My wife and I went on a walking tour of the Bleeker St. Neighborhood. Our tour guide Jess was very thorough and friendly. Her insights and historical knowledge made the tour. The cupcakes, especially Molly's cupcakes, gelato, cookies and macarons were delicious. We're looking forward to revisiting each of these establishments.

Took the tour June 5 with my aunt. The tour guide was cheerful however the tour and 'cupcakes' lacking. If you go to BestTours.com and try to read about the specifics of this tour it is almost impossible since most of the writing is in white font over graphics of a cupcake with white frosting. So here is the lowdown... More

Our tour was simply amazing! Our guide was knowledgeable and very nice. He gave us great info on the neighborhood and history. The food was so tasty everywhere we went! We had a Groupon which made this an even better deal!

Three of us took the chocolate tour this past weekend. We bought our tickets through Groupon which meant a nice discount off the regular price. The tour was 2 hours, as advertised, and we covered a lot of ground -- wear good shoes! Our tour guide, Kyle, was great at managing our group of 23 as well as navigating the... More

We had an informative tour of Little Italy. Our food tastings turned out to be an absolutely delicious meal, and was much more than mere tastings. Walter, our guide, really made this a unique experience, and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Not to be missed!

I was so excited to go on the chocolate tour! After all, how can anything associated with chocolate be bad? The NY City Chocolate Lover's Tour was one of the worst tours that I have ever been on. The tour guide Ben was lackluster at best. He was dull and was the only one laughing at his own jokes. He... More

The Brooklyn Food tour was a very disappointing experience. I have done other food tours and this can only be described as a rip off. We never met any of the staff or proprietors of the businesses and for 3 of the stops we did not go inside them at all. We stood on the dirty street to eat our... More

I was very excited and booked the chocolate tour a month in advance of it. However 3 days prior to the tour (in Oxford, not where I live) I received an e-mail cancelling the trip because there were not enough people on the tour. I had paid a lot of money per person for my family and arrange our city... More

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
