This was a very insightful and delicious experience of Little Italy and Chinatown. Alana knows her stuff and can bring the history and family connections to your plate. It was especially wonderful to step into establishments which have been part of the community for decades and receive the benefits of Ahoy's relationship and understand how the community has evolved.

We loved the tour...I was in NYC with my daughters for a girls weekend....and we absolutely loved it being the "foodie" girls that we are. The history and information our guide shared with us was unbelievable...we recommend highly! Going to try to this in every city I visit....great way to get to know the culture of a city!

The Little Italy/Chinatown tour was an excellent experience and made the huge area of Chinatown much more accessible to a first time visitor. Our tour was during a hot summer day so towards the end the heat became slightly unbearable however this was the only issue with the tour. All of the food stops were excellent and our guide (Liz...

Lots of history and hit a number of the more famous locations. Would like to have seen more food to taste and maybe another location (ice cream factory??). But overall would recommend to others to take. There is very little walking so can always go back to your favourite stops

This was a great tour that exceeded my expectations. Our guide Alanna was delightful...very friendly, cheerful, and well informed. The tour includes stops at I think 8 food shops or restaurants with tastings at each one, including everything from cannolis to Chinese dumplings. All together it amounts to a fair sized lunch. In addition to an in depth knowledge of... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
