Our tour guide was just fantastic! He made the streets come alive with history and excitement for what took place in this region. The food was wonderful. His description of the food and its preparation were fantastic. Thank you for a great day! I have already been back to several of the establishments and have booked a cooking class at Monty's!

Another great way to see New-York

I would highly recommend that tour . Please do not eat before because there is a lot of great food to taste and you do not want to miss any of it. They take you to places your would never find out on your own unless you are a real local and also the historical info about the area your are visiting makes it very interesting . For sure on my next visit to New-York I will do another tasting tour of a different area. It is a great way to discover another side of the city.

I will highly recommend it to everyone I know.

We found this tour on the internet, and since we both love food, we thought it would be fun at the least. It was awesome, and an incredible value! We liked it so much that we booked the Chinatown tour WHILE we were on this one!

Lots of fun, food, and information.

The tour of Chelsea was very informative and delicious. Our guide was enthusiastic and knew her material. The tour supplied ample food and treats. I wish the cupcake wasn't the first stop though. It is hard to eat a big sweet treat first thing and then continue on to more real food. I loved the lobster bisque at the Lobster store and the oxtail pasta at the last restaurant. Well worth the time and money.

I really enjoyed the food tour and highly recommend it to those who like to eat a lot! I did not expect to eat until I was nearly sick, but I did. Raheem was a fun, energetic tour guide. It was very interesting to see the old neighborhoods and to eat foods from old established family-owned restaurants. The only draw-back was that it was really hot and we were on our feet for so long.
