Love the behind the scenes - Loved hearing the background of the arena and how it was built. Very interesting how they switch from basketball/hockey/concerts and seeing some behind the scenes. 100% recommend!

The quiet before the party - The most memorable parts for me for the experience seeing them in the playoffs. It's me being a long time Knicks fan, Born and raised new yorker and being my second time visiting the garden I had tickets to game same night this has been definitely the best time I will always remember the pictures the artwork, and the history of this historic building. Walking through areas that you may never get to go. I really enjoyed it would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants to know about the history. I love being at an event before it begins to enjoy everything.

Interesting insight to MSG - The tour itself was great and the tour guide Lawrence was very knowledgeable. The tour provided interesting information and great insight to the Garden. The wait for the tour was a little unorganized, offered no where to sit while waiting and had no restroom facilities

A must do - Unmissable visit. This mythical place is full of history, legends and is impressive. A venue for shows and sports (basketball, hockey), its transformation depending on the configuration is striking. The tour is guided (in English) and lasts one hour.

Iconic venue but expected more from the tour - We visited MSG during our recent trip to New York. The venue and its history is incredible… the tour however…. Not so much. Everything felt a little rushed and there was too many people in our group which meant the tour guide was more concerned about people not getting lost than actually giving us an insight into MSG. A lot of the tour was seeing things the average Joe Public could see when visiting MSG other than seeing the Knicks changing rooms which was pretty cool.

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.
