An excellent complement to any visit to NY

I joined up on this tour on a recommendation from a colleague and found this tour to be one of the highlights of my first trip to NY. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided information not just for the local food, but for the neighbourhood as well. The guide's enthusiasm for the tour and great humour made for a very pleasant experience. I will definitely be recommending this tour to others.

My wife and I joined the group of c.16 on a Thursday morning. The tour guide (Carrie Anne) was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and likeable. We enjoyed 8 tastings in a good variety of establishments spread around the three or four blocks in the neighbourhood, and had no need of lunch at the end of it! We both felt the tour had provided us with a real taste of the area, not just in food but also in the history and make up of the locality. This was excellent value for the money spent, and well worth recommending to others.

Great food, very informative, 1st class tour guide

I got the tickets as a gift to my girlfriend for christmas and came into the experience not knowing what to expect. Having traveled extensively, including two trips to Europe with tour groups, I've been on many guided tours, and must say this was one of the most enjoyable I've ever experienced. The tour itself was great -- the food was eclectic and delicious and the restaurants were culturally and historically compelling.

What set this tour apart for me, though, was our tourguide, Sephrah (sp?). She was as knowledgable as she was hilarious as she was engaging. And her knowledge extended far beyond the culinary aspects of the tour and into the hisory and culture of the restaurants and neighborhood, which I just loved.

Highly recommending to friends and family.

Barri was knowlegeable and interesting. She was pleasant and so intent on delivering a wonderful culinary experience. I really enjoyed the history that she included, from food to architecture. I am an enthusiastic cook and appreciate when others take great pride in the food they produce. This tour was filled with wonderful food finds. I would give this a big thumbs up.

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this tour. Our tour guide (Kurt) was absolutely brilliant and made the tour memorable for us. He was fun, extremely informative and very upbeat. We learnt a lot, ate a lot and laughed a lot. What more could we ask for. Terrific district, perfect tour. Thank you!

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.
