You call, we listen, and then suggest the perfect day for you in the most interesting neighborhoods: Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Times Square and many more, sampling the best foods the City has to offer. This is nothing like a bus tour; it's a personal experience where the history is part of the tour, but the behind-the-scenes stories are part of us. « less

We did the combo tour of Greenwich village and downtown NY hosted by Alex. On a gloriously sunny day we saw a fantastic side of the city with great local insight plus enough food to be absolutely full by the end of it. Food stops included chocolate, drinks, bagels, sandwich melts, pizza and canolas. We added the historic downtown NY... More

We had to reschedule our tour due to flight delays and upgraded to the Highline/Greenwich Village tour on the recommendation of our guide Alex. His knowledge was first class and he certainly knew the best places to eat! Would recommend Manhattan Walking Tours as they only operate with small groups - up to 8 - we saw other groups of... More

We did the High Line and Greenwich Village tour. Alex knows so much about the history of every brick, theres not a question he cant answer. Highly recommend. Was full at the end of the tour.

The Greenwich Village/Highline tour was top notch! My wife and I used Manhattan Walking Tours in December and had such a great experience, we used them again in July. We were able to use Alex each time we've used MWT. He is excellent - full of knowledge and obviously enjoys doing what he does best -- guiding tours! The food... More

The Greenwich Village walking tour with Alex was superb! He was a wonderful tour guide with a lot of energy and knowledge about the areas we visited and about the establishments. (I should also mention his assistant Caroline was very kind and helpful as well.) Alex brought us to some outstanding venues. We can’t wait to go back to the... More

I took this tour about a month ago with my mother and sister. As a teenage male, I was skeptical at first. Luckily, Gary was the best tour guide I could've asked for. He has a superior knowledge of the history and a charisma that made that day one of the most enjoyable of my 4 day trip. Prepare your... More

My mom and I were in NYC for just three days. As Californians, we wanted to learn about the history of the city and get a bit of local flavor. I had reached out to Garry a few months prior to our trip with some inquiry questions, and as our dates drew closer, he actually reached back to me to... More

Not sure if this was a historical tour that visited a lot of great restaurants or a food tour that covered the deep and colorful history of Hells Kitchen. Either way it was a great way to spend an afternoon and meet some incredible people. The small size group size, and animated, engaged guide made it feel more like an... More

We did the International Food Lovers tour, which was 2 hours long. This is our 7th food tour in NYC (with a variety of companies) and we can't figure out why this one costs so much more. It worked with our schedule and we were told it was going to be a lot of food. The tour was no different... More

This isn't a cheesy tour! I in depth look at the history of the city comes along with great tastes of Hell's Kitchen and insight into Central Park. PLENTY to eat on this tour - you won't be hungry and you will be glad that you are walking off the calories! Nancy was our guide and very knowledgeable, friendly and... More
