I have taken the Greenwich, and Soho tours. They were fantastic, and I gave them rave reviews. I've introduced many of my family and friends to your tours. However, Nolita, did not match the other two tours. The tour guide Anny, was nice, but we had a very hard time hearing her. The tour could have used a little change. It would have been nicer to end the tour with a cupcake sampler, than to have started with one. The food establishments were ok, but not any I would go back to. The food seemed a little bland, nothing to really write home about. I guess the first two tours really went beyond my expectations, so I was really disappointed with this one. I will be back to do the Chelsea tour, I hope that one has the wow factor of the first two.

Been to NYC many times but decided I wanted to try a food tour. I did 3 food tours that first week of July. Didn't he Chelsea/ meat packing tour, Greenwich and Nolita. I thoroughly enjoyed all the tours. They were insightful and had a good sampling of the foods. The tour guides were very pleasant, knowledgable and made the tour fun. I would recommend to anyone.

This was our first experience on a "food tour" and it was a fantastic introduction. Anny was our tour guide and she was delightful. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the area was terrific. The food samples were all so good. It was fun having the opportunity to try a varity of dishes and each one was better than the one before. Our samples were very generous and upon finishing the tour we were pleasantly stuffed. Now we want to go on all the food tours. Can't wait for the next one!

As a gift, I was given the NOLITA Food Tour. I did not have much expectations as I was born and raised there. In the end, I was delighted to know some history that I did not know about. The sample foods was great.

If you love food and a bit of local history, this is a tour for you. It is only 3 hours and $50/person. You pop in and out of various restaurants/shops/bakeries and have about 7-8 tastings on the tour. Varying from a cup of organic chocolate milk to a home made pizza slice. We did both Chelsea and Nolita tours. Amazing guides, full of history about the neighbourhood. They have personal stories about the neighbourhood and the various owners and how they came into business. Great way to explore these areas of NYC. Personal, full of interesting history, and of course amazing food. Also a good way to figure out where you may want to dine on your trip.
