This was an awesome food tour that we booked with “Get Your Guide.” We went on March 27 (12:30). Our group of six was perfect, and our guide Tom, was very knowledgeable and personable. We visited a Japanese restaurant, a famous cookie shop, an Indian inspired taco shop, a meatball restaurant, and a Mediterranean restaurant with tapas and grilled chicken. Everything was very delicious and we were so full that we couldn’t eat very much at the last stop. If you do this tour, I would recommend only tasting your cookie, and saving the rest for later! It was fun to learn about this part of town and would love to come back, some day, to Restaurant Row. We would highly recommend this food tour.

Signed up for this food tour on a short trip to NYC to see some Broadway shows. Claire did an excellent job guiding the group, providing historical detail about the area and accommodating dietary preferences. The food was varied and there was a lot of it! An excellent way to get a real sense of the ethnicity of the city.

We went to a Japanese restaurant, cookie shop, Latin eatery and a Mediterranean restaurant. The guide was interesting, knowledgeable and attentive and the food was great. She gave us history of the area as well as information about the restaurants. The only issue was the first restaurant where we were to meet did not seem to know that we were coming but it worked out.

Claire was a dream tour guide! Funny, knowledgeable, accommodating, inspiring. We had an incredible experience and will be adding food tours to our travel agenda wherever we go. The food we tried was wildly varied and absolutely delicious. You will not finish hungry!!

Excellent Tour and Jake was the perfect guide! He told us a story and the food stops were so good. They were ready for the group. We would do this or a similar tour again with this company. Annie and Jake both confirmed our visit ahead of the tour. Jake also helped us out with directions after the tour.

I ate a bagel in the morning before the tour. That was a mistake. The portions on this tour are very generous. Jake was a great tour guide and the food was awesome. Fun learning about the history of this area - hope to do the other tours from this outfit in the future.

My wife and I along with another couple did the Hells kitchen tour with Billy as our guide. We chose the Hells kitchen tour mainly because it was close to our hotel but also because we have already done food tours on pretty much every other area of the city and Brooklyn. This is our first tour with Manhattan and we will definitely do another. Our guide Billy appeared very experienced and knowledgeable about the city. He was very professional and we enjoyed his company.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers. Billy is one of the best guides in the city and we are so lucky to have him on our team. We look forward to having the opportunity to explore further with you on your next visit!

What a delight this tour was?!! Our guide, Jennifer, was gracious, entertaining and very accommodating (as she had to wait on our arrival - we were a tad late to the meeting place)! The first stop was at Gyu-Kaku where we cooked our own delicious strips of beef at the in-table grill. It was my first such experience and I can't wait to do it again! We moved on to 3 other locations where we sampled a multi-cultural sandwich; empanadas and plantains; and the piece de resistance was a doughnut ice cream sandwich - another first for me. The distance we walked between stops was well balanced so that this septuagenarian could easily keep up, without playing the "age card"! I don't think anyone knew. I loved it and would highly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide Nancy did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the Hells Kitchen area and taking us to a variety of interesting restaurants. Our entire group enjoyed learning how the area started and in seeing the vast amount of restaurants. She was extremely helpful in pointing out and sending suggestions all kinds of restaurants to try when we return. I would recommend this tour for the history as well as food.
