Fun and Interesting!

Interesting in many ways - learned about Grand Central's history, it's quirks, the building itself and of course, its secrets. Richard, our guide, knew his facts and shared them with passion and humor. We were a group ranging in age from 22 to 63, and we all thought it was super. Some of us loved the history, others how it was saved from demolition in the 60's, others the architectural features. Highly recommend.

Fun & Surprising Tour of GCT

The guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the subject. Good pacing, fun, suprising, educational - well worth doing. That being said, I personally feel that the $39 price point per person for a very large group 90-minute tour is very high - seems to me a $20 or $25 price point is much more appropriate for such a large group and it would encourage more participation (then again, maybe limiting the numbers is part of the thinking - so maybe a "2 Tours for $50" deal would serve both sides well). In any case, a very good tour that I recommend.
Highly recommend!

This was an incredible tour!! Ginny Poleman was a FANTASTIC guide! She was extremely knowledgeable as well as funny and made the tour really entertaining. I had no idea there were so many nooks and crannies to explore as well as all the history. Definitely recommend!
