Tasty & Educational

Even though it was a food tasting tour, I found the history of the area and the eateries to be very educational. I grew up in New York and was surprised to learn so much about this relatively small area of Manhattan. Our guide Diana made it very entertaining with her stories of the area. The restaurants were very diverse in cuisine and all were very enjoyable.

A Fresh Burst of Flavor, Culture and Fun!

This tour was outstanding! We happened to have a very interactive group where everyone mingled nicely and had a lot of laughs. That aside, the tour was phenomenal. I am a life long New Yorker so when friends and family come to town to visit I look for things I will enjoy also. I mean, how many times can you go to the top of the Empire State Building. This tour provided a rich history of the Village and great new dining spots I was unfamiliar with. There are great shops along the way as well. The three hours flew by and a great time was had by all!!!!

We previously did the Chelsea Market tour and loved it. This was equally enjoyable. Good food, informative guide, and pleasant people. Great way to spend a day in NYC.

Hot July Summer with Raheem but it was worth it!

This was my first tour and it won't be my last one! Raheem was very informative and, at the same time, humorous, thoughtful, and polite. It was an extremely hot day so Raheem did his best to get us cold water and shade or indoor reprieve from the sun. He was a big reason why we will do this tour again in August with other family members. The food was delicious and the hospitality was genuine. This activity is a perfect way to hang out with your family or friends as long as everyone is mobile. It is primarily a walking tour with a celebration of history and food. There is no better way to understand what a neighborhood has to offer!

Excellent tour

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tour. We were glad we were recommended the tour by friends in Aust. Our guide Susan was not only pleasant she was very informative not only about the food but the area we toured. We were treated with decent food and a informative historical prespetive of the of the area we visited. In short it combined the best of two things food and culture in 3 hours.

Fun way to find new places to eat

We are a New Jersey couple who are frequent visitors to the city and the "Village". This tour led us to new places we have walked past and missed on our own. We will be back to most of them.
