Traveler Tips


  • "Dress code is not an issue - you can wear jeans/shorts and smart trainers." See review
  • "There is a lot of walking, As there was 11 of us, it took way too long to get drinks ordered - most of the bars had only one member of staff making up cocktails, and complex ones at that." See review
  • "It was an enjoyable tour and I recommend it, but more space, seating and inexpensive drink options need to be provided for the tour group." See review

Disappointed

This was not what we thought it would be. The guide was very informative but we were disappointed with the actual locations. Just little bars behind a closed door. Not even themed

The tour didn't get off to the best of starts as Alex's Tours hadn't conveyed the booking to the guide, who was consequently 40 minutes late. Then the first establishment was shut. Thankfully Sam was a great tour guide and we still had an awesome night.

Interesting locations and knowledgeable guide!

This tour took us to some really cool places. Alex was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable. My only real complaint was that we signed up for the West Village but were automatically booked to the Lower East Side without telling us. I had to inquire and I learned that there were not enough people for the West Village and also there was a good chance that a venue might be privately booked which would ruin the tour. Totally understandable reason but I'm glad I inquired otherwise I might have been very confused. My only other advice is for Alex to give the group a little bit of time on our own in each venue. He had amazing knowledge about all things prohibition but it was nonstop and we didn't really have time to relax and enjoy the venue and the mood of the locations.

Not what was expected

We met in a very dark park and it wasn't clearly marked so we didn't feel safe. We expected some history and actual bars from the early 1900's. There was no history given and the bars were modern bars decorated to look like early 1900's decor. Very hard to get a drink and then they were extremely expensive. It just wasn't what we expected, we made the best of it but disappointed.

Our tour guide Alex was very informative and entertaining. The history of Prohibition is fascinating and was discussed in detail. The places we visited were a wonderful representation of the 50+ speakeasies in NYC and will make you want to explore further. Well done.

Had an absolute blast. Alex was really knowledgeable and the speakeasy bars were really cool. Dress code is not an issue - you can wear jeans/shorts and smart trainers. Group was a good size (9 people). Would recommend this tour, although the cocktails we ordered were not always nice and were quite pricy! When we booked it, the tour we originally wanted wasn't running and then we had a bit of going back and forward with Alex to finalise the itinerary & time. But it all got sorted in the end and didn't dampen our experience. Would recommend.
