Third time and always perfect

This is our third tour and we've always had great food, a great guide and lots of laughs, and learned lots of trivia about the area. Can't wait till next year to do Chelsea MY only comment is that every time I've booked., only time shown is the noon time slot. We would prefer to book a later time slot and we see that you add times when the earlier one fills up. Wish we would have known this, as we would have booked the later one. But still a great time.

This a "must do" activity!

What a fun way to get a "taste" of the Greenwich Village/Soho area! Our guide was very interesting and full of information about the area. We particularly enjoyed our food stops-sampling the delicious dishes provided and felt the variety of food offered was organized nicely. We would recommend this tour to anyone interested in becoming acquainted with this special historical area!

This is my 5th food tour with this company. I bring my guests from out of town on these tours and they love them. I also enjoy them. All but one of my guides have been really, really awesome. That other one was just okay. The guides make or break the experience. I am happy to report Foods of NY Tours hires some great, interesting people. The food is always delicious and I have begun my regular shopping at some of the sites on the tour. I will continue coming back!

This was so much fun. Learning about the history of the area was fasinating. And the food was excellent and enhanced the experience. It really gave you a taste of the history and the environment. Our tour guide was fun and filled with information. I can't wait to get back to New York and take another tour or two.

This was a very nice tour. We were able to learn a lot about the history of the area and the food was really good. It really made my wife and I want to visit the area again to enjoy more of the food.

Another great tour

My friend and I had taken one of the food tours on our last visit to the City and we were so delighted with the experience that we signed up for the Village SOHO tour this year. We were more than delighted by our current tour. Our guide, Raheem, was wonderful. He was very familiar with the area, the food, the history, the architecture, and the culture of the Village and SOHO. The food was fabulous, but what we most love about these tours, is that it gives us an introduction to the neighborhoods and the unique eateries. We returned to the Village that same night and had a wonderful dinner at one of the featured restaurants. We make a list of all the places we will visit on our next trip to the City. The tours have become a "must do" for all of our yearly visits. A special highlight of this tour was having a slice of the most amazingly delicious cheesecake at BellaVitae(?). Raheem said that we were going to taste the best cheesecake in the world, and he was right!
