Flatiron FOOD (plenty) Architecture and History! April 2023

Having worked in the City years ago, it felt strange to book a tour of a city I thought I knew pretty well. But the Flatiron District is a part I didn't really know well ... until now! Our guide's knowledge of the history of the area was amazing, and the architecture in the neighborhood is so diverse and photo worthy! And the food on the tour was a really nice sample of the neighborhood cuisine, more than I could eat!

Flatiron District of Manhattan April 2023

Justin led a marvelous tour educating us on the history of the area, the buildings/architecture and the businesses. Along with this we had splendid food at various stops, that once again Justin explained in detail. This tour was positively wonderful and I would certainly book another one with LIKEALOCALTOURS.
