I had received an email advising that the original guide for this tour had fallen ill and we had to change the time and day. Being Aussies we were pretty laid back no point getting upset about it. We did a very full on itinerary in New York but we managed to fit it in and so glad we did. We all did not want to miss this tour. I think there was only a max of 8 on this tour and there was 7 of us so we had the guide to ourselves. It was a rainy cold day so perfect for an indoor tour. Annabel was outstanding. He knowledge and welcoming personality made for a very memorable day. Annabel took the time to remember all our names and listen to us all and my 2 children about our travel plans and even actives my boys did back home. The building is amazing and I missed it my first time in New York but so glad we got to see this time. Plenty to eat on this tour. You will make 5 stops I think it was to nibble along the way. It really is worth the money and if you choose this tour you won't be disappointed. I hope to make it back to New York one day. If I do I would absolutely we booking some more tours with this company. I do hope Annabel would be there to guide me again. :-)

The Grand Central Food Tour was a blast. We learned about the history of the station with lots of fun facts thrown in! The food sampling was terrific. Definitely go hungry because you will leave stuffed! Nancy was an exception guide! Highly recommend for anyone even if you have been to NYC many times like we have!

This is the second time I've taken this tour and was not disappointed. Nancy, our tour guide, is fabulous and has a lot of history to share and very knowledgeable when taking our questions. This is the 3rd tour I've have that Nancy has been the guide and always great. Try the Hell's Kitchen food tour. Great fun and History. Thanks again, we all enjoyed.

Emily was our amazing and knowledgable tour guide. Not our first visit to NYC, or to Grand Central, but it was our first time to take a tour there. We learned so much more about Grand Central and some places we would have never thought to explore. And the food tastings were amazing. Even if you think you know about Grand Central, worth checking this tour out!

That's what we love to hear! Providing little known history to those who already have a good knowledge base is one of our objectives; and of course great food along the way!

My wife and I had a great afternoon touring and eating our way through Grand Central Terminal. Jillian is a knowledgeable tour guide with a lot of information to share. She made everything interesting. Who knew we would see so many places in Grand Central. Soup, sandwiches, cakes, cheese, fantastic coffee, and other goodies. We have taken other tours and had other guides, but Jillian 's tour is one we won't forget.

So, I must begin by saying we did not take this tour. Unfortunately, even though we had it booked for Saturday the October 12th, my husband and I weren't able to go. He was so ill when we woke up that day after a late return from Niagara Falls, we decided to write it off and get him feeling better. While I forgot to text our tour guide Nancy, she texted me with a sweet message to let me know where she was. I apologized and explained there was no way we would make the tour. She said she would let her company know and hoped my husband started feeling better. Ten minutes later, a gentleman from the tour called, asking if there was any other time we would want to reschedule. He said if, at ANY TIME while we were there, we wanted to take the tour or substitute another, he would set it up because he really hated for us to lose our money. I thanked him but explained that we were fully booked. He reiterated that if our plans changed to give him a call.

How amazing was this? Never have I experienced a tour company (and we've taken a lot of tours!) that concerned themselves so much with their customers' experience. This, to me , goes above and beyond in customer service. Yes, I know we lost the money we paid, but some things just happen---my husband starting feeling better after the extra rest and their concern took away some of the sting!

If this aspect of the company is so amazing, I can only imagine how wonderful the tour itself would have been. You guys are awesome!

Grand Central Terminal is a fascinating place. Jenn was a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. The food was tasty however was not the focus of the tour. We would have liked a more in depth explanation and discussion of the food history and development within the site of Grand Central. As this was a tour aimed at foodies we would have appreciated learning more about the food and especially the NY influence.

I cannot recommend this tour enough. Our guide (Annabel) was absolutely amazing. We were a group of 6 so we ended up with our own little private tour. This was definitely a highlight of our trip. We learnt a lot of interesting facts and we were so full from all the delicious food. This is a lovely way to spend part of your afternoon. I highly recommend!!
