Dante was very knowledgeable, and friendly. He made the guests feel comfortable and addressed everyone by name, minutes after the tour started.
Between the funny stories, the history of the buildings, the sampling of delicious food and the jokes he cracked, I had a great time!
I highly recommend this tour!
Awesome tour!

Included both iconic and unique locations. As a visitor to the area, sampling at these locations was a good way to learn about places that may otherwise be passed by. Adam was knowledgeable, personable, and fun.
Dante is the Nice Guy!

This was my second tour with Dante --- so that says a lot! In our group we had ages 12 to 82. Dante learned everyone's names, kept a great pace, built rapport with the group, and made the tour so much fun! The pastrami at Katz's deli was sublime. We all had our favorite stop, but each of us enjoyed the trip completely!

Dante is the Nice Guy! Everywhere we went, people in the shops greeted Dante like he was their old friend. By a few minutes into your tour, you will feel like you are old friends, too.

Our tour of the lower east side with Dante was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about the area and made the information fun and accessible to the group. We had great food from multiple places. The pastrami at Katz's Deli was amazing, the dumplings at Vanessa's were perfect, the bagels at Kossar's were quintessential NY. I highly recommend this tour and in particular, this tour company.
