Nice knowledgable guide.... Super friendly with enough humor without being cheesy.... Good stories about movies, history, pop culture of the area.... Couldn't believe the size of the samples- have done this with a different company and the samples were bite sized.... Great variety of food and I had picky adult children with me and they liked 90% of what we tasted so thats a huge win...took the tour to show them what a neighborhood in Manhattan would look like vs Times Square and for me to get more familiar with the area so I can go back and eat there... It accomplished both in a fun way where we learned a lot

I highly recommend doing a food tour as one of your "must do's" in New York City! We are from Canada and this was our 3rd trip to the big apple and the food tour is always a highlight! Our tour guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and the food was out of this world! ☺

This was a great way to learn more about a community-it's history, people and food. We enjoyed it so much, we went back another day to explore on our own. There is a lot of food-we were stuffed. It's mostly walking, but with some sitting, and the time flew by. We look forward to checking out the other tours on future visits.

Food was great. Lovers of Bob Dylan rejoice!

The food was amazing! The sights we saw were interesting but there was a big focus on pop culture that I didn't get, I must be too young. It felt like everytime we turned a corner, we got more information on Bob Dylan, and I can't name one of his songs. Stallone movies, Reiner movies, just old movies that I have not seen were constantly mentioned. My parents recommended this tour for me, and I can see why they loved it.

Older people, you will probably enjoy. Younger people, the food is good, but you may be able to find something else

Although the food was amazing ( and there is LOTS of it so don't eat before), our favourite part was learning about the area from a great tour guide (and history of the city) - and we had the chance to ask all questions and have them answered very thoroughly! She was well prepared and very professional - I would recommend the tour 100%.
