Empire State Building with Premium Experience tickets

The Empire State Building is one of the most iconic buildings in the world. It has a beautiful art deco design and is an engineering marvel. Due to this fact, I splurged on our tour tickets and went for the “Premium Experience” so that my daughter, who is studying Civil Engineering, would have an informative tour of a famous engineering marvel.

The tour was well worth it! We had a fabulous tour guide named Renita, and she guided us throughout the building pointing out engineering tidbits for my daughter. I love how she tailored the tour for my daughters’ interests, it was amazing!

We were able to see the views from both the 102nd and 86th floors as well as a guided tour through the museum. In fact, the entire experience was a private, guided tour! It was incredible to learn about the art deco architecture, engineering facts, and history of this iconic building.

Renita also took photos of us, which I am not sharing on the blog because my daughter would prefer to not be on my blog, but they are beautiful family photos we will definitely cherish.

Isn’t the art deco light fixture below amazing? I loved learning about the interior fixtures, the limestone and granite from Indiana, and the history behind designing the interior.

Taking a tour of the Empire State Building is definitely an activity I recommend. Also, the Premium Experience tickets are also worth the price, so I highly recommend going with those tickets when you visit! You won’t regret the private tour.
