I was part of the 12:00pm food tour in Dumbo [Brooklyn, NY] this weekend. It was cold and raining, but about 30 or so people still showed up. Everyone was there the 15 minutes prior to start time, as requested in the confirmation email. We waited and waited and waited. The guide never showed. The contact telephone number was of... More

Do not waste your money. 4 thumbs all the way down. My wife and I booked this tour and the tour guide never showed up. We waited over 45 mins in the rain with over 20 others, never to hear from anyone with any info concerning the tour, cancellations, and or refund. No call no text nothing. Everyone was left... More

I went to the website and could not click on the date I wanted, or any date.. Left two voicemails and got no response. Sent two emails - no response. When on chat... More

We only tried 3 cupcakes, the other 2 stops were for a macaroon and a bite of gelatto, so not really a "cupcake" tour. Four of the places we stopped at were shops we had just walked by on our way to get to the tour and most of them were chains. Our last stop was the bakery from Sex... More

We had an excellent time on this tour. The guide, Kyle, had so much information to share. He exceeded my expectations of how I thought the tour would be. He gave so much historic information about Little Italy and the surrounding areas. I highly recommend this tour for any gangster movie lovers and any history buffs.

Have gone on this tour two years in a row. Walter was our guide both times and he is wonderful. He gives you some very interesting history about the area and he can also help you find other places to eat during your visit to the city. The food is also very good!!

Whenever we are in NYC, my friend and I go on a food tour. We've been on about 15 and used various tour companies. We had never tried Best Tours so last week we went on Best Tour's Greenwich Village tour. It was great! Walter, our tour guide, gave us a lot of interesting info about the area and the... More

This little tour was so interesting. I am from Brooklyn originally, and it was nice to see a part of it so revitalized, plus learn its history. 5 small food samples were filling enough for lunch, and our tour guide Ben was great! Loved it.

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.
