The art and architecture tour given by Lindsey was excellent - very informative and interesting. Covered relevant history without a lot of extraneous information. It was raining lightly off and on but the guide still took us outside as was necessary to see a lot of important building details and sculpture. The group size was manageable (about 8) and we...

Absolutely wonderful tour, even for us people that aren't generally into art. Beautiful paintings, sculptures, and architecture highlight a tremendous tour that also gives some background the city's history while visiting some of the most famous landmarks. Lindsay was a fantastic guide who never made the experience feel boring in any way (which could be a worry for those not... More

Rodney was our guide and provided an excellent experience. We didn't realize that there was so much art symbolism there. We would HIGHLY recommend this tour to everyone. You are provided a headset so you don't miss anything when you're outside or in noisy places. We've been to Rockefeller Center many times over the years but did not realize how... More

We were led around the Rockefeller centre through the streets and buildings whilst listening (through a head set) to a very knowledgeable guide. It was fascinating to see the art in and around the buildings. Really pleased we did this prior to going Top of the Rock.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
