Dont just see it, or be stuck in a large group. Experience it through the eyes of an energetic, licensed (some even say good looking!), local Food Blogger. I take private to very small groups on walks in Hell's Kitchen and East Village where we learn about the neighborhoods complex and troubled past while eating some of the tastiest stuff NYC has to offer. As well as day trips to the heart of Brooklyn where we visit 6 extremely diverse neighborhoods full of culture, history, and yeah more food!

I did the Brooklyn food, cemetery, Coney Island, Nicolas Cage tour. Everything was great. Ziggy is engaging. His food selections are spot on. I probably wouldn't have made it out to Brighton Beach on my own. It was the highlight of the tour for me....More
