Really enjoyed the tour

Raheem spoke clearly and gave us lots of information and history of the area. He made sure everyone was taken care of. One of our group is a vegetarian and she was able to experience wonderful and varied cuisine just like everyone else. In fact he took particular care to ensure she was well catered for. He added many interesting tips for eating well at a reasonable price as well as some shopping tips too. We all had a great time. Thank you Raheem.

It was so nice to see a quieter side of NY. We loved the food and our guide was very enthusiastic. Despite the rain, we had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Our Tour guide made the tour, he was so knowledgeable and gave so much history of the area, buildings and people who lived there. I think I would have liked more tastings as I have had on other tours with you.

But it was a wonderful experience and I would want the same guide again

it was so nice to see all the family run business and restaurants and that the

local people shop locally, not going to the big chain stores as so many of us do

the food was great and our tour guide was also, I would recommend this tour

to all

Demonstrating Good Taste!

I have taken several out-of-town guests on many of these tours; the tours have all been thoroughly enjoyable, informative and culinarily delightful. However during the last couple of tours the guides, at the outset, have mentioned that gratutities are willingly accepted! I and my guests have found this overt tipping commentary to be rather distasteful and contrary to the character of the event. Maybe a 'tipping' note on your web page (if one exisits I apologise) would be more tactful.

I will return.

Thank you,

The tour was a great experience. It not only gave you a taste of various NY foods (which were all awesome), but a great history of the area and how it came about. I LOVED IT! If I get back to NY I will definitly do another tour with you.

Highly Recommend

Even though it was coldish and drizzling rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Raheem was very personable and knowledgeable, sharing history and insights about the area. The food tastings were really good, giving you a diverse sampling of some of the foods available in this area. It was a really good way to see a part of the "real" New York. We look forward to going on the other tours on our next visit to New York.
