A Thoroughly Enjoyable Tour Through Tribeca!
Terry_F, Nov 2023
Our guide, Meghan Sara, was very knowledgeable, animated, and enthusiastic throughout our 2+ hours tour. She provided a mix of historical information, restaurant/bakery/café recommendations, a brief stop inside the lobby of the beautiful Western Union building, and interesting background stories about Tribeca, including a surprise end-of-the-tour story about the Beatles' connection to Tribeca. It was a great experience! Highly recommend.

Wonderful tour
Paul_L, Jun 2023
We had a terrific time on the tour. Mehgan was an animated guide with a wealth of information on the area. Of course we would have walked right by some interesting buildings and history without noticing many of the details. Highly recommended from someone who is usually not too enthusiastic about tours. Good to take the tour early in your stay if you are a visitor as there are good lunch and dinner suggestions
