This was our third tour with Foods of New York and we had another great time. We love the amount of food we get to eat while learning about the culture of the area. One negative to this one is we had the same tour guide as we did for the other Village Tour so there was a little overlap in what she told us, but otherwise, it was a completely different tour with different food stops.

Diana was an excellent guide.

However, I had been on this tour a few years ago and I believe the restaurants we visited were better than this time. Some were the same, but some were different. I don't think we got as much food as we might have and the quiche and dessert at the patisserie was not very good in comparison to last time.

What a wonderful, interesting, and fun way to learn about N.Y. and taste some really delicious food, Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining about the history, architecture and restaurants of NY. We learned things about NY we never knew and we are born New Yorkers. I highly recommend these tours, (I"ve been on three) to bring your family, and friends to spend a very pleasant afternoon in the city.

The tour guide was very dynamic supplying many historical details that romanticized the area awesomely. The food was incredible, loving the fuller portions rather than just tidbits (what I had expected). This tour was extremely enjoyable and I would love to try another tour and definitely reccommend this tour to my friends and family.

My family and I participated in this tour and we enjoyed it a lot. The food was fantastic and had a very interesting variety. The pizza and mortadella sandwich were our favourites. It was a very unique experience and I highly recommend it to who ever wish to go to New York.

Great Experience

I live in San Francisco and took the tour with a friend from Toronto. It was an excellent way to re-discover the Village and its history and tasting delicious food from a variety of countries added to the experience. The food samples were almost too generous. A taste of ice cream at the end would have been an added bonus.

Must do
Sat, Aug 9  12:30 PM Ferrymead1 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We had been recommended to take this tour and I must say from the moment we met our tour guide -sorry I can't remember her name - but she could remember all our names and there were 14 of us! We got a great insight into the village as it was and as it is today. The food was amazing, but be warned don't have lunch beforehand! The tastings were not the normal tasting size portions! The size of the group was perfect. I would say to anybody it is a must do!

We enjoyed this tour immensely and already have recommended it to two of my colleagues who will be visiting New York in the next few months. The food was outstanding and our Tour Guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the area. I thought the cost was great value for what we were offered.
