Really interesting tour around the centre and its artworks. The guide gave a good background to the Rockefeller dynasty and the buildings, together with the symbolism of some of the artworks which was not immediately apparent! We got a combined ticket for the tour and...More

Want an art and architecture tour with some fire in the belly? You want Aaron. He's got spunk and sass. Little old ladies think he's adorable, teenagers think it's cute that he knows about One Direction. Thoroughly enjoyed his tour!
