Activity Overview
Our company philosophy is learning about wine should be as fun as drinking it! Visit two premium wine destinations in SoHo during yourSaturday afternoon wine-tasting walking tour. At each stop, sample world-class wines matched with delicious cuisine while your expert guide and winemaker hosts share tips on selecting, tasting and pairing wines. Enjoy customized attention as you discover great restaurants and wine shops and learn about wine history. Get the inside scoop on how to find good values on a restaurant wine list, and even how to ask for a discount!

Expect to walk around a half mile (0.8 km) total at a leisurely pace between tasting locations. At each destination, the friendly staff greets you and shows you to your private table for the tasting. It is recommended that you wear comfortable, dressy-casual clothing and shoes.

Your first stop is Galli where you will savor delicious Italian or Spanish wines and Italian comfort food pairings. Learn the basics of tasting wine and pairing it with complementary foods as you snack on grilled calamari or mozzarella with tomatoes, accompanied by two glasses of wine.

Your second stop will be at a second sensational restaurant in the heart of SoHo, Spring Street Natural. Spring Street Natural was founded when terms such as “farm to table”, “locavore,” and “organic” were virtually unheard of in relation to food and dining. You are guaranteed to enjoy more delicious wine and food pairings as your guide discusses the art of selecting, tasting, and pairing fine wines. Your tour will conclude after 2 hours, at which time you'll be free to enjoy another glass, hit the town, or test your newfound knowledge at a local wine shop.

We guarantee you will drink good wine and you will have fun throughout your tour ... no wine snobs will be found here!

The meatpacking district was once an industrial neighborhood, now turned hip commercial area full of fashionable places such as high-end designer clothing stores. As you wind your ... moreway through some of these chic and upscale areas, you can pick up a fresh poppy bagel as you marvel at how industrial spaces can be transformed into upmarket real-estate. Better yet, the fresh bagels can perhaps be your appetizer, for when you visit the fine eateries and taste some of the imported gourmets in this landmark location, considering the oreo cookie originated from here.

High Line, as the name suggests, is a highly elevated pathway which has been ingeniously transformed into a park, the only one of its kind in New York. Built on the former New York Central Railroad which was abandoned for years, it now a one-mile long sightseeing adventure. One thing about exploring nature trails or going on a sight-seeing walk is that you might get hungry but luckily, there are hotels and restaurants that line this area. Additionally, the elevation factor creates a breathtaking view of the Hudson River and the street life below. Simply, put, this is a bagel tour within a sight-seeing tour where you can experience the tastes and sounds of a unique area.

Bagel Tour Tidbits

Did you know? Chelsea market, which is within the Meatpacking district, is a destination for baked goods, fresh bagels, and fresh food altogether while it was initially a wholesale meat market.

Did you know? The High line was built in the 1930s to eliminate traffic congestion which is why it is elevated above the roads.

These are two historical neighborhoods with contrasting cultures, yet they share a myriad of similarities. Immigrating to New York, Lower Manhattan, during the same timeline of the ... more1800s, they quickly contributed to the cultural diversity, especially in architecture and gastronomy. Whether it is a historic tea parlor and the largest Buddhist temple in Chinatown or the oldest pizzeria and Americas oldest cheese shop in Little Italy, there is a lot to explore. Apart from Chinese dumplings and genuine dim sum, or Italian olives and Sicilian pastry, Ben can guide you to some fresh garlic bagel.

Bagel Tour Tidbits

Did you know? The Italian and Chinese were never fond of the bagel, in fact, Italy has its own version of the bagel called Tarallo.

Did you know? When Chinese gangs/tongs needed to escape police pursuits, they did so through tunnels which are nowadays used as office malls.

It is somewhat bizarre when a train terminal is considered as one of the top-ten touring sights in the world right? Well, there is a hidden gem inside this triumph of architecture ... morethat is over 100 years old - the food establishments or eateries lining the hallways! Some of the trains such as the 20th Century were considered to be the trendsetters for luxury-trains at the time, and it is no coincidence that this inspired the Grand Central Market. The lower level dining concourse, which is below ground, has a unique atmosphere considering that many tourists visit here to explore the food culture after they tour New York, which as you know, is a very expansive city. With a landmark status granted in 1976, it is no doubt that the standards for everything went a notch higher, including the tastes to savor!

Bagel Tour Tidbits

Did you know? In 1998 the Grand Central Terminal's lower concourse was converted into a lavish food promenade with exquisite eateries such as Zaro's Bakery for fresh bagels.

Did you know? At the Grand Central's main concourse, a zodiac painting that is upside down has a point of view similar to if you were looking down upon it from the heavens.
