To begin, I must say that my family LOVED our tour guide. Brendan was very informative. We learned a lot and the information was appreciated by the kids of all ages. We learned about and saw houses of writers. We also saw a lot of historical landmarks. I think the best for the kids was the apartment building of Monica... More

Went with five others during a girls trip to NYC. Mallory, our guide, is a doll. Very helpful, pleasant, and fun. Walked down some beautiful streets in the NYU/Greenwich Village area and got to see Washington Square--an unexpected bonus. As far as the cupcakes--they were just ok. The best thing we tried was the gelato at Amorino and we went... More

My daughter and I decided to do something different this time in NYC and I found a Groupon deal for a cup cake tour. We were very lucky to have picked a day when the weather was great which made it even more enjoyable. We were met by Alex in Union Square who expected 15 people in all but only... More

My mom bought my boyfriend a cupcake tour for his birthday so we went today. We met at union square, our tour guide was named Marcy. She was really nice, upbeat and knowledgeable. Its good to wear sneakers because you will be walking around for about 2 hours. We went to baked by Melissa first, then crumbs, amorino (for gelato),... More

This was hands down one of the best tours I've been on. You get to sample delicious cupcakes all while walking around NYC. Mallory was an awesome tour guide. She was so energetic and informative. I'd definitely go on this tour again!

I don't often write negative reviews but this was the absolute worst food tour or for that matter worst tour I have ever been on. The guide did not tell us anything about food, the neighborhood or the establishments we visited. He walked ahead of us, not talking to anyone, stopped in front of various places and passed food out.... More

My friends treated me to this tour as part of my bachelorette party weekend, and it was a blast. The tastes were all delicious and from some of my favorite spots (mmmm Molly's) and our guide, Mallory, was sweet, perky and knowledgeable. We lucked out with a perfect weather day, and even caught the annual NYC pillow fight on our... More
