DETAILED TOUR ITINERARY

Our Grand Central Terminal Tour starts in front of our central headquarters on 46th Street. From there, our tour guide will walk you to Grand Central Station, which is a short walk of only eight minutes.

While discovering the terminal, we first come across the Main Concourse: Find out more about the background and history of the old fashioned ticket windows, the famous brass clock in the center on top of the information booth, and discover the purpose of the green celestial ceiling, which was painted in 1912.

Did you know that there is also a Shopping Gallery and Dining Concourse inside the terminal? Well, now you know - and during our tour, we’ll show you all the little surprises you can find there! Before leaving the building, your tour guide will also take a stroll with you through Grand Central Market: A massive food market offering the finest specialties from all over the world. Those and many more highlights are waiting for you inside of Grand Central Terminal.

As soon as we are leaving the building, you can take more pictures from outside of the sculptural group towering upon the entrance before we are heading towards the East River on 42nd Street. During this short walk, we will come across some famous Art Deco skyscrapers, such as the Chrysler Building and the massive Daily News Building. Make sure you take some photos of these stunning landmarks! Upon arrival at the East River, you will have the chance to take a closer look at the United Nations Headquarters complex. Our tour finishes back in Midtown, in front of the New York Public Library.
