This tour was excellent.

There were five of us from 35-65. Two of us took the tour before. We got the same tour guide person named Kurk. He made the tour. He is funny, and remembered all of our names. We can't say enough about the amount of food, the quality of food, and the tour guide. We all said, that Kurk made the tour. I hope I am spelling his name correctly. We were not disappointed the second time around. They actually added another course at the end, a pasta course. Kurk or Kirt went above and beyond to make our tour special. We all agreed he made the tour.

This tour was very well organized and presented. The stops were very well chosen in terms of variety. The foods we sampled were varied and most delicious! The guide was knowledgable, friendly, and most welcoming. I would highly recommend this tour for both locals and out of towners. All of our group was most satisfied!

Having grown up in NYC and remembering the lower West Side as an area not worth seeing, it was a nice surprise to tour Chelsea Market, taste a variety of superior foods, and then see Mario's and Morimoto's restaurants, in addition to seeing a West Village townhouse. It helped immensely that our guide, Kurt, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We experienced a complete lunch of varied and fresh, well prepared and delicious foods while making the rounds of many interesting and different stores. We have already recommended this tour to our friends in the New York area and those from here who are going to visit NYC.

As an ex-New Yorker, I can be somewhat jaded about tours since I don't consider myself a "tourist" even though I no longer live in the area. I had always wanted to tour the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District but had never gotten around to doing it. The Foods of NY tour fit my schedule and my wallet nicely so I decided to give it a try. What a wonderful decision! The guide was full of information, enthusiasm and helpful hints. I loved every minute -and every bite- of it!! I highly recommend this tour for anyone- visitor and resident alike.

Our tour guide was enthusiastic and full of stories and information about the things we were seeing. The tastings were wonderful and at the end of the tour I did not need another thing to eat. It is like eating a multi-course meal. I would highly recommned the tour. This is a culture lesson that is very educational!

Taste of NY Food Plus a Sampling of NY History

Thank you for one of the highlights of our entire NY trip. Four years ago we did the Greenwich tour and knew that we would enjoy this one also. Your company does a fabulous job of organizing, having enthusiastic guides, and presenting interesting facts. Next time we come we will do another tour. For your information we also did another walking tour with another company and it would not hold a candle to yours-difference as" daylight and dark." Thanks again for the BEST that New York has to offer. Pat
