Very enjoyable. Great way to get a taste of one of Manhatten's neighborhoods, whether you are a tourist or a local. Our guide shared many wonderful stories about the history of various sites and we learned so much that was very fascinating!

Loved the whole feel of this tour. The old versus the new cuisine - the authentic stores and the quality of the food was excellent. Matt was extremely easy going very knowledgeable and I definitely would recommend taking this tour if you have never visited the Lower East side - even if you live here in NYC :))

We had a great tour! It was cool to learn the history of the Lower East Side and the food was delicious. Our guide was knowledgeable and did a wonderful job being prepared with plates, silverware, napkins etc. he got us in and out of even the busier spots.

We had the best time! We're New Yorkers but got this tour as a wedding gift. It was a great way to spend an afternoon getting to know the neighborhood!

My husband and I had a great time on the Pizza, Beer and History tour. We got the tour as a wedding gift and we're so glad we did! We live in NYC and Adam, our awesome guide, still had tons of facts and info that we'd never heard before. And of course the pizza was delicious! Highly recommend whether you live in NYC or are visiting.

I just got back from taking a tour and I can't wait to take my next one! I had so much fun and our guide was fantastic. And the food- it was so good! I highly recommend checking out one of these tours!

It was a great way to get introduced to a number of restaurants that we otherwise might never have happened into. Some of the best falafel, great Cuban food, and fun customizing cupcakes.

My boyfriend and I did the Lower East Side Tour with Matt and it was great! Matt knew so much history and really made the tour fun. The places we went were awesome too. I can't wait to do our Food Truck Tour in December.
