About
We believe in Food Tour Freedom. Whatever ticket type you choose you get to eat what you want and how much you want. We think that's much more fun! Very unique subway and/or walking experiences available as part of a guided public tour or guided private tour that is different from most standard guided food tours. We also offer self-guided On Your Own Experiences which are food walk-throughs of various New York neighborhoods and are designed to help save you money over eating in tourist restaurants. Our self-guided On Your Own Experiences can be used as a tour, a list or as a tour first to sample and you can return to your favorites for full meals. Each Experience also includes some low cost breakfast options near major tourist attractions. Our guided tours are true eating tours, not sampling tours and we also offer restaurant recommendations (as noted in many reviews) on our guided tours to help you eat well and save money for the rest of your trip. You'll see non-tourist neighborhoods in a relaxed manner and while on the guided tours you will be mingling with others from around the world in a larger group format that is much like a field trip. For those who do want to experience great restaurants and save money we offer our Customized Restaurant Concierge Service. This is a personal service available through by contacting us directly that helps you save and eat great based on your lodging location, attractions you are seeing, food preferences and budget. To experience a culture one must experience their cuisine and since New York is the world's melting pot its many cuisines is its shared culture. Food On Foot Tours takes visitors beyond the tourist attractions to the largest buffet in the world, New York. You'll see the neighborhoods where New Yorkers live and eat. You'll share our passion for all things New York and travel the way New Yorkers do, by subway and foot.

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.

Corey was a great guide that provided great recommendations for local NY restaurants, rather than the typical tourist attractions. We visited 5 different eateries. We recommend skipping breakfast that morning, we couldn’t even fit in the last stop due to how full we were! Great way to meet people from across the world as well as try some of NY’s best local foods.

We had Cory as our tour guide. He is a REAL New Yorker in the best sense. He is gregarious and funny but also direct with his directions and instructions to make sure everyone on the tour is on the same page. Very informative and took us to great places and gave us great recommendations for later.

The guide took us to different food places. Some of which I’ve never tried before. Get to taste different flavours of the world in one New York neighbourhood on foot.

The tour exceeded our expectations. The guide took us to places we probably wouldn't go without his recommendation, the food was good and really not expensive, considering we're talking about NYC. The restaurant recommendations really helped us a lot in the following days during our trip. And the coolest thing is that we made friends with other participants!

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tour. We tasted amazing food and my personal favourite was trying an espanada for the first time. Corey is a superb guide and knows exactly where to get hold of the most tastiest food and he is so knowledgeable. I only spent $40 on the food for the whole tour and my daughter and I were full. We were given lots of recommendations for restaurants to try which we will definitely be trying during the rest of our holiday. I would highly recommend this tour. Corey, we had a blast, thank you so much. Vanessa and Megan from Carmarthenshire, Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

The key to eating in New York is pretty simple, don't eat in tourist areas, don't spend crazy money and if you can, ask a local in the food industry. Through our Food On Foot Guided Public Tours and Private Food On Foot Tours and our new Personalized Restaurant Recommendation Service (see our website) we have been able to help tens of thousands of visitors in NY eat great over fifteen years. Knowing where to go is paramount and as the only food tour that gives our guests an unbiased restaurant recommendation segment on every tour it does matter which company you take a tour with. That's why our guests say (in many reviews) to take a Food On Foot Tour as early in your stay as possible. As you know we are the only or one of the only tours in New York that does not take kickbacks from our stops which means you are getting our real opinion. We are so glad you loved our food!

This was my husband and my first trip to New York and we really wanted to be able to experience the local food favorites. I ended up purchasing Go City passes and Food on Foot Tours was one of the suggested recommendations on their website. We have never been on a food tour before and didn't know what to expect. Our guide Corey was amazing!! He was super friendly, knowledgeable and definitely encouraging for the experience of New York local eats. Every stop we went to had a delicious and delightful experience of what makes NY eateries so special. I was surprised to find myself unable to compare the foods to something I would find in San Francisco (where we're from). Each stop left me curious to try even more of New York. It was truly a unique tour and not only would we absolutely go again, but will recommend it to anyone traveling to New York in the future!
