I've done the tour twice now. After the first time, I wanted to share it because it's such a fun and different and relatively inexpensive way to see NYC. Darryl had added new stations/art, but honestly it was great to hear again about the stuff from the previous tour (you forget details because it can move fast) and watch my friends' faces as they listened. Darryl is amazing; he really has an encyclopedic knowledge of the subway system and the art installations. It's not just art on the walls; Darryl points out you've missed a ton of stuff right there in the 42nd Street Station. I visit NYC regularly and have passed this art hundreds of times without realizing the history or story. It's a good amount of walking, but that's what I expect (and appreciate) when in NYC. This is something you will do that will stay with you and is really off the beaten path of things to do in NYC. My friends loved it.

Daryl was extremely informative and knowledgeable as he navigated us through subways and tunnels and trains. We were shown things we had never noticed before and lived all the quirky info he shared with us. There is a fair bit of walking and many steps.... but worth every minute. Thanks Daryl.

We decided on a last minute tour and we were not disappointed. Darryl was knowledgeable, fast paced and answered questions readily. It was amazing to see the locals stop and listen to what he was saying about the art work the rush past everyday. I highly recommend!

Fantastic tour, provides the opportunity to see an aspect of NYC that could easily be missed, learn about the background of each piece of art and the history of subway art. The guide is very knowledgable and presents the art in an interesting way.
