The best part of the tour was to be able to look out of the six floor at the road below. It is amazing to stand where history was made.
IMPORTANT: You will not be able to look out the exact window that the shot was taken. They blocked that section off with glass panels. You can look out of the next window over (which is almost as good).
The day we went was difficult because of the volume of people. They give you an audio tour headset, but they talk forever at each station. When people are listening and reading, it goes VERY slow.
There is two floors 6th and 7th. The 6th floor is full but the 7th floor is practically empty.
if you are a photo nut like me, be aware that you will not be allowed to take any photos inside the building. I was dying to take a picture from the window, but nope. The best place that i found to take a picture is from grassy area between the two street. Stand your subject on the first X and then shoot up toward the 6th floor window.. great shot.. just time it so that your subject does not get ran over. The red lights dont last very long lol.
