Make your way to Pershing Square, a landmark café that’s just across from Grand Central Station. This tour begins with a bit of history, as you explore the elegant exterior of the station building, and hear the story of Grand Central Station’s construction and refurbishment.

Inside the building, visit a series of gourmet stops, where you taste local foods that are hand-picked for you. This is a lunchtime tour, so bring an appetite along: you’re able to make a meal of all the snacks along the way. Trace a route to the ‘must-see’ spots inside Grand Central, like the Kissing Room, the Whispering Gallery, and the Station Master’s Office. Learn some of the station’s many secrets, including one that’s hidden in the Zodiac ceiling that arcs over the Main Concourse.

This tour concludes at Grand Central Station, and take home a parting gift of a coupon book that’s good for post-tour shopping at one of the station’s 68 vendors.

Fantastic food - and fascinating historical - tour of Grand Central Terminal!
, Feb 2020
We (13yo daughter and I) had a wonderful tour with Annabel this weekend! We were her only two guests. We began outside Grand Central and learned its history (the history and contextual lessons continued throughout our tour). The tour was more background (and fascinating facts) than we expected but we left with a greater appreciation of Grand Central Terminal! We lingered over the last sit-down course at GC Oyster Bar a little longer than planned, so the last two food "bites" were given to us to go - our tour ran 2.5 hours. I highly recommend Annabel and the stops she showed us - and the inside tips about the building! She even texted us afterwards to offer any tips about present/future trips to NYC (things to do on a 2, 3, 4 day trip, etc) as she runs many tours around the city. Wonderful experience!
