Mat walked us through the lower east side and sampled many foods, really too much to eat. We actually couldn't finish all that was presented to us. As with most tours I have been on being a tour guide was his day job and he was able to present us with a clear humorous outing. Well worth the money. Thanks... More

We happen to be the only two individuals for that particular morning tour of Monday 31 October 2016. It was like we had our own exclusive tour !!! My partner Julia and I were on vacation from Sydney, Australia. Yes, we have both been to NYC on many previous occasions but this particular wander around the Lower East Side was... More

I took the Lower East Side tour over the weekend and would gladly do it again! I've lived in NYC for ten years. I've spent most of that time uptown, so before the tour I was only somewhat familiar with details of the Lower East Side's history. The tour included stops at seven eateries. They ran the gamut from full... More

Great food tour on the LES. The guide was friendly, helpful, and even offered extra recommendations and advice when I mentioned that I had recently moved to the city. Overall a good way to spend a Sunday with delicious food, a pleasant walk, a friendly guide, and some history along the way.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
