What you'll do

Discover Broadway history as you eat your way through quintessential New York desserts under the bright lights of Broadway.

You will be guided through the Theater District by real NYC actors, who are also licensed tour guides. You will get the inside scoop on Broadway and the Theatre District’s history while learning interesting tidbits about the shows currently playing on Broadway.

Tastings include classic New York style desserts like cheesecake, black and white cookies, frozen custard (a New York invention!), sour cream apple walnut pie, cupcakes, and an NYC staple, the chocolate egg cream.

We'll start in the Times Square area, where you will meet your guide and the rest of your group. We'll start with a light and sweet coffee—New York style, of course—as we work our way through the Theatre District while enjoying six delicious tastings.

Where you'll be

Throughout the Theatre District, we will visit some of the best bakeries in the city trying treats from cookies to cheesecake and even a NYC egg cream! 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.

Kelley was amazing throughout the entire trip! I was a solo traveller and she made me feel welcome and gave some great NYC tips. The tour was just as amazing, the desserts were enjoyable (I even went back the next day to get another one) and Kelley told us some great history about the places around us. Definitely recommend if you're going to NYC!

It was an wonderful experience!!! Kelsey and Alyssa kept smiling at us, and let us have excellent desserts you can't find on google. They also explained the background story of the desserts we had and also interesting stories about NYC! You may think it is a little expensive for desserts, but it's definitely worth!

The mix of history and sweets was just perfect! I learned a lot about the theater district but also to the food places we've been to. The desserts were so delicious and there is definitely something for everyone from chocolaty to fruity to creamy. Dionna our guide was so lovely and really passionate. You could really see that she is a licensed guide because she had a lot of knowledge about the desserts and food places but also about New York in general. I absolutely recommend this tour for every sweet tooth or someone who just wants to know more about the Broadway history. Thank you Dionna!
