A taste of the Gardem - We chose to complete a tour of MSG as there were no events occurring that we could make it to during our stay in NYC. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgable about the history of the Garden (which we had no idea about). We enjoyed being able to go into a VIP suit and then go down to the ground floor - which was set up for a hockey game that night. We watched the Vancouver Canucks warming up for their game which was a great experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone who isn't able to get to the garden for an event during their stay but may have an interest in significant events that have happened including sports and music.

Perfect rainy day activity in NYC! - Great to see behind the scenes of MSG. Our guide, Yogi, was excellent. Really knowledgeable and enthusiastic, friendly and inclusive with the whole group. There were around 30 people, didn’t feel rushed and was really good fun. Would highly recommend, perfect rainy day activity in NYC!

Fabulous Tour Guide - Our tour experience was truly one to remember. It lasted an hour long and we enjoyed every memorable moments from Muhammad Ali history to seeing suites!! What made our tour was our tour guide yogi (forgive me if I’ve spelt this wrong). From the minute we walked through the door the staff from security to the ticket office were kind, welcoming and friendly. Yogi was incredible, so funny and bubbly and knew all the ins and outs of everything. He was open to every question, searching for answers with his colleagues even if he didn’t know them himself. PLS GIVE THIS MAN HIS TRAVIS SCOTT TICKETS!! Thank you for making this experience memorable just from your personality in itself. 1000% would recommend to anyone visiting New York.

MSG Tour - My husband and I took the MSG behind the scenes tour. Our tour guide was well educated and made the tour interesting. For a 60-minute tour, we saw a lot and learned a lot about MSG.

Terrible - All tours were cancelled without any warning! I went all the way to the Garden just to learn that no tours would be taking place the rest of the day.
