Our food tour with Liz was so much more than expected! Liz was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, and imparted not only great history, but reading and movie suggestions that were about the same places. The tastings were incredible, well done, and she went above and beyond accommodating my food allergy to shellfish. I would not only do this same tour again, but I would certainly stay with her company should we book again, and I know that we will in the near future. Hands down, this was the highlight of a fun, busy weekend with our daughter and her husband, who had never been to the city.
What an amazing tour! It was our first time in New York, and while we had a little bit of an idea of the heritage, we soon found out how things intertwined and gave such a rich culture to the area.
The food was delicious - samples were generous and actually helped add to the story of the area and its history.
Much of the success of this tour was thanks to our guide, Liz. What an amazing person - she made us all feel like we had known each other for years, was inclusive and no question was too much trouble to answer.
I highly recommend this tour. Thanks Ahoy New York tours.
I took my two teenage sons and they loved it! Liz was a fabulous tour guide with tons of knowledge!! It was freezing so that was the only part that was a little tough in the areas where we couldn't be indoors. Obviously, they cannot control the weather : The restaurants and markets that we visited were authentic and delicious! I highly recommend if you were like to find some great food and learn about the area in a couple of hours. The best part was the Tasty Dumplings restaurant where we bought 5 chive and pork dumplings for 1.25!! My boys made us go back after the tour and ordered at least 5 more orders.
This tour was nice in that it included an insiders info about the area. A lot of history here and the stories gave life to the neighborhoods. Free samples of the most amazing marinara, cheeses, and sausages as well. Dim Sum place had a 2 hour wait, we walked right in :
I did notice there are many tours in this area, and this one would be a fine choice.
