Description

from Tenements, Tales, and Tastes
Get in touch with the tasty culture of NYC on this New York food tour that is a pleasure for both the stomach and the mind!

This New York City tour will start off at a location where many new citizens are made official, City Hall. Here at the northern edge of the colonial city we’ll start our journey with a delicious Dutch treat, just one of many foods that has made its way over thanks to the immigrant population in NYC. On this historical tour of New York, we’ll make our way around the Lower East Side, visiting 100-year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. We’ll stroll the streets of Little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. Marvel at former and still operating Jewish synagogues. Wind our way through the streets of Chinatown, where you’ll feel like you’re in Shanghai. We’ll dive into Latin culture at a community garden and take in cultural sites like the African Burial Ground. Along the way on this New York food tour, we’ll sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Dumplings, pretzels, cheese, and more. We’ll taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to the American Dream.

"Delhi - the secret mystique beyond the crazy Facade"

Day one in Delhi on my first trip to India as a solo female traveller. I booked the NY urban adventures at the recommendation of my flight centre travel agent in Sydney. We both agreed this tour sounded a bit more cultural and more than just temples. It was well worth every cent. My tour guide, Punita was so friendly, informative and shared so much knowledge about the complicated political and religious history of Delhi. I sampled an awful lot in 4 hours. It’s a great intro to riding the metro, it’s simpler than Sydney. Riding a Rickshaw, meandering the maze of lanes in the old city, the architecture is stunning. This particular NY tour is about the only way you will get to glimpse inside an Haveli and comprehend what it looks like behind all the ancient doors of the laneway maze. And the bonus is kite flying and a traditional Indian high tea...to me it was actually a feast of food. No dinner required after this for sure. And there’s more.., the Jama Masjid Mosque at sunset and Stop off at Asia’s largest spice market on the way home. My tour guide was a gem and I’m booking again in 12 days for another Urban Adventures tour when I return back to Delhi. Fabulous
