“Tenements Tour”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

My best friend and I were in New York for a week for my 50th birthday, I had seen the Tenements & Tasting Tour on Trailfinders website & thought this would be a great tour to take to see the coulture of New York. We both really enjoyed this tour, Olivia & Nikki were excelent tour guides. Full of imformation & easy to talk to, the food we sampled on the tour was great, enjoyed every mouthful.

I would love to do another tour with them. Thank you so much for a great time and helping me to celebrate my birthday.

“The best part of my trip!! Take this Tour!!!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We bought a City Pass and partook of the Tenements, Tales and Tastes Tour of New York City. Our guide was Karen Brueckner. It was absolutely wonderful. We were told tales of New York we would have never know. You need to wear comfortable clothing and good tennis shoes. She set a very walkable pace for us all. The tastes were superb and quite filled us up!! She even had a pop quiz at the end and gave out prizes. She showed us sites we would have not seen and told wonderful stories. Just Great!!!!

“Take this tour!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We booked the Tenements, Tales and Tastes tour and wholeheartedly recommend it. We were shown and told about a side of NYC we would have never heard about on our own. Our guide was friendly, funny and so knowledgeable. A great way to spend the day.

“thanks Nathalie!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We began our 10 days tour in ny with Nathalie. She gave us the necessary historical information to understand new yorkers and the mentality of americans. Full with anecdotes and humour but also with food fingertips... a must!

“Excellent walking tour of Lower East Side”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Our guide was Nathalie, she was excellent - very professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It rained throughout the tour, but we barely noticed it as Nathalie kept us interested in the tales of the various ethnic groups who immigrated to New York's Lower East Side and introduced us to their foods. A delicious and interesting way to see another side to New York.
