Wonderful tour!

The food tour was one of the highlights of my New York City visit. Susan was a wonderful guide: warm, funny, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about her city. We visited more restaurants and shops than I expected, had delicious samples at each, and got a good overview of the neighborhood. It was a cold day, but we had plenty of chances to warm up as we popped into various establishments. I hope to visit New York City again, and would certainly take another Foods of New York tour.

We had a great time. Our daughter gave us this great afternoon as a X-mas gift. It is a super idea because we spent time with her, and we met new, nice people, including Susan, our guide. The food samplings were delicious. We loved hearing some of the history of the area too. We are definitely going to bring friends to NYC to sample these yummy restaurants and we will also try a different tour sometime in the future. Thanks, Susan for making our day special too.

This tour gave us a good overview of the area. I liked that about as much as the food! I did love all of the food we tried, and I know I would never have tried many of the food items we were offered on my own. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and we spent more time after the tour visiting recommended spots. Loved it!!

All the food was great. Gives you the best opportunity for local cuisine to revisit for a full meal.

Susan was terrific!

Loved Susan as a guide. She was engaging, interesting, passionate and knowledgable!

Didn't like the offered bites as much as past tours with this company but more a reflection of the restaurant efforts than the tour group, is my guess? The pace of the tour Is not hard on your feet and plenty of options to seek a restroom if needed. Susan was diplomatic and kind but firm when some of the guests tried to take advantage by including extra friends arriving halfway thru the tour. Thanks!

A little long and while our tour guide was very knowledgeable, he was also very long winded.

Great tour!

We really enjoyed the food tour. It was very informative about the area and the food was great. I wish we had done the tour earlier in our trip to New York. There were many places on the tour that I would love to have visited for a full meal. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was great with the group. I was pleasantly surprised that there were more locals on the tour than out of town tourists such as our group. The people in our group will all definitely do another food tour in future visits.

This was our second Food Tasting Tour and it was fabulous. The company was pleasant, the guide was a ball of energy and so full of interesting tidbits about the area, and the food was GREAT! We hardly noticed what a cold day it was with all that delicious warm food!

We did this tour as a family (parents and 20 somethings). I think at any age this was an enjoyable food tour. Learned alot from the tour guide who was very knowledgeable not only about food but New York in General. This was our third tour and we look forward to this as an annual Thanksgiving event.
