A Taste Of The Sweet Life

manhattancartoonWhether you need a date idea, girls’ day out or new way to explore the city, Sugartooth Tours is a great way to sweeten things up. The walking dessert tours take guests on tasty and educational routes throughout Manhattan neighborhoods, where they can learn more about the history and confectionery delights hidden within them.

The tours accommodate three to 16 people, aiming for a conversational feel where the guides can educate guests on the sites around them, as well as the background of the locales they visit. The tours occur every weekend throughout the year, showcasing the best bakeries and dessert spots in neighborhoods like Hell’s Kitchen, the theater district and West Village.

Currently Sugartooth is taking reservations for their Sweeter Than Sugar Valentine’s Day tour. On the tour, which features six stops in West Village and Chelsea, guests can enjoy delights such as a half-pound cookie from City Cakes and macarons from Sugar and Plumm.
