Guide was very knowledgeable and added a great deal to the entire tour. Only disappointment was the lack of lighting at the Worth St. & City Hall stations.

The tour was great!! Our guide was great! She new soooo much history of the stations, architects, dates everything took place! I wish we could have chatted more with her! We are not from New York and the directions to the actual starting place was a little confusing as City Hall Park has a lot of areas to meet in and we came from a place where the fountain wasn't visible, she answered our texts and got us to the right place. Love her! thanks so much! Virginia Towne
