we were a group of 3 college friends meeting in NYC from 3 different states. all women, all 49. this was an outstanding activity! we left thinking we were undercharged :) Raheem could not have done a better job. Very knowledgeable about the area also very enthusiastic about the area. you can tell he loves his job. if we meet in NYC again, would without a doubt pick another tour to take. if this was available in another city, i would purchase tickets. Raheem also tried to keep us out of the way of the locals so we did not get in their way (as best as he could) and did this in a pleasant way. we did still however seem to anger a few locals who made snide comments to the group. really don't think anything could be done to avoid this.

This is our second tour with Foods of New York and it was as terrific as our first. Our guide, Rahim, was exceptional and the food was amazing. We discovered outstanding restaurants and specialty shops that we probably would never have known about otherwise. Even our 19 year old daughter had a great time!

Go on this tour! There were five of us in our group and we all thought it was great, even our 10 year old! We went back to one of the restaurants a few nights later for dinner. Raheem was a great guide! The food was great and the information was excellent! If you like food and New York, you'll enjoy this tour.

My wife and I have been to NYC a number of times and were a little concerned about something so "touristy". But it turned out to be an excellent use of time as well as fun. The food was very good, but the history was even better.

There were six of us visiting New York for my wife's birthday and we were looking for something different to do. My wife heard about the walking food tours and suggested that it might be a fun thing for our group to try. Well, she was right. Everyone in our group loved it. We did the three hour Central Village/SOHO tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job showing us around. We stopped at seven different locations for food tastings. We sampled everthing from soup to main course dishes to deserts. Everything tasted good and everyone in the group felt full by the end of the tour. We also stopped at other interesting and historic places in these neighborhoods. To keep this very short, I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the city.

A wonderful walk

We enjoyed the walks around the neighborhood and especially the two sit down places. One of them Montes, we came back for dinner the same night. Even with a tour book there is no way we could have managed on our own. Two of the sit downs we had a room to ourselves.

Rahime was a fabulous guide - with enthusiasm and fabulous local knowlege mixed with history, architecture, celebrity anecdotes...not to mention the food! I loved this tour and cannot praise it enough. You get to see and experience NYC the way the locals do. Can't wait to go back to some of the places Rahime recommended.

The tour was one of the best things I've done while visiting NYC! We learned a lot about Greenwich Village and had tastes (LOTS OF TASTES!) of delicious treats! Susan was fun and informative...you can tell she loves the city and has a vast knowledge of it. We took her up on some of her advice for other things to do and were happy with her ideas. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in New York City and FOOD!!!!!
