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.

Absolutely loved this tour. Mallory was a fantastic tour guide. She was engaging, knew the city well and amusing. The samples at each stop were interesting. Molly's was hands down the best stop on the tour. Second best was Cookie's and Milk. The rest of the stops were just OK. Highly recommend the tour and make sure you get seconds... More

We met above a subway in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. We had a slice of pizza, some really good bbq, some chocolate, a bit of ice cream, bagel, cheese, and candy. This is a pretty gritty area that is becoming more "gentrified." The sidewalks, roads, and buildings seemed dirty to us, but I guess that's part of the big... More

Went on the 11AM food tour this Saturday with Ian and had an amazing time! I have worked for 2 years in the neighborhood that the tour took place and still loved it! I really appreciated the history and charisma that our guide Ian brought to the table. The food was delicious and perfect in amount. I am looking into... More

I've lived "near" NYC all my life but never had such a great experience as my Cupcake Tour. I was a little nervous when I arrived at the meeting spot not to see a sign or kiosk. Mallory was there with her cupcake hat on. Very well run tour. Easy pace with a lot of stops. Mallory kept us engaged... More

My girlfriend and I bought the Brooklyn Food Tour in Groupon..Brendan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and helpful, providing us with interesting information about the restaurants and the Williamsburg neighborhood..On the other hand, half of the places we stopped by were really amazing food-wise ( A pizzeria, A bagel paradise, and a BBQ ribs place next to Brooklyn Brewery),...

Cupcake samples, gelato and a cookie. What could possibly be wrong with that? And in one of the most historic neighborhoods in the US. Mallory was gracious and patient and needed to be with three strollers on the tour and a few screamers. But she handled it well.

Our guide, Walter, was very informed...good personality & welcomed tour guests to interact. The food stops were varied, interesting & tasty. Our group was mostly tourists (like us). Found a great deal for this tour on Groupon. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone...FUN! I think locals would even love & recommend this.

Of course the evolution of the area is dramatic since I left but there are still remnants of the past. Our guide,Brendan, was well versed in the history and was able to keep the trendy shops and restaurants in context with the history of the neighborhood. He made the tour fun and interesting. I would highly recommend it for anyone... More

A big thank you to Kyle, our chocolate tour guide. We learnt a lot about chocolate, and the history of the area through his amazing storytelling skills.
