    Thank you, Rori, for an incredible Hell's Kitchen Dessert tour! My fiancé got me this tour as a gift given our shared love of dessert. I wasn't sure what to expect, especially as a local; however, it was a stellar experience. We visited both places I had been before as well as some "new ones" (new to me, not to the City). In both cases, I learned something new about their history and, most importantly, enjoyed delicious treats. I was also very happy with how accommodating they were for my fiancé's nut allergies. We're considering getting tours in the other neighborhoods, and would recommend it to anyone who wants some tasty treats and to learn more about our fantastic city.

    This tour was incredible. We heard the history and backstory of each of the bakeries and sampled some delicious creations from each. My daughter is interested in a career in pastry arts, so this was educational as well as delicious for us both! Rory was a terrific tour guide!

    We enjoyed Rori, the guide, who was very nice, caring, interesting and in a good spitit. The deserts were great to.

    Initially booked this tour for April 2020. They would only give me a credit instead of a refund. Tried twice to reschedule; once they never replied to my request. Finally went on the tour 4/16/22. I had booked a private tour, but arrived to find another pair on our tour (who also had booked a private tour.) Roxi was a very good tour guide: pleasant, knowledgeable, and experienced. Visited 6 bakeries; only had a choice of flavors at 2 of them (Schmackary's and Huascar & Co.) The Sour Cream Apple pie at Little Pie Co. was quite good. The small piece of baklava at Poseidon Bakery was terrible; it had a very odd flavor. The Chocolate Chip challah bread (we were supposed to have chocolate chip sourdough, but they were sold out) was also disappointing: it was dry and tasteless. I chose a bacon chocolate chip cookie at Schmackary's and liked it. The cherry pistachio cupcake I chose at Huascar & Co was also very good. The Earl Gray Cream Puff at Bibble and Sip was fine (and enormous). The tour cost almost $70 plus the "optional" tip, so it cost around $155 for my party of two. Considering that the price of the food if bought on your own is only about $25, I do not feel like we got our money's worth. The history and information provided by the tour guide was interesting, but most of it could be found with a simple Google search. My advice: visit the places on your own. You'll get to choose items that appeal to you, you won't get overstuffed, and you'll save a bunch of money.

    A great tour with plenty of amazing and unique baked treats along the way. Rori, our guide was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and very responsive to our needs and listened to our daughter talk her ear off for the whole tour. Highly recommended!

    We really enjoyed this tour. The park we started at was a little scary, but luckily had a bathroom. Tour guy showed up on time in Orange shirt like directions said. We walked and learned so much. It wasn’t just a tasting tour, we took back leftovers, couldn’t even eat it all. Visited delicious family owned businesses. Everyone was so nice and wonderful.

    Kelly was an excellent tour guide. Loved the desserts especially the pie!!! Would definitely recommend

    Kelly was a great guide. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 was because my son had a hair in his dessert at POSEIDON GREEK BAKERY. Other places on the tour were great!

    I bought my mom a gift certificate to the Hell's Kitchen tour and we both really enjoyed it. I've been in NYC for 15 years and I love sweet treats, and I only knew two of the spots we visited, which was awesome because I love discovering new spots to try among the endless possibilities in NYC. This tour is not about the "best cupcakes in NYC" or the latest Instagram food trends, which you can easily find yourself. It's more about uncovering legendary spots and newcomers in Hell's Kitchen that are doing something really unique and special, and the stories behind them. All of the desserts were delicious (including the best cookie I've ever had) and the portions were perfect to take the place of lunch without feeling gross. Our tour guide was really fun and had great stories about the neighborhood and the theater community. Highly recommend for locals and visitors!
