This was my second food tour with this NY company. We had a delightful guide, Marci, who was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. The food selections were great and very generous. Didn’t need lunch, for sure.

Justin provided an interesting tour of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that included a nice variety of stops to sample quintessential New York and Brooklyn-specific food. His commentary on sites in the area was informative and laced with wit. The tour was well-paced and efficient--just right.

If you really want to try the tour I would look for a groupon. It is absolutely not worth $50pp.
