Best Private Tours in New York City
The 9 Best Food Tours in NYC
Lively tour of the Lower East Side, Chinatown, and Little Italy. There’s a fair bit of walking in this one. Lots of great food and NYC history.
Wonderful half-day tour of Brooklyn food, history, and culture. Tastings vary but often include meatballs, knish, falafel, pirozhki, pierogie, kielbasa, coffee, cannoli, apple pie, chocolate, and some amazing pizza. Plenty of vegetarian options are also available. This is probably the best food tour in New York City. (If it’s sold out, the Lonely Planet Brooklyn Tour is also very good.)
Great tour of a historic NYC neighborhood. Stops include legendary places like Russ & Daughter’s, Katz’s Delicatessen, Kossar’s Bialys, Yonah Schimmel’s Knish Bakery, the Doughnut Plant, The Pickle Guys, and North Dumpling.
Pizza, bagels, cupcakes, artisinal mac and cheese, bread, prosciutto, donuts, french pastries, cannoli, coffee, and more. Great tour and lots of fun. (If sold out try the Greenwich Village Bakery Tour.)
Take a deep dive on New York City pizza. Guides are pizza fanatics. Tour starts in Manhattan and takes you to 4 pizzerias in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. Highly recommended.
The following tours have been suspended as of June 2021, but I expect them to be running again soon.
Get generous tastings from some of the best restaurants in New York. Hell’s Kitchen is the lively and diverse neighborhood just west of Times Square and a great area to learn about the city’s architecture and history.
Fun tour with 4 gourmet tastings. Eataly (the Italian food market) is the highlight for many – but there’s lots to see in this wonderful food district in central Manhattan.
Wonderful mix of city history and superb NYC pizza. And be preprared for some surprising stops (e.g. a Georgian bread bowl and a Lebanese restaurant).
A fantastically fun tour that people just love! Plenty of tastings along with small snacks and chocolates. Visits to top notch restaurants are the main focus.
