A Super-Fun Way to Spend the Day in the City!

This was the 2nd tour I went on. The guides are so informed and they communicate in such a fun/enthusiastic way. The food you will sample is truly to die for! And these tours introduce you to places you might have never known about. SO worth the money. I highly recommend going with a group of friends...makes it that much more fun.

After a friend recommended Food Tours of NY we decided to try the Central Greenwich Village tour and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Our guide Susan was really friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the area and we learnt a lot about the village as well as sampling some really tasty food! We also saved some money on some souvenirs from a tea shop we visited which was an extra bonus. Next time we're in NY we'll definitely be trying another food tour.

I have read about these tours on line & a friend recommended it. Our friends went along with us but were a little hesitate. All of us loved our Greenwich Village tour & would recommend it highly. The guide was very knowledgeable & obviously has a love for the area which comes thru in the tour. It was money well spent & made another great memory.

The food was great, and the history and tidbits of info interesting but perhaps the tour was a bit too long - 3.5 hours from arriving to leaving.

I found the tour a highlight of my trip, returned to one of the establishments before we left. The tour guide was informative and friendly. I only wish we could have sat more, was a hot day and I got a bit wilted out on the sidewalk. That is my only complaint, otherwise, I really enjoyed it.

Fantastic time

All five in our group have rave reviews about the tour. Our guide Rahim was amazing with his knowledge, his personable and humorous banter and his relationship with all the people in the restaurants and shops that we visited. We truly felt that we had an "insider's" view of Greenwhich and Soho. The food was great and the history lessons were amazing. We will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something fantastic to do in New York and we will be sure to try another tour the next time we return.

Good selection of food choices and a great coffee bean store! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts about the area. This is more than just walking around and tasting food. Definitely recommend this tour. Food samples were just the right amount to satisfy lunch.

I went on the Chelsea Market tour a couple of years, but liked this one better. The tour guide provided a lot of great information about the food, history and culture of Greenwich Village. It was a great mix of food and it was all delicious!

Our tour guide was wonderful and I can't remember his name but this is the second tour I've taken with him. He is knowledgeable and gave us a terrific time.
