Children are more than welcome to join our tour, and it's free for any child 2 years or under! We have had many families attend our tours from all over the world, and it has been an enjoyable experience for everyone!

No problem! Just inform our guide before the tour starts.

You will leave our tour with a full stomach, a full mind, and a full heart. We advise that you DO NOT eat a large meal before this tour. Come hungry and wear stretchy pants!

Where do I add my discount voucher?

New York Voucher

I would like to take your tour but it is already fully booked. Is there a way I can do the tour?

Our tours often sell out very quickly. If the date you've requested is not available, please email us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Is there a lot of walking?

We strongly advise wearing comfortable walking shoes. Our tour runs a little over 3 hours. Although we have several seated food stops, we cover a good deal of ground around Bensonhurst as well. The tour's pace is moderate, but if you need a slower pace, just let us know.

I cannot find a way to print the confirmation. Is it OK if I have it on my phone?

You do not have to print your voucher. A confirmation on your phone will be fine!

If I purchase a voucher as a gift, or am given a voucher how long is it valid for?

All of our vouchers expire one year from the date of purchase.

How many people max are on this tour?

Our tour is designed for 10 people maximum. If you have a group of more than 10 people, please email us and we will do our best to accommodate your group.


Your guide will take care of everything. However, if you have a food allergy or special request, please let your guide know. Substitutions may be made based on special dietary needs.

What if it rains or I change my plans?

Unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable here in New York. We do not issue refunds as per our terms and conditions. We also never cancel a booking as long as we have two guests or more on that day's tour! However, we do reserve the right to cancel the tour if we feel the weather is extreme. For more info, see our Terms and Conditions: https://www.secretfoodtours.com/terms-and-conditions/

Can I pay the tour in cash?

You must book directly on our website. We do not accept cash payments. Our online payment is safe, secured and SSL protected.

Why do we need to pay for booking fee?

The booking fee that you have to pay is up to our ticket provider and we can't change it. All our clients need to pay for it upon booking. The booking fee charged contributes to the cost of the ticketing system to provide an excellent service to our customers.

Foreign Transaction Fees

A few banks have charged their customer an extra fee while booking with us (this isn't the booking fee but another fee added by the bank). We think this is unfair, if this happens let us know by showing us in your bank statement and we will refund this fee as a gesture of good will.
