  • 5 star ratingAmazing Taste of NY tour guided by Richard We went on the taste of NY tour with Richard yesterday. I'm a lifelong new yorker and thought I knew a lot about the LES but Richard blew our minds. He was incredibly knowledgable and thoughtful as we walked around the LES.

    I can not recommend the tour enough. Thank you again for such a fabulous experience, Richard!

    We will be sure to tell all of our friends/family and take another Untapped New York tour again soon!
    5 star ratingGreat trip Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the subway, great to see things that you wouldn’t notice normally when passing through the stations

    Well worth the money

    5 star ratingGet Some Insider Knowledge We have been travelling on the NYC subway system for nearly 40 years. However with this tour we learned a few things that we were not familiar with. Our tour guide was personable, knowledgeable & had a good insight into the politics of the city. We had a very pleasant two hours with her.

    5 star ratingSunday Morning in GCT Great walking tour of Grand Central. I loved all the historical information about the terminal and preservation and restoration efforts. Our guide, Richard, was prompt, knowledgeable, and engaging. He even took us outside a couple of times to see features of the exterior. I’ve always wanted to know more about GCT when passing through, and this tour was informative and worthwhile. I booked through Viator, and the tour provider was Untapped New York. We went on Sunday morning because we thought the terminal would be less busy. I think it was, although be aware that some of the retail and restaurants (including the Oyster Bar) are closed on Sunday.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent tour, fantastic tour guide. What a fantastic tour. Our tour guide, Jonathan, was knowledgeable and passionate about the fascinating history of Grand Central Terminal. I lived in NYC for a brief period in the 90's, and was thrilled to learn about the significant work that has been done to rehabilitate and preserve this NYC treasure since the 90's.

    5 star ratingAn immigrant's story with snacks Nyc food tour was great. As a life long NYer I saw new places with a wonderful guide. Richard was knowledgeable and fun.
  • 5 star ratingInformative and fun My wife and I did this tour Oct. 28 while in town for her grandfathers birthday. Luis, our tour guide, was very enthusiastic and really brought the tour and history alive. Great information about the architecture, the people involved, and some great stories from its glory days. I’ve never been to Grand Central Station before and this was a great way to experience it for the first time. I would highly recommend this tour.

    5 star ratingAwesome, informative and enjoyable tour! Richard is an amazing guide! He gave a very clear and concise run down of the history behind the Grand Central Station and always made sure to check if we had more questions for him when we had none because he provided us with so much interesting background. Looking forward to another tour!

  • 5 star ratingWonderful tour! This tour is amazing!!!! I have been to Grand Central Station many times and had no idea the history and facts behind it all. We saw areas I did not know existed and learned so much. We took several tours while in NYC for a girls trip and this was a favorite! Highly recommend!

    5 star ratingMidnight Tennis, anyone? Laura gave an informative, entertaining tour of Grand Central Terminal (it's not Station, and she explained why). We went through different levels and corners of the terminal, revealing all of the impressive features. Laura also gave tips for if you find yourself staying at GCT awhile. Need somewhere to sit? There's an upper floor with chairs. Want to play tennis at the Vanderbilt Tennis Club inside GCT? It's half-price at midnight.
