Best Tour of My Trip
Mon, Oct 21, 13   12:00 PM Colleen3 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Autumn in New York, an outstanding local guide, and amazing sampling of Italian, Cuban, and French food - what could be better? The three hour walking tour was well planned and the rich history of Greenwich Village and a bit of SoHo shared by our guide, Susan, made for a very pleasant afternoon. My next visit to NYC will include another Foods of New York Tour.

Nice blend of food sampling and facts about the neighborhood. Noise and fumes from trucks was only downside.

Great Greenwich tour with great guide

This mid Sunday Greenwich & SoHo tour was a fabulous experience, in large part due to our tour guide Raheem. He was enthusiastic, fun and knowledgable and knew all of the venues he took us to so well. There were more tastings than we expected and they were all great - we certainly didn't need a big dinner that night ! This experience had been recommended through other Canadians and we will pass on the tip to add this adventure to a trip to New York City.

Fabulous walking tour with Susan

This was our third walking tour in New York and it didn't disappoint. Susan was very informative and the tour covered alot of ground. Food was excellent and plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed, would recommend it, and because of it, we'll probably stay in the area next time we visit.

So-Ho Food Tour Hit the Spot!

Susan provided a great combination of great food and history of the area. Our favorite tour previously had been Chelsea Market, but this was equally interesting and delicious. There was not one thing to complain about except that we were stuffed (happily).

great food and plenty of it!

We loved the variety of the food and the history of the places we visited. We love the stories of the SoHo area. Susan was a great guide. She was personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend. This was our 3rd food tour and we look forward to doing another one the next time we are in the city. There was so much food we had to cancel our dinner reservations.

We really enjoyed the combination of eating, drinking, learning about the areas and just walking through the neighbourhoods while making a mental note to come back and explore on our own. Great afternoon.

Tour guide fantastic, food very mediocre

Thought the guide was very informative, but went to your Greenwich village food tour last year, and the food was far superior to this one!! Realize this is an ethnic neighborhood, but would have preferred other choices of restaurants. The sandwich was delicious, tart cake was very good!!!!

Great food; wonderfully diverse

Great food; diverse selection; terrific and knowledgeable guide. We took friends from the UK and had a very memorable day. We highly recommend the tour. We can't wait to do the Chinatown tour. We have done Greenwich Village with the focus on Italian foods in the past and thorooughly enjoyed it. But what we especially liked about the Central Greenwich Village/Soho tour was that we had Italian, Indian, and Jamaican, all within a short walk and all wonderful.
