Owner description: The unique concept behind City Food Tours was developed in New York City when Joyce Weinberg, a seasoned food industry professional with more than 20 years of experience, wanted to share her passion for fine foods. From managing Fortune 500 confectionery businesses, to buying gourmet chocolates for Bloomingdales, she’s done it all. Compared to other existing tours that focus on more common foods, CFT introduces tour guests to a vast offering of high-quality, artisanal foods and encourage them to support local specialty stores, farmers, and sustainable agriculture. We help people realize that there’s a lot more out there than the processed foods they encounter in mega-marts.

We enjoyed this more than anything we did during a trip to see the city at Christmas. The tastings were more than expected...our guide was a Village native and a foodie which made it even better.

Robert was our guide and it was just the two of us because it was a cold, raining Saturday and the day afternoon Halloween. This tour begins with tastings at Caffe Lavazza and Eataly, Mario Batali’s Italian food... More

Our guide Amanda was fun, interesting and knowledgeable, as an ex local of the area she shared her love and experiences with us. We loved the quirky little places she knew intimately and shared with us and the food was excellent. Certainly visited places we wouldn't have found on our own. Took some great photos of the wonderful architecture and... More

It was a beautiful day for a walking tour of Greenwich Village. Our guide was charming and informative, sharing facts about the neighborhood's architecture and history. We tasted a variety of foods, most of which were good but not outstanding. Our only criticism is that a few of the portion sizes (specifically the Papaya King hot dog, and the compost... More

We were shown around by Amanda, it was really interesting because she gave us a lot of information about the area and each restaurant had history in New York. They were places I never would have thought to try other wise. We had a really great group and our tour guide Amanda was really engaging and informative. Great tour, definitely... More

When the tour was done, he knew more about the subway system than the concierge at my hotel--got us back to our hotel quickly with his help...should have given... More

We had terrific donuts, wonderful bialy's, terrific chunky gazpacho, and the freshest cup of coffee I have ever had. Erik was a delightful guide. He was well informed and quite pleasant to... More
