Hi Kelley, Thanks for the great review and recommendation. One of the advantages of taking the tour in the summer are sampling fresh blueberry pierogis. They're a summer specialty and don't last long. I'm equally as glad your sister-in-law found the tour. Happy Summer. Greg

HI Bonk27~ One of my favorite parts of being a tour guide is connecting with the local shop keepers in their native languages, be it Polish, Italian and Spanish. It adds a small European town feel to GREG WALKS NYC, especially when combined with the...More
