Although, I'm a native new yorker, the tour was informative and the food was good. I may go back to some of these places.

Our tour guide was enthusiastic, friendly, and knew her stuff. At 3 hours, the tour was just the right length, and very well organized. Eating spots were unexpected--I had never been to any of them, and we've already planned to return. The snacks were abundant and the pacing was perfect. My only complaint was that there was a little too much information and speculation about real estate prices.

The tour is just as described. Our guide, Barri, provided a lot of information, kept us moving, and introduced us to great places to eat. NYC is overwhelming with so much to see and do, so it was very nice to have someone else in charge of the day. We will definitely book another tour next time we visit this fabulous city.

Our guide was so smart and funny. He was very knowledgable about food, architecture, local history and culture. I've already recommended this company to so many people. It's our third tour with them and each has been outstanding. Thank you for a great afternoon in the East Village.

It was a great day. Knowledgeable guide (Barri) and trainee. I really didn't expect it to be as informative as it was on top of all the great food. We enjoyed it from beginning to end.
