Excellent tour! I definitely recommend this tour for foodies who love food from different countries and also diverse culture. For few hours I felt I was not in New York but in some different countries. Jasmin's knowledge about the area is good and she speaks many languages. I have done some other tours with Guruwalk but this was very different and tour guide was good.
