As a person who has lived in NYC for 10 years I am always looking for new and fun things to do… well I definitely found one this weekend. Ahoy NY Tours & Tasting!
A friend and I went on the Upper West Side Dessert Tour. Lead by Alana, our tour guide, we walked around to different dessert shops all within a few blocks from each other. We were told the history of certain attractions and buildings in the area. We also learned some of the interesting ingredients in the desserts we were sampling. Alana was informative and always gave us a few recommendations in case we were overwhelmed by all the lovely dessert choices.
The best thing about the tour was there was something for everyone. I personally am not a huge cupcake/cookie desert person but there was one stop with gelato which is right up my alley. Since you can usually take desserts “to go” I was able to purchase a few items for later when I wanted a little treat.
I highly recommend taking one of these tours. It lasts about 2 ½ - 3 hours depending on the group size. Wear comfortable shoes and feel free to bring a camera.
This was definitely a great way to experience NYC without spending a lot of money.
