Chinatown and Little Italy Food Fest
From US$65,00

Explore two New York neighborhoods renowned for their food culture, Little Italy and Chinatown, on this tasting tour. Follow your guide to learn about the history of each neighborhood through gourmet food samples at eateries loved and revered by locals. This tour means you can avoid the hassle of making restaurant reservations or scouting out the area’s best restaurants on your own.

What to Expect

Start the day on a high note by meeting your guide in Little Italy for an introduction and a delicious cannoli. As you walk through Little Italy, the guide provides little-known facts and stories about the neighborhood’s rich history and culture.

Along the way, sample a variety of Italian specialties from mom-and-pop shops and beloved hole-in-the-wall establishments. A sample tasting menu includes prosciutto, olives, cheeses, fresh pasta, and homemade mozzarella.

Chinatown is a short stroll away. Breeze past the often long lines at one of the neighborhood’s oldest restaurants and sit down for a tasting menu of steaming hot dim sum. After the meal, follow your guide to historic Chinatown landmarks you may not have noticed otherwise.

Finally, enjoy fresh dumplings and traditional Chinese pastries. The guide distributes handouts that include a list of restaurants visited, helpful maps, coupons, and recommendations for when you return. The tour ends in Chinatown.

The guide Mary Ann was awesome! Got no more about Little Italy and China Town

Wonderful Experience! Will do it again. Mary Ann was awesome. Did not like that Trip advisor charged $10 more than the Ahoy website.

The tour runs about 3 hours and they do keep things running on time because the shops expect you at a certain time and have your tastings ready for you
