Eat Like A New Yorker! Like having a friend in NY!
We believe in Food Tour Freedom. Choose what you like and how much. Started by a caring local these unique larger group tours are like a fun excursion. Great New York cheap eats in the East Village! Our very different from the standard food tours have hosted about 40,000 guests and have won the TripAdvisor Certificate Of Excellence seven years in a row. Our format allows you to meet/mingle with others from around the world on our unique subway/walking eating experiences. Reviewers say take the tour early in your trip for our unbiased restaurant recommendations as we help our guests potentially save hundreds of dollars while they eat great and save real money. Tour includes about 5 stops in one of the great eating neighborhoods in Manhattan. Venture away from the tourist areas with multiple cuisine stops including at least one sweet stop. Food On Foot Tours is a member of the TripAdvisor Hall Of Fame!
What to Expect
This quality fresh food eating tour in one of New York's greatest eating neighborhoods is a different experience from standard food tours. You are on a real eating tour for those who love food and want to experience real New York eating. This is not a sampling tour and you do not stand on the corner and get a piece of cheese, leaving you wanting more. Ticket includes a $15 food credit. You choose what you like and how much by purchasing small items at each stop while spending just $15 to $20 on average for food on the tour and the tour will replace a restaurant meal. Since this is first and foremost an eating tour you will experience the city and its eateries the same way New Yorkers do - by subway and on  foot.
The tour is relaxed and informal as you walk the neighborhoods of real non-tourist New York and make friends with others from around the world. Part of the fun of the tour is that each stop is a surprise but you are not obligated to purchase items at any location. There are usually many choices at each location. Many stops are at smaller places so there is both inside and outside eating on each tour and walking with food. Enjoy a uniquely different experience and tour. See and eat New York like a New Yorker!

A must do

Wish I had done this tour on our first day as Cory’s tips were very helpful and money saving! His passion and enthusiasm makes the tour interesting and the time flyby.

Thank you for the kind words. We are a subway/walking tour so we use the subway. It is a big part of getting from midtown to the non-tourist neighborhoods.

@laura c: should we better have met anywhere in east village, where many guests could have difficulties to find the meeting point, and therefore be too late there? not everybody has always a working internet connection on his/her smartphone for finding a way to the...More

Thank you for understanding why we do not meet in the East Village and why meeting in a more central location makes sense. We also appreciate you letting us know in a separate e-mail that you took another tour away from midtown and most of...More
