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

I thoroughly agree with Ben l, that the tour is "Fun, friendly with delicious food" and disagree with the woman who said "if you want to be treated like a child then this tour is for you " Corey our guide was a stickler making sure everyone stayed safe, together and was able to sample the food at each stop....

We are a large group format and as so many have noted in their reviews meeting others and making friends is a big part of a tour. Since we are a large group format keeping everyone together and safe is important. Thank you for pointing out that the previous review was off base. Keeping large groups together in neighborhoods and... More

Cory was very friendly and the food stops were really nice, especially the hot dog place. Also met some cool people. I feel that an unnecessary hour was spent at the start on logistics and getting the large group to LES (where all the food stops were located pretty close to one another), the subway travel didn't add value ito...

Danny was an amazing guide and we really enjoyed our midtown mix tour with him this week. Our tour was through Hell's Kitchen and we LOVED each stop. Very affordable and delicious. Danny gave us a great insight into the area and also a heap of tips on other great eats around the city which has been helpful. I took... More

Thank you so much for pointing out how much we help our guests both on the tour and after. Because we do a large group format we sometimes may sound stern (especially when we are moving around and using the subway). Once in awhile someone takes this as rude but most people understand that we need to get everyone around... More

A great way to sample some of the many different foods in New York, both sweet and savoury. The tour took us around a variety of great places to eat with each being a surprise as you find out on the day adding to the excitement. The great thing about this type of tour is you get to choose what... More

Did sweet tour with Corey and he was great. The sweets were great and the bonus was that Corey offered advice on anything you needed to know to make your trip better in New York. He gave us advice on restaurants to eat at and we have already tried two of his suggestions and both were amazing. The tour is... More

We debated whether or not to write a review - especially given the tour operator is not receptive to negative feedback on TripAdvisor. In the end, we decided that since we rely so heavily on Tripadvisor reviews when making travel/tour decisions, it was only fair that we provided an account of our experience. The tour delivered exactly what the spiel... More

As noted by you the tour delivered exactly what we said we do. We are a large group format and sometimes we must be able to keep the group together but based on our over 2,000 reviews your complaint seems to be rare. We do what we do with a smile and in a friendly way. Just because you saw... More

We took the East village variety tour today and it was great. We did different stops with a wide variety of food as the title said so. Cory did his best to give extra information about East Village and expanded this with extra foodie places in other parts of New York. He was very helpful and entertaining. Definetely something to...

Corey took us to fun, authentic places that are off the beaten path. The tour was very well organized and I especially liked the fact that we could choose our own dishes, rather than going with whatever the tour organizers decided to order. Will certainly go with Food on Foot again!

Thank you for calling us authentic. We try to be the non-tour tour. The fact that we go to non-tourist areas and that you choose your own food keeps it real and fun. More

I Love Corey's Food on Foot Tours! This is the second one I have been on--the first one was ~4 years on my first trip to NYC. That experience made such an impression on me that I wanted to share it with my kids on their first trip to NYC as well! We were part of the International Express tour... More

Cory takes you to hidden treasures in Manhattan. He introduces the group to restaurants that you would not find in a short visit. Highly recommended. My 11 year old said it was the best tour ever.
