Where you'll be

From Chelsea to the West Village, we will visit some of the best bakeries in the city trying treats from cookies to donuts -you'll even create a goodie bag of your favorite candies. You should expect to walk about 1.5 miles at a leisurely pace with opportunities to use the restroom and sit down. We pride ourselves on getting out off the beaten path and introducing guests to bakeries that even locals are sometimes surprised to learn of.

Alyssa, the guide was like the friendliest, most entusiastic person that I met in New York. The tour itself was absolutely worth it price-qualitywise.

Dionna was phenomenal! It felt like an old friend was taking us through the city and showing us all of her favorite spots! The half pound cookies and the donuts were TO DIE FOR! It was a lengthy walking tour, but the structure of the tour made it more manageable as it allowed for breaks. Highly recommend. 10/10 would do again!

We did the tour with Brendan. He was really nice and fun. You don't get only to eat candies, you also get some historical - funny facts about New York.

Brendan was a fantastic guide, supremely informed and knowledgeable. Was well able to answer any questions we had on the history of the area or the baked goods. You’ll be more than happy after the trip as the sampling’s are quite generous. We ended up needing a doggy bag for some of the treats to finish later. The tour itself is a pleasant walk around Chelsea and the Meat Packing district and finally into Greenwich. Some of the bakeries/sweet shops can be quite busy and crowded but that’s a sign of how good the produce is. Would recommend Brendan and the tour for any person or couple that has a spare couple of hours.
