Hard-Hat Tour of Ellis Island I took the hard-hat tour of the abandoned Ellis Island hospital. It was great. The tour guide was very well informed and the tour was fascinating.
Everything Untapped NY does is awesome! I love it! I became a paid member because I like them so much!Steven S5/03/2021
NYC Underground Subway I believe that this is a worthy activity. With 2 active teenagers, this excursion kept them attentive. The guide in my mind was pivotal in the historical explanation of events. I do need to note that it must be clearer on the exact meeting location as GPS along with the NYC blocked roads and construction does not help the visitor locate the tour. We got lost several times which is not fun. Some people may consider this an adventure, but I do not. I would certainly book this tour again if my out of state friends request it.
Wonderful, informative Mandy was so knowledgeable- you will learn so many cool things about the city ok this tour. Not just about the subway. Please not they do not go into the old city hall station. Only one outfit can and they aren’t open currently (as of April ‘21).Jalener374/17/2021

Going Dutch Around Lower Manhattan Good morning! A tip of the beaver pelt hat to Ms. Mandy Edgecombe and her extraordinary breadth and wealth of knowledge about historic Dutch New York and its progenitors. Her enthusiasm for her subject was, dare I say, contagious, with a healthy dose of good-natured humor. She was evidently and easily comfortable working with the vast age disparity in our assemblage, from the NYC 4th grader and his family viewing first-hand his current virtual social studies curriculum, to our own elder Dutch Masters-styled foursome. Although the edifices of that period no longer exist, and the only structural remnants of those days are the in-ground cisterns and the pieces of the wall from the old fortifications in the South Ferry subway station, she vividly resuscitated the muck & mercantile lifestyle that dominated that period of our city's history. Thank you for making her available to us, and we look forward to more of Ms. Mandy. Well worth the wampum.

Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and professional, not an amateur (homegrown/amateure tours and guides are not always a bad thing, it depends on what one wants out of a tour)!Gary2/28/2021
The tour was very interesting and our guide Mandy was very pleasant, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. The overall experience was very nice. We’ll definitely take other tours. Thanks a lot for unforgettable experience!!Nelly2/20/2021

I learned so much and really had such a good time. I cannot wait to go on another Untapped tour!! I will definitely be scheduling more tours for sure.dinat3182/15/2021
Fantastic NY Walking Tour I took the Penn Station tour. Tour guide Justin has deep knowledge of the history of the Station, back story, personalities, architecture. I've been in this station hundreds of times in the past 40 years and never "saw" the structures he showed us. He's personable and helpful and made this a "perfect 10" experienceKay C2/15/2021
Absolutely awesome! Took the Secrets of GCT tour with Justin this weekend and have done a private Subway tour with Justin in the past. Both were AMAZING. The tours are well planned out and chock full of interesting information. Justin is enthusiastic, very knowledgable and comes with visual aids/pictures including photos he has taken himself that really amplify the experience. You know you are learning from someone who has a passion for the secrets and history of NYC. Justin is approachable and makes sure everyone has a great experience. He texts prior to the tour to make sure you are appropriately prepared to get the most out of the tour and comes prepared with sanitized earpieces to ensure that everyone can hear him despite the loudest of subway trains or train announcements. Will definitely be taking more Untapped tours in the future and would not hesitate to recommend this group to anyone!!gkweston2/08/2021
One of the best NYC tours (especially for NYC natives) This was the best local NYC tour I'd been on in years (and I live in NYC). The tour should really be called "The History and Secrets of the NYC Subway." I thought Justin was great -- he knows so much, but he didn't overwhelm you -- he knew exactly how much information to give and truly the most interesting stuff. At two hours, it was just perfect. All I kept thinking was -- I can't wait to show off my new subway knowledge to my friends and kids. It was 100% cool.PlasticMoonRain2/08/2021
“This was a great way to spend a Saturday and get to know NYC better - highly recommend for locals and tourists alike. Also a great COVID activity since Grand Central is quiet, it really gives you the space and opportunity to get some great photos and soak it in without commotion around you. Justin is a great storyteller and has really done his research on the history - highly recommend!”Cassandra Stockall1/31/2021
