I took Great New York Tour's CHOCOLATE TOUR yesterday. We stopped at 5 shops. The tour guide shared interesting informative about the shops and their history, etc. and their connection to chocolate, but NOTHING was said about the tastings we had other than it's this type of chocolate or that flavor cupcake. For a tour marketed about chocolate, it wasn't.... More

being a native new yorker, i wasn't particularly looking forward to this tour, but we were really glad that we went! the tour took around 5 stops, from brick oven pizza, to authentic bbq, to homemade ice cream. Also, who knew there was a chocolate factory in brooklyn! In between each stop, our tour guide (brendan) was very engaging, and... More

We did the Italian Food Tour about a week ago and enjoyed it very much. All 4 of the food stops were delicious and the whole tour was enlightening about the area. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions asked of him. It was a small group of about 10, which was a good size for... More

I took my two sons on the Cupcake Tour. The best part of the tour was being in the West Village - it's about 1.5 mile walk over the course of 2 hours, so not a big deal. Great wandering the streets and seeing all the great boutiques. The second best part was our tour guide - her name starts... More

My husband and I have probably done 20 tours in various cities and overseas, the Italian food tour was by far the worst. So bad we actually left halfway. Things that I hated about this tour- 1) number of people of the tour. I didn't count but there had to be 25-30 people on this tour. Way too large to... More

As a family, we did the Gangster Walking Tour. Kyle was our guide; he was excellent and very knowledgeable. He gave us a great history lesson and insight on Little Italy. So many times we have walked through the neighborhood without giving a thought to how it was established and how it changed through time. In the Spring we will... More

I gave my mom the Chocolate tour for 2 for her birthday. We had so much fun. With Justin as our guide we visited many shops that either have chocolate candy, cookies, cupcakes, tea(yes chocolate tea) and more. We were down in Greenwich Village and Soho. Justin was energetic and personable and gave us interesting historical facts about that area... More

Took the Great New York Food Tour with Marcy on Saturday, December 6th. Even though it was a rainy day, Marcy made the tour fun and interesting. The food was great! Got a chance to taste things we would not normally know about. We were very full when it was over. Marcy was a great guide and I would highly... More

I took my college freshman niece on the Great New York food tour and we had a terrific time. All the food choices were so delicious, and our guide Walter was great- funny, nice, knowledgeable, good with people. Highly recommended!

My husband and I enjoyed our recent Ghost Walk Tour. Our guide, Kyle, was especially knowledgable and well versed on his history and ghost tales. He was friendly and had a wonderful speaking voice. His words made one able to visualize the scenes he was describing. He made the tour a lot of fun, including his candy give-away trivia sessions.... More
