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.

Went on the walking tour of the lower east side with guide Ian. We ate some awesome food at places I would never have found or gone into, except for Katz's deli. Ian was friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. He kept us entertained with interesting bits of history about the area. Would definitely take another of these tours. Even my husband,... More

We did the tour of the West Village and absolutely loved it. Our tour guide Ian was really knowledgeable about the area and we learnt so much about it all the way through from the tenements of the old days to the now very expensive town houses and apartments. The tour was full of both pop culture trivia and old... More

I signed up for their food truck tour and loved it. My wife watches all those food network shows and she really wanted to try the food trucks in NYC but we didn't know which ones to go to so we googled around and found this tour. Donte was friendly, funny and easy to talk to. The food was delicious.... More

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.
