    Must do for a visit in New York. Great views and enjoyed the lego star wars displays during our family trip from the UK. Loved it!

    My wife and I had an unforgettable Friday night at the Edge Observation Deck. Sipping on expertly crafted tequila cocktails at the bar, we marveled at the city lights below, creating a truly magical atmosphere.

    The moment we stepped onto the outdoor section, we were mesmerized by the breathtaking view of New York City's sparkling skyline.

    One highlight was the exhilarating experience of walking on the transparent glass triangle, where we could literally see the taxis zooming by beneath our feet. It's hard to believe that only glass separated us from the bustling city streets below.

    While the entrance experience was seamless and enjoyable, the only downside was the lengthy wait to exit due to elevator queues. However, the overall experience more than made up for this minor inconvenience.

    In summary, Friday night at the Edge was the perfect date night. The combination of stunning views, delicious cocktails, and unique experiences made it an evening to remember. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a memorable activity during night out in New York City.

    Absolutely awesome! Really well organised on the ground and genuinely breathtaking in the air. Our pilot, Jimmy, was a real character, and knew his stuff. Made my 40th birthday one to remember for sure! It's not the cheapest thing to do, but for something special, it is well worth it! Do it, you won't regret it!

    We all enjoyed our tour guide and our tour. The guide was delightful and very informative. The food was delicious and going to family owned places made everything special. There was opportunities to sit and use restrooms so the entire tour was relaxing. We got to see some places we recognized from TV and movies.

    There are lots of buildings you can go up to see the sights of New York, this is one of the best. None of the observation deck visits are cheap, it's actually cheaper to go earlier as sunset times are more expensive. Didn't really have to queue, you're not rushed at all, there's plenty of history to read up on and different levels of deck to visit. You can also have your photos taken on the famous 'steel beam' which is fun. The bunting itself is also an architectural delight, so it's not just worth visiting for the views!

    What a great way to see so much of NYC in a short amount of time! The pilot pointed out so many sights on each side of the Hudson, New York and New Jersey.

    Really enjoyed the cruise around Manhattan, very relaxed way of seeing the city after a few days on our feet.
    Only marked down a star for the poor quality and limited options of catering on board, plus the tour guide was a little overly 'Team America' and dramatic about everything.

    the tour was very informative , especially when one is interested in architecture and city development.
    the tour guide was an architect himself, which I highly appreciated.
    Great views on top of that.
    The tour also gives you a perfect impression of the outline of all the five burrouhgs of New York City and how they are connected: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx.
    All in all: highly recommended
