What you'll do

On our Secret Pizza Tours: New York, we eat our way through the charming, historic, and bohemian neighborhood of the East Village located on the lower east side of Manhattan island.

Over generations, the East Village has been the home of numerous thriving immigrant and artist communities, visible today in this area's landscape, art scene, and — of course — food culture. As such, we will be trying pizza that has been inspired by all the different cultures such as Lebanese pizza, Beijing Pizza, Italian Pizza and German Pizza. Plus lots more and our delicious secret dish!

All the food will be served with water and at times, a non-alcoholic beverage. Or if you prefer, a thoughtfully curated Upgraded Drinks Package is available.

*Please note that we may cancel the tour if fewer than two guests have booked 24 hours prior to the tour start time.

  • To begin, your native New York guide will introduce you to our Secret Dish, a truly unique take on what we in the Big Apple call a "square" slice.
  • We'll continue our tour at a Lebanese café where we'll indulge in manakeesh, aka Lebanese pizza.
  • Next, we'll stroll down one of the most storied streets of the East Village, St. Mark's Place, as well as a jaunt through historic Tompkins Square Park. We'll check out some of the coolest street art in the city as well.
  • After you've revved up your appetite a bit, you will get partake on a unique Asian twist on pizza, a stuffed sesame pancake.
  • We'll finish up our pizza tasting adventure with both a delightful twist on a New York classic — a "white slice" with pepperoni, along with our most classic slice, a delectable rift on the timeless classic Margherita.
  • Along the way, your guide will share with you some of the East Village's secret history and how it has changed over time. One thing that has remained unchanged is its incredible artistic and food culture!
  • Oh, and, of course, what would savory be without a little sweet? We end our tour with a Bavarian cream tart from one of the city's oldest and most renowned Italian bakeries.

WHY THE VILLAGE?

We chose the East Village district for our New York City pizza tour because of the area's diverse immigrant community, deep-rooted history, artistic slant, and its eternal magnetism. Since the neighborhood was born of farmland, some of its green space harkens back to that simpler time. Throughout the generations, the backgrounds of its citizens have changed, but what remains is a mosaic of diverse cultures, the arts, and a food scene second to none!

There is no shortage of history here either! Historic landmarks, parks, and buildings abound, and if you remember New York City in its cultural heyday, you can still find a snapshot of that bygone time here in the East Village.

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
