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!
I absolutely loved the tour I went on. Nancy was lots of fun and very knowledgeable of both Central Park and the Hells Kitchen area. She selected great restaurants, all of which I would return to for a full meal. The food was great and I love going to family owned restaurants! Having an insider view of Central Park was amazing. I would definitely recommend this tour and our amazing tour guide, Nancy.
Great food tour with a brilliant guide, Nancy. The restaurants and cafes we visited were off the beaten tourist track but the food was really good. Nancy was a knowledgable guide who constantly made sure all of us tourists were good in the heat. Her commentary made the day, highly recommended.
Ms Nancy was very knowledgeable and showed her love for the area on our tour. She paid attention to everyone in the group and had rain ponchos in her bag. Our private tour of Central Park was awesome.
Fantastic tour!! Billy was amazing, extremely friendly, knowledgeable and a fantastic tour guide. The places he took us to eat were incredible and we would have never found them had he not shown us. While walking he also pointed out other places to vist all while giving us the history about the area we were walking through. To round off the afternoon he took us on a wonderful factual tour around Central Park. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic afternoon!
I have lived in New York for 34 years and thought I knew everything about New York until I took this food tour. I took my family on the Hell’s Kitchen and Central Park tour with Anna Belle. Let me start by saying Anna Belle was the best. I have gone on numerous food tours in other states and no one compares to her. She was kind and knowledgeable and engaging. Her knowledge of numerous topics and desire to give you the best tour possible was evident. I would highly suggest recommending her as your tour guide. And now to the most important part the food...every restaurant we went to was fantastic. On our way home my family and I tried to pick out our favorite food and we were all deadlocked. Between the different cultures and entrees everything was incredible. Furthermore our tour of Central Park was delightful and educational after hours of eating. I would recommend this tour to anyone whether you’re a native New Yorker or a tourist. From,Luba “the liberal”
