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.

“Showbiz Heaven! Take the Tour, Then See a Show”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

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 of the foyer and landings. Oh and lets not forget the restrooms (loos to us Brits) where you'll more likely want to spend the night rather than a penny because they are, quite simply, gorgeous. There is a movie interlude which documents the history of the Music Hall and the opporturnity to meet one of the world famous Rockettes, a member of the resident dance troupe, well known for their military precision high kicks and stunning costumes. Ideally, my top tip would be to take the tour and then see a show in the evening because then you'll REALLY get to see what this legendary entertainment powerhouse can do!

“Nice tour”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

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.

“Historic building!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

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. The guide was very nice and helpful. There are a lot of stairs, but elevators were available for those that needed them. The art on the walls is impressive and details about the restoration were interesting. You also get a bathroom break midway through the tour.

“Great Tour of the Backstage Workings of Radio City Music Hall!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

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.
