The tour was wonderful--our guide Brendan was knowledgable about not only the chocolate, but about the whole Chelsea/West Village area. He highlighted many interesting facts about the history of the area and the role the area played in TV and film that many native New Yorkers didn't know! There was a group of 12 of us (all ladies) and we... More

Small, congenial groups, wonderful, informative tour guides, like Alex and Walter, help to make this a perfect way to taste and experience NYC. Good for tourists, visitors... More

After experiencing difficulty confirming a date for the tour which was purchased through Groupon we got to experience the Ghost Tour of New York. The tour was interesting. Since it was a walking tour, it concentrated on the Village area which also makes sense as it is the oldest section of the city. There was nothing spooky or scary about... More

We had a lovely day walking downtown NYC on the cupcake tour. Our guide Kyle was fantastic! He had so many great tidbits and stories about various places and parks we walked past. So it's not just cupcakes, you learn fun history about NY. It's great for all ages! They have many other tours that we are excited to try.... More

We were very excited to take the Chelsea Chocolate tour and booked it over a month in advance. On the day of the event we arrived 15 minutes early and met 2 other people scheduled for our tour and waited for the guide, and waited and waited. At departure time(11AM) I called the office, only to discover that no one... More

I took my mom and her husband, both in their late sixties, on this tour and we all loved it. Besides the great chocolate, we explored some parts of Manhattan that we would have never gone to by ourselves. Our tour guide Marcie was amazing, not only was she very knowledgable, but she also slowed her explanations down to give... More

All the desserts were amazing and our tour guide was FULL OF FANTASTIC HISTORICAL INFORMATION and ARCHITECTURAL NUGGETS about the areas... More

It's was our first Great New York Tour. Our tour guide Walter was amazing. He gave us a perfect mix of historical information and delicious food. Walter made it a truly enjoyable experience and we will definitely do another tour.
