About City Food Tours and Events
The unique concept behind City Food Tours was developed in New York City when Joyce Weinberg, a seasoned food industry professional with more than 20 years of experience, wanted to share her passion for fine foods. From managing Fortune 500 confectionery businesses, to buying gourmet chocolates for Bloomingdales, she's done it all. Compared to other existing New York food tours that focus on more common foods, CFT introduces tour guests to a vast offering of high-quality, artisanal foods and encourage them to support local specialty stores, farmers, and sustainable agriculture. We help people realize that there's a lot more out there than the processed foods they encounter in mega-marts.

I am stunned at how poorly I've been treated by Joyce at City Food Tours. I have been a long time customer of Joyce's. Last week, I booked a tour for a small group of important guests. Leading up to our tour, we realized we...More

We did the Flavors of New York Food Tour. It was really fun and our guide did a good job of educating us, but still moving things along. She was very adapted at changing things as people made comments about certain types of food. The...More

A friend and I took part in the Prohibition cocktail tour in NY. It consisted of 3 locations, 3 cocktails, snacks and a guide. Our guide (Megan) was very informative and enthusiastic, answering all of our questions where she could. We were a good size...More

This was my second food tour in NYC, and my daughters' (16 and 13) first. The youngest qualified for a child's price which I really liked because she is still not very open to trying "adult" foods. Our guide, Amira, was very pleasant and informative,...More

It is so nice doing a food tour and going through a part of the city with a local that tells you about the neighbourhood and takes you inside to have a few good foods. Learn more about Chelsea with its food market (and the...More

In my opinion this tour is absolutely not worth it and falls completely short of what it is advertised as. The only thing that may be true about this tour "...it will fill you up..." but certainly does not "...bring the history of the city...More

What this just boiled down to was being taken to 3 different bars and given cocktails, something I wouldn't have paid $145 for. I feel the phrase "prohibition tour" wildly exaggerated the experience we had. There was nothing "tour" about this. We arrived early at...More

All the food tastings were delicious! We learned a lot about New York history and culture, while eating amazing food. You could see the pride people had in what they made every day for the neighborhood and I think that was the best part.
