    Tour was just fabulous!!! Justin knew everything about the art, the history, the people who created the art, and the people the art portrayed. It was of the best tours ever, and we take lots of tours. For New Yorkers, it's particularly rewarding to find

    We enjoyed the tour and lecture about the NY subway. Our guide was keen to share his knowledge and anecdotes about the subway. Not sure if this is worth the price, though...

    Amazing Tour, five stars!!! Had such a great time, I am a New Yorker and spend lots of time in the subway but Justin was able to even make a cynical New Yorker enjoy learning more about my city.

    I guess there was a mismatch per our expectations vs what we got through the tour. The tour guide was very good and knowledgeable but the tour per se was more informative rather than visual and we are Manhattan locals ...for us riding the NYC subway and going to places we see

    I thank you for your honesty and I deeply apologize that your expectations were not met with this tour. We are under no circumstances allowed to bring our tours inside abandoned stations due to MTA security and city law. We try to make that as clear as possible in our tour description and in our follow-up communications with our guests to manage expectations for all who choose to explore the subway with us. Our goal with this tour is to show both visitors and locals alike some of the hidden spaces that very few people know about in original 1904 subway system. Again my apologies this was not the case for you. Please be well and my thanks again for taking the time to leave the review.

    We had a terrific guide, so knowledgeable and kept our attention the whole time. Some guides make the tour all about themselves, they put on a show and dance which detracts from the subject of the Tour - Not this tour! Jeremy was personable and informative but never ever

    Benn, I thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough review! We are very honored to work with Jeremy and are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience with him on the Underground Subway tour. And thank you for letting us know what you'd like to see more of. We try to make this tour a balance of hidden-in-plain-sight, with a mix of the completely hidden within the allowances of the MTA. Please be well and hope you'll join us again!
