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!

We loved the tour and the tour guide was very good. She answered all of our questions and gave a lot of information we would have never known. It was very interesting. Everything we tasted was just delicious. We all would do it again and plan when we return to NY to take some of your other walking tours and visit some of the restaurants that were intoduced to on the tour. Loved it!

We greatly enjoyed getting to know this area with such a wide variety of food and entertainment options. Our tour guide Diana was very well informed about the area and able to give us local history along with our food stops. We brought home some pasta from Raffetto's and only regret that we didn't buy more.

Tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the area and obviously had great pride and enthusiasm for the neigborhood. The food was so good that we went back there the following night to have dinner at one of the restaurants and then recommended it to friends who arrived several days later. I learned so much and would like to do another tour whenever I return to new york.

Our guide, Rahim, was knowledgeable and accommodating. He gave us information about the history and highlights of the places visited, included some of the famous people who had frequented these haunts. The food and rest stops were timely. The food was tasty and the background of the sites was fascinating.

Fabulous SOHO

What a great way to see SOHO! Tasting one's way through SOHO and learning about it's history is a great way to spend the afternoon. Our tour guide was knowledgeable with a sense of humor. Don't plan on lunch before and maybe...a late dinner would be advised.
