Kyle made the tour both interesting and delicious! I especially enjoyed the history of the Little Italy area of Manhattan. The food samples very carefully selected and a good representation of the Italian culture.

They cancelled our tour the day prior due to low reservations (4 in our group). Other tour companies allowed only 4. None of the alternative tours worked for us so I requested a refund. The company is non responsive to my requests for refund. I paid for the tickets on December 13, 2016, the tour was scheduled for January 14,... More

Me and my fiancé went to New York in December and I decided to surprise him with a superhero tour. The day before the tour I got an email from best tours saying the tour was cancelled due to low numbers. Four weeks later I am still waiting for a refund! I have been emailing best tours and using the... More

We signed up for two tours in Boston by Best Tours. The first one gave a wrong address but we eventually found the group. The tour was a cupcake tour and over priced. The second was a ghost tour in Boston and they just did not show up to give the tour. My group of three and two other groups... More

1 great tour guide (Mallory), 5 stops, 2 hours, 2 mini cupcakes, 1 big cupcake, 1 macaron, and 1 spoonful of amazing sorbet. Was a fun and informative 2 hour tour through the streets of Union Square down into Greenwich Village. Was a great way to walk down streets we might not have and also learned fun facts about each...

I have taken several of their food tours. Chocolate Tours (Brooklyn & Manhattan), Cupcake Tour, Italian Food Tour and most recently the Chinatown Food Tour. I enjoy the walking, history and tasting. In fact we have found some new favorite places to go to (Milk & Cookies, Baked By Melissa) as a result of enjoying these tours. I have gone... More

As a gift, my girlfriend got us a coffee tour of Philly. They canceled the day of and just sent us an email. Good thing we hadn't left our apartment (90 mins away), yet! Then, I got her a patisserie tour of south Manhattan. When we arrived, the guide said "Oh, is that what they're calling it now? It's actually... More

Great experience during our walking chocolate tour with Marcy! It was gently snowing all day, which kept other customers out of the shops, so we were able to eat our delicious treats inside all of the quaint bakeries. And because we were a small tour of 6 we got extra samples! All in all, a great day!

We went on the Italian food tour and the tour itself was ok, I like Italian food and culture but there wasn't much in terms of either. The guide however (Brandon) was awful! He had zero enthusiasm or interest in what he was doing and just went through the motions leaving everyone pretty bored. At the end, he was waiting... More

Great time. My daughter really liked it. Mallory is the best. She brings a great attitude to the experience and it was an enjoyable experience for the 23 of us.

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
