If you’re a foodie and like to eat (and who doesn’t!) – and enjoy culture, walking and shopping in one of the world’s most famous food & walking cities, consider taking a Food-Tasting & Cultural Walking Tour during your next visit to New York. It’s one of our favorite things to do when visiting Manhattan – it’s also popular with the locals! What better way to explore NYC’s diverse areas, learn about its history, culture and architecture (tour guides are friendly and extremely knowledgeable), taste local specialties (come with an appetite; we guarantee you won’t leave hungry)… and walk it all off! It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your passion for food and fun!

Foods of New York Tours offers five unique food-tasting and walking tours, including: Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District, Central Village/SoHo and Nolita/NoHo. We’ve taken several of their tours (read more below) and highly recommend them.
