Whoever designed the website should refund the fee and then be shot. Without exaggeration, it took nearly an hour, with the help of their online chat people, to finally get through it and that's only because I eventually (at their request) gave them my login name and pasword so they could go in and do it for me. Several years... More

We met on a cold Sunday afternoon by union square park. Mallory was super cool and informative. I thought the tour itself was well balanced. Nothing too far to walk and not all stops were for cupcakes. I was a bit relieved, I mean I'm all for cupcakes but mixing in the gelato and macaroons were nice. Super laid back... More

The tour consisted of 5 stops but only 2 of them were for cupcakes. It was a bit disappointing in that respect - but the other 3 stops were yummy (so I can't complain too much). Moreover, Mallory, our tour guide, sparkled! She made eating the goodies even more enjoyable.

This is the second time I've done a Best City Tour and I've never had a problem. My friends can attest that I'm pretty high strung and need everything to go smoothly. Which it has for both the tours I've taken. Yesterday we did The Best Food Tour. Six stops at restaurants and delis in the Village. We arrived in... More

Our guide Brandon was at the location on time, he was in contact with us prior to our arrival & was friendly and informative when we got there. The tour started on time. Brandon was clear spoken, provided interesting and thorough history or the area. He took care never to leave anyone behind ( which is a great challenge in... More

So much fun and a great group and a great tour guide - Mallory - she was fun and informative! Easy to find the start of the tour - right at the corner and all of the stops were very close to each other!

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.
