Fascinating blend of history and Gastrominy

We enjoyed a most informative tour with Raheem, who is knowledgable, nurturant, and loves food like we do! The tour is well-organized and fun. It is one of my favorite activities to do as a parent with my grown children. A bonus is that it is equally interesting for tourists and native New Yorkers.

Our guide, Susan, was awesome. She has a great way about her, the perfect tour guide. She was friendly and knowledgeable about the neighborhood and the food. It was a great day! And a great date! I am definitely going to do the other tours. It was a great way to learn about a NYC neighborhood and sample delicious food. BTW, I came hungrey and I was full near the end, could not finish the last 2 samples, and I have a big appetite. Awesome!

Tour with Rahim was Great!!

We toured Central Greenwich Village on Sunday with Rahim and it was excellent! This was my 4th tour through Foods of New York Tours and I've never been disappointed. The food was amazing and I left completely full and satisfied. We had a small group of just 6 and we were able to have a more intimate experience without having to rush. Overall, I was extremely pleased and would recommend this tour and this tour guide to anyone!!!

Great food, culture, and fun

Rahiim was our host again ( I am a repeat foodie) for this food tour and he is full of great history, thoughts, and fun. The food was great and the group mixed well together which always adds to the experience. The rain did not impact the tour too much as we spent most time indoors. The only place that did not jive well with the tour was Negril as it seemed like a new, hip restaurant among a collection of old and new more interesting spots with either history or uniqueness of some sort. The tasting was good there, but nothing outstanding. I was sad to see Joe's Dairy closed/moved. I'll be back with my next group of visitors. Everybody loved it even more than the Broadway show which was spectacular.

Good distraction from the Weather!

WE enjoyed our 3 hour tour very much. It was a dreary, drippy day and we found that we hardly noticed that because we were so interested in the tour and all that we were learning about the city. When we were sightseeing on our own we found the weather much more challenging. Our tour guide Susan was lovely. I especially enjoyed chatting with other members of the group. It was sad to say goodbye.

Nplease pext ptime , one whole piece of the tart! No sharing ! The tour guide was knowledgeable but it was weird he was promoting another restaurant.. Is he getting a commission from them?

This was our second Food Tour and it was great. Our tour guide was Raheem and he was informative and enthusiastic. The food at our stops was very good. The only problem was the weather-unfortunately it was raining during our tour. Next time we are in the city, we will schedule our third tour.

You will NOT be hungry after this tour of the village. I was amazed at how many restaurants and unique food stores existed within a few blocks. The tour guide was knowledgable, friendly, and easy to follow. I will return to the Village to revisit the stores and restaurants we saw, and I will definitely book future tours!
