Drey was our guide and he was very informative. This is a walking tour and it was never boring, or tiring, each tunnel had its own history as well as the buildings. I’m new to the area so this tour helped me to get a...More
I used to work downtown and used the "tunnels" on a daily basis - it's an underground world full of restaurants, delis, card shops, bookstores, small clothing boutiques, even barbershops!
