No show and waste of valuable time

I don’t generally like reviews that aren’t of the actual product, but it feels warranted in this case. We had a confirmed and prepaid booking for this tour and he never showed up. We waited and waited at the restaurant and had no way to contact the tour guide other than emailing. And two days later I still have had no response. We had limited time in nyc and this wasted so many hours and prevented us from doing other things we would have loved to do. Completely disrespectful of our time.

unfortunately Viator has been unhelpful regarding the booking while I was hospitalized with COVID. I understand your frustration as we have been trying to clear the booking platform issues unsuccessfully. If anyone from Viator reads this response please contact us regarding the issues related to your platform. Clearly there is a problem here.

Our favorite tour in NYC- highly recommend

I like an authentic experience. This was informative, enjoyable, authentic and by far our favorite tour in NYC. Our guide was fantastic. My husband and I got there a little early so we had a chance to chat before the tour- very interesting man. He knew everyone in the restaurants we stopped, everyone we passed in little Italy and all of the history and the real stories of what went down there. Tour delivered all that was promised snd more. It’s not rehearsed or scripted.. it’s real New York history from a very unique perspective accompanied by some very good food. The time honestly flew by and we will go back again for more.. one bonus was that he used headsets so we could hear every word as we were walking. Go. You won’t regret it.

Little Italy experience. Best Ever!

This was one of the best tours that we have been on in New York city and I will be bringing others back so we experience it again. Funny, educational and delicious. New York is alive with people and happenings. We hoped to learn more about New York and although we already have our favorite restaurant in New York city, now we learned about more. Great stories about the history of crime in the city.

This was a highlight of our trip! Food samples were a 10+. The next day we went back and had dinner at John's (where the tour began) and were given 2 complimentary appetizers. Denis was fun and spent as much time as we wanted answering questions. I would recommend this tour if you enjoy getting to know a neighborhood and the people that have lived there.
