Becki was an amazing guide! Funny, personable, and informative, it was easy to converse with her and ask her any question on our minds. Also, the food choices were superb - I was so impressed! Never would have known to visit this market/specific vendors otherwise, and so grateful I did!

Sue was an amazing guide!!!! She made the tour easy to follow and enjoy. It’s perfect for solo travelers, as a way to work around the city and taste things we’ve seen on Instagram.

This was a great tour. Peter was a fabulous guide. My only recommendation is to consider shortening it by an hour, and let people explore on their own after the tour...rather than in the middle. We were disappointed we didn't get to go to the restaurant under the bridge due to it being closed.

Our guide, SUE, was amazing. We have participated in 50+ La Vacanza Travel offerings and SUE is at the top of the heap, plus JOE LaROCKO in New York for the Chelse Market & Highline Food Tour.
