What you'll do

We'll meet up at 9:30am at Absolute Bagels on the Upper West Side, known for making the best traditional bagels NYC has to offer. We'll introduce ourselves - this is a 420-friendly tour, so vapes, pens, and organic hemp wrapped blunts are welcome. Once we have our bagels, we will head over to St. John the Divine, the world's largest cathedral, over 125 years old. On our way, we'll pass Tom's Restaurant, the famous "Seinfeld Diner." From there, we'll stroll through Morningside Park to Central Park, where we'll check out the Harlem Meer and the Conservatory Garden. Then, we will board the subway and head down to 34th St. We'll come to the Hudson Yards, home of the Vessel - an otherworldly, climbable art installation perfect for photo opportunities. Then, we'll explore Mercado Little Spain, an authentic Spanish market and eatery featuring the delicious diversity of foods and drinks from all corners of one of the richest culinary countries in the world. From there, we'll walk the High Line, a beautiful elevated park built from the ruins of a train track, now saturated with flora and art installations. This will lead us to Little Island, a thoroughly unique park constructed right on the Hudson. We end our tour at the Chelsea Market, original home of the Oreo cookie. This tour is 420 Friendly and LGBTQ+ Friendly. Great for touring DJs and teams. Not suitable for kids under 18.

The tour was a great adventure and Max showed us all of the best places in the city. Max is a very good guy, very friendly, considerate, and knows tons about NYC. He definitely connected with myself, my husband and our three teenage daughters as a group and on an individual level. Midway through the tour it felt like we had always known Max. I highly recommend this tour! Make sure you wear comfortable shoes as there is tons of walking. After the tour I can guarantee you'll feel like a native New Yorker!

Max’s Wake & Bake tour was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. I was lucky enough to enjoy the company of him & his wife, Alia. As a solo female traveler, his consideration to making me feel safe and comfortable was greatly appreciated. Max had so much knowledge & compassion for his community and it provided a lot of perspective to the city. We walked to so many unique & beautiful sights of NYC including Central Park, The Vessel, High Line, & Chelsea Market. The eateries selected were delicious. My personal favorite was the Nutella-filled cinnamon sugar croissant from Little Spain. I will be coming back to do the tour again in the near future. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes& bring water! It’s a LOT of walking & the summer heat can be a little tough.

Max was a great host. He’s a long time resident and really knows his city well. It’s a very very long walk though, so be prepared.
