What you'll do

WE ARE BACK!!!

Welcome to the only food and history tour that asks the question "what is a sandwich?" and answers it by EATING 3 different interpretations of the sandwich.

Ticket price is all inclusive of food. You won't leave hungry!

Together we visit foodie destinations that you won't find in a tourist guidebook as we eat our way through the East Village. Along the way we'll hear stories about the history of the sandwich, and the people who make them. We'll also discover street art and learn about the history of the neighborhood too.

Private tours available for corporate teams too. As experienced by Amazon, Google, Audible and more.

Come with an open mind, leave with a FULL stomach (and an answer to whether or not a hotdog, a burger or a taco is a sandwich).

Please note that we will follow all appropriate covid safety measures, so PLEASE BRING A MASK. New York state law now requires Proof of covid vaccination to eat indoors, so please bring yours to the tour. Locations may be subject to change - not all locations in the video will be available.

* Don't see a day/time that suits you? Ask me for a new time and I can try to accommodate.

**Sorry this tour is not for gluten-free or vegan diets. Vegetarians can be accommodated though!

***Private Groups available - experience is great for team bonding activities!

A very Interesting tour and great place selections for “sandwiches.” The tour is a treat, both culinarily and intellectually. I truly enjoyed it! Two big thumbs up for Ben.

Ben is a Sandwichologist - he spoke in the dialect of "Sandwich," with a touch of an Australian accent. We felt at home as he guided us on a perfect Sandwich tour in his eclectic neighborhood. He selected top-shelf sandwiches and had us thinking about this reoccurring theme - What is a sandwich? Admittedly, after the first bite of my sandwich, I couldn't think about anything else but how delicious this sandwich is, and my next bite. If you love food, listening to great stories, and walking in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in NYC, book this tour - It's a winner! Oh, and the last stop is at one of the best dive bars in the city - Cheers Mate :)

Loved taking Ben’s tour. Everyone that came was solo, but he made it very comfortable for the group. He’s a great storyteller and his passion for sandwiches is contagious.

This was a really enjoyable experience! Ben was a great tour guide and we are 3 yummy sandwiches. It was definitely a “tour” though, so if you live in New York it might be a lot of information you already know. Still fun though and had a great time overall!!

Ben was wonderful! Super engaged with his guests, thoughtful with the places chosen, and did a wonderful job with the group as a whole. I'd do this again in the future!
