Loved it! - I thoroughly enjoyed this food tour! Heather was amazing with her knowledge of NYC and very responsive before we met up. I am a native NYer and it was great learning about my city and its history. I am 31 weeks pregnant and worried about the walk and bathroom breaks, but the walk was totally fine and she was sensitive to my needs for restroom breaks. The 15 year old I went with also enjoyed herself and she wants to go again! Highly recommend!

Delectable delights filled with history! - I went on this tour with my nieces, mostly because they were visiting NYC and they really wanted to go...it exceeded all expectations! Ari our guide was super knowledgeable on Lower East Side history from Basquiat's original studio to historic Jewish theatre district to a mosaic artist and the original Second Avenue Deli location- so much interesting history that this 15 year NYC resident had never known. The donuts were also incredible- a wonderful variety from traditional to exquisite. I highly recommend this tour for the learnings, the delectable delights, walking in an historic NYC neighborhood with so much to discover and experience and for the knowledgeable and friendly tour guide- top notch- book it now!
