Our tour guide, Emily, was absolutely fantastic. She made the experience of learning the history and visiting the sites worthwhile. We had a total blast, each location was unique and exciting. I have already recommended this to everyone I know! 10/10 for sure
Feel like a true New York insider during this secretive boozy tour that visits three of Midtown Manhattan’s most historic watering holes with an in-the-know guide. ‘Sneak’ into the bar of a Prohibition-era speakeasy (we can’t reveal the location online), plus take in a Victorian-era bar and a fun local beer garden, enjoying an included libation at one of the locations.
Loveddd the tour and the tour guide, she made it so much fun. I learned a lot and the people who joined me on the tour were great company as well. We got a good amount of wine and food, the tour guide really gave me the full experience in a short amount of time.

Great walking tour of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. We really enjoyed wandering through the Chelsea Market with delicious stops for savory and sweet treats. Ended the tour with a terrific walk along the High Line from Chelsea Market to Battery Park, an amazing tour from classic to ultra-modern New York. Sofia was interesting and knowledgeable. Recommend highly.
The High Line, Chelsea Market, and Meatpacking District are three of New York’s hippest and foodie-focused spots; but exploring them is best with a guide for navigation and insider tips. This small-group tour takes you straight to their best spots and offerings. Roam the elevated High Line park, savor artisanal specialities at Chelsea Market, and discover the architecture and food haunts of the Meatpacking District, once home to NYC’s slaughterhouses.
My husband and I like to schedule a walking tour in a different part of NYC whenever we visit. We've done 3 now and this is by far the best one! Brian, our guide from Urban Adventures was just terrific. He really knew his subject matter and made it so interesting. Also, the food stops were just delicious. I will definitely schedule with this company again! Just terrific!
Our tour was hosted by Astrid (Ace) of nycurbanadventures.com who was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. The tour area of the Lower East Side encompassed mainly China Town and Little Italy although the foods provided also included Jewish and German fare. All the tasters were very good, particularly the Chinese potstickers. The other members of our tour were from various countries /locations and all mixed well. Ace ensured that she kept everyone involved and spoke on a one-to-one with everyone at some point. An excellent introduction to New York.

New York Secret Food Tour of Historic Greenwich Village
, Dec 2019
For the extra $ paid I feel this tour was not as good as the one I did in the past with another company that was cheaper. ( I have done numerous tours and in different cities) Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I felt it would have been better if she didn't walk so fast so that the group wasn't so spead out. The food was ok. The "secret" was a different place to eat. Not what I expected for the extra $.

From pastrami that melts in your mouth to pickles that will make you pucker ... this tour offered a wide variety of foods and a real taste of NYC’s history. Dante was excellent. Tour was a great value. No one left hungry.
Dante was a great host. Very welcoming and happy for the group to take it's time and snap plenty of photos. He engages with everyone and knows a great deal about the area. Plenty of food, start with an appetite and you'll finish full! Cheers
This was my second tour with Dante. I previously did the Greewich village one 3years ago, so when I came back on this trip I knew I had to try out the LES tour and I wasn't disappointed. We had 9 stops with a tasting at each place and not too much walking in between. There was no pressure to buy anything but the peach balsamic vinegar was too good not to get, plus some candy treats! I even went back to the bakery to get an everything bagel for my journey to Boston!
Dante is an awesome guide. He is friendly and knowledgeable and makes sure that everyone is ok along the way. I can highly recommend doing this tour and hope to do one of Dante's tours again on my next visit from london!

Intimate Hell's Kitchen and Central Park Walking Tour
, Sep 2019
This excursion is a wonderful history and food experience for Hell's Kitchen and New York in general. Our tour guide, Annabel, was a pure delight. She was personal, professional and a plethora of knowledge on New York's history, culture and ongoing changes. The trip included 5 tastings from different restaurants residing in Hell's Kitchen. Each represented a different country that has found it's home in the bustling city. The tour was well-paced and is definitely a tour for individuals with better mobility. Beautiful tour, beautiful guide and great food and scenery. Would do it again in a heart beat!

Fantastic food - and fascinating historical - tour of Grand Central Terminal!
, Feb 2020
We (13yo daughter and I) had a wonderful tour with Annabel this weekend! We were her only two guests. We began outside Grand Central and learned its history (the history and contextual lessons continued throughout our tour). The tour was more background (and fascinating facts) than we expected but we left with a greater appreciation of Grand Central Terminal! We lingered over the last sit-down course at GC Oyster Bar a little longer than planned, so the last two food "bites" were given to us to go - our tour ran 2.5 hours. I highly recommend Annabel and the stops she showed us - and the inside tips about the building! She even texted us afterwards to offer any tips about present/future trips to NYC (things to do on a 2, 3, 4 day trip, etc) as she runs many tours around the city. Wonderful experience!
My sister and I had an exceptional tour guide in Kevin. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Grand Central Station and had some wonderful photos of days gone by. We would highly recommend this tour be added to anyone's outing in New York!
Many visitors don’t know that Grand Central Station is a foodie’s paradise, but it is. During this Grand Central Station indoor food tour, a guide shows you the way to hidden gems and architectural highlights on your way to a series of gourmet stops. Sample New York City treats as you taste your way through on the of the world’s largest train terminals.
This was our favorite tour of this trip, and well worth it. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable and the tour itself was filled with plenty of insight and history. The food was great, and we're still talking about some of our samples weeks later. This was a great way to see the area, taste some great food, and give us an idea of where to go next time. I can't recommend this tour enough, and even though it was pretty cold there wasn't too much walking or difficulty keeping up. A great tour.
We did this walking tour yesterday and loved every minute of it. Our guide MaryAnne was so knowledgeable and passionate it was a pleasure to listen to every word she said. Such an insightful and delicious 3 hours you should definitely do it!
Tuck into the flavors and traditions of two of New York's top foodie neighborhoods on this Chinatown and Little Italy food tour. While exploring these neighborhoods can be overwhelming on your own, traveling with a guide enables you to focus on the food rather than worrying about getting lost. Plus, the guide takes you to off-the-beaten-path establishments where you can sample items such as homemade mozzarella and dim sum.
Tour was great - interesting, well-paced and delicious, hearty portions of food samplings. Our tour guide, Justin, was terrific. He provided a wealth of Flatiron area/NYC knowledge in a fascinating way. Thank you so much, Justin!
We had an amazing time on this tour, learned a lot and saw and learned things that you do not get by simply using Google. The food was amazing and not stops we would know to stop at. Highly recommended for anyone who likes architecture and food! Definitely a highlight thus far
See two of New York City’s most iconic and picturesque neighborhoods, Flatiron and Union Square, on this food, architecture, and history walking tour. Try tastings at some of the most unique food stops in the city. Visit Caffe Lavazza at Eataly Market, an epic artisanal Italian food emporium. Also, enjoy a classic New York pastrami sandwich from a historic spot and try Big Apple’s best grilled cheese sandwich.
When you think food tour you think a lot of food serving maybe buffers and large plates..this tour was okay but it wasn’t what we expected. The host was great she was friendly and nice and however the food served was limited portions...if you are looking for a belly full and lots of food don’t choose this trip you might as well go on your own and tour around Hell’s Kitchen
Experience some of the hidden gems of Hell's Kitchen you’d miss if exploring on your own during this walking food tour of the neighborhood. Listen to your guide's historic and cultural commentary on the famous neighborhood while walking its streets and tasting some of the city's best ethnic food with a small group of up to eight people.
We were lucky to have a small group...Rick was a great guide, giving us lots of information on the neighborhoods we passed. The food at each stop was tasty and filling, with opportunities to purchase beverages (or extra treats at the bakery!). We had a lovely day to walk across the bridge back into Manhattan. We’ll definitely visit Brooklyn again!
Take a bite out of New York City’s hippest borough on this half-day Brooklyn food and culture tour.

Set off with just a small group for company, and head to storied craft-beer bars, destination-worthy speakeasies, and other locals-frequented venues. As you go, soak up the neighborhood ambiance, enjoy several complimentary beers, and learn more about the city’s brewing scene.
The tour didn't get off to the best of starts as Alex's Tours hadn't conveyed the booking to the guide, who was consequently 40 minutes late. Then the first establishment was shut. Thankfully Sam was a great tour guide and we still had an awesome night.
This tour took us to some really cool places. Alex was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. My only real complaint was that we signed up for the West Village but were automatically booked to the Lower East Side without telling us. I had to inquire and I learned that there were not enough people for the West Village and also there was a good chance that a venue might be privately booked which would ruin the tour. Totally understandable reason but I'm glad I inquired otherwise I might have been very confused.
My only other advice is for Alex to give the group a little bit of time on our own in each venue. He had amazing knowledge about all things prohibition but it was nonstop and we didn't really have time to relax and enjoy the venue and the mood of the locations.
Step into the shoes of a Roaring Twenties scofflaw on this cocktail tour of Manhattan’s best and most secretive speakeasies.

Plus, this tour runs with only eight people most, so you get personalized attention from your guide.
This was an experience of a life time from the moment we boarded the boat to the end of the cruise. As a V.I.P. Guest we were seated by the huge glass window with a Clear full view Of all the sights all cozie and warm which was brilliant as it was below freezing outside.The service, the food, the sights and most of all the time we spent around the Statue of Liberty was amazing. I would Highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to New York.
Forget trying to snag a hard-to-get reservation at New York's hottest restaurants du jour.

Interesting facts, but not much food. On other walking tours I have left feeling as though I had a meal. Left hungry after this one
Very personable and eager to answer questions. Assisted us to our subway station

While prohibition made alcohol illegal in 1920s New York, the city still retained an illicit bar scene. This prohibition-themed Manhattan tour visits some of the city’s self-styled “speakeasies”—cocktail dens and taverns that mimic the era’s outlawed bars—to enjoy drinks (own cost) with a dose of history—an experience hard to replicate independently. See prohibition-period sights, and savor each bar's atmosphere alongside prohibition and bootlegger stories from your guide.
Boozy Brooklyn: A Sunday Funday Food and Drinks Tour
A bit overpacked, but enjoyable
, Jan 2020
With eight stops, the tour may pack in a bit much for the allotted time, but each destination offers something unique in a showcase of Brooklyn’s beer and foodie scene. I would recommend the tour to friends.
I just moved about an hour away from NYC and wanted to find something to do on weekends. After running a bit late because of subway construction, I made it to the first stop, Brooklyn Brewery. There I met the tour guide and four tourists. Josh, the guide, was so welcoming and knowledgeable. He got me a beer and gave us cool factoids about the brewery. Next we went to Mabel’s Smokehouse for bbq tasting (veggie optional) and mezcal margaritas. Delicious! Next we did hotsauce tasting then ice cream with unique flavors. Because we were fast walkers, Josh took us to a candy shop which had the best cookies I’ve ever had. We ended at Teddy’s the first bar in Brooklyn. We had two beers there and chilled at Josh gave us more history of the bar and neighborhood. It was a relaxing tour with just the right amount of alcohol that you felt it but could continue your evening. Josh was great!

We had a great tour of the High Line and Greenwich Village with Nancy, our tour guide. She was very knowledge, friendly and professional.
