    Lots of walking and best to take it during cool (not cold or hot) days. But the information was an eye opener of the subway. So much history and landmarks. As a native New Yorker this was a great tour!

    The tour was full of fascinating urban history and hidden secrets. Our guide, Justin, was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject and this made the tour extra good. It would be good for people new to New York (like my brother in law who did the tour with us)

    Hi Svitlana, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! It is important for us to hear what you think we can improve. Our tour is 2 hours long and we only spend the first 20 minutes outside, although I understand it might seem longer when it is cold outside... We do specify in our event description that guests will need to swipe once to enter the subway system, although our guides always have extra subway cards in case someone forgets it. We hear your point about the noise in the subway which is why we reduced the size of our groups to 10 guests, and moving forward we are going to use a state of the art PA system with individual receivers for each guests in order to ensure everyone will hear the guide correctly. Thank you again for sharing your feedback and helping us improve the quality of our experience.
