Great Little Italy & Chinatown History Tour!
Jo_E, Sept 2023
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Chinese gangs and old Italian crime families. Our tour included a break stop at Ferrara Bakery where I purchased some great pignoli cookies and a visit to the old St. Patrick Basilica (beautiful stained glass windows). Great tour!
Excellent! Worth the money
Loved hearing the old stories about the mafia. Pierre was very knowledgeable and had great stories to tell about Chinatown and Little Italy. I definitely want to explore Little Italy more… so many shops and great restaurants and bakeries
Night walk in mob and ghost town

Great time

History made real
Maryam_K, Sept 2023
Blood alley in Chinatown was fascinating! The history is right there in the street and on the buildings. Same with little Italy. Walking through time is so much better when you know what you are looking at.
Very enjoyable tour
Paul_M, Aug 2023
Rose was a fantastic tour guide. It was fascinating to hear about the history of the gangsters in Little Italy. We also loved the ghost stories she told. She was a great storyteller and all of us loved the tour.
A scary - fun time !

I’m a sucker for history and gangsters! This tour was just what I was looking for. Seth was amazing and very well spoken. He was knowledgeable and kept us in our toes.
Worthwhile going for the gangster part
Ren_B, Aug 2023
The gangster part was really excellent .... the ghost one ... OK. The guide was really knowledgeable and had lot of stories to tell. It is fascinating that there are still links to todays live.
Amazing tour through some very historic neighborhoods
Lee_K, Aug 2023
Our tour guide Ben was amazingly insightful and had an answer for any question thrown his way. I like to fancy myself as decently educated when it comes to the mob and I learned so much on our tour! 10/10 stars!
Evening Gangster Walk
Richard_R, Aug 2023
We enjoyed the late evening walk through Chinatown, Little Italy and the surrounding area. The stops along the way were nice to be able to grab a snack or drink.
Great trip! I highly recommend it!
Greg_G, Aug 2023
As a history teacher, I really enjoyed walking through Little Italy and seeing the site of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Also, walking through Washington Square Park and learning how it connected to both the gangsters and ghosts part of the tour was phenomenal.
Excellent tour
Julie_C, Aug 2023
I would see it at night because it just puts you into the mood. Our guide Zoe was very good. It was fascinating learning how mobsters operate and seeing where they operated.
Mafia tour

Great tour of China Town and Little Italy. Our tour guide, Ben, did a great job pointing out hangouts of gangsters and stories of the mob in NY. This is a great way to see an interesting part of Manhattan. Definitely worth doing!!
