“Great tour and guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

I took the Lower East Side Tasting Tour with Kevin as a guide and had a great experience. The information given was very informative and helpful and the food tastings were great. A really good variety of foods from pickled pineapple, to pizza, to doughnuts, etc. We also got a great map of the area with the locations we visited marked so we could return later. I get to NYC several times a year and have taken many tours. This was one of the best. I am looking forward to my next tour with this great tour company.

“So much fun!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

Had such a great time on the West Village food tour we took last weekend! Kevin was our tour guide and he was so great! He told us all sorts of great facts about places within the village and kept us entertained for the full three hours! The food was so yummy and I felt like I got a great understanding of the West Village from the places we went. I loved that even when we went to a well-known place like Magnolia Bakery (which many people have already been to for their cupcakes) he recommended that we also get their banana pudding. It is by far the best dessert I have had in a long time and I loved that he was aware of cool secrets about each location. Highly recommended! Keep up the good work! Can't wait to take another one of Sidewalks of New York Tours' next time I am in town!

“My NYC Photo Tour (with Ben Russell)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

I have been a New Yorker for 10 years, but had recently purchased my first Digital SLR camera and wanted to know how best to photograph the city I love so much! I turned to Ben Russell and Sidewalks of NYC. What an amazing experience! Through this wonderful tour filled with lots of photography instruction and one-on-one attention I was able to look at NYC as a photog would. It was like being a tourist for the first time in years! The tour included the West Village, the HighLine and Meatpacking district. My eyes were open to little bursts of color and visual gems that I otherwise would walk right by in my busy NYC life.
Thank you, Ben and Sidewalks of NY. I left that tour feeling like a true artist!

We are a family with 2 adult daughters. We all absolutely LOVED our food tour in the West Village with Kevin. Good food, historical info, very well planned and totally enjoyable for all of us. We have traveled frequently and this was a five star tour for all four of us! Highly recommended!!!!!
