Andrew not only brought us to a variety of food vendors, he also knew them personally and shared their stories. He provided insight into the demanding and highly regulated street vendor business. Be ready to be very full when you end the tour!

Hello Anne, I am overjoyed to hear that you had an amazing time on your food tour! It makes me so happy to know that you were taken such good care of by your tour guide and that you had the chance to explore New York and all it's delicious food. It sounds like your day was truly filled with flavor and fun! Regards, Briana
Amanda - was a fantastic guide - we were the only people on the tour so we got to ask lots of questions and it was a great conversation between the 3 of us. She truly seemed to care about our history and background and was able to speak freely about the food cart situation in NYC. She enriched our knowledge of the different types of carts, trucks and kiosks!!! BTW the food was great and we were stuffed at the end - the Pork souvlaki were to die for

Cindy was personable and knowledgeable! We had a great time!
Our guide (Brian Hoffman) was very friendly and knowledgeable, and made the interesting and tasty 2 hours fly by. One of the highlights of our trip to New York.
I absolutely loved my walking tour of the street vendors in New York. I didn't expect to get so much food or gain so much knowledgce about how it all works. Very, very happy and would highly recommend to anyone.
