Excellent tour with our guide Cullen. We were lucky to have a small group of 5 which made it easy for us to get around. We were guided through an area that I would not have ventured on my own but now I feel comfortable in going back and to revisit some of the restaurants we walked past.

Bruce was an extremely personable and knowledgeable tour guide! My fiancé and I loved our tour and enjoyed every food stop and tidbit of knowledge he shared with us!

Our guide Erik was enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable about the history of NYC. I learned so much and ate good food along the way.

Bruce was knowledgeable and brought the food scene and culture of the area to life for us’

We enjoyed it so much and would highly recommend it.
