This was the first walking 'tour' that I have taken in NYC, although my family and I love to walk around the city and find our own 'spots'. We come to vacation in the city every summer, so we're pretty familiar with the ins and...More

A Chocolate Tour of New York sounds like fun. The idea was to pay for the tour and then learn about chocolate in the city and places to taste it. NOT SO. The tour guide was ill informed. We spent more time waiting for members...More

Pizza tour of NYC sounded like it would be fun. It is $50 per person. We went to 4 places for pizza and got 1/2 a slice at each place. No seconds, no drinks. So I got 2 slices of pizza for $50. There were...More

Loved the tour! Although a cupcake tour we also tried sorbet and cookies. Our tour guide Mallory was great at mixing food with neighborhood knowledge. Looking forward to taking some of their other tours!

get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

If you really want to try the tour I would look for a groupon. It is absolutely not worth $50pp.
