You choose what you eat and how much. You'll see non-tourist neighborhoods in a relaxed manner while mingling with others from around the world in a larger group format. To experience a culture one must experience their cuisine and since New York is the world's melting pot its many cuisines is its shared culture. Food On Foot Tours takes visitors beyond the tourist attractions to the largest buffet in the world, New York. You´ll see the neighborhoods where New Yorkers live and eat. You´ll share our passion for all things New York and travel the way New Yorkers do, by subway and foot.TripAdvisor Award of Excellence Winner in 2011, 2012 & 2013. « less

This tour was so fun and exciting! Cory was an excellent tour guide and he was so helpful and informative. He really showed everyone a great time and if you had any questions or concerns he was very helpful in answering them. The food chosen for our tour, The East Village Tour, was so fantastic! It was made all the... More

Corny was a gracious host who brings big groups into tiny eating establishments. It was great to have the option to purchase your own food selections as there were some interesting choices on tour. I really appreciated the extra recommendations he gave and visited a few. All of which were great. Lack of toilets didn't bother us and we made... More

This tour was great! It was fun and informative. It was a history tour as well as food. I enjoyed every stop he took us on and he was a blast to get to know. I would only recommend him to do your food on foot tour!

I'd heard about this tour from a friend of mine and was so pleased that we'd booked it. Full information was given as to the type of tour it was and to purchase a metro ticket before hand. The food we sampled was excellent and Cory took us to some small, family run eating places that we may otherwise would... More

Really enjoyed this tour, found some delicious NY food that was very reasonably priced that otherwise we would not have found or probably even just walked straight past. Guide was very friendly and informative, and each of the food stops provided variety and were well paced during the tour. I've noticed a few comments below regarding paying for the subway... More

Thank you for pointing out what we have been saying all along. We tell everyone everything about how our tours work before they book. Complaints specifically about how the tours work are unfair for that reason. Our unique tour is not for everyone and does not try to be. Thanks again and we are glad you had a great time. More

This tour is great if you like real good food! The places the guide brings you offer an authentic taste and is cheap for NYC. You can see the guide is very passionate about his work. He knows good food and wants the people to have a good experience in NYC. If you like walking and go to good places... More

Very difficult to book. Not clear on cost - you pay for all food and subway ride. Poor organisation.

A short review deserves a short reply. If this guest had read everything about the tour on our website, in their booking agreement and in our e-mails they never would have written this. They did not read anything. We go to great lengths to tell everyone exactly what we do. We are a different tour and choice is what makes... More

OK let's just get the negatives out of the way first for Cory's tour. There was only one bathroom stop on the tour of 6 places- admittedly these were small food establishments but 35 of us were spending $$$ at each place so why we could not use the bathroom at any of these places was beyond me. The other... More

Nearly didn't go because of the laboured and confusing process booking online and with a NY Explorer Pass, a process which nearly took longer than tour. Nonetheless once underway, the group settled in to a happy sampling of the fares in East Village. This was an interesting selection of places that we would never have stopped by. Corey knew the...
