What you'll do

Discover Long Island City with locals! Guests will be taken on a tour of this incredible neighborhood to the best places to enjoy food and drink (bites) and our famous views (sights)! We’ll start the tour with a walk down LIC’s main restaurant strip where guests will get the opportunity to indulge in some classic NYC local snacks. Along the way, you’ll get to experience the novelty of this booming neighborhood while learning a bit about its history and evolution to a mini metropolis. We’ll then make our way towards the stunning LIC waterfront to take in the sights and explore some of the best places for photo opportunities in front of the iconic Manhattan skyline backdrop! We are 1 subway stop from Grand Central Terminal which is in the heart of midtown NYC. A 5-minute train ride, and you've arrived! For more information, pictures, and updates follow us on Instagram! @lic_sights_bites_tour FYI - if you don't see a preferred time slot available to book a tour, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.
