    Benn, I thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough review! We are very honored to work with Jeremy and are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience with him on the Underground Subway tour. And thank you for letting us know what you'd like to see more of. We try to make this tour a balance of hidden-in-plain-sight, with a mix of the completely hidden within the allowances of the MTA. Please be well and hope you'll join us again!

    Had a fascinating afternoon riding the subway with Jeremy. Enthusiastic and full of interesting stories and facts about the history, architecture and artwork of the subway. We will never look at it in the same way again. Highly recommend!

    Awesome- rich history told by engaging guide easy walking through city hall area and then stations and short subway ride. We had a peek of an abandoned station through subway window. Good for kids and history lovers and duration is just right.
