Terrific adventure provided to us by our guide Ian Dunn. Spending 3 hours tasting and walking the streets of the lower east side taught and showed from an 'intimate perspective' to those that have only heard of the area before. Make the commitment - book the tour for a guided experience you will enjoy....

The whole experience was an eye opener. Not only was our guide (Melania) very informative, but I learned more about my own city than I knew before, and I live here! The food tour was delicious: authentic falafel from Mamoun's (definitely try the spicy home made sauce), great samples of 'arancino's' and sopressata from Faicco's delicatessen, slices of Artichoke Pizza,...

My mother and I did the LES tasting tour. Ian was our guide and he was awesome. Lots of different foods to taste. I would recommend this tour to others. Wear comfortable shoes, as there is a lot of walking and standing. But it is a great way to try foods and see places that you wouldn't typically see on... More

Maybe it just wasn't for me because I am from NYC. Ended up being a private tour because no one else was booked. Which had its pluses and minuses. Was hoping to interact with more people though. The "history" was just rumored stories of famous people who might have stayed or lived in various spots around the West Village. Did... More

Beautiful day, knowledgeable host Ian setting the pace, what more could you ask for? Perfect balance of information and local knowledge and of course - great food! Great couple from England to share the trip with and swap notes with. Gotta check out Sweet Revenge - what an inspirational story! Would highly recommend this tour. Val (Australia)

Ian our tour guide would have to be the most authentic, knowledgeable and entertaining person to take us around the neighborhood. The food was incredibly delicious and tasty. I did not want the tour to end. Thank you.

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.
