This was a great way to explore Little Italy and Chinatown. We would never have gone there on our own. If you love food this is the tour for you! The perfect amount of food that tasted all the better because of the fantastic history we got from our guide Liz. We even went back and walked around the area... More

I usually come to NYC for the theatre, but opted to try something different this trip and booked the Chinatown and Little Italy food tour. What a fun day. The tour is about 3 hours long starting with meeting our tour guide Alanna at one of Italy's finest and oldest bakeries. I opted to purchase a cup of coffee at... More

Our tour guide was amazing. She was full of knowledge and happy to be there. It is a perfect gift for any occasion. My boyfriend and I are now eager to go back and try the restaurants that were recommended as well as other trips by Ahoy.

This was my second time on this tour with the same tour guide. It was just as good if not better the second time around. My husband and I went for our 20th anniversary and to say he is not an NYC guy is a huge understatement. With that being said he really enjoyed the history info as well as... More

We just took this tour and really enjoyed it! We were able to get a very personal and knowledgeable look at some historical restaurant and food providers. We were able to try quite a varied selection of foods from the Little Italy and Chinatown areas. We explored areas we otherwise would not have known about. We really enjoyed the history... More

Alana was a great tour guide, being a linguist herself just added to the experience. Her knowledge of and passion for the histories, cultures , food and colorful stories of the little Italy and Chinatown areas made this food tour one of the highlights of our 5 day visit to NYC. Thank you very much :-)

If you want to get the flavor of Little Italy and Chinatown go on the Ahoy tour. Besides having delicious food, you are also given the history of the area and fun antidotes. The guide, Alana was wonderful, well prepared, and knowledgeable. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to all my friends.

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
