Dessert Walking Tour in New York City: Cupcakes, Cookies, and Gelato

Cupcakes on the tour

After meeting your guide at Union Square, set off to sample some treats in Lower Manhattan. Head immediately to Baked by Melissa, where you'll try some of the shop's bite-size signature tie-dye cupcakes, the peanut butter and jelly cupcake, or even the cookie dough cupcake. 

Then move on to Crumb's Bake Shop, which boasts a selection of up to 50 different types of cupcakes, including cookies 'n' cream and brownie flavors. Afterward, it's on to Amorino, a corner dessert spot that serves up gelato, milkshakes, and freshly baked waffles.

Stroll over to Molly's Cupcakes next on Bleecker Street. Here you can customize your own: pick a flavor and then a frosting and you've got your very own combo. The penultimate stop is at Milk & Cookies, located on a quaint West Village street.

And finally, no dessert tour would be complete without a stop at Magnolia Bakery, made famous by the TV show Sex and the City. After sampling sweets here, your tour will conclude.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

You would not want to miss this tour. Be ready to indulge in all the sweet goodies that came with the tour. Our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable. She brought us to Bisous, Ciao luxurious and chic French macarons, Magnolia bakery, Molly's Baker, Gelato New York, Milk and Cookies Bakery and Baked by Melissa. My favorite was Bisous, Ciao. The macarons are fluffy in texture but dense in flavor and the balance of the cream and the cookie is excellent.

I have my 10 year old son who was overly ecstatic eating so much dessert for lunch. Our tour started at 12 p.m and ended about 2.00. So if you have kids with you, make sure they are comfortable walking around for 2 hours.

The meeting point is slightly vague, but you'll be okay if you take the subway and get off at the Union Square station.

In all, we extremely enjoyed the tour. We would not think about visiting these bakeries ourselves if we didn't reserve it with Viator.

Mallory gave us a fantastic tour of iconic and delicious NYC desserts. It was also a great way to see unique, less touristy neighborhoods. This is a must do!

We had a great tour guide (Jessie) and a tour group consisting of 16 people in total. The delicious cupcakes of various sizes and gelato sampled filled our tummies up to the point where we didn't need to have lunch that day!
