We had a most enjoyable afternoon and have already recommended this tour (and our tour guide) to friends. Learned many new and interesting facts and ate more than is possible in one afternoon. VERY Excellent!

A 'must do' when in New York

This is the second time I've been on a food tour with Foods of New York and I can't recommend them highly enough. It's a great way to see a neighbourhood 'up close and personal'. Plus you get to sample some pretty amazing food. Once again, we had an incredibly personable and knowledgeable tour guide.

Our tour guide gave an informative and fascinating tour. We definitely recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history, culture and restaurants of NYC neighborhoods. The food sampled during the tour offered a nice cross-section of this ethnically diverse part of the city.

Our guide was the best. It is a great opportunity to learn about the history of the area in a fun environment. I feel you try some foods that you wouldn't normally try. I would like to try all the other tours. This was my second one and I enjoyed them both.

Neighborhood Gems+ Architecture + History + FOOD

Our guide (R__) was very knowledgeable and entertaining as well as a NY native who shared boyhood stories and family traditions. Tastings were so abundant that even dinner could be skipped. We learned about not only food preparation and ingredients, but also history of the neighborhoods and family establishments that have been in existence for decades. This is truly a good way to experience neighborhood living (away from the normal touristy celebrity chef promos). This is our second NYC food tour with this company and we recommend them highly.

This was an enjoyable tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, history & present. It is a lot of fun to see an area through the eyes of someone who truly enjoys where he is. The food was very good, too. I would definitely recommend this tour. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Wonderful way to learn about the surrounding area and preview some awesome places to eat. Our guide was great and it came across how much she enjoys doing tours and Diana had great local knowledge.
