Great way to learn about an area

Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking

50th Birthday Celebration
Sat, Mar 22  12:30 PM mlorenz Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
There were 8 of us together from the Northeast area, celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had a wonderful time - our guide Susan was awesome and the other members of our group were really fun. We loved learning details about the Greenwich Village area - and absolutely loved all the food! Every piece of the tour was well thought out, and it flowed so nicely together. We were stuffed at the end !! It was the perfect start to our birthday celebration in NYC!

Over the past year we have taken 3 of the Foods of NY tours booked through Zerve and plan to take others on next visit to NYC. Central Greenwich was very different from the Original Greenwich which we took a year ago. As described, there were no overlaps. Tour guide was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and interesting. There were numerous tastings and they were very generous and delicious!

Great tour of the central village

Food tour that FILLED US UP and provided some rest time (sit-downs at restaurants) and some exercise, walking around the village, but not at a breakneck pace. Visited about 9 different shops, went back to a few after the tour. Also got some interesting info about the history, architecture, culture, etc of the area. Would highly recommend.

Our tour guide Diana was awesome! Great sense of humor and had some great history to share along the way. Each restaraunt was outstanding! Loved the fact that we had many opportunities to actually sit down and the food was delicious. They did no skimp, they gave us actual meals and nice size portions ! Well worth the money and then some! I would do this tour again and highly recommend it to any tourist or New Yorker!

This tour was so much fun. I loved the information our guide, Susan Volchok, provided about the area. The food was totally delicious at all locations. My favorites were the pizza, the chocolate tart and the pasta, however, I loved everything. My husband and my 19 year old son also enjoyed it. Would definitely sign up for another tour!

The best of NYC!

This was a great tour. Raheem was full of energy and was very knowledgable on not only the food we were eating but also on the area we were walking around. We found out so much more than just using a guide book and it was SO much fun! He was very inclusive with everyone and tried very hard to give everyone a good time. I would definitely do this again!

The best food tour experience!
Fri, Mar 14  12:00 PM GildaCasino Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Having enjoyed food tours in France, Spain, San Francisco, New Orleans, and with this being our 5th food tour in NYC over the years, I would have to say that this was hands down the best experience! Raheem was our tour guide par excellence and while we did enjoy all the tastings that were included, Raheem definitely added to our enjoyment of the entire experience as he was a very knowledgeable guide, had an awesome sense of humor, and so easily managed to establish a rapport with the entire group. It's fortunate that we skipped breakfast because there was so much food, unlike our tour the day before (with a different company) that left us quite hungry when it was over. We appreciated the glass of wine and the tasty mojito that we were able to order (for an extra charge) at two of the stops. Plenty of opportunity for bathroom breaks too. I wouldn't hesitate to do this tour all over again!!!
