We had an amazing and extremely knowledgeable guide who brought history to life with a remarkable talent. Meghan is a true gift to the walking tour and everyone should request her.
Great stories about NYC

We took a tour of NYC in August. Meghan Sara was our guide and she was incredibly knowledgeable about the city, its history and its people. She was fun and good with the kids. Also, she reacted really professional when we told her that we would have to cut the tour about one hour short due to the kids. At the end we even got a slice of pizza for free.

Our animated and knowledgeable guide was great at communicating the creation and development of the new city and country.
Great tour of lower Manhattan

My husband and I visit our daughter at least 2 times a year and enjoy exploring and learning about Brooklyn and Manhattan. Meghan was an entertaining and knowledgable guide to lower Manhattan, beginning at the Brooklyn Bridge and ending at the WTC Memorial. There was only one other tourist with us, so it was easy hear what Meghan said and to ask questions. The pace was appropriate and we came away with some great memories. We had visited the Brooklyn Museum the previous day and this walking tour was the perfect complement. We both highly recommend Meghan and her tour to any tourist (and residents of NYC) - you'll learn a lot and get some good exercise at the same time.
Exploring Lower Manhattan with Meghan Sara

We both really REALLY enjoyed our tour with Meghan Sara, made all the more memorable as she was such a great guide. Her knowledge was second to none and we learnt a lot as well as finding her very warm and friendly. We covered so much of Lower Manhattan in a relatively short time finishing with a delicious slice of pizza. We also found Meghan very sympathetic as whilst getting our pizza we discovered that Queen Elizabeth had died, rather a surreal moment for all of us and we appreciated the hug, Meghan! Many thanks for a great tour (and the hug).
