As a group of 4 we enjoyed the food and culture walk immensely. The food was good and our tour guide, Raheed, was very knowledgeable. Would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see a different side of New York.

We had a beautiful Spring day for our tour so walking the streets of Greenwich village was very pleasant. The guide was very knowledgable and shared the interesting history of the Village as we walked. The food we ate was delicious and plentiful and our guides knowledge of the restaurants history made it interesting as well. The tour was well worth the money!

Enjoyed the commentary, the company and, of course, the food. Would book another tour if I ever make it to New York again.

We spent a pleasant three hours touring SOHO. there were about 12 people in the group, small enough to engage in different conversions. It was a thoughtful tour with a delightful guide. She was very knowledgeable and patient with everyone's questions. the food tasting was excellent with a variety of tastes ending with a great chocolate tart. 'We highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in history and trying different foods. The three hours flew by!

This is the 5th Foods on NY Tour that I have done over about a 10 year time period and as usual it did not dissappoint. Our guide Susan was very informative and made the tour a lot of fun. The quality of the food is excellent and it is fun to visit establishments that are "NY institutions". I would recommend it to anyone visiting NY!

Our guide Rahim brought a lot of enthusiasm and love of the area to the tour. I expected it to be mostly about food, but he also brought out a lot about the history of the area which we all really enjoyed. Wish we could have shopped, but I understand the time constraints. Having a bottle of water for each of us was very good. Suggestion: also hand out a small hand sanitizer to everyone.

For the ladies week in NYC, this was a perfect activity. Two years ago, we enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour so much, the Foods of NY Tours was high on our list for our return. Even though we were challenged by rain, wind, and the cold, under the leadership of Barri, we enjoyed the walk, the tastings, and received a glimpse of being a local. Definitely would repeat and try the other tours!

There were too many of us on this food tour. In most places we were squished like sardines in most places. This was our 2nd tour with Zerve. The 1st one was spectacular...much smaller group;better sized places,less hustle and more slower paced.
