Great tour July 2021

Lovely tour. Our guide Justin was knowledgeable and friendly, the tastings were good, and we learned a lot about a part of the city that there aren't many tours of.

Perfect mix of food and history July 2021

Justin was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable. Great food stops with all the NY flair. There is a good bit of walking involved but the tour was well designed with frequent stopping points.

Fun Tour June 2021

My boyfriend enjoyed the history a lot. This food was pretty good as well. Kind of nice that we got a private tour since no one else signed up (they recently reopened since covid)

Very interesting and tasty - the perfect combo June 2021

This is a great tour! Justin knows a lot of history about the area, the buildings and the food. He also shows historical photos on his iPad for comparison and knows a lot of fun facts as well. The food stops were both interesting and delicious. Our teenage boys enjoyed the tour as much as we did. We highly recommend this tour!

Great story about an interesting part of town September 2022

If you are interested in the history of the flatiron area while having a lot of great food and drinks then this is the tour for you. The tour operator is an enthusiastic historian and a genuine lover of the area. The pacing was perfect with bathroom breaks and the food choices were varied and delicious. Much more informative than we would have thought and the stories were very well told, with great visual aids as well. The history is much more than the flatiron area, it is all of New York. Well done!!
