We went on the NY Mafia Tour with Kyle. He's a very knowledgeable guide and we had a wonderful time.

I bought a Groupon tour and tried to make reserverations per instructions. It would not allow me to choose my selected dates or provide any availability information. I left a message over the phone after it rang for about 30 times and also sent a web message via their "Contact Us" link. I will revise my review if the experience... More

My husband and I received a gift from our son Max to tour through Little Italy and have a taste from four different100 year plus institutions. we thoroughly enjoyed the tour through about a six block square of what remains of Little Italy. Our tour guide Walter was excellent. He was a warm, friendly tour guide, low key and very... More

This is worth the time and money, The Chocolate tour consisted of eight stops and a wide variety of chocolate samples. Enough time was allowed to make additional purchases (usually at a discount) at the participating shops. By the time we were done I had a pleasant chocolate buzz. I was happy to learn the walk was a little more... More

We did the walking cupcake tour. There were about 20 people on our tour, which a times made it hard to hear our guide but the sights around us made it enjoyable so it didn't always matter to me. I was able to see places in New York City that I've never seen before. We went to six stops on... More

Vallory was great. She did more than show up cupcake places, she took us to different places throughout the city on the way. She took her time to make sure we all were with her, that we got everything we wanted at any place we stopped. It was a long tour but it was lots of fun. She also shared... More

We were pleasantly surprised on this tour that there as so much history rolled in, we just thought we were going to eat dessert. We had 26 people on the tour which it probably would not have went over 2 hours if we had a smaller group. Jessie was a guide and was so nice and accommodating. She was a... More

The end of July on a beautiful day, a friend and I went on the Great New York Chocolate walking tour. We decided to walk the High Line to Chelsea Market which was an added treat. The tour proceeded from Chelsea through the Village and Soho, so some very fun and interesting areas of the city. There were 12 of... More

We took the chauffeur driven "Secrets of New York" tour. Our tour guide asked us what kind of things we'd like to see (we said revolutionary war sites, 5 points historical sites and places the average new yorker wouldn't see). We've both lived in NYC for quite some time (and told the guide that) and wanted to see stuff that... More

I took the Little Italy food tour on Saturday, August 9th and was very disappointed in the experience. Our guide Ben was uninformed and didn't not seem very interested in being a tour guide. Our typical experience with other tour companies in NYC to date has been a well-informed and enthusiastic guide who enjoys sharing quaint stories about the area... More

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback, and we are sorry that you didn't have a more fulfilling experience with us. We hope you enjoyed the food tastings on the tour.
