I liked the guide a lot but this kind of tour didn't get me too excited. I would've liked more in-depth and coherent history on the area.

If this is not ones first time to be in NY and one has covered all the tourists sites, this tour is a great way to learn more about the NY's featured neighborhood and the gems that it offers.

The only negative of the experience was that the food samples, while being delicious' were small and to be eaten on the street. The twice we sat down even briefly were much more "civilised"

I was surprised by the wide variety of food experiences, by the depth of the food and architectural information given, by the ease and fluidity of the tour. The three hours were packed with enrichment, culinary and otherwise.

Our guide, Heather, was full of enthusiasm and cheerfulness. She gave out interesting information...the food stops were good, except for the 2nd pizza place which was so-so.

Good Food and A History Lesson

Although Foods of New York wasn't responsible, the weather couldn't have been better. A beautiful afternoon and our tour host, Heather, was such a delight. She was informative, energetic and fun. The foods sampled painted a good picture of the neighborhood. This is my second experience with Foods of New York and I'm looking forward to another tour.

Fun Learning and Eating Experience

Had a great time on the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area, had an outgoing, friendly personality and had a lot of fun facts.

There was more food to taste than I expected, which was a good thing. You certainly were not hungry by the end of the tour.

The only thing that was a little awkward, at times, was trying to eat some of the samplings while standing on the sidewalk with no place to set anything down. There were at least two of the establishments that allowed space for sitting while tasting.

Murray's was particularly awkward, standing in the back of the store. This was my second trip. The first time when we got to Murray's, we were allowed to sit upstairs at the tables and enjoy the cheeses, etc., which was much more comfortable.

They were very accommodating to persons with food allergies, which was great.

I would recommend the tour to friends and family who were going to New York.
