Perfect start for sight seeing downtown Manhattan!

Josh is a ‘sparkling’ nice guide and told us a lot about the history of downtown Manhattan. He knows very much about New York and he is able to walk, guide, tell stories and to keep our attention during the whole tour. We liked the combination of walking (with 7 persons), listening to Josh and tasting food in the different parts of downtown Manhattan. We enjoyed the tour very much!

It was a lovely relaxed tour with a knowledgable guide

The boat itself was really nice and comfortable. The staff on the boat were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. Our guide was vknowlegable and informative. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely. It was difficult to hear the the guide at times which was a little frustrating because we didn’t want to miss a word but I would definitely recommend this tour!

Astrid knows the Lower-East side and has tons of tales to share.

We book that tour (Lower-East side "food and tales") because we have 2 teenagers (they love to eat). The whole family enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Astrid, was amazing. We were never bored for sure thanks to her enthusiasm and her knowledge. I highly recommend the tour for families with teenagers (or old enough kids as we walked for 3.5 hours).

Very engaging and thought-provoking walking tour

Interesting tour of the East Village and Alphabet City and an insight into the lives and lifestyle of some of the icons who lived there in the 1970s and 80s, ending at the CBGBs building, which is now a store stocking clothing and with an interior design that pays homage to the building's rock n' roll history.

Amazing learning opportunity in a fun setting!

Olivia was the best tour guide we’ve experienced in NYC! She was funny, genuinely caring, and extremely knowledgeable about all the areas the tour covered. She will go far in life. Her people skills are unbelievable!
