The tour was fabulous! Food was divine (especially the Reuben Bagel!) But if you can request a guide, ask for Justin. The guy knows his way around some fascinating Manhattan history, architecture and melted cheese. Well done!

A very enjoyable tour, even for people who live/have lived in New York City

My husband and I met and married in New York City in the early 2000s, so we were not exactly strangers to all the various communities and areas of Manhattan. But since we moved back to California in 2005, we like to go on tours of areas we loved and/or didn't get to know as well when we lived there, and to see what's changed over the years. The Flatiron District Tour was one of the better tours we've enjoyed. Our guide was funny and knowledgable, and pointed out a great number of details we missed during our years here. Regardless if you are a first-time visitor to the city or someone who lived here for years, this was a very enjoyable tour for all.

Thank you Cassandra for leaving us this excellent review! How fun to get to experience a new side of Manhattan through our Flatiron Food, History and Architecture Tour! We hope to have you on a tour again in the future.

This was such a great tour! My wife and I both love architectural history (we met in architecture school) and enjoy trying good food. Our guide, Justin, was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone had enough time to enjoy their food and ask questions. We had some delicious pizza from Eataly, followed by a Reuben sandwich on a bagel and then a grilled cheese sandwich with probably the best cheese we've tried in a long, long time from Beecher's. Overall great experience, would recommend it to anyone interested.

Russell did a great job weaving together historical and architectural information with his knowledge as a native New Yorker into compelling stories throughout the tour. We learned a lot, ate some great local food and enjoyed seeing this part of the city in greater depth than we ever could have on our own. We definitely recommend this tour and be sure to arrive hungry!

Absolutely one of the best "Food Walking Tours" ever! Our guide Justin was engaging, enthusiastic and had the coolest antidotes about everything in the Flatiron District. I learned things during this tour that I never would have known. Justin really made this tour special. The food was great to and Justin made sure everyone had a place to wait while he gathered up our treats! I highly recommend this tour to anyone local or visiting! Much Fun!
