My tour guide Eric was so knowledgeable not just on the places he took our group but was able to answer 90% of our questions without hesitation about many of the random things we found during our tour.

This was an excellent way to be introduced to the history and culture of different communities in NYC. Highly recommend if you've never been to NYC before or just enjoy eating different cuisines!

Other than not being able to take the Empire State Building tour, technical difficulties on site booking, everything was very well done. Still waiting on my refund for that portion of my event

Great walking tour that enhanced my understanding of an early immigrant moving to New York City. Experienced Jewish, Chinese, italian and German food.

Love the idea of being able to hop on and off. Enjoyed it very much
