I went on this tour with my 12 year old niece. We both throughly enjoyed it. It takes 1 hour which was perfectly timed, not rushed at all. It was nice to see thd building without the hustle and bustle if we were there for an event. There are a lot of stairs to climb which I think some on... More

I have been on the tour in the past but this time I was disappointed. It seemed rushed and we skipped over many of the highlights. We were told their were more than one type of tours which was not the way it was in the past. They were preparing for the America's Got Talent Show which may have been... More

Taking a group of teens for Stage Door Tour; everyone loved it! If you don't get a chance to get a ticket to see a show, this is the best way to get a glance of the magnificent stage.

The opulence, grandeur and history of Radio City - saved from total demolition at the 11th hour - will simply blow the theatre/showbiz enthusiast away. The tour takes in the backstage area, famous for everything from legends of stage and screen, the fabulous Rockettes and - uh - real camels, the breathtaking auditorium and the wonderfully restored art deco wonders...

It was a neat historic building to tour. You get to see all areas of the building. We saw the Rockettes practicing and also got to meet one too.

This tour is well worth the $15 (for seniors) fee. We learned about the history of the building and got to see the inner workings as well as a visit from a Rockette. This is a magnificent theater that was almost torn down in the late 1970's. The city saved it and Madison Square Garden stepped in to manage it.... More

Enjoyed the backstage tour very much, our tour guide was wonderful and very helpful. Enjoyed the grandness of the theater, all of the ornate decorations and chandeliers, etc. Meeting one of the Rockettes was a nice touch. It was an interesting tour and we're glad we caught it this trip to NYC.

The tour was very good, I would recommend it, but beware. We arrived 15 minutes early after touring around NYC so that we would have time to use a rest room before the tour began. They would not allow us to use one when we arrived. Two staff members assured us that they would soon let us through the doors... More

Firstly, the art deco design just blew my socks off, i love this style of design and it was just amazing to see it on such an opulent scale. Secondly, the tour was informative and took you all over the music hall, through lobbies, lounges, stair cases and into the auditorium! it was informative as well as interesting! I loved... More

My mother took me to many movies here when I was in grade school. It was sad to hear that there are not regular movies any more. You get to interview a Rockette and see all the behind the scenes stuff upstairs. When we were there they were in rehearsal for the Tony Awards later thet week.
