Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Walking foodie-tour outstanding!

We (two couples) enjoyed this tastey, good-natured, info-packed walking food tour so much we'll look for this activity anywhere else we travel. Our guide was so in touch with the people, the history, the food and the facinating cultural histories of the neighbourhoods we toured that we were blown away. We have an understanding of New York now that we couldn't have found in any better way. We now consider ourselves Canadian-New Yorkers. Each tasting was delicious and our guide was so into describing the ingredients and preparation of each bit that our mouths watered. We'd do it again in a New York minute!

Interesting, fun, satisfying food.

This was my third food tour with FoodsOfNY purchased through ZERVE. It was easy to setup the tour but not as easy to find the group meetup in New York City, since it actually was inside the restaurant instead of outside on the street - outside is better in my opinion. Everyone can see the group from a distance, for one thing. Secondly, we were dodging the wait staff inside. And finally, that restaurant was NOT on our tour, which I found pointless and distracting. The tour however was very good and everyone in our extended family enjoyed it. We ate significantly more food on this tour than the previous two, which was very nice, considering it is billed as a food tour. I will likely take future tours with FoodsOfNY. This remains an excellent way to spend 3+ hours walking around New York City, and everyone else in the group seems to have felt the same way, judging by the number of tips we gave our tour guide at the end.

Highlight of my trip

Foods of New York is an interesting name for this tour. Upon reflection on the tour I would say that; 1) I definitely ate well 2) I learnt a heck of alot about New York's history, character and hidden gems 3) I was really impressed by the tour and especially our guide Diana who was knowledgable, friendly and helped make the tour a highlight of our trip.

We have taken 2 other tours with your group and found this one to present better and more diverse food offerings and an enthusiastic and well informed guide. Despite rain, we had a terrific time.

Excellent Overall Experience

This tour provided an excellent neighborhood overview with information on history, famous personalities and restaurants. Printed information made it easy to keep follow where you were and for future reference. Walking pace was very comfortable. Food was excellent in variety and quality and restaurant staff that we interacted with, including bartender at the meeting place, were very friendly. Guide was knowledgeable and personable. Good tour for out of town visitors as well as locals.
