I really enjoyed the tour, our guide was excellent and he I learned a lot I never would have noticed by just walking around and exploring grand central on my own. I feel like the price was a bit high but I was not at all disappointed by the tour.

Great tour! Grand Central Station is beautiful & the history is fascinating. Tour guide was friendly & engaging! Had a little bit of trouble with online booking but not a bid deal. The employee at the ticket counter was very helpful & friendly!

Great tour. Small group with an excellent guide. He was informative and funny. Headsets were used so it was easy to hear the guide even in a noisy area. I highly recommend the Grand Central Terminal tour and will look for other Walks tours in the future.

Joe, our guide was excellent. He told interesting stories, answered our questions, had a good sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable about Grand Central Terminal. The 1 1/2 hour tour was well worth the time and money.
