10. New York: 3-Hour Prohibition Bars Tour

Learn the story of Prohibition in the United States, and hear about the nationwide ban on the sale, production, importation, and transportation of alcoholic beverages between 1920 and 1933. Led by rural Protestants and social Progressives in the Democratic and Republican parties, the dry movement was coordinated by the Anti-Saloon League and mandated under the 18th Amendment to the US Constitution. Many Americans resisted the move, and in cities such as New York, secret bars continued to operate, hidden from public view. Your guide will take you to some of the best-preserved of the 1920s hotspots, taking you back in time to the era of the Roaring '20s. Learn about the Volstead Act that defined the types of alcoholic beverages prohibited, and the local laws that were sometimes even more strict. Hear about the ratification of the 21st Amendment that repealed the 18th Amendment, and brought an end to Prohibition in December 1933.

What people are saying about New York City

This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. Vitaly was the best tour guide you could imagine. I’m a big gossip girl fan I was truly amazed about how much he knew! He knew all the insider facts only a true watcher could know. He took so many pictures and had so many fun ideas. He sung my favourite songs together with me on the streets of New Yorks upper east side. I loved every single minute of the tour. If i ever come back to New York I would book this tour again and AGAIN. I’m so thankful for this wonderful experience. Thank you Vitaly Xoxo Nele and Inga from Berlin

Helene was a fantastic tour guide. She answered questions and had a lot of enthusiasm for the history of the area. I loved that she included a few visual aids, and I really liked learning about the Dutch, where the name Wall St. came from, and the architect Stanford White. I would book all my tours with Experience First in the future. They hire quality people.

First time I have booked a lounge and I will be doing it every time now! Atmosphere was lovely, the food was amazing and they had excellent choices of drinks and cocktails. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. 10/10!!!
