Three of us met Lina at 9.00 and had a day filled with great cheer, not even the rain could dampen the mood. Lina was terrific from start to finish, beginning with our initial emails to the last minutes together. We all left saying repeatedly, "that was fantastic". Why? We got a bit of history, a nice walk, met lovely... More

Our tour with Lina was extremely interesting. I expected to hear about the clubs and talent associated with this area, but I was very suprised to learn so much about the evolution of the architecture, interesting bits of information about historical individuals, as well as some about the celebrities who reside there today. I was fascinated with the details and... More

My family and I (including three kids aged 17, 15 ad 10) booked a walking tour with Lina this past January in an effort to get a real feel for the areas of Greenwich Village, Soho and the Lower East Side. Lina customised a wonderful walking tour for us covering these areas, where we learnt so much and grazed all... More

My husband found Gotham Walking Tours on trip advisor when we were planning a family trip for our youngest's 21st birthday. He then contacted Lina for more information and told her we were interested in a tour of Central Park which would include the upper east side as our daughter was a huge fan of Gossip Girl. She told us... More

Lina is a one-gal show: she is flexible, easy to find, and fun to be around. Our tour (and snacking adventure) was a birthday present to my wife who loves history, walking, and eating! Our 13 and 18 year old daughters are museum-phobic, but this activity was different and quite acceptable to them. In Lina's New York, each block has... More

My family took a tour this Christmas on a blistery and cold day. We had a large group of 11 which included children ages 15, 13, 12, 10, 7 and 3. Our children loved it. The information was great and Lina has a very special touch with kids - she made them feel important be talking to their interests as... More

We took the Central Park tour on a freezing day in January. Even though we were uncomfortable, we enjoyed the tour and were sad to see it end. It was very informative, and interesting. Next trip, we will take another walking tour of something else. This is very worthwhile.

Lina of Gotham Walking tours is the best of the best when it comes to knowing NYC. I took her holiday tour which was historical, entertaining, and fun - as all of her tours are. This one covered not only the attractions that make up midtown during the holiday season, but also history, landmarks, and interesting tid bits of the... More
