    Personable tour of NYC
    Laura_C, May 2024
    Megan was a great tour guide! It felt like we were walking around downtown with a friend who had a lot of information about New York. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and were able to share info about the area with our waiter later that made us feel very knowledgeable!
    Interesting Tour with Lots of History
    Thomas_M, Apr 2024
    Our tour guide Megan was amazing. She had a huge amount of knowledge and was clearly very interested in the history of New York. She had some great tips for photo ops, bathrooms, and even things to do after the tour. We very much enjoyed our tour and really glad we did it.

    Great walking tour
    Sophie_W, Mar 2024
    We booked the Walking Tour with the family. Megan has done a great job explaining the history/stories with rich knowledge and passion. My 11 years old said this tour is definitely one of the top 2 highlights for his New York trip (another one is the Harry Porters Show - no surprise ^-^). We had a great fun!
    Response from Host, Apr 2024
    Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled to have such high praise from your 11 year old. And they’re right, Harry Potter Show is 🔥 too :) Thank you again!
    Meghan is great, rain or shine!
    Emily_C, Dec 2023
    Meghan was incredibly knowledgeable and expertly navigated us through an incessant New York rainstorm. We appreciated her energy and flexibility as we made some unplanned stops for umbrellas (and overhangs!). Despite the weather, we still had an excellent time, which really speaks to her tour guide abilities. She answered all of our questions with enthusiasm and depth. Five stars!

    My wife and I happened to be the only ones signed up for our time slot, so we ended up getting a private tour with the one and only, Meghan Sara! Whether you’re from out of town or not, this is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon. Highly recommend and we’ll definitely do it again :)

    Incredible guide. Best we have ever had on private tours in the US or Europe….Meghan. Her knowledge of the beginnings of the city was encyclopedic and passionate.
