Thought the tasting would have included more pairing of chocolate / dessert and wine . Also only one sample of wine/ beer . It was a great pub atmosphere. The tour guide was great .

Fun Mother/Daughter day!

Attended: Downtown New York Chocolate, Dessert & Drink Tour
 
I bought this while looking for fun/different things to do while my mom and I were in New York on vacation. We were there over Mother’s day weekend. There were three groups of Mother/daughters (including us) and one couple in the tour.

Our guide was fantastic! (I believe her name was Jess) She told us much more information about the city than the bus tour we had taken that morning. She also told us a lot of information about the proprietors of the shops, their background and great info about their shops and food.

The tour had 7 stops. Chocolate, cookie, cheeses, chocolate, cheeses, cookie, bar.

We were disappointed that there weren’t wine pairings at some of these stops. The description of the tour leads one to believe that is what you will be getting. Maybe that’s just the way I took it, but from reading other reviews perhaps the description needs to be changed a little. The last stop is a bar that you can choose whatever beverage you would like.

My mom and I had a wonderful time! It may not have been exactly what we expected but we would definitely do it again. It was a great way to learn about the city and find great places to eat only the locals know about.

Poor bar crawl

Attended: NYC Cocktail Tour - Prohibition Style
 
We met outside an awful looking pub where our first cocktail was an old fashion. 3 out of 4 of us left this due to not liking whisky. The tour seemed really lacking in terms of history and the bars just seemed to be places that were vying for the business. It was a saturday evening and all 3 bars were empty. In the final bar we were made to wait 20 mins for a cocktail. My girlfriend had previously done the food tour with same company which she and her friends said was brilliant. This was massively disappointing in comparison.
