Would have liked more time and a little slower pace. But I do know that the length of time was go I enjoyed it so much I could have gone on for a few more hours.

My first impression was when our tour guide approached us with a stained up sweatshirt. He first leads us to a back alley of Carlo's bakery and pull out of his backpack a box of cannoli from Carlo's bakery and hands everyone, one and that is the extent of Carlo's bakery (tour). We proceed to walk to our next stop... More

We had a wonderful time with our guide, a native of Hoboken, whose family had a long history there. In the group was a couple who'd grown up in Hoboken so it was a combination of learning about the new and old from these wonderful people whose perspectives ranged over many years. The food was terrific, the group fun to... More

My husband and I took his parents and our two teenage daughters on this walking food tour. His parents grew up in Hoboken and hadn't been back to visit in many years. We had always heard what a special place Hoboken was, and how great the food is! Wow, this tour was great for anyone who likes to eat, enjoys... More

Compared to tours I have taken in NYC, this was so not good. Our tour guide could care less. He explained next to nothing: no history other than a one line statement. Cleanliness was out the window, he wore a dirty tee shirt, used a cutting board straight out of his back back, not clean, that that he cut cheese... More

We were a group of 8 and all were disappointed especially in our guide. We had Avi and he had no personality whatsoever. He would walk ahead, we would catch up, he would spew out a couple of facts about the stop and would unenthusiastically move us along to the next stop. Don't understand why we stopped at 2 mozzarella... More

Went with our friends and their teens on this charming, fast-paced tour of Frank Sinatra's hometown. Started with a Cake Boss cannoli (always a good start) and tried delicious pizza in Grimaldi's (though more of a sliver than slice), wonderful fresh mozzarella, great coffee at Empire, and the highlight was a stop at Lisa's Italian Deli where we met Tony....

Unimpressed, could have mentioned there would be no place to sit. No need for two places with mozerralla. Lisa's was excellent.

We had a very nice time. Pat told us a lot of stories and history. There was plenty of food to eat. The stop at Lisa's Italian Deli - sandwiches and mozzarella Delicious. He was a very good host. The owner of Garibaldi's was very nice and the pizza very good. It was a beautiful, fun day. We didn't get... More

A stop at Lisa's was the best part of the tour. I think the tour could use at least one more stop since the chocolate stop was not very cooperative.
