Tacos, dumplings, bagels — America would be a food wasteland without the dishes brought here by immigrants. Join this 3-hour New York City walking tour to sample the best ethnic foods in the Lower East Side. But this experience includes much more than sampling delicious foods, as you’ll learn about the history of the dishes, establishments, sites and people along the way from your guide. The group remains small to ensure a quality experience.

Our tour was hosted by Astrid (Ace) of who was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. The tour area of the Lower East Side encompassed mainly China Town and Little Italy although the foods provided also included Jewish and German fare. All the tasters were very good, particularly the Chinese potstickers. The other members of our tour were from various countries /locatio

Bruce gave us a great tour and seemed to know a lot about the culture and NYC. He was able to answer all of the questions the group had. He even sent us an email afterward giving us tips about seeing the city.

The Food and Culture tour would have been better with audio enhancers. We could not hear many of the presentation, unless we were very close to the guide. Also, it probably went a little too long, almost 3 hrs. We had to rush off for another tour.
The food sampling was okay, but would be better, if it started a little sooner.
