stick. Worth it done this twice and have not regretted it.

Mind blowing views

Top of the Rock Observation Deck, New York Ticket
This experience was mind blowing, the views from the Top of the Rock observation deck are stunning. I would absolutely recommend this to others, and exchanging the Viator voucher when we arrived in New York was really easy. The weather forecast wasn't good for the date we'd originally booked, but they were very flexible in letting us change our date and we had brilliant weather and an amazing view! I would use Viator again.
