Gary is the MTA's greatest ambassador, he loves the subject and it really comes through in his presentation. He brings you through the history of the formation of the subway and how it all came together to create what we have today. We really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it!!

We expected to be doing a lot of walking in the old subways only to find out that it is illegal. There was a lot of time sitting on a bench while the guide very knowledgable went over pictures on his computer. Would have been better walking and looking, that's why we booked the trip.

Still had a relatively good time despite not being what we signed up for.

Great tour! Gary took time to answer our questions and provide history and background. I would highly recommend this tour for rail fans, history buffs, and those interested in getting some background about the system that moves the city.

Gary met with us for this tour and it was probably our favorite one of the week. It was just the two of us with him and we really got an appreciation for the subway system. He was so knowledgeable about the history and also the meaning behind the mosiacs that line the subway walls. I would highly recommend taking this tour while in New York!
