entertaining, well-informed tour

Our tour guide was enthusiastic, friendly, and knew her stuff. At 3 hours, the tour was just the right length, and very well organized. Eating spots were unexpected--I had never been to any of them, and we've already planned to return. The snacks were abundant and the pacing was perfect. My only complaint was that there was a little too much information and speculation about real estate prices.

As a family with 2 teenage boys, w've found an activity that we all enjoy when visiting NYC. We have experienced 4 of the food tours, and all of them have been fantastic. Always great food, and you learn so much about the history of the neighborhood, including fun facts about the people who live and work there. Highly recommend!

My wife and I enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it. Not only was it informative but it was also delicious. We ate our way through the streets of the Heart of the Village. Our guide, Susan, was so full of so much information and she had the best personality. Looking forward to our next visit!!

The tour is just as described. Our guide, Barri, provided a lot of information, kept us moving, and introduced us to great places to eat. NYC is overwhelming with so much to see and do, so it was very nice to have someone else in charge of the day. We will definitely book another tour next time we visit this fabulous city.

Our guide was so smart and funny. He was very knowledgable about food, architecture, local history and culture. I've already recommended this company to so many people. It's our third tour with them and each has been outstanding. Thank you for a great afternoon in the East Village.

It was a great day. Knowledgeable guide (Barri) and trainee. I really didn't expect it to be as informative as it was on top of all the great food. We enjoyed it from beginning to end.
