The Cupcake Tour of New York

The Cupcake Tour of New York

Product Review (submitted on March 4, 2014):
Always looking for something new to do with our 13yr old and 10 yr old grandchildren, we made reservations through Groupon at a 50% discount for 12 noon on what seemed like the coldest day of the year. Only grandparents can get away with feeding their grandchildren an array of cupcakes and goodies for lunch!

As a Long Island, New Yorker, the 11/2 mile walk from Union Square to Greenwich Village wasn't new. But for a visitor from out of state, this 2 hour tour might be a nice way to see a part of New York City that is not the more famous Times Square or Rockfeller Center, and with 6 stops for yummy sweets along the way.

Mallory, our guide, was adorable with a good personality- enthusiastic and articulate. She greeted us in her "cupcake" knit hat and genuine smile and filled our minds with facts about the area along the way in addition to filling our sweet tooths with cupcakes from NYC's top/award winning bakeries. We even had a gelato taste and a macaron (not macaroon) from the one and only place that makes these in NYC.

I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to do a little different tour in NYC. There were 20 persons in our group, 18 of whom were from the NY/NJ area and only 2 from (of all places in Feb) sunny Miami. International travellers or 1st timers to NYC who have limited time, stay with the famous landmarks first. The Great New York Cupcake Tour is a lot of fun but just icing on the cake!
