LES Food Tour Review 

4 stars

Eric was our tour guide. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent...the food was also quite good. We had planned on going the KATZ's Deli for lunch. We were too full. Brought our sandwiches as take-out.

LES Walking Tour 

5 stars

Just went on the tour on Saturday 6/15/13. Matt was fantastic, adding wit and knowledge to the tour, and pointing out some great LES history. The choices of food were great, starting with incredible donuts that put the others to shame, coffee, and going on to more lunch type items. The pizza and guac was our favorite and the souvlaki was phenomenal. Great people, gorgeous day. Thanks Matt.

Our Tour

What a disappointment! We learned little to nothing of the culture or history of the area. The 'food' that was offered was 90% sugar and its aggregate would not have satiated a 10 year old. However, the cannoli was fabulous!!!! We felt that the price paid was exhorbitant for what was delivered, even for N.Y.

Found Natalie, our tour guide, to be very knowledgable and passionate about food in the LES and that translated to a very fun and tasty experience.
