Excellent trip. You get a discount for radio city tour with your lanyard. The tour was excellent and our tour guide really loved his job and MSG. We couldn’t go into the changing rooms as boxing was on that night and the boxers were already in but they said if you went first thing the next day you could get in and have a look. Excellent. I would definitely recommend and do it again.

Jeff was fantastic. Informed, animated, easy to hear. May I say again . . . . "easy to hear!" I am older, hearing aids. . . and I could hear all that he said. And the tour was wonderful, enjoyable. Would pass the word to others. And we'll be coming to a concert in the future. Thanks.
