I had a question about taking the tour at ballparks to throw out there. The only park that we have taken the tour of is Wrigley and it was great, mostly because of the history surrounding the ballpark. This year we are going to St. Louis and I was thinking of doing the tour of Busch Stadium. I was wondering if anyone else had any experiences doing tours of any stadiums they could share. Which ballpark tours were worth it? Which ones weren't? Thanks!

I've had the opportunity to tour a number of parks. I quite enjoyed the tour of PNC Park. The views of the city and bridges are spectacular from the private boxes and broadcast booths. Yankee Stadium tour was great as well. They take you into the players club house which was really interesting, along with the Yankee HOF and Museum. I toured Camben Yards when it first opened in 1992 and at the time was very impressed with the tour. It's always really interesting to see the Parks empty of fans and to go behind the scenes. Enjoy your future tours!

We took the tour of Fenway Park..it was great seeing inside the scoreboard etc. It started to rain about halfway along the warning track so we ended up having to wait it out under center field. Knowledgeable tour guides!!

The tours of Coors Field are better than the average ballpark tour. I take a tour every year or so and always learn something new about the stadium. If in the area, I'd definitely recommend it.

I was disappointed in the Turner Field tour. It was too rushed and the guide didn't really seem to be interested in visitors questions.

Safeco does a good tour and provides a lot of history information during the tour.

The Busch tour is fine and I'd recommend taking it with all the Cardinals baseball history.

I live in St. Louis and the tour of Busch Stadium is excellent. Definitely do it. Also, two miles down the street is Anheuser-Busch, who also has an excellent tour that I highly recommend if you are into that kind of thing. If you do go to Anheuser-Busch, make sure you stop at Gus' Pretzels. It is about 3/4 mile from Anheuser-Busch, and is one of those little holes in the wall that only the locals know.
I took a tour of Camden Yards last September and it was well worth the price of admission. Our guide gave a history of the area before the park was built and was a wealth of info on the Orioles. I'm also hoping to do a trip to St. Louis and do the tour.

Busch Stadium is a really great tour. So was Coors Field. I'd recommend them both. As someone else said, take the Budweiser tour too. Out of the big three (Miller, Coors, Bud), I would rank that one as my favorite.

In addition to the ballpark tour in St. Louis, the new Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum at Ballpark Village is worth doing.
