“TRIBECA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

WOW! I had the joy of participating in the walking tour of Tribeca a few weeks ago. I enjoyed every minute of it! Lina was extremely knowledgeable of the history and the transformation of this neighborhood over time. She had interesting facts about the history as well as the neighborhood today. I can't wait to participate in another walking tour soon!

“Battery Park City -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I had the opportunity to join a group of my friends to take a walking tour of Battery Park City. Lina was so knowledgeable of the area , she took us to great sites explaining the importance of this amazing location in the early days of NYC history we learn about the importance of Ellis Island in processing over 12M immigrants and even who does the Statue of Liberty belongs to ... That is right ask Lina ,she will tell you . I cannot even stress how wonderful she was! Thanks Lina I will make sure to meet with you on my next visit to the Bid Apple.

“Chock full of knowledge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

I highly recommend the Financial District walking tour with Lina. Not only does it give you tremendous knowledge of the architecture and history of the oldest inhabited area of Manhattan. It give your in-depth knowledge of the founding of our country. The founding fathers were such an intricate part of the history of lower Manhattan and Lena covers this during the tour. To be able to see where George Washington was inaugurated, bade farewell to his troops, and where he attended church was fascinating. The topper on the tour is Lina's warm and witty style. This is a must for anyone that is here visiting to the native New Yorker.
