I can't recommend this tour enough, and even though it was pretty cold there wasn't too much walking or difficulty keeping up.

First time in NYC
Rasmus_S, June 2023
First time in New York and decided on doing the food tour,. Guide really knew her stuff and made it an excellent experience.
Beautiful way to spend an afternoon!
Debbie_M, June 2023
No better way to experience the city and culture then to experience the food made and served by the locals. First off, the food was amazing! Our guide, Lily, was a delight! She was engaging, knowledgeable and kept the energy up and going and she shared little nuances and history of Chinatown and Little Italy. We thoroughly loved it!
Just right

This was a lot of fun!
Autumn_H, May 2023
Of course we enjoyed the food, but we learned quite a bit about the history of the neighborhoods we visited. This was by far our favorite tour of our trip. The dumplings were a big hit with our group, but I really liked the cheese & olive tasting. We were surprised by how much food we tried and were very full after. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed Patrick's leadership, knowledge and choice of tastings. The pasta of Little Italy, the Chinese dumplings and a wide variety of other foods.
Accommodating and Fun!

Patrick was great! We learned so much and had the best food! They were so accommodating for my sister who is a pescatarian as she didn’t have to miss out at any spot.

Lynne_B, May 2023
Great tour, great tour guide (Patrick), and lots of great food! We were running late (I don’t recommend) but our guide called me and made me feel good telling me not to worry, we could easily catch up. So glad we did, it was an excellent tour with much history. Highly recommend!
Wonderful afternoon
Jaclyn_f, May 2023
Walking and eating through the two communities with dana as our guide was a wonderful experience. She had energy, excitement and a friendly personality that made the afternoon feel less like a tour and more like a walk with friends. Come with empty bellies and comfortable shoes!
Yummy Tour
Margaret_C, May 2023

Informative, fun, and delicious!
Sarah_R, May 2023
We loved this tour! Patrick was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing x10000. He was very very knowledgeable and passionate about the area and the food that’s there. If you can get Patrick you will NOT be disappointed. The food was also amazing. I loved everything we ate and I love that we were introduced to food we wouldn’t normally try on our own. I would recommend this tour to everyone going to New York!
Yum and interesting

Liz and Dana made this a great experience! Their energy moved us along and their historic notes were interesting. They made this food tour very enjoyable with constant interaction with the attendees. The number of tastings and quantity of food was incredible!! The accommodation for my vegetarian diet was greatly appreciated 😊 Thanks, Luz and Dana!
