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. « less

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

Went on the lower east side tour with Erik yesterday morning. What a great tour. Food was delicious and very filling. Erik was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. 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

My fiancé and I got this tour as a gift, as he loves beer and cheese, but just be aware that 90% of this tour is DESSERT! It is very misleading to call it a "Beer, cheese, & chocolate tour", as it should be called a Dessert tour. There are six stops on the tour, and 5 out of 6... More

We took the Lower East Side Food Tour. It was great. Each stop was very interesting with delicious food. There was a good variety of types of food. Our guide Eric explained the history of the area in a relaxed conversational manner. He is clearly knowledgeable and has a good sense of humor. J & J

I took my Dad on the chocolate, wine and dessert tour on the Upper West Side for his birthday. It was a fun afternoon and all of the desserts we tasted were great. Wendy, our tour guide, was both friendly and knowledgeable. I only had two issues with the experience. First, was the fact that one of the stops was... More

I was going to rate it Very Good and asked myself what would have made it excellent? It poured rain the say we went and we were soaked, so if it would have been nice out it would have been excellent. Since the company and tour guide cannot control the weather it truly was excellent. We started out with chocolate... More
