Hi! I'm a tour guide and Chief Experience Officer at Untapped New York! Together with my awesome partners Jeff, Mandy, Gabby, Heather, Jeremy and Ashley we will host your experience! I grew up in New York and always had a passion for NYC's diverse history which I have been excited to share with locals and visitors alike for the last few years. After writing several plays about New York, I decided to take the plays out of the theaters and directly into the streets... where the stories actually happened! I can't wait to share the city's secrets with you and show you its hidden gems!

Grand Central is an iconic structure with rich history. Our guide did a great job navigating our group through the building - inside and out (even on a very cold day) - in a way that was warm, welcoming and informative. Thanks John. So fascinating!

Perfect tour for people who love to hear the little details, the secrets, the history, and the inner workings of Grand Central. We are a family of 4 with 1 teen and 1 pre teen and the tour kept their interest and they stayed engaged. John, our tour guide, had hearing pieces to aid in listening to him in the bustling terminal. Very nice touch!

Amazing tour. John was so passionate and knowledgeable about Grand Central. We could not have dreamed of a better person to visit the terminal

Wow! We had a great time on our tour! Interesting enough to keep our 10 & 13 year olds engaged and we moved all around learning historical stuff, secret facts and future plans for the station. Very fun and well worth it.. we won’t go near the bus tours.. these personalized “insider info” tours are the best!

We had a great tour of GCT and learned so much about the history. This was our first tour of GCT terminal and highly recommend it!

This experience was so much more than I imagined. They go through every detail of Grand Central Station that you can't unsee. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made us stay in suspense as we walked from terminal to terminal. A must-go-to experience to add to New York.
