Great tour of a number of local eateries, with sampling along the way! Ask for Matthew. He is very knowledgeable of little New York details. He picked a good variety of stops.

We had a great experience and our guide Matthew made the tour not only yummy but also provided a lot of great insights around the area and the foodie places. He is very knowledgeable, smart and a fantastic storyteller. I would absolutely recommend to do the tour. Looking forward to try the other tours.

My wife and I met up with our grown kids visiting New York City and wanted something fun to do. We signed up with Sidewalks Tours and came across the Pizza, Beer, and History tour. I figured, how can you go wrong with that? I never thought I'd learn more about Pizza in my life. We tried three very different... More

Our guide, Matthew (who helps write the tours), was very easy to speak with and very informative. We were lucky to have a small group and plenty of time to ask questions. Of the three pizza's, we liked John's the best for it's true simplicity. The sauce at Bleecker street was amazing. Beer breaks were nice and provided opportunity to... More

Ian was great! Loved this tour. We visited very different restaurants, tried knishes, pastrami, pickles donuts, dumplings, I am vegetarian and Ian made sure I had something to eat at every restaurant. Ian was funny, informative, helpful and kept all of us safe, happy and moving along.

Took our 8 year old son along on this tour and it was a highlight of our trip. The food was delicious but the history of the area was the highlight. Just amazing. Recommend :)

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
