NOHO, Little Italy, Nolita, St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, the Tenement Museum, City Hall Park. Chinatown’s downtown location is great place to catch your NYC subway ride.

Maria L.: Food Coma in 10,000 steps. Billy’s enthusiasm for history and great food combined with his humor made for a fantastic tour! He obviously likes what he does.
Freek H.: Hell’s Kitchen is Heaven! Manhattan Walking Tour is perhaps the best way to get to know Hell’s Kitchen in an afternoon. The tour took us to a number of different eateries in the area, but also told us all the great stories of the local Irish gangs of the past.
Janine D.: Like a friend showing you the sights! Just can't recommend this enough!!! We were shown around by Alex, a great personality, full of knowledge about New York and a genuinely friendly and warm person to be with. Nothing was too much trouble for him and the way he guides you is just brilliant - lots of little stories and great places.
Gail U.: Amazing. My friends and I had an amazing tour through Hell’s Kitchen and Central Park. We’ve all been to NY prior to this visit, but Nancy did a terrific job filling us with new and interesting information. Very much worth it.
Jen C.: Great Tour, even for a local. Did this tour when I visited NY from Sydney with a friend who lived in NY. Our guide Annabel was very knowledgeable about the neighbourhood as well as the food locations we visited. I found this thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and was a bonus that it ended up being only the 3 of us.
Gloria O.: Excellent Food Tour! Our personal tour guide, Nancy was fabulous! We were treated to yummy mini meals at 4 stops in "Hell's Kitchen." The food was excellent, the pace was perfect and it was fun to learn about the history of the area. Highly recommended!
K. Smith: Done all of them! I really love this tour and the guides! Been to every single one! Full of knowledge when it comes to history and food.
Josh K.: Jillian was amazing! Our tour guide, Jillian, was incredible! It was my first trip to New York City and she made it an absolutely wonderful visit! I would HIGHLY recommend her tour as the food, sights and her fun side stories were so fantastic.
Beth H.: The trip, the food, the guide - all perfect! My 14 year old granddaughter listed this as one of her favorite things to do in NYC - and we were here for four days and did a lot - so kudos for being on the top of the list! The right mix of walking (High Line Park is awesome), food, and history. Jennifer is funny, current, and informative. Highly recommend!
