Very informative tour. It lasted about 75 minutes and we were even able to go on stage and meet a Rockette. Our tour guide was helpful and knew a lot of the venues history. Definitely would recommend this tour if in NYC.

This will be my favorite tour always! My sister and I both love Musical Theatre. We toured the hall in mid June. Having seen the Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall a few years ago, it was AMAZING to see how it all happens....More

We have an interest in theatres and guided tours, so for us a tour of Radio City was an important part of this trip to NYC. The scale of the theatre is vast - it's twice the size of the largest theatres in the UK....More

What an amazing place! It was hard to fathom the foresight that went into building this place back in the great depression. The open spaces, the auditorium and the stage mechanism (that hasn't broken down since its construction) were simply mind boggling. And all of...More

I think the tour last 75 minutes. You may not be able to tour just prior to a performance (as you’ll be walking the halls while the performers are getting ready). Good luck on getting tickets—it’s a wonderful tour!

Be careful about taking this tour anywhere near the time the shows are running. When things are busy, you end up missing some of the tour.

Radio city site is informative. The tour is extremely thorough. It is very historical. Lots of great stories, pictures, costumes through the ages. Many surprises too.
