Fun in Manhattan! Chinatown and Little Italy Food Fest

My son and I had a great time! Maryana was awesome! Her enthusiasm was infectious and she balanced history, culture, and food talk perfectly. Loved exploring a part of the city we weren't familiar with. Found spots we'll definitely return to, and really enjoyed every delicious thing we ate! Go hungry! We will definitely do another one next time we're back in NYC, what a great way to spend a morning!

Food And History Chinatown and Little Italy Food Fest

It was cold but we had on cold weather clothes. Not that much walking over 3 hours. Maybe one half mile. Mary Ana was excellent. She talked about the food but talked even more about history.Our group had 7 people, food stops were good. Just a very enjoyable and learning experience.
