I. Loved this tour. I had family from out of town from LA. They loved it also. I had done this 30 years before. It was great to see it again. Our guide was terrific and couldn’t have been better. He always took time to answer everyone’s questions and explained in detail. The microphone gadget and a little interference several times but was a great assist in a terminal with lots of outside noise. I also reminded my friends and posted it on Facebook photos.

I wasn't expecting the building to have so many intricate design elements, but through rebuilds and restoration pretty much every corner has something unique, symbolic, or historically compelling to share. This was an informative and entertaining tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny, and he was able to answer a wide range of questions from the group.

L'animatrice est très dynamique, les explications intéressantes et ça permet de passer du temps à découvrir la gare. A faire si on reste plusieurs jours a NYC et qu'on a le temps de voir les spots principaux par ailleurs.
