Empire State Building: Reserve Ticket Obtained

There are many types of tickets one can buy to get up to the top of the building, and we have decided it only best to get the best ticket they offer - - - and it's worth it! We get the full-on cut-the-line ticket to the Empire State Building (usually 2 hour wait). What you don't know until you get there is that it's such a maze once you get in. With the ticket we get you, you are walking right through that maze right to the elevators. People will be jealous of you. And when it's time to come down, you are cutting that line too. If you wish to stay longer than 45 minutes then you might be foregoing hotel drop-off option. No worries, you can take a taxi back to most hotels at a great rate. Take your time. If you have seen enough after 45 minutes, then we will drop you off at your hotel after a long comprehensive tour day.
