“Chocolate Tour”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

My fiance and I went on a Chocolate Tour today and it was wonderful! Alex was our tour guide and he was terrific. He knew a ton of New York history (and a tremendous amount of related history, as well). He also spent a lot of time with our group and ours ran 40 minutes longer than the allotted 2 hours, which seemed to be fine with all 21 of us. Each location was interesting and fun. We were also lucky to have a really beautiful day and a really nice group of people. Alex was just the best!

“Delicious and Fun Chocolate Tour with Alex”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Highly recommend the Chocolate Tour. Alex was a great guide - knowledgeable and entertaining - and even my New Yorker daughter learned some things.

“Fantastic tour guide - Alex!!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We took the Chocolate Tour on a beautiful spring day and what made it so great was the tour guide, Alex. The stops along the way weren't so fantastic, but his commentary on the history of New York City and it's various neighborhoods, architecture and art was incredible. Alex was congenial and extremely knowledgeable. While the chocolate sampling was delicious and we made some stops at some bakeries, too, we expected to see some chocolate making in action or learn from the chocolatiers about their various businesses. Instead, we were given samples and then offered a 10% discount at most places to make purchases. I would recommend the tour only if you could guarantee that Alex is your guide!

“Waist of Time”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I was visiting my friend in the city and we found a Groupon for the ghost tour. The directions said to meet at Washington Square Park at 6:45pm for the 7pm tour. By 7:15pm when no tour guide had showed up we called the office to make sure we had the right place and time. The British guy (he never gave us a name) was very rude and told us our guide was delayed but getting off the subway and walking our way. At 7:30pm we saw a guy dressed in Victorian costume and a lantern waiting under the arch. He turned out to be another guide from a different company who was thirty minutes early for his tour (New York Ghost Tours, my tip is to use them). We called the office again at 7:45pm and again were told the guide had just gotten off the subway and was walking our way. He finally shows up a little after 8pm and tells us he was called at 7:15 pm and asked to come do the tour. The guide was nice, but this WAS NOT a ghost tour. It was more of a random facts off the top of his head tour. The only ghost story I remember was read off of his cell phone. We all received free tours of our choice in the future, but after this experience I will never use Great New York Tours again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and we're very sorry about what happened. Our guide was delayed, and we were unfortunately unable to get a replacement guide to the location by 7 pm.

We would be delighted to show you a proper tour in the future, and we thank you again for your feedback.

“Amazing Cupcake Tour”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We went on the Cupcake walking tour with Mallory as our guide and had an amazing time. All the cupcakes we tasted were delicious and the gelato was the best I have ever eaten. Mallory was fun & gave us lots of information about cupcakes, New York and the places we visited. I loved that the walk wasn't too far and that we got a treat at each stop. I would recommend to anyone who loves cupcakes!
