Madison Square Garden a must
Great way to see all of Madison Square Garden including the freshly laid ice rink. And seeing the change rooms of the Knicks and Rangers teams.

Worth every penney!
We went on the 12.45 tour and it was so great! Interesting to learn about the history and see all areas of the garden you wouldn't normally get to. The tour guide was brilliant he was so knowledgeable, friendly and energetic.
