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 & 2014. « less

Unlike other food tours I've taken, we had to pay for our tasting at each of the stops. The food was very generic, and not good at all. I'm a "Foodie", so I know my food pretty well. The guide was not very informative and did not give us much of the history or the architecture of the areas we... More

Sorry the tour wasn't for you but if you read the information before you booked we tell you clearly that we are not a history tour. We also let you know we are not a standard food tour and that we are a non-gourmet tour. You also knew in advance that food was not included so why are you complaining... More

We booked on the east village tour, from start to finish it was fantastic, Corey was a brilliant tour guide, lots of information but not too much, fun, friendly, great to meet people from other countries and you could mingle as much or as little as you felt comfortable. The food stops were yummy and cheap. It was great to... More

We booked the Food on Foot tour via the Explorer Pass, which is, one has to say, not the easiest process I have ever encountered. However, it did mean that I actually read all the information about the tour and knew what to expect. Specifically:where to go, when to be there, that it would be small restaurants with limited facilities... More

If you love meat, this is THE tour for you. We went to four stops in and around East Village - two meat stops and one sweet stop. Some of them were unimpressive from the outside, so tourists like us would walk by, not knowing what we had missed. The meat was fantastic at each stop and our Guide provided... More

Thanks for loving the meat tour. It is certainly different and special and a carnivore's delight. As with all our tours the costs are based on sharing so one sandwich on this tour will be for two people. Unfortunately one couple did not read about the tour and left early. We send multiple communication about the tour and have the... More

This type of tour is the exact type of tour that anyone visiting New York should take. You get to get a feel for the different areas, without being overwhelmed like you would on a hop on, hop off bus. Plus you get to try some really unique foods as well. Don't just go to NYC and hit up the... More

Found different types of food at good prices. Guide was good and friendly. His name is Cory. He has other tours as well. There are six food stops. This was my second tour in 3 years. I wanted to expose the city to my daughter this time around. I recommend it.

My husband and I did the Go West Tour in August 2014. It was fantastic! In May 2014, my sisters, mother and I did the East Side Tour and it was equally amazing, if not even better! People have asked, "Couldn't you just go by yourself to these places and skip paying for the tour?" There are a few things... More

We want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The reviewer a few spaces below really gave us no credit for anything and just lambasted the tour in a vindictive way. We noticed that you addressed some of that and we are grateful. What we do cannot be duplicated by research. A computer page cannot bring someone... More

We did the Midtown Mix Food Tour, and we loved it. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and try different foods that we would have never thought to try on our own. Our guide was very informative on some of the history of NYC, and he also had great knowledge of the restaurant scene. He makes the... More
