New York Waterfront Villages- Brooklyn
To experience a culture one must experience their cuisine and since New York is the melting pot of the world, its vast array of cuisines is its shared culture. Food on Foot Tours takes visitors beyond the tourist attractions to the largest buffet in the world, New York. You'll see the neighborhoods where New Yorkers live and eat. You'll share our passion for all things New York and you'll travel the way New Yorkers do, by subway and foot. This is a midtown neighborhood tour away from the tourist areas with multiple cuisine stops including at least one sweet stop.
2011 & 2012 TRIPADVISOR AWARD OF EXCELLENCE WINNER!
Our New York Waterfront Villages Tour takes you to see New York's Fishing Village, Russian Enclave and Coney Island, New York's Famous Playground By The Sea. This tour has less stops than our other tours but an enticing amount of filling home cooked foods and sweet stops. This tour is a longer length than our other tours because of a longer subway ride down to the waterfront area. You may stay in Coney Island after the tour. This tour will be switched to another tour if severe weather prevents a visit to the waterfront area.
ABOUT THE FOOD ON FOOT TOUR: Our tour is a QUALITY FRESH FOOD EATING TOUR. It is NOT a sampling, gourmet or food preparation and information tour. YOU PURCHASE YOUR OWN FOOD (most people average $10-$15 for food on the tour and the tour will replace a meal) AND METROCARD (subway pass) and since this is first and foremost an eating tour we want you to experience the city and its eateries the same way New Yorkers do. That means THERE ARE WAITING TIMES for food to be prepared and for people to finish. That's why we are a relaxed informal getting-to-know other people, see neighborhoods mingling tour. We are not a small group or private tour (our groups go up to around 35 people when sold out). We are an eating tour with some neighborhood history and NOT a history tour with food. Each stop is a surprise but you are not obligated to purchase items at any location. Because we go to permanent locations we cannot change the geography and "move" the shops, so there is no set order such as savory to sweet or smaller to larger items. There are usually many choices at each location. Many of our stops are at smaller places so there is both inside and outside eating on each tour and walking with food. Remember, we are FOOD ON FOOT so many places do not have seating and bathrooms are available but limited on each tour. Please remember our tour includes the subway (most NY subway stations are not handicapped accessible) and plenty of walking. If you are handicapped please call us to find out how we might be able to accommodate you. Part of the tour time involves traveling and a tour introduction period. Tours are rain or shine. Tour times are usually accurate within 15 minutes but we cannot control circumstances such as mass transit or unexpected restaurant issues that are out of our control.
