What makes our walking food tours so nice?

Best Food. Best People. Best City.

Nice Guy Food Tours was founded by Dante Mercadante, who sets out to disprove the myth that New Yorkers are “not nice” with each and every tour. While touring with our NYC walking food tours, you learn about New York’s rich history while munching on city eats throughout the city streets, stopping to talk about landmarks and eating at the best establishments along the way. Nice Guy Tours is an experience like no other.

“When you take one of my food tours, I make three guarantees: you will leave full, learn something, and have fun.” – Dante Mercadante, CEO

Greenwich Village Food Tour Highlights

In Greenwich Village, we’ll take a stroll through iconic spots like the legendary Washington Square Park and its famous arch while feasting on a variety of different food that’s authentic New York City – from a “real” slice of pizza to the tastiest falafel at the oldest Middle Eastern restaurant in the city.  You’ll experience the best fries you’ll ever taste in your life at Pommes Frites and discover a whole new appreciation for artichokes at Artichoke Pizza. They’ll be walking, talking, cupcakes, and so much more!

Lower East Side Food Tour Highlights

On this Food Tour, you’ll learn all about this ever-changing yet historical section of Lower Manhattan.  You’ll eat at some of the oldest and most famous eateries in all of the city, savoring pastrami from the infamous Katz’s Deli and diving into the best authentic NYC bagel of your life at Kossar’s. Enjoy pickles, sweets, and everything in-between. If you’re not full by the time the tour’s over, we’ll take you around again. We’ve yet to see that happen!

A Tasty Trek

Adam’s tour was great, nice and relaxed. It felt like a chilled stroll rather than a formal group event. My tip - arrive hungry, really hungry! We learnt a lot and even saw Chris Rock…twice. Although he’s not a guaranteed part of the tour!

Awesome Tour! Food Was Great and Dante Was The Best!

I set up this tour for a corporate team building event. The tour was the perfect balance of site seeing, sampling food, and socializing. It wasn't too rushed, and certainly wasn't boring. Dante has great interpersonal skills and was able to remember all 23 of our names by the end of the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Fun Food Tour in Greenwich Village

Dante was a great and fun host, and the "nice guy" tour is appropriately named. Over three hours, he took us to seven food stops in Greenwich Village and discussed the history, culture, and architecture of the village along the way. Among the food stops, there were two VERY different styles of pizza, one of which I had never heard of (and I eat a lot of pizza). It was a really fun time!

Perfect Day Out In New York City

Such a friendly guy, Ian introduced himself to each of the 12 in our group, and he constantly checked in with us to be sure we were enjoying ourselves. The West Village is a fascinating web of small streets and interesting businesses, particularly the restaurants on the tour.

Greenwich Village

Today my husband and I did the Greenwich tour with Dante. We were recommended by a friend, and couldn’t have been happier! Not only did we eat great food, but we learned about the area and history as well. You can truly tell how much Dante loves his hometown, but I was more pleased to see the great relationship he seemed to have with the restaurants we went to. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a taste of the city.

This Is A Great Tour!

We enjoyed this tour! All the samples were so delicious and we were so full at the end! Dante is so friendly and knowledgeable and we felt like family immediately. We cannot wait to purchase the Greenwich Village tour next! Make your reservation immediately, as this is a great way to learn about the Lower East Side and all of its iconic places!

Great Tour

This was our second tour with Dante, and it was like seeing the city with an old friend. Very relaxing and fun afternoon! Loved the variety of foods - a great way to sample many different foods, and Katz deli pastrami sandwich was delicious. Loved the doughnuts from Doughnut Plant and pastries from Russell and Daughters as well. Dante is a great tour guide and this tour is an excellent way to get an overview of the foods of NYC.
