How was your experience?
As pretty adventurous & independent travelers, we felt this tour was perfect for our style--new sights & exotic foods but with a "local's" perspective & experience! Alana, our guide & the owner of the company, made it both interesting & fun for the small group on this tour. I particularly enjoyed her enthusiasm & keen interest in the history, culture, and food in these areas; my teen was pleased that there was plenty of food to sample at the end of each short walk through the authentic neighborhoods. We look forward to going on the other culinary walks offered by this company (Ahoy New York Tours & Tasting) on future visits to NYC. I would recommend, though, that you join one of these tours at the start of your visit, as we came away with terrific recommendations for where to dine in all price ranges (great pizza, great gelato, great restaurants in the Theater District, East Village, etc) that we wished we had earlier in our trip.
