This is the tour for bagel lovers and anyone who wants to make, bake and sample a sumptuous variety of bagels, spreads, and desserts from NYC’s legendary bagel purveyor, Ess-a-Bagel while learning about the legendary area of Herald Square, home to Macy’s, Pennsylvania Station, Koreatown, the Empire State Building and Ess-a-Bagel, a family run New York institution since 1976.

On this tour, you’ll have the rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and into the kitchen to watch master bagel rollers do their thing and even give rolling a whirl yourself. You’ll learn the bagel making process from start to finish and the storied history of bagels (and lox) from “The Bagel Expert” himself, Ben Wagenberg. A quintessential feast for the mind and the tummy, you’ll be sampling and savoring the best of the best from the best including freshly baked bagels of all kinds, tempting spreads, appetizing salads and decadent cookies and cakes. And everyone on the tour receives half a dozen bagels to take home with them!

The Ess-a-Bagel Making, Baking, & Tasting Experience is about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Please come hungry and wear comfortable shoes.

Tickets must be purchased in advance!

Meet at Ess-a-Bagel, 108 West 32nd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues.
