Even as a life long New Yorker with roots that go back nearly 200 years, I learn so much everytime I have been on a Lina tour. She gives you the inside track on the who, why, where of it all. Places I have walked by for nearly 50 years now have a whole new meaning after Lina's tour. Sometimes the obvious is right in your face and sometimes it's not. I love, love, love her tours and hope to take more in the near future.

Highly recommend taking a walk with Gotham Walking Tours of New York City in any neighborhood of interest. I spent a wonderful afternoon with Lina and a great group of others, walking around the upper east side of the city. Lina is a wealth of information, loved learning how Central Park played an important part of the development of this community, all the styles of architecture, the people and history. It's a wonderful way to learn and explore the city at the same time with a great hostess. Good walking shoes required.

The unique special attention to story telling detail is what Lina is all about. Plus she is fun!!! Do not hesitate to book a tour of a New York neighborhood and have a great time learning about important architectural details, history, design and personal experiences. Lina is a smart New Yorker suited perfectly for this role. Go Lina!

Lina is the perfect tour guide - personable, extremely well spoken, and possessing a wealth of history and interesting city nuances that make for an absolutely fabulous experience! This couple from Philly would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a comprehensive tour of a specific district. We look forward to returning to NYC for another tour with Gotham Walking Tours. Thank you so very much, Lina !

Cultured, kind and great company: Lina is exactly the kind of person I'd recommend discerning travellers spend their precious, limited time in this city with. As a travel writer testing out walking tours of the City for the Louis Vuitton New York Guide 2014, I wanted to meet professional guides I could recommend in the guidebook. Smart, interesting, and warm, she met me in Tribeca and we took a walk from the north of Battery Park down through through Battery Park City, taking in the Irish Hunger Memorial, Poets House library, Winter Garden, Museum of Jewish Heritage, a Living Memorial to the Holocaust and ending up at Pier A.
