    5 star ratingVery enjoyable Great tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable, a lot of interesting facts about Grand Central itself. I definitely recommend going on a weekday so that you can go to the oyster bar as well. Costs a bit more, but worth it.

  • 4 star ratingGood tour, but could’ve been nerdier as far as I’m concerned I thought it was a good tour overall, but thinking back, I think it was a little light on actual factual content. For one thing, the guide never said anything about the actual architecture or the architect of Grand Central Station.

    5 star ratingJonathan knocked it out of the park! Tour was very, very interesting, 👍Jonathan is a wealth of knowledge and interesting tidbits about GCT! He was very energetic, engaged, and super passionate about his job! He remembered everyone's name and where everyone was from. Tour went about 20 minutes longer than expected, but no complaints. Definitely recommend!Kathy, Connie, & Bruce

  • 5 star ratingFantastic Behind the Scenes Tour of Grand Central.... History and Fun Absolutely amazing walking tour of Grand Central. Our guide, Richard, was fantastic. He knowledge of the history of both Grand Central and the Vanderbilt family was tremendous. He made it fun and interesting, plus was willing to stop to answer questions. The Tour did a great job of taking us different areas of the station, even the tennis courts - who knew!!! Highly recommend Untapped New York, if possible ask for Richard as your guide. And I understand he also does a fabulous tour of NYC Gilded Age.

  • 5 star ratingCatch this train! This was a great look at easily-missed details of Grand Central station. Louis (Lewis?) had really done his homework and brought along photos of the station and surround from years gone by. Without giving away any secrets I can say you will learn a great deal.
