The Premium Experience, solely available through limited, timed, advance reservations made online at www.esbnyc.com, takes groups of up to seven guests throughout the Empire State Building (ESB), including the beautifully restored Art Deco lobby, ESB’s Celebrity Walk featuring famous celebrities and dignitaries who have visited ESB, the Sustainability Exhibit showcasing ESB’s groundbreaking, award-winning energy efficiency retrofit, the “Dare to Dream” Exhibit detailing the historic construction of the building, the 86th floor open-air Observatory, and the grand finale of the 102nd floor Observatory which provides unparalleled, 360-degree views of New York City and beyond.  ESB Observatory Ambassadors are able to customize each tour to the group’s interests, allowing group members to explore new areas, learn facts and trivia  not covered in a standard visit, and focus on those areas of the experience that are most important to them.
