5 Things to Expect on a Food Tour

September 27th, 2017 | Posted by Foodie in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Do you ever get tired of bringing your day of exploring to a halt, just to search yelp reviews and argue about where to eat? You’re not alone (and there’s a better way!)

Whether you’re visiting for the weekend, or you’ve lived in the city you’re whole life, Food Tours are the way to go.

It’s simple: Eat, learn, walk, repeat. On your walking tour you’ll meet your knowledgeable guide who will not only give you insider secrets about the neighborhood and best bites to eat, they’ll get to know you as well. But there’s so much more!

Here are 5 things you can expect on a Sidewalk Food Tour:

1- The Best Eats

We’re not messing around here. Just because you get to try all kinds of foods, don’t think we’re going to give you anything less than the best!

We’ve hand picked our favorite local foods to create a tasting lineup that is nothing short of delicious. It’s enough for a full meal!

Fewer things taste better than an authentic family recipe. Many of our tastings include restaurants that have been in the family for generations- some more than 100 Years! And don’t worry, we’ll throw in some of the hot new spots as well.

2- Secret Spots

There is so much to see in NYC! Chances are while you’ve been running around you’ve missed some of the best parts of this incredible city. As locals and experts, we’ll give you insights that reveal whole new worlds within little known streets and whole-in-the-wall restaurants.

3- Century old Stories

Whether your a history buff or you could care less- our tours take you back in time to experience the grandest stories on the actual streets that they took place! You’ll walk along the same sidewalks as celebrities, gangsters, artists, politicians, immigrants, film-makers and icons. Our talented guide will bring the streets to life in ways you would never experience with a travel guide. Just give them your ears and imaginations and they’ll give you an experience to remember.

4- Variety (The Spice of Life)

Old and new, savory and sweet, hot and cold, spicy and mild, there is something for everyone on our tours! Many people tell us that they never would’ve tried something without coming on our food tour, and now it’s made it to their all time favorite food list.

Your guide will take you on a journey through the rich history, culture, and cuisine of the city. You’ll taste all sorts of flavors, stopping periodically at local restaraunts or food trucks, bizarre sights, and exciting landmarks. Around each corner is something different, and as my mother always says- “Variety is the Spice of Life!”

5- The Freedom to Take it All In

Forget google maps, Uber, getting lost, or tourist traps. On our food tours you can relax and let us take care of everything for you. Just follow the leader through beautiful neighborhoods and every once in a while food will appear! The Magic of it is- you get all the best selections with none of the work. You’re free to take photos, listen to stories, be present, take it all in, and live your life!
