Owner description: Voted BEST CITY TOUR by CitySearch & praised by TIme Out New York Magazine with the phrase: "There is delicious justification for their popularity." We offer food tours 7 days a week and we tour in 5 different NYC neighborhoods. Check out our page with over 19,000 reviews. We are NEW YORK'S FIRST & BEST. Since 1999 we've been giving Food Tasting & Cultural Walking Tours through New York City's most delicious and historic neighborhoods. We provide a "Non-Touristy" experience so you feel like a Native New Yorker! And even if you are a native NYer, we'll show you some secret gems in downtown NYC that you may have missed. Each tour includes food tastings from specialty food shops, ethnic eateries, and local restaurants, as well as an "off the beaten path" glimpse of life in New York City -the history, culture, architecture, and entertainment offerings. We're New York's best Food Tasting & Cultural Walking tour! We can't wait to show you our favorite spots - and feed you all along the way.

Three of us went on two tours-Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking neighborhood one. We had a delicious time!! Not only do you get knowledgeable guides, historical information and exercise, but you get large and small plates of excellent food, meet store owners and hear their story, and make friends with others in your tour group! (We all shared pictures with each other via email!)
It isn't all walking, as you often get to sit to eat and have other stops along the tour to rest. While visiting NYC we took double decker bus tours, boat tours, and carriage rides, but these two food tours were our favorites! Be sure to book early, as these tours are popular!

We were very impressed with our guides and the food we sampled. The guides were thoughtful, fun and knowledgeable. We would take your tours any time we are able.

I've done one of their walking food tours before and it was fabulous. A good mix of history and great food spots as well as one of the best ways to see the city. Most recently another walking food tour was canceled due to Hurricane Sandy. The customer service and dedication of the staff was above and beyond. I highly recommend for anyone looking to experience the real NYC!

Visited 8 different eating establishments in Greenwich village. All were very close together and I may not have visited some had it not been for the very knowledgeable guide. Guide also gave good recommendations for later dining. Enough food was sampled that it was the same as eating lunch- just had to walk between courses!!!

Upon the recommendation of a family member, we booked ourselves for the Greenwich Village Tour. Our experience was so remarkably superb that we returned to take the Explore Chinatown Tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our second Foods of New York Tours - so much so that we returned a third time to take the Central Village / SoHo Tour. Three times was the charm for us - so this Thanksgiving we will be taking the Nolita / NoHo Tour.
We highly recommend Foods of New York Tours - without reservations of any kind.
We have been on trips in both rain and shine. Always - our experience has exceeded our expectations - due to the sensitivities, expertise and emotional intellegence of the company's Tour Guides.
The small group format enables the Tour Guides to be close and personal while enlivening the restaurant and shop encounters. We were educated, entertained and cared for and we captured lasting memories of neighborhoods - in a way unobtainable on our own.
