Cupcake Tour of NYC

My family and I went on the Cupcake Tour in NYC on Easter Sunday. We bought Groupons so it was a real bargain! We had no idea what to expect, aside from a lot of walking. We... read more

Was very excited to take the tour given the reviews on tripadvisor. Was NOT a good tour $50US for 2 hours of standing around, feeling like an imposition on each stop ( made to squish in a corner, or wait on the curbside, etc.)and rushed to move on once the food arrived. Oh the food, pizza was the best part... More

We had a great time with Walter, enjoying the pizza, bagel, falafel and cakes. Not too much walking and the kids (ages 10 and 7) really enjoyed it. The pizza was amazing!

This was a really decadent tour. We had a perfect day, lots of yummy desserts and fun facts. We even had a bit of NYC history included. The 2 hours went very quickly. I highly recommend it.

Marci was our guide and we loved the tour. We had people ranging in age from 7 to 65. Each stop was better then the one before. Molly's was my favorite. You get to sit in a swing and eat cupcakes. What could be better then that.

Chandler is friendly and informative tour guide. He was knowledgeable about Brooklyn and the formation of NyC. Food was great but portions could be larger. We are BBQ, pizza, bagels, small bits of candy and a nice size sample of ice cream. I've also had Marcia and Walter as your guides on the chocolate, cupcake and west village food tours.... More

Great time, great eats in a great city. Our guide was knowledgeable not just in the chocolates we tasted but filled us in on NYC history. Highly recommend this tour. I went with my young adult daughters and they loved it. Kids were on the tour with us and I heard no complaints.

Loved this tour. Walter was super informative and all the food was great. The highlights for me were the Pizza, the Cupcake and the Macaron but it was all good. I liked that it was in a fairly small area so you didn't have to walk miles between stops. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who loves good food and... More

We did the Pizza Food Tour today....it was awful! Overbooked and unorganized...website promises max of 20 people and there were 27 on the tour which created havoc. The tour guide, Justin, had the personality of a wet mop and appeared disinterested in being there. When I asked about why there were so many people on the tour he just said,... 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.
