    Incredibly fun experience for all ages. Our guide made sure the tour was fun, educational, and, of course, delicious! As out of towners we learned about areas of the city we had yet to visit. The tour was suggested by a local New Yorker who found it equally as fun.

    This is more than just a cupcake tour. Lots of interesting informative facts about New York as well. This aspect may not interest the younger set. As well, be on notice that we put on 8,500 steps in two hours. Quite strenuous! Our guide, Justin, was interesting, knowledgeable and amusing.

    Mallory was awesome! She was very knowledgeable, very friendly and engaged with the whole group. Even our 5 year old was engaged and had a fantastic time. Yes, the cupcakes were all great, but the experience as a whole was without doubt one of the best food tours we have ever participated in.
