Come and explore the World's Borough!
Fun Fact: 138 different languages are spoken in the borough of Queens, with a population of around 2.4 million residents.

To begin this foodie heaven tour, we will meet in Manhattan and cross over to Queens together on the train. Once you get off the train, you will immediately feel the vibes and pulse of this predominantly immigrant community. From there, we will walk down 74th street, where I take you around the neighborhood. Walking along 37th Ave, we will stop at different spots along the way and I will share with you the history of this community (I call them John's fun facts). Did you ever wonder what makes this community so unique? What's the history behind its story? How has the community changed over the years? Who lives there today? We will walk at a leisurely pace and take it all in. Feel free to ask questions. We will then We will immerse ourselves in cultures from around Latin America through their food, including:
-Colombia
-Mexico
-Uruguay
-Ecuador
Come hungry! We promise you will leave full.

These places are not big restaurants or have big flashy lights the way they are in Manhattan. These are local places; owned by members of this community. The places we will visit are owned by women entrepreneurs and first/second generation immigrants.

John and Luchi are both Airbnb employees, friends, and foodies.

John is a native New Yorker. He moved back to New York in 2014 after living a few years in Washington DC. He has always been a foodie. His grandma instilled in him a passion for cooking & eating. As a kid, he would go with his family and try new places up and down each neighborhood in Queens. He immediately fell in love with Jackson Heights. Its history intrigued him, it's heartbeat electrified him, and its food impressed him.

Luchi moved here when he was 12 and at 18, he decided to go to Culinary School. He worked in restaurants, hotels and for the Coast Guard for a little over a decade. Travel and eating while abroad are his passions and he considers that the best way to learn about a culture, history and people.

Thanks for letting us show you our culture through food.

This tour is great. John shares his passion and knowledge of Latin culture, cuisine and history in Queens as well as wider NY historical background info. It opened our eyes to a facet of NY we wouldn't have otherwise discovered. Thanks !

John's experience is so fun! It was beautiful weather and perfect day to explore a new neighborhood. I am constantly frustrated with myself for living in a city as big and diverse as New York, yet never leaving the confines of my own neighborhood. John's food tour was much more than just about food - it was about seeing, hearing and smelling everything there was to offer. From discussing the architecture of the neighborhood to going inside a local grocery store, I was engaged and immersed the entire time. Highly recommend this to tourists or NYC natives looking to try something new. Not to mention the food was unreal!

This was an absolutely wonderful experience!! John was amazing. He offered so much extra information that I wasn’t expecting. All the fun facts helped me feel connected to the people and the area we were visiting. The food was absolutely amazing. This was my first time booking an experience and my first visit to New York and John has set a high standard.

John is so knowledgeable about this area being born and raised in Queens! Loved the personal stories and history along the way. Each location was better than the last. Really well done and had so much fun. Loved that it was a small group of 6. Any bigger and it wouldn’t have been the same. I would highly recommend. I’ve lived in Queens for 4 years and had no idea about this neighborhood and how diverse it was until Johns tour.
