“Excellent Tour”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

If you're in New York on either a first or a repeat visit and have done the standards like the Hop On Hop Off bus, 9/11 area, cruise, Central Park, and others, and have about 1.5 hours to spare I'd recommend that you consider this tour. Of course my wife and I had heard of Lincoln Center, but never having been there we went away after the tour highly impressed. Our guide, Yoko, was outstanding, friendly and full of knowledge . She talked about the complex and its history. We then visited 3 of the buildings; the David H. Koch Theater, where we were able to watch some of a ballet that was going on at the time, Symphony Hall, and the Opera House. We spent 20 - 25 minutes in each building as Yoko toured us through each. We learned and saw so much, but I'll let her, or your guide. tell you about it all when you go.

“NYC Ballet”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This was the highlight of my trip to NYC (1st time visiting). I saw Balanchine's Jewels. Bought tickets in advance $89 - and had great seats. I would recommend the second tier seating and pack your sequins! Phenomenal.

“Interesting - I Had No Idea”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This tour is an eyeopener for someone like me, who had no idea what all Lincoln Center involved. We got to listen to The NY Philharmonic practice and got to go backstage and in the auditorium for the NY Ballet and Opera. Well worth it.

“Music appreciation”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

I used to be a subscriber, going every year. However great the performance it was always spoiled by the rudeness of the "bridge and tunnel crowd" who would get up to leave in the middle of the last piece (usually a symphony). Got so bad the orchestra actually would interrupt itself to let those folks leave. Gave up on Lincoln Center because of it. Pity, Gilbert conducts well and the orchestra and guest performers are excellent.
