Enjoyed the leisurely walk thru the neighborhoods and learning the history of the area and its various ethnic groups. Tom was very engaging and informative. Best part was the 4 food stops at local "hidden" establishments, each serving an excellent quintessential selection.

Not very plesant or relaxing
Ludo_D, Apr 2024
The tour was executed in a rush. Not very plesant or relaxing. The tour ended at another place than mentioned in the original booking. Not very plesant or relaxing. Final verdict: never again!
Waste of money

Unfortunately it was torrential rain so not very enjoyable. Wanted to cancel but was only able to reschedule which didn’t work for me due to timing. Only four stops on the tour and was expecting more.

Being able to taste and experience a little bit of Chinatown and Little Italy was very enjoyable! Ryan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and informative.
Very good food and guide!

Rose was a great guide who gave a very nice mix of info about the food, restaurants, and communities we walked through. Company should consider slightly smaller groups (or try to get reserved seating) as seating for everyone on the group was not always possible in some restaurants.
Fun food experience

Paul_M, Mar 2024
Pizza was the best that I’ve ever had. He really enjoyed the dumpling. Also we learned a little about New York and neighborhoods. We’ve not spent time in and found a few places we wanna go back to. Rose was great. The only complaint we had is it got a little cold as the day progressed and the restaurants that you go to our small so we had to sit outside. Highly recommend.
Fantastic food your experience

My walking and Food Tasting Tour
Julie_Z, Mar 2024
In addition to the food the tour guide I think her name was Nia, or Mia was very knowledgeable about the information she was providing. That margarita pizza in little Italy was the best I ever tasted. As a New Yorker escorting my cousin who was visiting from the UK I was really very impressed. I now intend to visit more often especially Little Italy.
Great food, good times, excellent experience
Adam_B, Mar 2024
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area since he lived there, and was great at giving us great history about the area and the food. He also answered all our questions and was genuinely easy to talk to.
Cool food tour
Taunya_T, Mar 2024
The food was amazing and Ryan gave some interesting information that I didn't know before. Even though it was a little cold, the tour and food itself were enjoyable enough to push past the cold.
Excellent Tour
