After a bit of confusion as to our meeting point due to Hard Rock hosting a private event this tour was all we expected and more. For true Yankee fans it is heaven!. We were sorry not to get onto the field or into the locker rooms due to a pending soccer game but the guide and former Yankee pitcher John Montefusco more than satisfied our thirst for Yankee lore. So MUCH HISTORY. A great tour!!!
Had a great time on the tour, the player took time to speak with everyone. Even telling us what it was like when he played in his very first major league game.
We took the tour with our boys (ages 14 and 13) and we all thoroughly enjoyed it! Having "the Count" (former yankee pitcher) along to guide us and share stories made this a truly special experience. We were escorted out to Memorial Park, visited the Press Box area, went through the Museum and ended our tour behind home plate on the field. Wow....very cool experience! After the tour we had lunch at the adjacent Hard Rock Cafe where "the Count" signed pictures and baseballs for all who attended the tour. He shared some of his favorite baseball stories and a great time was had by all. We highly recommend this tour!
Although not a massive baseball fan my brother is and he thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon as in fact did I. We were allowed into the dressing room and just about on to the famed pitch to visit the dugout which you cannot do on the normal tours. The legend that accompanied us was Roy White who could not have been nicer or more accommodating telling stories of his time with the Yankees, letting us in on little secrets, constantly having his photograph taken and signing anything you wished. This continued through lunch at the Hard Rockas well. The authentic personally signed photograph we received was and added bonus. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in baseball.
This tour was absolutely amazing! We were able to see so many neat things at Yankee Stadium, that you can't see on a normal tour. But, honestly, the neatest part was having the tour led by Jim Leyritz! You heard stories from a former Yankee that you can't hear everyday. He gave us neat insight. Then, having lunch with him and getting to ask any question you want, priceless!
The tour was very fun. Everyone from the Tour guides to the Former Yankee players to the other people on the tour were very friendly. Glad I was able to do this. And I hope to do it Again soon with Family Members.
Excellent tour. Highly recommend for any sports enthusiast. Highlight of my 4week USA holiday!
The tour was very professional and well organized. Roy White was a gracious and humble guest host and the Yankee staff knowledgable and helpful. Lunch was yummy! I'd do it again. In addition, Viator kept us well informed and offered some great suggestions of other places to see during our visit....if I didn't live so close, and this was our only trip to Bew York, we would've definitely used them.
The tour was a great experience and I highly recommend if you are a yankees fan. It was great to see the stadium and learn about it in a whole different light. And the food was delicious of course ... especially the chocolate chip cookies.
Highly recommend this tour for any sports fans. It was well organised and the lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe was excellent!!
This was wonderful! We had a previous Yankee who took photos with us and told stories from when he was in the ball game. Just being inside the stadium was amazing and being able to see the media area and get close to the field. The lunch afterwards just topped it off. Definitely worth it!!!
Unreal experience for this Aussie who has followed American baseball, and particularly the Yankees from afar. It was amazing to be taken through the stadium and into the dug out and onto the field and by one of the legends. Amazing experience that I would highly recommend to any baseball enthusiast....after all who can say they went behind the scenes at Yankee stadium?
Excellent day at Yankees stadium. All staff very helpful, friendly and noticeably love the Yankees. Very relaxed atmosphere and heart felt stories from the Staff and ex-Yankee. Recommend to any fan and even reluctant family members. Thank you Viator
The tour was wonderful and exciting. MintPros did a terrific job with the schedule and the events. The ballpark was awesome as well. Turns out my seats were so high it terrified me, but the park gave us other seats and we had a beautiful evening.
My fiance and I had a wonderful time! I got this as a birthday present for him. We got plenty of photo opportunities and the Yankee legend we met was very friendly and approachable. The tour was great as was the food at the Hard Rock. It makes the tour of the stadium just a little more special and fun. Our only suggestion/observsation is that you have to keep your eyes peeled for the man who organized the tour (he will give you the tickets to get into the stadium). We couldn't easily locate him so it was a little nerve-racking because we didn't want to miss it :)
great experience especially for avid Yankee fans. The best birthday gift I received this year! Very professionally done. The guide was very knowledgeable as was Roy White who accompanied us throughtout the tour. A memorable experience!
Best Experience I ever had. Took my son who is 9 and was the greatest experience he had so far in his 9 little years to date. Would recommend this tour to anyone who loves baseball History and of course the yankees!!
We loved this tour. We were treated right royally!We had a great time with the 2 legends of the game who accompanied us, Mickey Rivers and Fritz Peterson. They were such fun and answered questions and told stories of their highlight games back in the 70's. We visited the museum and sat in the reporters box but could not go onto the pitch as they were relaying it for the start of the football season. Lunch at the Hard Rock cafe was excellent - and we met some lovely people. A great tour thank you.
I was a bit skeptical at first after reading other reviews. I was afraid we weren't going to be able to find the tour guide who had our tickets. To my surprise, Joe Q. was already at the stadium upon our arrival and returned my phone call within minutes. Good guy! We met at the Hard Rock and picked up our tickets. The tour was great and it was cool to hang out with the Yankee Legend over lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. Lunch was delicious and we have an authographed baseball as a souvenir. If you're a baseball fan you will definitely like this tour...if you're a Yankees fan, you'll LOVE it. Definitely a great experience !!!
This tour was outstanding however, organisation needs to be sorted, as directions were confused and we were refused entry at first. We were told to go to gate 6, refused entry, then gate 4, told our voucher was not valid and then the ticket office told us to buy new tickets. After 30 minutes finally found the organiser who also had trouble with the ticket office.
