Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Interesting tour combining food (lots of it--ok to skip breakfast to get ready), architecture, history and local color. Well planned, and very good guide (Raheem.) Also good range of food--Italian, Cuban, Indian, desserts. Highly recommended. Have taken other food tours--this is easily the best.

Our guide, Raheem, was excellent. Fun, funny and knowledgeable. He kept us in the shade as much as possible since it was 90 degrees. Food was fantastic.

This is a great way to get a feel for NYC without the hustle and bustle of the major tourist attractions. Nice variety & quantity of foods & flavors. Plenty of historical & cultural anecdotes - not everything was about food. Unfortunately was sweltering that day, but that's just August in NYC I suppose.

Susan took us on a lovely historical and culinary tour of Greenwich Village. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and the 3 hours seemed to go by very quickly. The foods ranged from ethnic street type to Italian, Cuban and fresh fruit drinks with a few more in the mix. Such a great sampling of the vitality of this neighborhood. We loved it.

Excellent second time out with Food Tours

This was our second tour. We did the Greenwich Village tour last summer. Enjoyed this tour even more than the first. Quantity and variety of food was good and interesting. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We took the tour with an adult son and I probably would not recommend for small children. Other than that, a fine way to see the village.

Amazing way to experience the Village!

WOW! This is worth doing. My wife and I had our 11 year old daughter with us, and we enjoyed every minute of this tour. We were running late, and the owner waited for us and took us to meet the group. Susan, our guide, was so sweet and saved us some food from the first two stops that we missed. This was a great way to see the neighborhoods of New York and to learn about the culture, history and geography of this area, all the while munching on tasty morsels from great places to eat. I plan to return and search out these places, as they are THAT good. We ate empanadas from a Cuban restaurant, pasta bolognese from a traditional Italian restaurant, a chocolate pear tart from a bakery, wonderful treats from an Indian restaurant.... Fresh mozarella from a dairy.... Ahhh, such memories are even still leaving me smiling! This tour even included a lovely stroll through George Washington Park. Do yourself a favor. TAKE THIS TOUR!!!

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the restaurants and surrounding areas. He had a great sense of humor and he really enjoyed sharing all that information with us.

Great, tummy filling tour by passionate foodie

Fabulous tour, highly reccomend it. The Greenwich/Soho tour took us through some great restaurant-lined streets and into far more than the advertised 6 eateries. Our tour guide delighted us with a mix of local knowledge about the place, its history, and virtually all the restaurants we passed. This company seems to take its research serious, we heard lots about our guide having gone for tasting dinners, just to make sure they include the best places on the tour: what a great job! Our only regret was to have left the tour to the end of our visit to New York, it would have been great if we could have gone back to some of the restaurants where we tasted food or others that were recommended. We were not surprised that half of our tour group were returning customers, we will return again too! It's a great tour for individuals, families and groups alike. Thanks for providing us with a One of the best tours we ever did!

Great Tour - Worth the Money

We enjoyed our guide and the tour was supposed to last 3 hours and it went about 3 1/2 hours. The tour guide was very informative and provided a very pleasent experience. She did not rush us and all of the food we tasted was wonderful. We weren't sure we were going to like the Indian food tasting and we came away really liking it. We live in NJ and had always talked about taking a tour like this - finally did it and we are now looking forward to our next tour.
