This tour is highly recommended. It gives a wonderful insight to the area in a way that you just cannot get any other way. Not only are you taken to see some first class eateries, with very delicious samples to eat, but you hear about the stories behind the scenes. We stayed in the area for 2 weeks, and would never have appreciated or understood the place if we had not done this tour. Our tour guide, Barri, was wonderful and knowledgeable and the pace just right.

I had a group of friends who went on this food tour and everyone had a great time, very informative and delicious! We loved each food establishment and even requested vegetarian which was deliciously accommodated! I look at reviews before I book any trip and with that in mind, I highly recommend this tour!

This was our second tour. We did the Heart of the Village tour with Diana and it was great. She was very knowledgeable of the area, she grew up there and was able to put her own personal spin on the tour. She also have us a history lesson that made my mother & I fall even more in love with The Village. These past 2 tours have given us places that we make a point to visit each trip. Nolita will be out next tour!

We did the Heart of the Village tour, which took us to several destinations in Greenwhich (including 7 restaurants and Washington Square Park). Rahim was our tour guide. He was enthusiastic, funny and interesting. All of the food was amazing and I will keep them all in mind for the next time I visit NYC. Who knew traditional Italian pasta used so little sauce?! It was the best pasta I have ever tasted! We also tried tacos, pizza, a mortadella sandwich (which I wasn't looking forward to given the reference to bologna, but ended up being amazing), an indian take on a breakfast burrito and an iced tea and a macaron for dessert. Was definitely enough food and thankfully it was spread over 3 hours to avoid becoming over-full. I am pregnant and my stomach tends to fill easily so I had to share some with my fiance. Howevever, he was extremely stuffed by the end and typically has a large appetite. This tour is definitely worth every penny.
