Overview
From Eastern European immigrants to punk rockers, the story of the Lower East Side is as diverse and exciting as its plentiful cuisine. On this leisurely foodie walking tour of the neighborhood, uncover history through food as you stroll the area's historic streets with your guide. Highlights include tastings at local eateries, sampling local delicacies like knish and bialy, and eating like a king—your included tastings can easily replace lunch.

This was our second tour with Nice Guy Tours and we loved it. Lots of great food, a good mix of places, and some cool information. We live in Brooklyn and know the neighborhood, but find it enjoyable to check out all these places at one time. Plus we were comfortable exploring

Dante was an excellent tour guide! He is very nice and gives you a great overview about the different cuisines and cultures in New York. He is also very entertaining. My family and I took the Lower East Side tour. We hope to return some day and take the Greenwich Village Tour.

This is the perfect way to spend your first morning on the Lower East Side. Dante was so much fun, and he shared so many interesting facts about the history of the LES. I really recommend joining Dante for his tour of all the famous stops in the Lower East Side.

A group of us did a private lower east side tour. Dante was our guide. He was informative and funny. Food was delicious, we had a great variety of items. No one seemed to mind the very cold weather. As we left we were making plans to do the Greenwich village tour with Dante.
