Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I took the tour with my husband . I recommend this tour to any tourist or local that wants to know places with good food in the city. Our guide Adam was awesome, he took us to places that I passed by before but I have no idea they were there or that they were that great. I liked the food we tried and also I liked to know more about the history of the places we passed by in the West Village. Thanks Adam for the great tour! We had a great time! See you next time!

This is an absolute must do!! Jonathan was our tour guide and he immediately made the tour personal by remembering everyone's names. He was super super informative and didn't just discuss local food but also added value with lots of other interesting stops and chats along the way. We learnt alot!!!!!!

The food, oh my goodness, the food - amazing!

5***** highly highly recommended!

Jonathan did a great job of bringing the Village alive for us. The food, the past, and the present were all well-represented. Jonathan set the tone with his pre-tour texts — he was friendly, accommodating, paid attention to details (which resurfaced during the tour!), and funny. As a result, he recognized us, as we approached him at the meeting spot, and greeted us by name. Throughout the tour, he made a point of continuing to address each participant by name and had conversations on a personal level with all of us, including our teenagers. His detailed knowledge of the restaurants (their histories and specific details of the ingredients and food preparation) was impressive and added much to the experience. He also shared many historical facts about the neighborhood, placing poignant emphasis on the plight of restauranteurs during the pandemic. Jonathan was a superb host!

I'm not from NY, but rarely do any "touristy" stuff in NYC when I come visit at least 2x/year especially since all of my friends there are locals, however, I'd highly encourage everyone to go on this tour. Adam was an awesome guide, the food was awesome, the bits of history that we received along the walk was super interesting.

The food was plentiful and diverse and you have an opportunity to buy drinks at a few of the places if you so desire!

Beside the food, Adam really made this trip special. He was personable, funny, and had good relationships with the restaurants (especially Bleecker street) that really puts the icing on the cake. You can tell that this company respects the restaurants they patronize which is a very important aspect to me.

Although most people in the group were older, I think those in their 20s and 30s would really enjoy this (My friend and I are 28-29 for reference!)

Hi Staci! This is such a well-written review. We're so grateful that you took the time to share with us. Our guides truly are masters of their cities and their excitement about sharing with you is contagious! We also appreciate you noting that alcohol is an option for our tours. It's a neat perk that makes Sidewalk Food Tours so different! Next time you're in the Big Apple, we think you would enjoy our Lower East Side Food Tour, our Food Truck Food Tours, our Pizza, Beer and History Tour, or our Mad Men Cocktails Experience!

Lydia was our tour guide and she did a great job! I took my 78 yr old mom who is not the fastest car on the street and she was able to keep up just fine. I don't know how far we walked but I did have 8k in steps on my watch by the time we were done! I really liked the broad selection of food and all of the info she gave us about the neighborhood. We had plenty to eat and at the next to the last stop (the falafel one) you could get a BIG half sandwich or just a falafel and I was so stuffed that I just had the falafel but it was nice that they had the option for bigger appetites

We had a GREAT time/tour with Adam! He was knowledgeable about the neighborhood and NYC. Personality above and beyond. It was a rainy Saturday morning and he made sure we were kept as dry as possible. He wanted to get to know us like we wanted to get to know him. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

Jonathan was a fantastic tour guide and the food we had was delicious and representative of the history of the area. Lots of food was included, I was feeling quite full by the end and there were multiple opportunities to buy your own food along the way if you wanted more. Jonathan was great at explaining the storied history of every location along our tour in a fun and entertaining way. Truly a great experience and fantastic way to learn about the Lower East Side on any visit to the area!

Matt was a brilliant host around our tour and kept us engaged, informed and well fed during the 3 hours. The walking was easy paced and took us across famous landmarks and discovered some secrets and gems around the quiet back street of the West Village. Food was great and bigger portions than I expected. Also a good mix across food types, ethnicity and flavours. Thanks Matt, this was a fantastic start to our New York holiday.

We went on a GREAT tour of the West Village with Jonathan - such a fun, insightful and tasty way to learn more about NYC. Jonathan was friendly, knowledgeable and clearly passionate about both food and the rich culture and history of the area. We enjoyed every bite at every stop and all the information and conversation in-between each stop. Highly recommend!
