Live the best gastronomic experience on a guided walking tour through the southeast of Manhattan. You will taste the best traditional dishes and visit interesting places in the borough.

For an in-depth look at the history of Southeast Manhattan, a visit to the African Burial Ground National Monument is a must. Here lie more than 400 remains of African-Americans, free and mostly slaves, buried during the 17th and 18th centuries.

You will be impressed with the architecture of St. Patrick's Cathedral. It is the largest neo-Gothic church in North America.

You will stroll through the Lower East Side neighborhood and witness its evolution. It is one of the oldest in NYC where millions of expatriates arrived. You will pass very close to the Tenement Museum, a museum that reveals the life of immigrants in New York from 1870 to 1940.

Chinatown, the neighborhood that is home to the largest Chinese community in the West, will be waiting to seduce you with its charm. Its striking streets with Chinese signs make it a world apart in the Big Apple.

You will enjoy some green areas. You will pass by Columbus Park and Sara Delano Roosevelt Park. Your guide will show you how both parks have changed over the years.

You will walk along the colorful lanes of Little Italy and your guide will tell you the story of the first Italian expatriates who took refuge in this area of Manhattan. You will contemplate the modern art on the streets and visit a famous food store for an exquisite tasting.

You'll also walk the streets of Nolita, formerly Little Italy's turf, lined with restaurants, bars and art.

    I really enjoyed taking a tour that included the history of the neighborhoods and gave us a chance to try their food. Our guide was great, she knew a lot of things and shared them with us. I 100% recommend this tour. We did NOT have to eat dinner afterwards!

    We wanted to discover a part of New York that we didn't know, and this tour hit the nail on the head. Our guide was wonderful, very energetic and enthusiastic about the areas we went through and the food we tried. The tour route was perfectly planned so that we could sample and discover various neighborhoods. The food was very tasty, just don't eat before the tour!

    This was our favorite tour of this trip. It was well worth it. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and the tour itself was full of information and history. The food was excellent (we are still talking about some of the samples we tasted weeks later). It was a great way to see the area, taste good food and give us an idea of where to go next time. Highly recommend this tour, even though it was cold when we did it, it is easy to do the hike and understand the guide perfectly. A great tour.
