Although Saturday was extremely cold, the tour was wonderful! Our guide, Susan, was wonderful and the food tastings we tried were delicious and quite filling.

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!!!!!

We were first timers to New York and found it both informative culturally / historically and a great way to try before you buy when it comes to the cafes and restaurants in the village. Next time we come, we are going to stay in this area rather than in Times Square as it is packed with the restaurants and cafes we love. Susan, our guide, was excellent. She is a lifetime New Yorker and had a wealth of information about the history and culture of the area and the food that relates to it. We would definitely recommend this as a must do experience for food lovers.

We brought our 15yo along for the tour, and were thrilled that she enjoyed the tour as much as we did. Our tour guide was a local, and strove to make our tour informative, interesting and fun. The food tasting were first class and we recommend this to all ages, and walks of life. (We went back to one of the restaurants before we finished our holiday). Though it had been snowing, and could have been uncomfortable, at all times our comfort and safety was of concern. Well done!!!

This was our third (each different) NYC food tour in the past few years! We were again, very pleased. Our guide was great, very friendly, yet professional. The businesses we entered were welcoming. The food was wonderful. Compared to other tours we have taken, this seemed to have the fewest actual food stops, however I believe the servings were bigger at each one. We were a family of four, including our two college aged children that also enjoyed the tour. I would highly recommend this tour, as well as giving the others a try. This will be the best spent $40 in NYC!

A friend and I took this tour hoping to learn some history about the area and to find restaurants for later in our trip. Despite the bitter cold, the tour guide was in a great mood and happy to share all kinds of information. And we ate enough to be full!!

A group of friends came to NYC to celebrate a 50th birthday and we really enjoyed our culinary tour with Susan. The only thing that dampened our tour was the constant rain, but I was glad that we chose a tour that made several stops where we sat down out of the elements. Susan was enthusiastic and casual, which made for a relaxing afternoon learning more about this area of the city. We will definately try another tour the next time with hit the big city!
