Fantastic tour - our guide, Justin, knows all of the ins and outs of Grand Central. Especially enjoyable if you have read Fiona Davis’ “The Masterpiece.” Highly recommended!

It took 3 Yrs to finally book this tour as it’s only offered on Saturday’s only to find it disappointing. You needed to be near the tour guide to hear what was being said. There were to many people on the tour that does not allow everyone get close enough to the tour guide for that, so you miss on what’s is being said due to the terminal noise and announcements. This tour should not have more that eight people. So, I would not recommend this tour to anyone.

Beautiful day, disappointing guide

Grand Central Terminal is a wonderful place, a space full of energy and movement. The tour group was large, about 14-people, and the information and places we saw were great. Sadly the delivery of that information by our tour guide left more than something to be desired. But our group of five friends enjoyed our day in spite of the guide's shortcomings.
