This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Harlem, 110th to 150th streets, New York City, NY
Get what you want out of your experience - try globally influenced flavors as you sample some of Harlem's classic soul food dishes
Pass By: Brooklyn Bridge, New York City, NY 10038

Catch an exhibition or live jazz act at the Bronx Museum of the Arts- if you feel super cultured
Pass By: Brooklyn, Brooklyn, New York
Microbreweries, prohibition brew houses and NY pizza (enough said).
Pass By: Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY
Roam around this hip(ster) spot, seeing what there is to see, eating what there is to eat and shopping what there is to shop. Head’s up, there’s a lot of all of the above.
Spot vivid street art, sift through thrift stores, pop into impossibly cool boutiques, muse over contemporary art in a small gallery, peruse the local flea market or just kick it on a barge overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
Pass By: Greenwich Village, 14th Street and West of Broadway, New York City, NY 10003
If you’ve ever wondered what New York tastes like, you’ll find out on in Greenwich Village. You’ll could on the dishes that are close to every New Yorker’s heart, from warm-from-the-oven choc’ chip cookies to creamy New York cheesecake, to Sicilian-style arancini - decadent bites of fried rice stuffed with dreamy combos like Bolognese sauce and melted cheese.
Snack in a classic ‘mom and pop’ shops as you hear about the Italian immigrants who brought their incredible food culture with them, indulge in a freshly filled cannoli and float away into New York food heaven as you bite into classics like bagels with lox or a door-stopper sized pastrami sandwich.
Pass By: Grand Central Terminal, 89 E 42nd Street, New York City, NY 10017-5503
You’ll see the iconic skyscrapers and landmarks - hello Grand Central - but the twist is, it will be through the eyes of your host. They can’t wait to share with you what they love about the area, where they hang out, and what’s good to eat and drink.
Pass By: Midtown, Midtown, New York City, New York
From Times Square to Rockefeller to the Empire State, there are more New York landmarks here per square metre than anywhere else in the city (probably, we haven’t had this fact independently verified…) and your host can’t wait to show them to you!
NOTE: Entrance fees are not included and we recommend that you visit the interior of these attractions autonomously.
Pass By: Meatpacking District, West of Eighth Avenue, New York City, NY 10014
Dimly lit cocktail bars, gallery openings, flagship designer stores and ultra-cool restaurants.
Whether your idea of a good time is more trendy and high-end designer shopping followed by a cocktail, dinner at the latest restaurant opening followed an evening musing over contemporary art, or bar hopping between sleek wine bars and dimly-lit cocktail joints, you’ll find it all here.
Pass By: SoHo, SoHo, New York City, New York
Enjoy the famous Soho and its hidden gems just around the corner from iconic attractions, and wander its historic streets
Pass By: Little Italy, Little Italy, New York City, New York
We would recommend perusing the delis in Little Italy though, which have been in the same families for generations and trying a cannoli or two, then paying homage to NY’s very first pizzeria (by eating a slice, obviously).
