The Grand Central Terminal walking tour was fabulous made that way by our guide Joe. Thank you Joe!! The history was something I had never heard about before. I didnt realise that Jackie Onassis had a hand in saving the Terminal from demolition. Not telling you any more. Just do it. Fabulous!!

Our tour guide, Joe, was extremely personable and knowledgable. We really enjoyed the tour and learning about the Grand Central Terminal. We had visited the Grand Central Terminal on our own before and now having taken the tour feel that we have seen more and learned a lot about it. So glad that it was restored and is there for everyone to enjoy its beauty!
