My daughter and I did this tour and had a great time. Hannah was our guide and she was delightful. She has personal history in the areas we went to! We made 4 stops, and the food was great everywhere. She filled us in on why she chose those places and then gave us many suggestions on other places to try on our remaining days at the end of the tour. Totally worth it!

Our guide Hannah was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. She took very good care of us, and made special arrangements for my husband who needed gluten free food from our stops.

Our guide was great! It was wonderful to hear about the history of immigration in the lower east side and to experience the food traditions of those neighborhoods.

Hannah was a lot of fun and shared many local NYC tidbits along with the history of the city as it was settled. This was a “history tour with food” not a good tour with history in her words, and it was perfect. Dumplings, cookies, Puerto Rican empanadas, and classic pizza all hit the spot. But the star was the city itself and it’s rich history. Thanks Hannah!

The Walking Tour was absolutely wonderful! Our guide Brian had a passion for both history & food which made the tour exciting! Plus he had the ins & outs on where to eat in the city & was full of suggestions. I would recommend this tour for anyone with a love of food & history.

Brian Hoffman is the BEST!! He was so informative in an entertaining way. He is a wealth of information and willing to share his knowledge. I didn’t want the tour to end! I loved all the stories and history and the way he integrated it with food. All the food stops were unique and made sense with the history. I can’t wait to come back to New York City and go on another Brian Hoffman tour!!
