We really enjoyed it. We were exposed to food we would have never tried - Indian street food - and it was terrific.

Great way to see the local spots

I have visited NYC numerous times, but this was my first time doing a food tour. I really enjoyed it (and so did every one of the 6 in my group). We saw neat local spots and were told about some of the shops and houses that we would have otherwise walked right by. I would definitely do it again. The only hesitation was that our tour guide did not seem to go out of the way to make it what the group wanted. She stuck to her speech and that was it. When we asked if she could inquire with the kitchen about ingredients, she said no. She also forgot two of our orders and wasn't really apologetic or even seemed to care when we asked to cancel them. I guess that just be the New Yorker in folks though ;) I would definitely do it again, but with a different spot so I could see even more. When we told our local friends who live in the area where we were brought, they agreed that those were the top spots so you know it's authentic.

We toured with Susan who was informative, upbeat and fun. We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about the area, as we did on your other two tours. We've been enthusiastically recommending you to our friends and several have taken your tours ... we've heard nothing but good from them all. We love your company and your guides. Keep it up, you are simply wonderful.

Our guide Susan did a great job introducing us to "The Village." It was more like a comfortable friend giving us incites into living life in The Village...relaxing, informative with lots of culinary "Ah, ahs." A must do if you want to have a better feeling for it all.
