What you'll do

First let me say that most Gangster Tours in New York City are total BS- This experience comes right from the “horse’s mouth” no tour guide no filter. Get the real stories while visiting notorious gangland locations as we walk from the East Village to Little Italy experiencing what it was like to be an associate of New York's famous families. You'll hear first hand accounts of the NYC Mafia and crimes in NYC and taste the local cuisines. We will visit Crime Family member hang-outs where they ate, partied and ran their elusive "family businesses". Visit the locations tour companies don’t even know exist. See the former Gambino headquarters "The Ravenite Social Club" and more. We meet at a famous mafia “red sauce joint” est 1908.. We'll top it off with a full-sized cannoli from one of Little Italy's iconic local pastry spots. We finish up in Little Italy where I ensure you know your way home and always offer my personal contact information and offer my assistance with reservations or things to do while you’re in NYC. To date we have hosted over 8,000 guests and have over 1,500 five-star ratings. This is not just another Mafia tour in New York.

Where you'll be

We will experience Italian foods at some of New York’s best eats while you walk with me through the East Village, Lower Eastside and Little Italy while tasting some of the best foods the city has to offer. Food equivalent to a full meal. Dress weather appropriate and wear comfortable shoes as this is a walking experience that runs rain or shine. Your fee is donated to organisations that help others - Not your typical gangster tour in NYC

Straight from the horse’s mouth, is right! 10/10 recommend. Dennis is the real deal and the tour was fantastic. We started our night off eating some great Italian food at the birthplace of the mafia. And then we ventured out into the streets of Little Italy where Dennis told us the craziest stories, and then we ate more food, and heard more stories, and bunch of people got murdered along the way I think (in the stories, not real life) and it was awesome!

Awesome walking tour through East Village and Little Italy with fascinating stories, great food, and an awesome host. Dennis definitely knows what’s what with the area and it’s history and he makes everyone feel welcome. I feel like I made a friend for sure. This experience was so good I’ve decided I’m moving to NYC! Go on this tour!

Excellent experience. Dennis truly “has been around”, knows his stuff and is able to share some gear stories. And the food was awesome.

Dennis is a really unique and interesting guy, having grown up in the area he has so many local insights and stories to tell. 100/10. Loved every minute of it! Thank you Dennis!!!!!

This is such a unique tour! The food was great of course (I've never had fresh mozzarella cheese that good!). But my favorite part was the thoughtfulness put into choosing locations, and of course, Dennis' excellent storytelling! You can tell Little Italy is personal and important to Dennis, and he has a long history with the area and it's people that really shines through.
