This was a great tour!! Very informative about Radio City Music Hall and the Rockettes!! Our guide Joyce was so nice and made sure we all had a great time. The Rockette we had pics with was also very nice and answered a lot of our questions. Can't wait to catch a show there again!!

A one hour tour of Radio City Music Hall. You get to go under the stage, see the hydraulics that lift and lower the stages, see the theater, hear a lot of history and take a picture with and meet a Rockette (you can purchase the picture for an additional fee). Very informative and the perfect length. There are a... More

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
