Lindsey was so informative and you can tell she loves her job.....she knew the answers to all the questions asked and had great insight to all of the art and the building that you would have never known just by your own visual.

Hour-long tour of the buildings, art, and urban design that make up Rockefeller Center, one of New York's most beautiful public spaces. Well-informed guide gives you just enough information to small-sized group through microphone and ear phones. Fascinating tour of gorgeous city art.

Our guide Lindsay was fun, smart and engaging. Although I've visited Rockefeller Center numerous times as a native New Yorker, the tour made me love it in a new way.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of

We only have time for one tour. What do you recommend - the Rockefeller tour or the Radio City Music Hall tour? Also, if I have NYC Explorer pass, can I still make reservations for a particular time?

Response from RockefellerCenter | Property representative |
Though you can certainly purchase upon arrival, we strongly advise purchasing tickets in advance to guarantee entry at the time you desire.
If we purchase the Rock Pass, can we do the tour on one day and the observation deck on another?

Hello! When purchasing the Rock Pass, the two attractions must be scheduled for the same day.
