A good tour worth a couple of hours of you time. Tour give you a good look around with human commentary. Be aware no seats while waiting for your tour time and lots of walking. Although wheelchairs are accommodated.

Such a phenomenal experience. Security was great, entrance and exit was incredibly simple and on time, I was surprised at the selection of food options before the event (our first time): Adele was flawless with great seats. We Could not have asked for a better evening!

My husband and I attended a sell out Adele concert on Monday night at Madison Square Gardens. The large crowd was very well managed, the concert was unbelievable. Many What was odd though, was my fifty year old partner was asked for his ID when he purchased a beer. Albeit, that many might think this as a compliment, not only... More

What a venue MSQ is...creates a great atmosphere for any event. The structure of the arena allows all seats to be very accessible and non-restrictive. A must GO if in NYC!

We enjoyed our tour of the Garden. We had the NYC passes and probably wouldn't have done the tour but we all were glad we did. It was a small group and our guide was great. So much memorabilia and tthe facility itself is awesome!

While the Garden is a piece of living NYC history, it is worth a visit if you have a particular concert or sporting event in mind. Do not buy tickets to just anything in order to be able to say you've visited the Garden. It is in serious need of renovation and the atmosphere is most appealing when you are... More

Loved this tour, Alex showed us around and he was so much fun! Really enjoyed seeing everything backstage and all the different areas and learning about the Garden, who had played there, who was due to perform etc. Brilliant tour!

We travelled over 24hrs to get to NYC and had insanely booked tickets to see Billy Joel an hour after arriving. We were exhausted but the concert was amazing and the Garden was so well organised.

We were in town on vacation and managed to bag a couple of tickets for the sold out show that evening. MSG is an awesome venue. Big enough to feel special but small enough to still feel intimate and part of the action still. Staff were great and I loved the strictly enforced 'no phones' policy throughout the performance!

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
