From the first 2 minutes when our guide, Kirk, had memorised 12 participants names and their country of origin, (as well as the 4 people - and their country of origin - WHO HADN'T EVEN ARRIVED!!!), he had us "eating" out of his hand. His enthusiasm was infectious, his local and food knowledge extraordinary, and his delivery flawless. A true professional. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in this area of New York - the three hours flew by and we all wanted more!

This was my 4th tour with this company and I have been VERY pleased every time. I think this was one of my favorites. My husband went with me and he absolutely loved it as well!!!

Absolutely fantastic, great fun and great food

This tour is amazing - our 18yo hip dude son, his elder equally cool dude surfie type brother and their aging parents found this to be an unusual family experience because we all loved it (and no one was lying about that!). The food, the places and the humour, stories, wit and knowledge of Kurt our guide made it such a laugh. We had thought 3 hours would be too long but no way - it's not long enough. And when the "spiel" says you'll eat you better believe it; you will eat, so don't eat before you go and you won't need much for dinner either! This tour is everything everyone says it is and much more. During the tour we checked out Del Posto, a truly beautiful upmarket restaurant, and the husband and I went back there a few days later for dinner - OMG, the best dinner I have ever had (and that's saying something). So ... put this on your "must do" list.

Really fun but could be improved

Marketplace was great, really enjoyed all establishments. Guide was very informative and entertaining and also attentive. Improvements I would suggest offering something to drink with tastings. A bottle of water seemed cheap. And last stop, although nice, could have offered a bit more. It would have been better to end tour there with a light lunch. Could have included salad and bread at least. I would have gladly purchased a glass of wine to finish off.

fabulous tour and tour guides

Our tour was not a "group" but a mixture of families and individuals, male and female, ages were probably 12-50, from all parts of the country. May not be very entertaining for young children. If you are a "foody", you will love. Our tour guide, Cindy, was really fabulous. Lots of history, good food and fun. Will definitely try one of the other tours the next time we are in town. Have been to NYC on numerous occassions and had never taken an official tour of anything in the city. This was definitely something worth doing.

Kurt made it special. He is truly a professional. I will recommend it to others we know coming the the Big Apple. We had 3 days and 2 nights and this was the hightlight of the entire trip! Thanks to Kurt and the rest. Pat Layton (a foodie) Frankfort, Ky.

our tour guide was hilarious!!! our group ranged from age 21-55 and everyone had a great time. its a great way to learn the history of different areas of NYC as well as eat great food all along the way! you get to see and do things that you would not have the opportunity to do without being in this tour. I HIGHLY recommend this company- I have done Chelsea and the Greenwich Village tour and they both were fabulous!
