TRAVEL TIPS & TIDBITS

Iconic NYC Experience
The Empire State Building Premium Experience is a private, customized and educational guided 90-minute tour for groups of up to seven guests.
The tour that takes place throughout the Empire State Building (ESB), includes the beautifully restored Art Deco lobby, ESB’s Celebrity Walk featuring famous celebrities and dignitaries who have visited ESB, the Sustainability Exhibit showcasing ESB’s groundbreaking, award-winning energy efficiency retrofit, the ‘Dare to Dream’ Exhibit detailing the historic construction of the building, the 86th floor open-air Observatory, and the grand finale of the 102nd floor Observatory which provides unparalleled, 360-degree views of New York City and beyond.
ESB Observatory Ambassadors are able to customize each tour to the group’s interests, allowing group members to explore new areas, learn facts and trivia not covered in a standard visit, and focus on those areas of the experience that are most important to them.

The Empire State Building Premium Experience includes VIP priority express access throughout the visit and a commemorative souvenir photograph.
Guests are encouraged to download the Empire State Building’s exclusive complimentary multimedia app prior to their visit on iTunes and Google Play.
The Premium Experience is available three times a day and is priced at $150 per person. Reservations are only available via an online appointment system.
