Very unique subway and/or walking experiences available as part of a public tour or as a private tour that is different from most standard guided food tours. We also offer self-guided On Your Own Experiences which are food walk-throughs of various New York neighborhoods and are designed to help save you money over eating in tourist restaurants. We are a true eating tour, not a sampling tour and we also offer restaurant recommendations (as noted in many reviews) on our guided tours to help you eat well and save money for the rest of your trip.You choose what you eat and how much. You'll see non-tourist neighborhoods in a relaxed manner and while on the guided tours you will be mingling with others from around the world in a larger group format. For those who do want to experience great restaurants and save money we offer our Customized Restaurant Concierge Service. This is a personal service available through TripAdvisor based on your lodging location, attractions you are seeing, food preferences and budget. To experience a culture one must experience their cuisine and since New York is the world's melting pot its many cuisines is its shared culture. Food On Foot Tours takes visitors beyond the tourist attractions to the largest buffet in the world, New York. You'll see the neighborhoods where New Yorkers live and eat. You'll share our passion for all things New York and travel the way New Yorkers do, by subway and foot.

We booked this as part of our combined trip, from the outset the communication was brilliant. We received very clear meeting instructions and this really helped the tour run smoothly. Corey was our guide and he took us to 6 locations (we would never have chosen these ourselves) we had a chance to sample many different types of food (I... More

Our tours are so unique, special and different that we really want guests to know what... More

I went on this tour with my Mum. The food was great! The best pizza ever!!! We were disappointed with the number of people on the tour (around 40). It was just too many for the small shops we visited. It would have made the experience much better if the groups were divided into 2 with another guide. There was... More

We reached out to this reviewer but they have not responded. We wanted to give them a chance to explain their review because we see it as a set of contradictions. They say they are disappointed in the number of the people on the tour but they did not mention that it was told to them several times and that... More

Thanks very much to Corey for guiding us through the East Village cuisine. His knowledge of the area is amazing and the structure of the tour suited us perfectly allowing us to choose what we wanted at each stop. Stops on tour - Vanessa's Dumplings, Artichoke Pizza (try Sicilian), Hot Dogs (try Chihuahua with Salsa - Yumm), Pork Sandwich shop,... More

Corey gave a great tour which included some history of the East Village as well as a taste of the local foods. We had original NY pizza, dumplings, pulled pork, a hot dog, and two sweet stops. This tour included our two favorite things, food and history.

This tour does not promiss too much. Every stop is a secret gem. Which stops that are? Take the tour! You won't regret it. Guide answers additional questions well informed and with great background knowledge.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
