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 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.

I had so much fun on this tour! John is a great guide and knows this area inside out. We went to four different places, all of them serving amazing food! Highly recommend it if you want to have a taste of Queen and its diverse culture and lively communities.

I visited from Los Angeles and Had a sense that booking this tour with John would be a great experience. He is very knowledgeable of the Latino/ Asian communities residing in Queens/Jackson Heights. Thanks to this tour I learned some history about Queens and New York overall, and ate awesome food I wouldn’t have explored myself. 100% recommend.

The tour, Latin Cuisine in the heart of Jackson Heights, Queens, led by John (of the neighborhood), delivered more than expected! Pickup was in Grand Central Terminal and the tour takes the subway, with Queens history and commentary, to Jackson Heights where you instantly feel the thriving bustle of this multicultural neighborhood. Walks including the Indian section with its myriad shops and restaurants, unique residential neighborhoods with shared inter-building “parks,” and the Latin section of Columbian, Mexican and Ecuadorean cultures, where you instantly feel the Latin music and energetic beat. Our tour guide, John, is a passionate, informed, thoughtful, energetic man with a great love for his Latin roots and culture and has a grand sense of the Latin Cuisine, all to educate your palette! This tour was brought to my attention by others who loved this tour... now I can bring this vibrant tour to your attention!

Es un muy buen tour para conocer la mezcla de culturas en Queens. John fue super amable y compartio muy buenas historias con el grupo, ademas tuvo la consideración de hacer el tour en español ya que todas eramos latinas. La comida estuvo riquísima 👌🏼 Ampliamente recomendable.

John’s food tour was AMAZING! He was so knowledgeable, and introduced us to so many different restaurants. It was the perfect way to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday! We will definitely be visiting Jackson Heights more often.
