Do I have to purchase tour tickets in advance?
Booking in advance is required. Our tour guides do not accept cash on site for tickets.

Our Flatiron Food Tour is the least walking (1 mile), followed by Fifth Avenue Walking Tour (1.5 miles), Chelsea Market & High Line Food Tour (1.5 miles) and Williamsburg Food Tour (2 miles).

Tours will run rain, snow or shine. We ask that you check the weather forecast and dress accordingly if inclement weather is predicted.

Our public tours are conducted in English but our guides speak Spanish, Italian and French. If you need a tour in another language, please contact us and let us know.
Will locals enjoy the tours as well or is it mostly for tourists?
Absolutely! While you may be familiar with our route and some of the stops, you will also have the opportunity to discover new things about the wonderful neighborhood you live in! Additionally, this tour is an excellent way to entertain out-of-town guests, celebrate a special occasion or encourage professional team building.
