Discover the lesser known highlights of New York’s Central Park and Hell’s Kitchen during this 4-hour combination food and walking tour. Visitors and locals alike are sure to make some new discoveries during this culinary-themed walking tour and visit to the Big Apple’s most popular park.

Make your way to L’ybane restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen in the afternoon, where you’ll meet your experienced guide to begin your excursion in this fascinating area. Located just west of Times Square, this long-overlooked neighborhood offers an incredible array of food, culture and nightlife options for those willing to look beyond the usual Big Apple highlights.

Begin your food crawl to some of the many ethnic eateries lining this busy neighborhood’s blocks. As you proceed you’ll snack on hush puppies, chow down on baba ghanoush and cap it all off with a mouth-watering doughnut and ice cream sandwich. You’ll have enough to eat during this part of your day to count for a full lunch.

Continue your tour by burning off your food with a walk to nearby Central Park. One of the world’s most iconic (and historic) green spaces has a wealth of off-the-beaten track attractions for those that know where to look. Ever wonder how much the land inside the park is worth? Heard of Shakespeare’s Garden? Where do you end up if you take the only straight path in the park? Each of these queries will be explained as you make your way through this outdoor wonderland.

Check out areas of Central Park few non-locals will ever explore, including one secluded spot that feels a million miles away from the concrete of the Big Apple. You’ll cover approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) total, walking at a moderate pace. Finish your trip in the park, allowing you the option to continue your exploration on your own.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Manhattan Walking Tour
Make your way to midtown Manhattan to meet your expert guide and head off to explore one of New York City’s most bustling and diverse neighborhoods. Hell’s Kitchen may sound imposing, but it’s a very welcoming and culturally rich part of town. Once a rough-and-tumble neighborhood filled with poor Irish-Americans, Hell’s Kitchen today is a safe area, its streets flanked by ethnic eateries. Stop by restaurants to munch on baba ghanoush, bourekas and the pièce de résistance: a doughnut and ice cream sandwich with lots of toppings. Sample enough food on this portion of the tour to make a full lunch. Next, walk off those calories by following your guide to Central Park. The greatest urban park in the world holds many intriguing secrets. Can you guess what Central Park’s real estate value is? Can you guess how long it took to build Central Park? Where does the only straight path in the park lead? These are some of the questions that will be answered as you explore the park. Go to parts of the park many people don’t know about, including a spot that feels as if you’re miles and miles from the urban jungle that is New York City. Expect to walk about 3 miles (5 km) in all, at a comfortable pace; Hell’s Kitchen is flat, and Central Park is a little hilly. The tour ends at Central Park, leaving you free to continue to explore the city on your own.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! It was very informative, and Claire our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and architecture around the areas we visited. We tried new food we wouldn't have on our own. We explored central park. We got a unique prospective on what makes the NYC what it is today and how it has changed and grown. The food deserves another mention because it was fantastic!!

Highly recommend this tour. The food was awesome but the stroll through Hell's Kitchen and Central Park was outstanding. Nancy our tour guide was knowledgable and made the whole experience fantastic. Well worth the money for the tour.

Central Park is beautiful on its own but learning the unique history about the area with someone as experienced as Nancy is just the icing on the cake! We hope to have you back on some of our other tours!
