Walking tours let you explore the very sidewalks where that city's famous denizens once strolled and yelled, "I'm famous and I will live forever!" at passing cars. Feel the history beneath your feet with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options

Groups of up to eight people set out to taste their way through different food markets or dessert spots in the West Village and Greenwich Village. The seasonal food-market tour, which changes as markets open and close, visits four open-air and indoor produce exchanges in Chelsea, Union Square, and the Meatpacking District. During the dessert tour, groups stop by five different establishments to try cupcakes, cookies, ice cream, and more, all of which are included in the price of the tour. The food-market tour takes place at 10 a.m. on Saturdays, and the dessert trek sets out at 2 p.m. on Fridays.
Though Snackin' Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Snackin' Tours steers hungry groups to original and oft-overlooked destinations throughout New York to give them a unique taste of the city. In small groups of eight, tours avoid obvious tourist traps in favor of local favorites with routes arranged around a certain theme. Guides recount tales of neighborhood history and toss in factoids along the way while trawling the East Village's bounty of vegetarian eats, the Lower East Side's cluster of boutique food, or the West Village's dessert-paved sidewalks. Tour operators can accommodate guests with dietary restrictions at certain tastings in advance. Snackin' Tours also runs a much larger pub crawl on Thursdays, in which staggered groups of up to 40 people explore six dive bars, taverns, and other pub-like places all over lower Manhattan.
