A note from Guided Private Underground New York Subway Tour
The Subway system for the first time in its history is NOT 24 hours due to a system wide shut down for cleaning every night. Even with this, it is still a public space. For now, the tour is a small group tour, it can only be done during the off peak times.

Gary is a great storyteller and his knowledge of NYC and the subway system is impeccable. Re-kindled my love for the subways even after having lived here for more than two decades. The tour is long, so be prepared to exercise your standing muscles. But totally worth it if you

I travel a lot and have taken many tours. I think this was the best I've ever taken. Gary was an amazing storyteller. He brought his ipad and used visuals to enhance his stories even more. He knows so many facts about NY history, people, and places. He is passionate about

I'm not sure what the rave reviews are about. We have the same tour guide. True Gary is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subway history in NY and shared very interesting facts. The tour starts at the Brooklyn Bridge. He shows the 115 year old subway tile and a

I am sorry that you did not appreciate the tour. But when did you take this tour? Was it a large group tour? If so then this review is not about the private tours offered here. The large group tour is sold else where and has nothing to do with the tours offered on Trip Advisor or Viator. Like I always say at the start of the group tour, "if you can't hear me - say something". I also say "if you don't understand me say something". Most people want the history, that is why I do it. Most people live here for years without ever knowing why the numbered lines have only 3 doors on each side. Hopefully you do now. Of course not everyone will be interested in how this all came together but I did have an 8 year old on the tour this past Sunday who was able to follow it. In the summer, the 100 plus years of history is done in an area upstairs where it is rather breezy. So the brutal aspects are avoided. The 3 murals, by the way, are not original to the system, no one has ever asked about them probably because they are not that interesting but they were done by local NYC school children.
