Highlight of our long weekend!

We were lucky to have a cool but sunny day for our tour. I wouldn't recommend walking around in wet / foul weather. Three hours seems to be a perfect length of time for the walk as you don't get to sit down and rest except at two of the six stops. Wear comfortable shoes! Our guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable about New York and food(!) and she spoke very well to our group. The four of us would take this tour again.

We were wondering how our tasting tour would be ,as it had been raining all morning and predicted throughout the day. It turned out to be a FABULOUS time ! The unique diversity of foods we tasted was so good and our guide pointed out other good places for us to return to. We can hardly wait to go on another Zerve next year when we get together

Our guide, Susan, was knowledgeable and very interesting. The food was plentiful and delicious. I wish we had done a tour at the start of our visit so we could have returned to one of the restaurants for a meal.

This was our 2nd Zerve walking food tour (first was Chicago) and its a great way to learn about a neighborhood, from both an historical and food related standpoint. There was a lot of very good food, and we really enjoyed the variety. From Italian to Indian, etc. The quantity was more than enough for lunch for us. And was quite a bit more than our Chicago tour. Barri was our guide and she was very good. We will look forward to doing another tour the next time we return to NYC. Thanks !!!

Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history and responsive to our questions. Her presentation of the food served from the respective restaurants was entertaining and assured us that we would enjoy the offerings (which we four did). We will be utilizing the services again at Thanksgiving.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I was not familiar with this area of Manhattan, so it was great to be exposed to it. I will definitely go back to enjoy it another time. The tour was a great mix of food and history of the area. Our guide was knowledgable and friendly. I want to go on another one of the tours in the near future.
