"The food tour was not what I imagined it would be. There was more walking and stopping to look at old buildings around Hoboken, than there was actually tasting of food and learning about the history of the restaurants in Hoboken. I thjnk it should've been more restaurants and tastings than stopping at random places around Hoboken. I don't think old buildings converted into condos have anything to do with history and tasting of food. It was disappointing."
