Our tour guide Diana was awesome! Great sense of humor and had some great history to share along the way.

Each restaraunt was outstanding! Loved the fact that we had many opportunities to actually sit down and the food was delicious. They did no skimp, they gave us actual meals and nice size portions ! Well worth the money and then some! I would do this tour again and highly recommend it to any tourist or New Yorker!

This tour was so much fun. I loved the information our guide, Susan Volchok, provided about the area. The food was totally delicious at all locations. My favorites were the pizza, the chocolate tart and the pasta, however, I loved everything. My husband and my 19 year old son also enjoyed it. Would definitely sign up for another tour!

The best of NYC!

This was a great tour. Raheem was full of energy and was very knowledgable on not only the food we were eating but also on the area we were walking around. We found out so much more than just using a guide book and it was SO much fun! He was very inclusive with everyone and tried very hard to give everyone a good time. I would definitely do this again!

The best food tour experience!

Having enjoyed food tours in France, Spain, San Francisco, New Orleans, and with this being our 5th food tour in NYC over the years, I would have to say that this was hands down the best experience! Raheem was our tour guide par excellence and while we did enjoy all the tastings that were included, Raheem definitely added to our enjoyment of the entire experience as he was a very knowledgeable guide, had an awesome sense of humor, and so easily managed to establish a rapport with the entire group. It's fortunate that we skipped breakfast because there was so much food, unlike our tour the day before (with a different company) that left us quite hungry when it was over. We appreciated the glass of wine and the tasty mojito that we were able to order (for an extra charge) at two of the stops. Plenty of opportunity for bathroom breaks too. I wouldn't hesitate to do this tour all over again!!!

Perfect way to see a neighborhood in NYC

This was my fourth tour with foods of NY and it was informative and fun and a great way to sample the food along the way. It's such a pleasure to see the neighborhood throughout the eyes of a native guide and get ideas for a return visit.

Our tour guide, Raheem(sp?), was great! Cute personality, funny, and knowledgable. We lucked out with a gorgeous, sunny day and thoroughly enjoyed all the awesome food. Much more food than we expected! I would highly recommend this tour!
