Food Tours

Be sure to consider one of our pay-what-you-wish New York City food tours.  With our competitors charging anywhere from $45-$65 for their food tours, a food tour experience is often out of reach for most travelers.  There is so much good food at affordable prices, there’s no need to be forced to pay so much money.  Our two most popular guided tour options are our Greenwich Village Food Tour and our Lower East Side Food Tour.  We also offer free self-guided food tours, so that you can experience the flavors of the city on your own pace.

Bike Tours

The same goes for sightseeing in New York on bike.  Some hotels offer complimentary bikes.  Some guests have their own bikes or rent them through a tourist pass.  We offer an affordable option for all visitors to New York City.  You can rent a bike through us for less than it will cost through a bike shop.  We offer two bike tours, one of Central Park and one of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.  Check out our New York bike tours.
