The problem with many commercial tours is that the tour guide has a canned script that he shoots off, and doesn't really know much outside of it. Or else you get a guy who just can't wait to dump you and collect his tips and run. You know you've hit the jackpot when the tour guide throws in anecdotes off the cuff, can answer any question you throw at him, and reveals a deep passion for his subject that he shares with every enthusiastic sentence. That's Jeff, the tour guide of Lover East Side, a walking tour of the Lower East Side. He does all kinds of subjects, like history, architecture, culture, food (yum!) of the deeply historic and ethnic little corner of NYC. The nice thing about LES tours is that it's small. You wont be lost in a crowd following a guy waving an umbrella, and a side trip upon request is not unheard of. If you have any roots in old New York, or if you've ever wondered about this rich neighborhood that has produced so many of our nation's greats or contributed to so much of our culture (pickles, bagels, and yiddishisms like "shtick" and "chutzpah") then I think you'll enjoy this tour.
