New York City is full of entertainment, whether it is at one of the nightclubs, or on the streets. As you stroll along you will see live mimes, conga players, dancers, violinists, and musicians playing various instruments which are not known to most of us such as the didgeridoo, which is an authentic Australian wind instrument. The local street performers are a highly talented group throughout the city.

One thing for sure is that New York City has much more to offer than shopping in Manhattan or visits to various historical sites. There are activities, and tours for everyone. If you want to go it alone, there is plenty for you to enjoy at your own leisure.

Some of the most enjoyable activities is the special tours for News Year Eve, and other holidays. The holiday tours need to be planned and booked in advance. The next time you consider a unique vacation, remember there is so much more to New York City than tall buildings and ferry rides.

Review: Sweet Tooth Tour

Source: Here is one review of the Sweet Tooth Tour, along with others 

You may want to read one of reviews for this unique experience: I went on this tour almost over a year ago now and I still recommend it to all my friends and family traveling to NYC. 

My girlfriend and I spent a 4 days taking in everything NYC had to offer, museums, Broadway, shopping and all the large attractions but we also did the sweet tooth tour which we had never heard of and it was the highlight of our trip. We got to taste a variety of food, see different ends of Manhattan which we would have missed out on and really got to "eat like a new yorker" as all of the stops on our tour are not along the typical tourist areas. This tour is definitely worth the time and the money. It’s a must do!
