    This tour was perfect for our group of 3. Guide Jeff was not only well informed, he was enthusiastic, personable and lots of fun! We learned so much, and there's so much to learn. We started the walking tour after having visited the National 911 Memorial Museum. It was a short walk between the Museum and the start of the tour; we wound our way through lower Manhattan and back up to Ground Zero, to end where we'd started earlier in the day. It worked out wonderfully.

    Went on this tour after work with some colleagues and it was great, it was a mixed group of people from NYC and around the country. Our tour guide Katherine did an amazing job of explaining every little detail around lower Manhattan accompanied with pictures through history. She was very engaging and made the tour unique for us; pointing out different architecture when members of our group said that was something they enjoyed. Highly recommend Katherine and this tour!!

    I took some work colleagues from out of town on a walking tour of lower Manhattan conducted by Katherine. It was a private tour and she was incredibly flexible on timing and location, meeting us at our office after work. The tour itself was so interesting. Even as a native NYer who walks past some of these historic places every day, I learned so much. Katherine was so well-versed in not just the history and landmarks of places like ground zero, but the emotion and zeitgeist of the city at the time of the attack and after. It was very authentic. Throughout the tour Katherine coupled her explanations with pictures that reinforced her message and really brought the history of NYC to life. She also tailored the tour to her audience very well. For instance, we were all professional women and she made a point to talk about the history of women in NYC and Wall Street in particular. Booking with Babylon was quick and easy. They were super responsive about setting up my private tour on a day’s notice, and sent me discounts for future tours after I booked that I will definitely take advantage of. Already looking forward to my next tour with Katherine!

    We took a walking tour of lower Manhattan conducted by Katherine. I learned so much about lower Manhattan, which had never occurred to me as being a touristy area. I really enjoyed Katherine's heartfelt explanations of each stop, and she even took a little extra time with us to make sure we saw a couple of extra areas at Battery Park. Would definitely recommend this!
