What people are saying about Grand Central Terminal

My teenage son & I discovered the Superheroes of New York tour while on our first trip to NYC & it was his favorite part of our trip. Luke was so knowledgeable about the history of DC, Marvel & the city & even sang for us as we walked around.

Great day out with Albert our guide, Value for money, was picked up at 8:30 and didn’t get back until around 16:45. Albert made the day very interesting and enjoyable and his knowledge of New York City is second to none.

Great tour… all boroughs except Staten Island. Manuel and Kevin were entertaining and knowledgeable. Price was reasonable but make sure you meet in front of the Amazon store beside the Hyatt.

Fantastic tour. Guide knows his stuff. Polite and friendly. Driver safe. Very good value for money.

Amazing guide. Even the members of the family who are not massive superhero fans loved it!
