I was disappointed with the tour. Having been on two tours with another NYC operator it thought this one was, at full price, too expensive, the food choices were not as spectacular and I was a bit disappointed. I would reccomend the NY Food and Culture tour over this one.

We were scheduled to use our groupons with another couple of Saturday, May 25th. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy, windy and unseasonably cold so we cancelled the day before. We were able to do this and were told we would have to pay a $20 rebooking fee. Honestly, if we had gone, we would not have enjoyed the excursion. We will rebook, but it will now cost us an additional $20 each - so we are not really enjoying the deal from groupon.

The guide was good. However, the tour was not even worth the groupon amount.

First the http:// address on the groupon did not work. Then I went to Elegant Tightwad and confirmed our reservation. Went to the adress on the groupon and met one other couple and waited over 30 minutes. We called and found out we needed to meet at a different location so we arrived a little late. Our guide had to call his boss Pam whom we had to talk into letting us join the group. We finally started the tour hungry and after 2 hrs. into it we were still hungry! We didn't stay for the dessert part of the tour because we wanted to go eat and not walk over 6 blocks to another "tasting". For the money I spent I would like a refund it was not worth it!

From Our Editors

When it came time to name her business, Pamela Parisi looked to her own nickname: The Elegant Tightwad. She earned the moniker during 20 years spent in the fashion industry as a clothing designer, manufacturer, and mannequin guidance counselor. Parisi developed a reputation for her conflicting loves for designer clothes and fiscal responsibility. Always a problem solver, she quickly learned to marry her two passions by developing extensive knowledge of designer showrooms and the wholesale prices they charge. Today, she uses her nose for bargains to guide tour groups to the best deals on designer clothes and accessories. Her cash-saving tours have even garnered the attention of CNN and Elle magazine. In addition to her Garment District Diva tours, Parisi has also extended her expertise into the world of food. Her tasting excursions explore some of the most tempting eats in Hell's Kitchen, from Italian and Greek specialties to sweet treats from bakeries and ice cream shops.
