This Craft Cocktail tour will bring you to the center of New York City's booming cocktail culture as you visit some of the best cocktail bars in NYC. You will sample delicious libations, ... moreswap tales of speakeasies and gangsters, shop for new local craft spirits, learn how to make great craft cocktails, and discover some of the best places to grab a drink in the Big Apple. It’s a great way to start off an unforgettable New York City night. 

Our tours focus on the small, local (and usually hole-in-the-wall) spots that you never would've noticed on your own. Our local guides will introduce you to local shop owners, brewers, and more as we show you the places where we like to hang out. New York City is a walking city, the best way to experience it is wandering around its many diverse neighborhoods, and with small groups, you'll feel more like you're hanging out with friends rather than a big tour being herded around. We believe that local travel should truly benefit the local community. Too often when people travel they stick to things that are comfortable, like chain restaurants or shops that they recognize. That's why we promote all small businesses that support other local businesses and suppliers.

Whether you're a foodie, a craft beer fan, history buff, or just really love hanging out in NYC, this is the tour for you.
