“Brilliant walking tour with insights to NYC and excellent photos to take home”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We took a 3 hour walking tour with Aaron in NYC and would highly recommend the tour and photos to everyone. It was brilliant to get some insights about life in NYC and how it's growing up and living as Nwe Yorker in the big Apple. As well as great tips what to see and what to do. It was also amazing to get some pictures together with my husband as it's always difficult to get great photos together of all the wonderful places. The photos were amazing and Aaron managed to capture the very best sides of us and make us look even better than in reality ;) As a tour guide Aaron was very insightful,well travelled and cultured and highly intelligent so the conversation was fabulous. Thank you for the lovely time and soulful photos.

Great time with Dante enjoying sights, sounds and especially food on the West Village Food Tour. Just the right mix of information and fun. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in learning about this part of Manhattan. Thanks Dante for a fun, informative & delicious time.

“A must do in NYC”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Our family of 6 from Australia went on 2 food tours with sidewalks of New York during our recent visit to NYC. Our ages ranged from 18 to 58 and we all loved it!
One tour visited the lower East side and he other the West village.
. Places visited were diverse and we enjoyed great food at all. Favorite was Artichoke pizza and a dumpling shop. We went back to both places several times after our tour . Our tour leader was Dante and he was the best. Dante provided us a with great stories about NYC and the restaurants we visited. Both tours were so much fun and also run very smoothly. pDante also went out of his way to take us on the subway after the tour to show us how to get to The Guitar Centre for my son to pick up his guitar which he had ordered online,
Would recommend this tour to anyone who has just arrived in NYC as it is a great way to explore and get a feel for the city,

“Lower east side food tour”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Today myself and 7 friends did the lower east side food tour with josh from sidewalks of new york. It was a great day. Lots of fun facts added into the tour, we all learned something new today! All of the eateries we visited were great!!! Got to visit Economy Candy talk about candy floor to ceiling, you name it they had it. Many childhood memories like candy cigarettes, big league chew, sky bar, just to name a few.... North dumpling on Essex street was amazing..... the pickle guy, Katz's deli, Yonah Schimmel Knish bakery, russ & daughter's, Goodfellows, and Donut plant were all the places we visited. brought something home from almost place we visited and will go back to all of them. We are looking forward to doing another tour in the not so distant future!!! Would highly recommend this tour company to anyone who wants to get an inside look at parts of New York, you just wouldn't visit on your own!! We are from New York and I have to admit have never been to any of the places we were at today!!!!!!! Loved it~
