Underground ride into the past

Heather our guide was great. Her knowledge of the underground in NYC including other states/countries and surrounding area was really good and she made the tour fun and interesting. Heather was prepared with a flashlight but I'd recommend taking one with you, so you can really see the hidden stations. I'd recommend this tour as it was a fun way to spend a couple of hours and drinks afterwards at the Beekman Hotel are a must!

Somewhat disappointing

Large part of the tour was in the subway stations and therefor next to impossible to follow because of the noise. The main attraction: the old City Hall station was a few seconds from the train: we had expected to really see it. All in all a disappointing experience although the guide was excellent.
