Responses were immediate...and I was impressed with the reminder as well as the day of instruction even including the name of the guides. Our guide was articulate, humorous and extremely informative. I have already recommended your tours to two of our friends!!

The tour guide was very good. There was a lot of information shared about this historic place. The tour was ok, but not great. No-fault of the guide or even Untapped Cities for that matter. I live in NYC and have lived in NYC for 10 years. Because of that, I knew most of what was shared on the tour. I think the tour is great for visitors or new residents. However, it's billed as a "Secrets of Grand Central Terminal" tour. I don't feel like there were any real secrets shared, and there was no access to anything not easily viewed by the general public with the exception of the Tennis Club. You did make it pretty clear in the description that because of security reasons, there wasn't much if anything behind the scenes that would be shown. I just feel like for the price, after a tip, etc. it's just overpriced for what you get.
