New York: 5-Hour Sightseeing Walking Tour with Food Tastings
- Duration: 5 hours
Our guide, Bruce, was a travel writer and Manhattan native, so he knew a lot of interesting Manhattan history and present day hot spots. We really enjoyed his tour and his energy. As for food, some of us showed up quite hungry, but we didn’t stop to eat anything until about an hour into the tour. According to the tour description in GYG, we we supposed to start out with some kind of pastry for breakfast. Nevertheless, the food we did have was tasty, and the venues were interesting!
Superb 2 hours, so interesting ! Had so many points of interest, landmarks, historical sites pointed out and explained to us from hundreds of years ago to present day. We also had the chance to stop briefly and grab a foodie snack / souvenier in Little Italy, I knew nothing about any of these 3 areas until the tour and found them so fascinating, the very next day revisited 2 / 3 of them! Its a must do tour ! Our tour guide Remy was superb !
Very informative and enjoyable tour. We loved our tour guide who was a local who grew up right there and had lots of stories and good intel about the area and the history. He provided great restaurant recommendations and we got a little taste of Chinatown on the tour! it was really fun and we met some other great folks on the tour. Truly one of the best tours I have done in New York.
Our guide (Max) was well informed and entertaining . He peppered the conversation with trivia. The rhythm was good and a short break in little Italy allowed us to sample wonderful sweets. I learned a lot on Soho despite knowing New York quite well. The neighborhoods were perfect for a two hour walk. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fun and informative tour with our guide (Andrew) offering a vast amount of knowledge on how these communities were formed, as well as how historic events helped shape them into what they are today. He showed us several points of interest and simply had an upbeat and fun personality, which only added to the experience.
