    This tour was great! If you are interested in the history of the Woolworth legacy, it is amazing. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous--I can see why they call it the cathedral of commerce. A great thing to do on a cold day in New York City.

    The Woolworth Building Lobby Tour was well done and our host very knowledgeable and was able to give context to the story. The building access is limited hence the Lobby tour, but was definitely worthwhile. Would recommend this tour for those looking for something beyond the major New York sites.

    It was great to have a tour of this magnificent building ans get to see the amazing workmanship both outside and inside the building. The guide knew a lot of its history and was very helpful. The only thing though is that it would be a good thing to have had access to the observatory level if only for a short time.
