Where you'll be

We will visit some of the best bakeries in Hell's Kitchen, trying treats from pie to chocolates and even Greek baklava! Some tastings and flavors are preselected and some you can choose yourself. You should expect to walk about 1 mile at a leisurely pace with opportunities to use the restroom and sit down. We pride ourselves on getting out off the beaten path, introducing guests to bakeries that even locals are sometimes surprised to learn of.

The experience is super worth! Vou learn a lot about the history of Hell's Kitchen and its gastronomy, I went to places that I would never find by myself. The tour guides are really caring, I got lost on the subway but they helped me to find the correct way and waited for me.
