We went on the Little Italy tour with Walter in early October and were impressed with his knowledge of the neighborhood and food stops. We've been on several other tours and really enjoy hearing about the buidlings and history of the neighborhood we have just walked by so many times. Walter was very interesting and professional and answered all our... More

This was our 3rd food tour with this company, the other 2 being chocolate & cupcake tours. Brendan, our guide knew his Williamsburg history and the stories behind the 6 food stops, so no complaints there. The Tour's first 3 stops started off well with a decent size slice of pizza, a quarter bagel (but the flavor of the cream... More

Our walk on Sunday (food tour of the Village) was delightful. This was our 3rd GNYT tour, and our second -- as it happened -- with Marcie. )Our other food tour was with Brendan, in Brooklyn. Everthing I say about Marcie applies to him, too.) I was hanging out in the Village a number of decades ago, and still do... More

We spent a couple of hours doing this tour, the name was kind of funny and we did not expect much, however the day was gorgeous and beautiful to walk. They take you to 6 shops to taste no only cupcakes but also macaroon (French), sorbet from a place that makes gelato and cookies. My favorite were the cookies from... More

I scheduled a tour and nobody showed up or called. I got a lousy email saying they were sorry and to contact Groupon for a refund. Horrible business practice! When I got to the meeting location, I was told 'this company does this all the time' and was referred to another. DON'T BOOK THOUGH THIS COMPANY!

During a day trip to NYC, I booked a Chocolate Walking Tour. It started at Chelsea Market (which was fantastic on it's own!) and brought us through the Meat Packing District and SOHO to name a few. The samples were great, ranging from small, bite size morsels to giant cookies! There was a place to use the restroom at a... More

This food tour started the bar off high with brick oven pizza from forninos! Probably some of the best I ever had! This went for the first 3 stops which included a bagel from Bagelsmith and some of the best BBQ I've ever tastes at Mables. The sweets that we encountered after were good, although I think the candy shop... More

Very enjoyable. A little bit of history and food. Actually, stopping at 4 different places for food provides plenty to eat. Our tour guide, Walter, did a fantastic job. Our next trip will include another food tour in another NYC locale.
