Lovely tour of the lower east side

We loved our tour of the lower east side. Alexis was a great tour guide. We were running late and she waited for us and showed us all the lovely foodie spots in this area, along with explaining the history to us. Since the other couple did not show up we even got a private tour. I highly recommend this tour, if your visiting NYC. It is a great way to learn about the history of the area and to also try some new food places. Thanks for the lovely chats Alexis! We hope to visit again soon!

Christine was a delight and the lower east side food tour was a delicious and fun way to do lunch. Would highly recommend this tour to anyway wanting to learn some history of NYC while enjoying delicious treats. My favorite stop was the Chinese jerky - so delicious! The Essex market is also a really neat stop.

Tour was FABULOUS! Victoria was able to engage the kids and adults in our group, making the material accessible and interesting. She was kind and patient with our many questions. We learned about the immigrant experience and ate local delicacies.
