Fun way to see NYC
Peggy_S, Mar 2023
It was a great tour but the guide was a bit quirky - hard to understand ...seemed very soft spoken...he had good information to share but not quite as personable as the one we had last time we did a food tour in NYC Food was delicious but very close together...would have liked a bit more walking between stops

Intro to Brooklyn

Walter was an excellent and informed tour guide! We learned a lot and loved the food tour stops. Great tour!
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Thank you for leaving us a 5-star review! Happy to hear you enjoyed your tour.
Kevin_B, Sept 2022
Walter was lovely. Compared to other food tours it lacked anecdotal/ historical aspect. The food spots we visited were quite different than listed. I understand that they are “subject to change” but we were hoping for a bit more from the places we visited. We still enjoyed our day. Just wouldn’t recommend based on our experience.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Kevin, thank you for providing feedback. As we discussed via email after your tour, it appears there was some confusion around what tour you were booking for. I understand your frustration to feel you didn't visit the stops you were expecting, but the stops you were expecting were for an entirely different tour from a different company. Our tour did operate as advertised and it's unfortunate that this confusion led you to not have a 5-star experience. We hope you will book a tour with us in the future to really experience all we have to offer!
Lots of food and history in Williamsburg

History through food
Marina_D, Aug 2021
Really enjoyed Walters stories and passion for the place and food. I enjoyed the historical context most!
Highly recommended
Michael_M, June 2021
First, the description under sells the tour. Much more robust than described. All the food was excellent. Nice to have sit down stops. The pacing could use a little work but overall highly recommended.
Response from Host, July 2021
Hi Michael - thanks for leaving this review! We will work on the pacing but are so glad you enjoyed the tour. We hope to see you again. Thanks!
Got to see a lot of the neighborhood of Williamsburg. Food was good.
Theresa_P, June 2021
The food was great, but was not expecting to walk about 2 miles during the tour. I kind of thought the people that worked at the eateries would come out and talk about the food, but that did not happen.
Response from Host, July 2021
Hi Theresa - thanks for taking the time to leave this review. We are sorry that the restaurants didn't have more time to spend with the group. We make every effort to make that happen but sometimes our restaurant partners are short staffed or extra busy. Glad you enjoyed the food though (which is why we picked the partners that we did!).
