Which tour should I choose?
Our signature tour is the Shopping & Tasting Tour. We offer it 5 days a week and it has been crafted to introduce you to the best bites in the neighborhood. You’ll meet the shopkeepers and hear stories along the way. At the end of the tour, you’ll be able to navigate the neighborhood like a local. On-the-go tastings are equivalent to a medium-sized lunch.
If you’re interested in the shops and Arthur Avenue restaurants, choose the Pizza, Pasta & Parm Tour. Offered on Friday and Saturday afternoons, this is a tour for Italian food lovers with big appetites. This is an ideal way to eat before a Yankee game or a summer Friday afternoon before an evening visit to the New York Botanical Garden or Bronx Zoo.
Most shops are closed on Sunday so Italian Sunday was designed to let you dine with the locals. It’s a 3-course family style meal at 3 different locations including a quick visit to see the pasta shop where our main course was made. This tour is ideal for groups.
Where does the tour begin?
All of our tours start outside in front of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market at 2344 Arthur Avenue. If you're navigating by GPS, make sure to use the address 2344 Arthur Avenue as Google often loads the address of the loading dock on Hughes Avenue.
How do I get to Arthur Avenue?
Take Metro North's Harlem Line to the Fordham Station. (18 minutes from Grand Central Station. We strongly recommend this route vs. the subway.
Parking is available on the street or in the municipal parking lot directly across the street from the Arthur Avenue Retail Market (2344 Arthur Avenue.) Enter the municipal parking lot at 2356 Hoffman Street.
I got here early and I really need to use the bathroom. Where is it?
The bathroom is in the far, right corner of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market, just behind Mike's Deli. It's upstairs.
I'm running late! What should I do?
Send a text to 646-670-7092 and let us know how far behind you're running.
How much walking will we do?
Our 2.5 hour tour covers about 8 city blocks of walking. Always wear comfortable shoes and check the weather ahead of time.
Will the tour be cancelled due to bad weather?
Our tours run rain or shine. However, if tours are cancelled under extreme circumstances like a blizzard or hurricane, we will contact you to move your tour to another day. For that reason, please make sure your booking includes a phone number or email address where we can contact you while you're traveling.
Can I shop during the tour or should I wait until the food tour is complete?
We encourage you to shop during the tour. Moreover, some things like the white chocolate bread at Madonia or the buratta at Joe's Deli might be sold out by the time you make it back. However, if you want to make a custom order at a butcher shop, that would be best done after the tour. Bring a large shopping bag or backpack as you won't be able to resist taking a few goodies home, even if you are traveling from far outside the New York area.
How many people will be on the tour?
The maximum size for our Shopping & Tasting Tour is 12 guests. Private groups may be larger.
Are your tours accessible for people with physical disabilities?
Do you cater to people with dietary restrictions?
When you book your trip, please make a note of any allergies we should know about. Please note, though, that in some destinations there may be limited or no options for dietary needs. This tour includes samples of bread, pastry, cheese and meat. We have had many happy vegetarian and pork-free guests on our trips, but vegan and gluten-free guests may not be able to enjoy the full scope of samples. We do not offer substitutions.
The price of the daily group tour and the private tour per person is the same. So what's the difference?
Private tours require a minimum of 4 people to book, otherwise the price is the same.
Do you offer this tour in any other languages?
Yes, in Italian, Portuguese and Spanish! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
What if I need to cancel?
Tours may be refunded up to 48 hours prior to the tour. Private tour cancellations forfeit the deposit. For our daily tour, you can cancel up to 48 hours prior to the tour's start time. If something happens at the last minute, send an email to email@example.com and we’ll do our best to re-schedule your tour.
