Rockefeller Center staff are clueless
David_A, Oct 2022
The problem was not the actual tour or the tour guide (David) the problem was the Rockefeller Center staff were absolutely CLUELESS!!! No one could tell us where to go to redeem our QR code to get a tour time. It’s was absolutely ridiculous and very frustrating experience dealing with Rockefeller Center security people. Just awful!!!
Autumn in Rockefeller Center with Viator

I enjoyed the explanations of the history, theme and quality of the art and architecture. However, we did NOT find the guide to be engaging nor enthusiastic about the tour, the tourists and the explanations. I would suggest the tour with a guide who is not perfunctory…
Not an Architecture/Art tour

This is NOT an architecture/art walking tour. It is a Top of the Rock experience. View is great but call it what it is.

Our tour guide, Debi, was informed, entertaining and kept us together on the busy city streets. While moving us along, she didn't rush us! Debi is knowledgeable and has her heart into this tour and such respect for the Rockefeller family and what they have given to the enhancement of New York City and our world!

Difficulty obtaining physical ticket from email confirmation

The tour guide, Mindy, did a phenomenal job of providing all the information on the tour. It was the obtaining of the ticket for the tour that created a lot of frustration for me.

our tour guide was great, walked a little fast for us as we are a little older. Getting to where the tour began from was TERRIBLE. we were sent to several locations, up and down levels.
