Awesome experience. Loved how different it was from the typical tours offered. We had almost no wait to get in, while others waited in a huge line up. Interesting tour guide, lots of 'insider' info. Great tour!

The line was around the bloc, and was told that he wait was about 3 hours, but we entered the minute we met our guide Lucy. That by itself was worth every penny.
Very interesting tour. Our guide Lucy was very knowledgeable, and passionate about her job.

Excellent Tour!! Our tour guide was fantastic, fun, knowledgeable. We are so glad we chose the tour to get all the information we did on this amazing location. Highly recommend it!
Make sure you choose the skip the line tour, as the regular line to get in was around the entire city block, and we were told could take up to 3 hours to get in.

Very good guided tour. Ideal if you have teenagers or children who do not like to read about things on the way round. There was a long line up july so skipping the line was ideal. Highly recommend.
