Sephra is awesome

This is our third Foods of NY tour - Chelsea, Nolita, and this. All 3 were wonderful tours, good food, good guides, all rated 5s, but Sephra is absolutely wonderful. (She tells us she always does the 11am tour on her working days.) With her fabulous personality and humor we hardly noticed it was a yucky rainy day. She is hysterical. Just enough history and talk about the neighborhood, lots of light-hearted humor, mixed with 6 small bites (e.g. a risotto ball bigger than a golf ball; slice of pizza) + 2 desserts. The best way to do lunch in NYC!

clearly a marketing ploy

Very little historical/cultural information about the area. Felt like a group of restaurants formed an organization to parade tourists through their locations. Food was just okay. Every location was billed as the "best" you'll have ...

Very reasonable price explains the tour's value.

It was fantastic !! Our tour guide was the best - local, informed, funny and we felt really lucky to have her ... We had a diverse tour group and she interacted with all of us. The restaurants and stops along the way were varied, the food was great and the area history " lessons"made for a fabulous experience. I would recommend this to anyone coming to NYC. A great representation of a wonderful area and culture .

Love - Love - Love this tour! Raheem our guide was simply Excellent! Not only were the restaurants we visited superb, but his knowledge of the area was wonderful. I've already recommended to several friends that they simply can't visit NYC without doing this tour (and we'll be trying some of the other ones next year when we visit again). I told my niece we had booked this as she was coming to NYC 2 weeks prior to us, so she actually tried it first and raved to us about it. We are SO glad we booked it. Our friends on the tour with us were Italian and one of the restaurants had the best tomato sauce they'd ever tasted (even better than Momma's!!). See you next year!

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, family of 4 with daughters 21 and 16, all of us being amateur foodies. Great way to see a new neighborhood, learn about its history, and get to sample all kinds of great tastings along the way. Our guide Sephra added much humour and character to our outing!
