Terrific tour! I've lived in NYC for 12 years and yet I learned so much!
Went on the tour on Sunday, October 20th, 2013. Weather was PERFECT.
-- Attended with:
Went with my mom (we decided to make it a mom/daughter day)- but this tour is appropriate for all people - whether going solo, as a couple or family - it's great. Perfect for all ages.
-- Tour Leader:
Dante - super knowledgeable, very friendly and extremely prepared. Gave everyone in the group attention, answered questions, surprised me with tons of interesting tidbits about the city and the places we visited. Dante is someone who genuinely loves his job and that kind of pleasant, energetic and fun personality really made the tour special. If I go on another tour I will check to see if I can select Dante ! Great guy.
-- Stops/places visited:
Every stop was great. The food was delicious and provided in the perfect amount (lot's of sharing so you don't have to worry about exploding at the end of the three hours - which was great)
*** Note: The tour is three hours long & many of the stops along the tour do not have public restrooms - there was a bathroom at only two of the stops (Katz's and Yonah Shimmel's Knish. By the end of the third hour I left the group for 10 mins in order to search the city streets for any place like a McDonald's/restaurant/starbucks - these places are VERY hard to come by downtown (especially when you need them right away!). If I had more time, I would have checked a map prior to the tour and just made a note of public bathrooms near each of the stops...
