Manhattan: 3-Hour Food and History Tour With a Local Guide
- Duration: 3 hours
Our guide, Bruce, was a travel writer and Manhattan native, so he knew a lot of interesting Manhattan history and present day hot spots. We really enjoyed his tour and his energy. As for food, some of us showed up quite hungry, but we didn’t stop to eat anything until about an hour into the tour. According to the tour description in GYG, we we supposed to start out with some kind of pastry for breakfast. Nevertheless, the food we did have was tasty, and the venues were interesting!
Josh is a ‘sparkling’ nice guide and told us a lot about the history of downtown Manhattan. He knows very much about New York and he is able to walk, guide, tell stories and to keep our attention during the whole tour. We liked the combination of walking (with 7 persons), listening to Josh and tasting food in the different parts of downtown Manhattan. We enjoyed the tour very much!
Our guide Mary Hannah was absolutely delightful. Not only was she was incredibly knowledgeable about the areas we visited, but despite a rough start with people being late, she was able to handle it with grace and humor. I would highly recommend Mary Hannah and Urban Adventures. I definitely plan on using them again for future food tours in other cities.
This was a fascinating start to my first visit to New York, I would thoroughly recommend it even if you’ve visited before, I guarantee you will learn something new! The guide was so knowledgeable and really made an effort to give us a huge amount of information.
Alex did a good job walking us through history and the immigration waves of the city. The food was all very good and we enjoyed each of the different neighborhoods. Thank you!
