activity photo

Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Our guide, Rahim was very knowledgeable and answered ALL our questions. He put so much enthusiasm in the tour, one could not help but have fun!!! Mari, to whom I gifted this tour, is vegetarian and Rahim was very thoughtful in supplying her with meals to the best of his ability and Mari was very grateful. We thought Rahim was so good that Mari and I have booked the Sushi tour for Thursday, Sept 27th. I will also book the "original" Greenwich tour in the fall. Thanks for such a great time!

While I throughly enjoyed this tour, I would have liked to have spent more time learning more about the food and culinary aspects of the Village. The cultural information was very useful, but I'd have preferred to have stopped at more cafes, restaurants and eateries. Overall an excellent tour. We look forward to coming back to try another one like it.

The guide was informative both of the history of the surrounding area and the attractions. He kept us moving at a steady but not to fast pace. The food was great and we discovered a lot of new restuarants and shops to visit in the future. Many of my co-workers and friends were surprised and the reasonable cost and the small group. I came back with rave reviews of the experience and will definitely try the other tours!

What a great afternoon. Luckily a few people didn't turn up so the group was smaller than usual, which meant we could hear the very knowledgable guide (Rahim) easier and got seconds of the delicious food samples which were available! Was a good way of introducing folks to an area they had little or no knowledge of. Thanks for an entertaining afternoon.

Another great tour

This was our third tour. The other Village tour had a lot more historic information while this tour combined history with more of visiting the area in the present. I can honestly say that both were equally enjoyable and very entertaining. Learning about this part of the Village gave me some great ideas for return trips. The food was delicious, most of which I would not have tried on my own. Growing up in New York and coming to the Village many times this was a totally new experience for me. I have moved out of the area but frequently visit NY and have not been in the village too often lately. This tour has provided me with a lot of great ideas for visits for myself and my husband as a weekend away, as well as visit with the kids. Thanks for another great tour....we look forward to the new Culinary experiences!!!

Foodies should not miss this!!

Our tour guide, Barri, was incredibly knowlegeable about the history of Greenwhich Village and the SOHO area. Each tasting was DELICIOUS and well planned out! You get diverse tasting from Indian Kathi rolls to Greek yogurt. Our group of 3 spent the rest of the afternoon going back to make purchases from many of the shops! Our group also used the previous years' tour of Greenwhich village to make dinner reservations for this year's New York visit. Our group has attended every FoodTours tour and we hope they keep adding more!! But a repeat tour would be just as fun I am sure!!! We'll be back next year!!!

My favorite activity of the entire trip!

I have taken your other tours as well and they are all wonderful. This trip I also took another history tour that was recommended from a famous guide book and I have to tell you I learned so much more about the history of the area from your FOOD tour than her history tour it was unbelievable. I wish you would consider adding another tour as there were several on my tour that also had been on both of your other tours and were interested in more tours from your company as well. You are clearly the BEST! P.S. Now that I am home, I sure am craving a beef pattie!
