This tour was completely amazing, not only did we get to experience a very diverse menu we also learned about the history and architecture of the area. Our tour guide Raheem was quite knowledgeable. He really knows his history, everything came from memory. He had no prompts. I totally recommend this tour and am looking forward to trying the others out.

We had a great afternoon on the food tour. Our guide was fantastic and we loved all the history of neighborhood throughout the day. We found so many new places to try and can't wait to return to New York. I have made recommendations to my friends in New York about what they are missing. You will not be disappointed.

Went on this tour expecting to be eating too much food and thats all. Turned out to be pretty interesting because they also explained the history of the places and we got to have a nice walk. The food tour won't get you stuffed but you will have enough food to be satisfied. In addition you get a better sense of places you may want to come back to in the near future.

Shortly after my group of friends went to Peter Luger! Mistake or best idea ever ?!

An Excellent Experience in Food and Culture

Our entire tour was most enjoyable! Our guide was quite knowlegeable about the area, giving us history and interesting tidbits about who had lived there through the years. The food at each stop was very delicious and the portions were much larger than I expected. I would start out more slowly with the eating next time!! I didn't need to finish EVERYTHING!

Susan was knowledgeable, personable and a good communicator. The tour was tasty, tasteful and terrific. We experienced a nice variety of food selections and restaurants. Would definitely recommend. Kudos to you Susan for handling the "irritated New Yorker dog owner so tactfully"!
