  • 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 ratingFascinating tour The tour is lengthy and comprehensive. The building is gorgeous with architectural details that are not used any more, especially not for a public building. Make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes.

    5 star ratingLoved the tour, but what an amazing tour guide! I was on my own, but part of a group of seventeen people on the tour and Jonathan, our guide, made everyone feel very welcome. He was amazing at remembering everyone’s names (and where we were from) and frequently referred to us by name throughout the tour. He had so much knowledge and enthusiasm, which made the tour very interesting. Learnt so much about Grand Central Terminal, and can definitely recommend the tour, and Jonathan, as a fantastic guide.
