On this historical tour of New York, we make our way in a loop around the NYC LES, seeing 100-year old bakeries, churches, and historic sites. We stroll the streets of Little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago.

Marvel at former and still operating synagogues and Jewish clothing stores. We dive into the culture remembered at places such as the Lower East Side Tenement Museum and the African Burial Ground, and the exciting streets of Chinatown, where you feel like you’re in Shanghai!

Along the way on our New York City food tour, we sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Knishes, prosciutto, dumplings, and more. We taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to fulfill the American Dream.
