When are your tours available? How far in advance should I book?
Our Shopping & Tasting Tour is available on Saturdays only. Please book well in advance, especially in the fall. If you want to come for the holiday season, we recommend booking in September.
We accept a small number of private tours during the week (Tuesday - Friday) by appointment.
How long is the tour, what does it include, how much walking is there? How about special diets?
Each tour is about 2.5 hours long. The price of $95 includes all the on-the-go tastings as well as the seated tastings at Mario's. We cover about 6 city blocks of walking over 1.5 hours. There are some places to sit along the way, but not many.
Please note any allergies you may have when purchasing your ticket. We cannot accommodate vegan or gluten-free diets.
How do I get to Arthur Avenue in the Bronx? Where do I park?
All tours meet in front of the Arthur Avenue Retail Market at 2344 Arthur Avenue.
If you're coming via public transportation, do not take the subway, but instead take Metro North's Harlem line from Grand Central Station to the Fordham station. This is a commuter rail which makes stops in the Bronx before entering Westchester.
If you're coming via car, set your GPS to 2356 Hoffman Street to go directly to the Municipal Parking lot.
If you're coming via taxi, GPS will direct your car to the loading dock entrance of the Market on Hughes Avenue. If you're meeting a tour, make sure you are standing at the Arthur Avenue entrance.
