Maryana was a great guide - passionate, knowledgeable and interested in getting to know a little about all of her guests. The tastings were plentiful and many: as a vegetarian I was well catered for (I had noted this on the booking and the fact I could do this was one of the reasons for choosing this company) and please believe the reviews that say you will be full by the end - we only ate a snack later in the day!
We had a great time, met new people, learned about the history of the area, sampled lovely food (the Eggplant Rolitini was a highlight) and had a thoroughly great experience. Can happily recommend

We booked the tour in advance having looked at the positive feedback on Trip Advisor for the day before we were due to return home. The itinerary was clearly laid out and we made our way to the meeting place where Zoe was there to great us. We visited around six restaurants/shops within a small area, so walking is kept to a minimum. We tasted food at each place we visited, and the price was included in the cost of the tour. So, no further cost... Brilliant. We learned about the history of China Town and Little Italy and how the first immigrants had to live in the most impoverish conditions. Of course, things have improved these days.
Zoe's knowledge of eateries around China Town and Little Italy is immense. She made the tour very interesting and invited questions, even if off script.
My only regret is that we didn’t do this tour earlier in the week because we would have loved to have returned to some of the restaurants.
All in all, a brilliantly lead tour visiting some great places. A must do. Oh. Before I forget…. Taste the olives.

Hello Alan t! Thanks for this brilliant review! It is so wonderful to hear you enjoyed yourselves on tour with Zöe and we are firm believers that tours like this should be done at the beginning of your trip for the same reasons you mentioned. We hope next time you visit you join us on another tour and get to see and eat your way through another neighborhood. Happy eating!

If you've every been on a tour of (any kind), you know that the tour guide truly "makes or breaks" the experience. This rule was followed 100% during our Private Progressive Italian Food Tour with our tour guide, Liz on Friday night. From start to finish Liz made our experience FANTASTIC by giving us history, current information, and most importantly delicious food and drink from a variety of different Italian restaurants that have stood the test of time in NYC's Little Italy. We truly enjoyed everything this tour had to offer and would most definitely recommend it as a fun and unique experience for groups that are looking for something special as a celebration or fun night out.
Also, a shout out to Alana who helped me organize all the details of the tour. I really appreciated her help!

My husband and I have often flown in and out of NYC for business but decided to spend a long weekend playing tourist in New York. We thought a food tour would be a fun way to explore a part of the City we didn’t know, and we always enjoy a good meal. We were also looking for things to do outside, to reduce our COVID risk. The Mulberry Street tour was a great choice. Liz was a fun and engaging guide, and the tour offered a lot of variety. We walked up and down Mulberry Street and a couple of other neighboring streets, and sampled foods from Naples, France, Israel, Vietnam, Sicily, and Hong Kong. It’s a three-hour tour, but it isn’t demanding in terms of walking and there are opportunities to sit along the way and enjoy the food, the people-watching, and getting to know your fellow tour-mates. The food was tasty, and we were full by the end. We had such a good time that we went back up Mulberry Street afterwards to shop, and returned that evening to try another restaurant we had spotted along the way. I highly recommend.

Hi amyr263, So happy to read that you had fun on our food tour with Liz. Mulberry Street is very fascinating and has lots of different cuisine to offer--we are glad that you found that true too. So wonderful that you went back later on to try a different restaurant that you spotted during our tour. Thanks for recommending the Taste of Mulberry Street tour and we hope to see you again soon.

This food tour was a highlight of our trip to New York. I was traveling with a group and every person raved about this tour. There is a perfect balance of historical information and food. We got a generous amount of food with lots of variety and everything we ate was fantastic. We definitely plan to go back to some of the places that were shared with us. In fact, I think we may even take the other tour this company offers since we had such a good time. Even the two members of our group who live in NYC really enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Zoe, was wonderful. She was very friendly and approachable and made sure we knew what to expect along the way. Overall, I recommend this tour 100%.

This tour was fantastic! Our guide, Patrick, did an outstanding job discussing the salient points regarding the historic nature of our sites, ensuring we were eating authentic cuisine prepared by local restaurants, answering all of our questions while keeping us perfectly paced with the time. We were very full by the end but couldn't resist the perfect cannoli at our last stop!

It's so convenient that Ahoy gives text info notifications for their meeting location, but it was a little misleading :-(
They texted to meet at a specific intersection, when in fact the tour origin was a specific restaurant address that was listed in fine print in the email confirmation. Why give vague instructions in the text that is most likely the source of info for most tour goers? Simply include the address and no one will be left behind!
That being said, our tour guide Liz was friendly, entertaining, very knowledgeable and passionate about the tour - my teens and I were enthralled, entertained and educated to boot!

Hello and thank you for your review. We are happy to read that you enjoyed the tour with Liz as a family. We again apologize about the chatbot text service, we updated the automated response with a complete address. While we understand your frustration, again we did not start the tour without your group and the chat bot is a fall back communication system--the actual information (full meet up location) is provided in multiple emails. This was an anomaly for us and as we mentioned it's been fixed so it won't happen again.

Patrick our tour guide was full of energy and had such a friendly and informative way of showing us around. The food was really good and we all left with lovely memories and full tummies. The portions where perfect small size. I would recommend this to everyone who is interested in history and authentic local food with interesting stories of the neighborhood.

Patrick was an outstanding guide to Chinatown and Little Italy for our family including two eight and ten year olds. He was witty, highly informative but casual. The food selections at each stop were uniformly delicious, generous and well-paced. After the tour we returned to several of the stops to stock up on goodies. The Italian deli gave us a healthy discount - even better than the discount coupon that Ahoy provided for most stops.

Great value and a fascinating experience.
