Fascinating history of Grand Central Station ably recounted by tour leader Sara. She's dynamic and bouncy. A real pleasure.

Very informative, historical tour with interesting 'secret' stories. A must for anyone visiting NYC. Our guide, Rhiannon, was very knowledgeable and invited questions. She had no problem extending the tour due to the level of interest in the group.

Sara was really passionate and witty. We laughed and were awed at every turn. Learnt lots about the history behind the monument and how it relates to today’s reality.

Grand Central Terminal is such an iconic structure in NYC, but most do not know about its history. On this tour, you get the facts, as well as the interesting stories. Our guide made the tour interesting and fun, and with her theatrical training, her explanations came alive.
