It was a fabulous experience! The tour guide was fun and knowledgeable! The treats were divine. I am waiting anxiously for my next tour.
I just loved this tour! I'm from Hawaii and we have a few cupcake places but no where close to how good new yorks cupcakes were! It was a bit much at the end because there's so muh sweets (and I'm a huge sweets eater) but everything was so good I had to eat everything! You must go on this tour!!
I loved it. Everything was delicious! Our guid was awesome and we did a lot of trip via along the way! I would do it again! I do believe there is alit more walking then it claims so wear comfortable shoes!
Loved the tour. Jesse was a great guide. Will order cupcakes for my next party from one of the shops we visited! Saw areas of the city I would not have otherwise. Will definitely book another tour when I get a chane to visit the city again.
We had a great tour guide and was very good at telling us the history of the places we went to. The cupcakes we got to taste were amazing. Would do this again
The tour was fabulous! Mallory was a great guide and managed to keep 8 14 year old girls happy and interested. The cupcakes were wonderful - but the gelato was out of this world!
It was a delicious rxperience! Our tour guide was knowledgeable with right amount if humor infused during the trip!! Would do it again and have told all my friends about it!
I was a little sceptical at being 'dragged' along on this tour but was totally mistaken and I thoroughly enjoyed a great afternoon of walking, talking, tasting and sightseeing. Mallory was our guide and she was fantastic. Unending enthusiasm, great local knowledge and always ready for a chat, Mallory was the special ingredient that made the cupcake tour extra special....but, oh man, those gags need improving! Highly recommend the tour and will likely do it again when next in NYC.
Great tour and absolutely awesome cupcakes! A must for any sweet tooth.
This tour was wonderful! I've never eaten so much on a walking tour. We had so many stops that by the time we got to Magnolia I was unable to eat my cupcake and had to take it with me. Jessie was a great tour guide, knew a lot of history and was very helpful. A++++ in my opinion and would do it again!!!!
The tour itself was fab, the beginning was a bit of a nightmare.
We missed the start of the tour by a couple of minutes, only made worse by the gentleman on the phone who advised the tour leader was running late and would be there soon, but the tour had actually left without us. So we waited and waited with no sign, calling the office several times to be advised the tour leader was running late. Finally we were told the tour had left without us and we were told a couple of the places along the tour, the group may be to try and catch up with them. Well half a tour is better than no tour. We managed to salvage half the tour. The lady (sorry i can not remember her name) who lead the tour was very knowledgeable about the surroundings as well as the bakeries themselves. I loved the jokes and the little competitions she ran through out, a lovely touch! The lady also arranged for my friend and I to have two mini cupcakes at Mollys Cupcakes instead of just one, to make up for the ones we missed - this was not expected but very much appreciated. All in all a great tour, but it was a shame we were given misleading information by the office and this is why i am giving 4 not 5 stars.
If you are looking for something a little different to do, this is it. I enjoyed touring Greenwich which was a great neighbour to visit. Molly's was my favorite stop. Although I am a huge gelato fan didn't love the mango gelato, but otherwise everything else was great, including our tour guide Mallory!!
Fun and different. Our guide Mallory (hope I have the right spelling!) was very nice and knowledgeable. It was fun to discover a new neighbourhood. The only downsides:
-our group was too big. It was sometimes difficult to hear everything Mallory had to say and we often had to wait.
-I did a few food tours in Europe over the years. Most of them were less expensive and the portions were more generous.
But over all I would definitely recommend if you would like to do something different while in the city.
