Embark on a culinary walking tour of one of North Jersey's most vibrant foodie destinations: Jersey City. Often referred to as NYC's 'Sixth Borough,' this waterfront hub is simply buzzing with new restaurants and eateries. Talk with local chefs while sampling some of the city's best pasta, burgers, Mexican eats and more. You'll visit 4 to 6 different locations and enjoy tastings at each. What a truly thorough experience? We recommend arriving with both an empty stomach and an elastic waistband.

We had a great afternoon on the Jersey Girl Food Tour of Jersey City with Alessia. She knows everything about JC and took us to wonderful restaurants with delicious food and drink. I have allergies and they were very accommodating. I would highly recommend it.
