The tour is very informing and a must if you are in NY. You end up knowing more about NY then you native NY friends. Worth the time.

Lina showed my wife and I both the West Village and LES for a walking tour and it was absolutely the highlight of our trip to NYC. Not only is Lina extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, she quickly catered the sights and commentary to our interests, introduced us to AMAZING food, and was fascinating and funny throughout....

Had an amazing, fun filled, informative tour with Lina Viviano and would highly recommend her to everyone. Started at St. Patricks and walked up to the park while Lina spoke of the history of the area, pointed out interesting buildings and took us into the park explaining its history and evolution in an relaxed and understandable way. Enjoyed the tour... More

This is truly an enjoyable tour to see the side of New York that in many instances does not exist except in memory and history. The walk seems like it is only a short distance because the turn of each corner brings another great story or view of wonderful period architecture. After you look back at a map do you... More

Being a former tour guide myself, I was blown away by the knowledge, professionalism, and hospitality that Lina, our tour guide, offered our group! I learned countless historical and fun facts about the wonderful neighborhood that is Gramercy Park! Highly recommend Gotham and can't wait to go on another tour!

I have been apart of Lina's walking tour in Gramercy and it was simply amazing. Lina shared many interesting facts about NYC's architecture throughout our walking tour that i would... More

I went on a walking tour through Gramercy with Lina last week and haven't stopped thinking about everything that I learned. We touched on a little bit of everything from architecture to art, urban planning, societal trends, important historical figures and even great places to eat. Lina has a way of tying all aspects together and making the information both... More

Engaging and collaborative in style, Lina never disappoints. Lina's my go-to person for all-things-New York that I need to know. I have taken several of her walking tours and feel I've gained so much more texture on my own city. Her tours have made me so much more conscious of the city that I have walked for 20 years now....
