My husband and I went on the tour this past weekend and let me tell you it was fabulous! The building is spectacular and the tour guide is a wealth of knowledge. We really never expected to be so pleased. If you are considering this tour please dont pass it up you definitely will not regret it!

Though it was a thrill to see the lobby of the Woolworth Building and get an hour talk of its history, the tour was still a disappointment as we were not able to get in the elevator or see some of the floors of the building. I know the building his being retrofitted to be sold as residential condos but... More

There is nothing to see on this tour, except the lobby, which you can see without paying. It is simply unbelievable that they charge $32 per person to walk around the small lobby. The "guide" was a nice lady, had a few old photographs with her, but was not allowed to show us the building. Don't waste you time and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the guided visit of the Woolworth building. A lot of information allowed us to better appreciate its scope and history. It is very well worth it to take the longest tour.

We took the I hour tour which was a great insight into a building and man that was well ahead of his time. Our guide, Bob Gelber was great and extremely informative and knowledgeable about the building and surrounding area. Highly recommend the tour.

When we had our tour, New York was snowy. To top that, me and my friend took the R train that was having a delay due to MTA construction and to top that, we toon the R train that ran the opposite direction. So instead of headin south to Woolworth, we headed further north. As a result, we arrived when... More

Building is beautiful of course but the tour doesn't actually let you see anything in it other than the lobby area. You are not taken to the top or even a higher floor. Expensive tour ($47) for just a 1.5 hour tour of the lobby.

Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide had a command of the history of the building, its development and the Rolex of all the important stakeholders. Visually breathtaking mosaics and tile work.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
