We found the tour to be fun and educational. All the food served was delicious and we would take a second tour with this group. Our guide was did a good job and the pace would work for people of all ages.

My children (12 &16) had the day off of school and it was nice to share this time with them. The food was great and had a variety of flavors. Would have been even better if it didn't rain but that was not in our control. The guide was very nice and shared her knowledge. I would do this again.

Our guide Susan was warm, charming, knowledgeable and fun. I felt more like a guest and she was my host. Stops and food samples were well chosen and delicious. We wished that we had done this at the beginning of our visit to New York so we could return to dine. Unfortunately we were at the end of our stay. We enjoyed the other folks in the group. The pace was great and we enjoyed the information Susan shared about the area, buildings, food, etc. Highly recommended!

What a great day! Toured an historic area of New York on foot. Dined at some exciting restaurants in the area and learned how they actually sculpted the area into what it is now. Expanded my palate along the way.

Our tour guide Barri was wonderful and was so knowledgeable! Although we had to "keep to a schedule"...she made it seamless and not pressured. We thoroughly enjoyed our THIRD Foods of NY Tour!!!

Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. She had lots of little snippets and stories to tell which livened up the tour. All of the food we had (and there was a lot!) was excellent with a great variety of different cuture's cuisines, including Indian, Italian, Cuban, French. Many vouchers for further discounts given. A great trip around Washington Square Park. Would have liked to walk a little further between tastings, but can't really complain.

Informative & Delicious

Our tour guide Diana gave us a fast paced and comprehensive history of the area. She highlighted places of interest, background about the politics of the neighborhood and it's current residents. I would highly recommend the tour and Diana as its guide in a NYC minute.
