Cocktails in Manhattan

We loved the tour and Ryan was a great wealth of knowledge. We loved seeing the places to go and having their unique cocktails. My favourite was the “Fearless Agent” - Ketel vodka, strawberries, Balsamic vinegar, cracked white peppercorn served with a Parmesan shard. Different & definitely outside my comfort zone but loved it. Drinks were a bit pricey, but our Aussie $ is crap at the moment.
Speakeasy tour

Our guide Rory brought the history of this period alive with enthusiasm, fun and involvement! Can’t speak highly enough of her friendliness and interaction.

Awesome tour! Tim was a very entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide. We visited 3 SpeakEasys. The group ranged from ages 20 something to 60 something and all ages had a great time mixing and sharing stories. A fun way to meet new people and spend a Saturday night!
A fun night of Discovery

Even though we live here, this was a fantastic evening out! Rori was a great guide, equipped with tons of fascinating information about the history of prohibition and the ways in which New Yorkers adapted the city's nightlife to the social changes of Prohibition. All of the bars we visited boasted stunning interiors; a true feast for the eyes!
Rori's drink recommendations were pitch-perfect and delicious! It was great to discover new places that we would like to return to.
Very fun tour

We recently did the Speakeasy tour in NYC. It was a nice event to do and we really enjoyed the bars. Two comments were that for the price I felt you should get at least one cocktail - which they do not do. You get a small shot of a cordial or something - not great. My second comment is that the Tori guide Rori was wonderful - but she walked too fast for the group to keep up. So one comment would be to slow things down a bit according to the audience needs. Thanks and overall was a very cool experience.
