"My husband and I enjoyed ourselves taking a stroll on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Although we're locals, we don't explore much so the tour provided us some much needed exposure. Our tour guide was lovely and we had were able to have all our questions answered. We are now hooked on the doughnuts from the Doughnut Plant. THEY ARE OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! Thanks Nicole." - Karinasgc
Enjoyable way to experience NYC
"Our tour guide was Jennifer. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for this tour made the experience perfect for us. In fact, she even remembered it was our 18th wedding anniversary that day. She made time for each tour member's questions and was ready to make sure we had a perfect experience. I will use the tour company on my return trip to NYC." - Trent Bartholomew
Lots of Variety - good eats
"From donuts (the best donut I have ever eaten) to cheese (learned about European family traditions) to the most interesting butcher I have ever listened to (spoke from his heart) - this was a great food tour. The guide was a three star chef, in her own right. We were visiting from California, our daughter is a CIA Greystone grad, so this tour was great for a different view of NYC. One of our friends we were visiting lives in the Lower East Side and had never been to the six places we visited. This was one of the highlights of our 4 day trip to Manhattan." - Wescoga2
