Justin was a very informative tour guide. The tour was perfect as far as time and distance. Thought it was extremely well thought out and was enjoyable. Only suggestion would be to try the mac and cheese at Bleechers instead of the grill cheese sandwich!

Tour was great - interesting, well-paced and delicious, hearty portions of food samplings. Our tour guide, Justin, was terrific. He provided a wealth of Flatiron area/NYC knowledge in a fascinating way. Thank you so much, Justin!

We had an amazing time on this tour, learned a lot and saw and learned things that you do not get by simply using Google. The food was amazing and not stops we would know to stop at. Highly recommended for anyone who likes architecture and food! Definitely a highlight thus far

This was an excellent tour. Each of the places we stopped for samples was a place we would gladly return for a second helping. Justin was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We’ve been in the Flatiron District several times before, but this tour definitely gave us a deeper understanding and appreciation of the area.

This tour is a very good way to learn about the history of this part of the city. The architecture is very interesting and so many of the buildings have an intriguing history of their own. The guide Justin was excellent!
