Thousands ride the New York City subway every day, but not many know the secrets and stories hidden behind the transit system. This underground tour of the NYC subway showcases the history of the subway with a native New Yorker as your guide. Ride through gilded ghost stations—complete with Jazz Age chandeliers—to one of the most modern stations: the Oculus at the World Trade Center station.
  • Ride through a piece of New York’s living history during this subway tour
  • Stops are open to the public, but only tour riders “see” the ghost stations
  • Small-group tour limited to a maximum of 10 participants for an intimate experience
  • An easy-to-find meeting point makes for a stress-free start

Lots of interesting factoids. Our docent was incredibly well versed and interested in the history of the subways. I found lots of things to add to our personal tours of NYC for our visiting friends and family
City hall station is so interesting

Informative interesting tour of the NYC subway system as described. Helpful sound buds provided which worked well in the loud environment. Excellent experience.
Underground ride into the past
, Nov 2019
Heather our guide was great. Her knowledge of the underground in NYC including other states/countries and surrounding area was really good and she made the tour fun and interesting. Heather was prepared with a flashlight but I'd recommend taking one with you, so you can really see the hidden stations. I'd recommend this tour as it was a fun way to spend a couple of hours and drinks afterwards at the Beekman Hotel are a must!
Somewhat disappointing
, Oct 2019
Large part of the tour was in the subway stations and therefor next to impossible to follow because of the noise. The main attraction: the old City Hall station was a few seconds from the train: we had expected to really see it. All in all a disappointing experience although the guide was excellent.
Very informative
