It was great. We had to stand in line to get a ticket for the tour and at the Rock we had to stand in line again and we got there at 4 o'clock and could not go up until 8:20 pm I think if you are on a tour the tickets should be ready for you, because you know about what time you are getting there. I bought on line that should take care of all tickets. We enjoyed the tour.

Most of the time we could not make out what your guide was saying .He said if we couldn’t understand him we were on the wrong bus. Excellent trip though on bus and ferry good way to see New York. Never did get to the top of the Rock.The earliest elevator we could get goin up was 18:30 but we had a Theatre booking at 20:00 . so we missed out on the view from the top. We thought our tickets gave quick access to the elevators going up and down .They didn’t make any difference at all which was really disappointing.
