"Rick was our tour guide. He was very pleasant and professional. He had a good knowledge of the things we were seeing and was entertaining. He maintained good control of the large group and kept us on track without being overly controlling. I thought this was a good tour, although I don't know that it is a good "foodie" tour. It felt like more of a Brooklyn tour that you happen to eat on. The bus was very nice, and the driver did a great job as well. I would also suggest that the instructions to "print out the email confirmation" be removed, as that did not seem to be needed. Each email confirmation is three pages, and we had 6 in our party. That's a lot of needless paper being used. No one in the tour was asked to turn these in. "
"Loved it. Our guide and driver were knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious. It was great fun."
"The narrative was informative and fun. The food experience was yummy and well-planned."
