This was one of the worst tours I've been on. We arrived at the meeting spot and met our tour guide. It was a small group, I believe it was 10 and 2 joined us later. The tour guide started out at the first location and spoke about chocolate for about 2 minutes. We walked to the store and he... More

We took the Italian Food Tour of New York with Walter on July 9, 2014. Walter was a great guide, very relaxed and told interesting stories about the neighbourhoods and specific locations as we walked. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to others.

We went on the chocolate tour and the Little Italy tour during our recent trip to NYC. Both were great new ways to see a familiar city. The shops were great and the guides were fun. Highly recommend both tours! PS- Lilac Chocolates are to die for!

Our guide, Walter, was excellent. The top was fun, informative, interesting... And great fun. The food was all excellent and Little Italy all the way. Even saw a few of the actors from Godfather and Sopranos. All in all a great experience. Recommended.

I was given a 'Chocolate Tour for two' as a gift and took a friend of mine with me on Wed 7/23. We had a great time despite the hot humid weather. We went to about 7 different places sampling a variety of delicious treats - most of them chocolate in origin. The real treat, however, was the non stop... More

I went on the Chocolate Tour of NYC on Sunday, July 20th. Our tour guide,Jessie,was very knowledgeable not only about the stops on the tour and the chocolate, but about the history of the areas where we walked. She gave us great information from origins of terms we use, to facts on history, to pop culture references. It made the... More

Being a native New Yorker, I'm always skeptical about going on a walking tour but this cupcake tour was great! I took my mother with me we purchased tickets through Groupon. Our tour leader (she was young and blonde I forgot her name I'm sorry!) was so great and personable she made it fun. The people on the tour, mostly... More

Amazing amount of food! Loved the pizza at Bleecker Street Pizza, and we each got a full slice -- I was only expecting a small, sample-sized piece. Loved the food on the other stops as well -- bagel with veggie cream cheese (only 1/4 a bagel, but it was still a sizeable amount), cupcake at Molly's, which is a fun... More
