A 'must do' in New York
Sun, Sep 28  12:00 PM LizzieT58 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This tour my second experience with Food Tours of New York and it was as great as the first! This is one of the was the best ways to visit areas in New York. Our guide provided us with insight into the history of the East Village that was knowledgeable and witty. The food samples were very generous and delicious and the hospitality of all of the host restaurants was exceptional. The people of the Village were most generous in sharing their home with us, often stopping to add their perspectives to our guide's commentary. It was a great afternoon. I will share my experience with my friends and will continue to book one of these tours every time I visit New York.

This tour is highly recommended. It gives a wonderful insight to the area in a way that you just cannot get any other way. Not only are you taken to see some first class eateries, with very delicious samples to eat, but you hear about the stories behind the scenes. We stayed in the area for 2 weeks, and would never have appreciated or understood the place if we had not done this tour. Our tour guide, Barri, was wonderful and knowledgeable and the pace just right.

I had a group of friends who went on this food tour and everyone had a great time, very informative and delicious! We loved each food establishment and even requested vegetarian which was deliciously accommodated! I look at reviews before I book any trip and with that in mind, I highly recommend this tour!

Booked this tour with food in mind. Actually enjoyed the guide and his knowledge of the area more than the food. That is not to say the food was not good, it was good.
