Kate was funny and friendly. Loved her drink suggestions and truffle fries were delicious at Lily’s. Thanks for Heather’s BDay cake!

Ryan was an amazing guide for this fun and informative tour! He lead us through the rich history and told interesting (and surprising!) stories of the prohibition era. Ryan's drink recommendations at each bar were top-notch, and he tailored them to each person's individual preferences and tastes. We also enjoyed meeting and spending time with the other tour participants. The small group size created a personalized experience, which gave us plenty of time to ask questions and soak in the atmosphere at each stop. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the prohibition/speak easy era and enjoys a good drink (or three!). Kudos to Ryan and Telltale Tours for providing such a great experience.
Excellent tour!

Kate was a great guide and we had a great time. In fact we wished we had done the tour at the start of our trip to New York as we visited 3 great venues that we would have liked to have returned to during our stay.
Such a cool tour!

Kate was wonderful. This is such a cool tour. She takes you to all the speak easy places that you wouldn't even know existed. They're all beautiful inside, different and the mixologists are just unbelievable. The drinks are creative and delicious and after a few of them, made me want to become a mixologist! She was funny, took her time with us and it was just a real pleasant experience. I would highly recommend it.
