This was a great tour. The tour guide was very lively and really knew the area and the people. I loved the information on the history and the food was amazing. We went back to one of the restaurants afterwards because it was so good.

Savour the Flavour of NYC

An amazing experience to enjoy with friends. Always informative. We enjoyed the history of the neighbourhood and learning it's evolution to what we saw today. The walking tour allowed us to get up close and personal with New Yorkers - they walk fast and we got in the way more than once. The guides are always passionate about NYC AND the food. Raheem was no exception! His descriptions were accurate and made us anticipate the next food item. This tour also has the most samplings of all the tours this company runs. I'd encourage EVERYONE including New Yorkers to take it. For those that have trouble walking, it's only about 6 blocks of walking with rest spots all along the way. We would do this tour again. It's great value for the money.

This was our third walking tour in New York and it didn't disappoint. Susan was very informative and the tour covered alot of ground. Food was excellent and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed, would recommend it, and because of it, we'll probably stay in the area next time we visit.

It was my first time to NYC and my husband and friends had been before. The food tour was most definitely one of the highlights for all of us! Our guide, Rahim, was awesome! Incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and had good energy that could carry any group. The food was fantastic and included a little of everything. Do not, I repeat, do not, eat before the tour, they feed you plenty!

Eat like a local

This was my 3rd food tour with Foods of New York. This is great chance to eat like a local. The tour guides are very informative and they are great at keeping everybody engaged in the tour. Do not eat breakfast ahead of time. You eat a lot of food on the tours. You eat so much that you will not want dinner. As a result, this is a great value! I highly, highly recommend this tour for everybody.
