You know that friend that’s always telling you where to find the most incredible cheese guava buns? No, of course you don’t. But now you can. Jeff will take you on a foodie’s tour of the world, all accessible by the 7 train. You’ll try seco de chivo, gurer sandesh and plenty of other delectable dishes that are easy to eat but difficult to pronounce.

Style: Offbeat, Wild

I believe food is the greatest medium to communicate and connect.

I'll take you to the most diverse area in the world, and taste our way across the globe. We'll travel from Little Manila to Little India, then the Himalayan Heights to Bogota through Bangkok, exploring only the most authentic foods not made for tourists. In between bites, we'll stop at some of my best kept secret shops for clothing, trinkets, and other authentic wares while we work up our appetites. Every experience is tailored to your needs and interests. Let me know what you're into and we are ready for an amazing afternoon. You can't find this experience anywhere else in the world.

Food and non-alcoholic beverages are included! The world is ours.

This isn't a lecture, people say it's the anti-tour. Come for an insider's experience to the most culture rich place in the world.

Tours may be scheduled Monday through Friday, usually at 1:30pm. Trying to limit to one tour a week. For parties of more than 6, please contact me directly.

I will take you through passageways to the cultures that live here, and cherry pick the most eye-opening, heart-warming experiences. You won’t be lectured, you’ll be a participant in the most diverse area on the planet. Learn more about me, Jeff Orlick, on Full profile

Emi & Fred; Took the Tastes the World tour with Jeffrey and it was great. Jeffrey, knows this area and the people who live and work here so well it was like visiting with family. The food was just great, but it was Jeffrey's knowledge of the food, and the various cultures and people that made it so special.

We had a great time. Tons of food we never would have tried if not for Jeff. We come to NYC regularly but had never been to Queens. Jeff was a great person to take us around. It was clear he knew the neighborhood and the neighborhood knew him.

Very good Jeffy

Cameron M.

This was definitely my favourite tour that I did in NYC! Jeff was super friendly, really knowledgeable and knew everyone in the area. It really felt like a personal experience, something not everyone does which made it really special. The food was amazing, so many things that I never would have tried. My favourite would have to be the avena drink at an Ecuadorean truck. I would recommend this to everyone!
