  1. Wonderful art, wonderful information! We’ve walked by so many beautiful things without noticing. Thanks so much!


    • All of our Subway Art Tours are designed to help tour guests discover the art museum at the core of the Big Apple. Our aim is to open the eyes of people to the world of beauty around them. Pleased to hear that we have made progress. Cheers!


  2. I was born in NYC, but moved away when I was young and haven’t visiting much since then. Now I am planning my first trip back as an adult and it would be nice to be re-introduced to my ‘home town’ by someone who is so passionate about the city! Looking forward to it!!


  3. I’ve been to NY hundreds of times, but I learned so much from Philip’s practical, architectural, historical, art and gossipy knowledge of everything NY. Highly recommend these tours.


  4. Hank and I want to thank you for a wonderful afternoon below ground on your MAS sponsored subway tour of art. We thoroughly enjoyed your knowledge about the art and the artists, and we look forward to walking with you again. Please put us on your email list so that we can keep up with you. Thanks again.
