Great guided behind the scenes tour - Loved hearing the history and seeing the team locker rooms. It was a small group so easy to hear the guide. Would suggest better up front info on the ticketing process. Everyone was confused about how it worked… stand in line at 10:30 but then get another designated time that might not work in your schedule for the day

WHERE THE AMAZING HAPPENS - Exceptional visit. Beyond expectations. They showed us around Madison Square Garden, telling us the history of the structure and the events that marked its history. Visited the suites and finally a visit to the sidelines where we were able to see an NBA player training live and the cheerleaders preparing for the evening game

Nice Tour - A pleasant one hour spent walking the halls and suites of MSG. It was interesting to listen to the tour guide’s stories told in a very enthusiastic tone. All your mementos will be in your photos taken.

Chance to see behind the scenes and live the suite life :D - I wasn't sure where we would be able to visit on the tour as there was WWE on the previous night but this did not disappoint!! Lawrence was our tour guide and he made sure we were packed with knowledge about the venue, its history and also some of the quirks of the venue. We got to go in various different parts of the arena including a suite which was extra special. We also timed it well as the New York Rangers had a game that day and were out practicing so we got to see that too! I took the 10:30am tour and this was plenty of time to get through security and also settle before the tour. The check in process was really easy and all the staff are really helpful! Just pay attention to your timings being called as the tours run every 15mins and there are multiple tours happening at the same time but this is highly recommended and worth the money.

A Wonderful Experience - My husband has now seen a hockey game in all the cities where the Original 6 hockey teams played. Enjoyed sharing the experience with our son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. Our view was terrific, the seats were very comfortable and the entertainment between periods and on the Jumbotron was perfect. All areas appeared to be very clean and the staff we interacted with were helpful.

Not what I was expecting - The tour wasn't what I was expecting. It was ok, and the tour guide was cool but we were taken around public places. I actually went back to MSG the night my tour was for an event and was able to see the same things my tour covered. I was expecting to go back stage and into changing rooms. We were taken into one of the suites but that was about it. Everything else, you could have literally have done with any event admission. I would not recommend this unless we were just on a bad tour.
