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

This walking tour (the drunk history tour) was one of the best parts of our trip! I'd definitely put it in the top 5 of of highlights from the 5 day vacation! The tour guide was great- so knowledgeable and personable. She was very friendly, easy to talk to and fun! The history and pop culture tid-bits were super interesting... More

Having been to New York before and doing all the standard tourist sites before, I thought this would be a fun way to get a little bit off the beaten track and eat lots of lovely things along the way!! I have to say that I was a little bit disappointed on what I expected the day to be like,... More

We took our 17 year old daughter who has a flare for baking on this 2 hour walking tour through the city. Despite the bitter cold day (it is a LOT of walking), we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide was knowledgable and lively. We enjoyed all 6 of the bakeries we sampled but we were all in agreement that... More

I just got back from my chocolate tour. Disappointing would be a very good word to describe my non- adventure. Seven stops, 3 pieces of historical information and very little chocolate sums it up. The website shows 9 stops but the guide announced she was taking us to 7. Our travel guide, Marcy, did what she was supposed to do.... More

We went on the Little Italy tour with Walter in early October and were impressed with his knowledge of the neighborhood and food stops. We've been on several other tours and really enjoy hearing about the buidlings and history of the neighborhood we have just walked by so many times. Walter was very interesting and professional and answered all our... More
