Interesting tour combining food (lots of it--ok to skip breakfast to get ready), architecture, history and local color. Well planned, and very good guide (Raheem.) Also good range of food--Italian, Cuban, Indian, desserts. Highly recommended. Have taken other food tours--this is easily the best.

Susan took us on a lovely historical and culinary tour of Greenwich Village. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and the 3 hours seemed to go by very quickly. The foods ranged from ethnic street type to Italian, Cuban and fresh fruit drinks with a few more in the mix. Such a great sampling of the vitality of this neighborhood. We loved it.

This is the 2nd food tour I've taken, and it measured up to the excellence of the Greenwich Village tour I did two years ago. Our guide was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly, accommodating, as well as entertaining. The portion sizes of our food samples were more than ample--we were stuffed by the end of the tour! The food was delicious. Learning about the history of the area and the number of famous people who got their start here was interesting. Of all the sight-seeing and tours we took during our 5 day stay in NYC, this was our favorite activity!

Fascinating and Delicious

Our group really enjoyed the tour. The food tastings were excellent, and our guide was well informed about the area, the buildings, the shops/restaurants and the food. He was humourous and a delight to be with. There was perhaps a bit more food than we really needed in terms of overall quantity, but it was all so good, we would not have wanted to miss any of it. We enjoyed this tour very much, and since we were so well fed, we just arranged to have a late dinner after our theatre outing that night, which worked out really well.

Wonderful tour with a great variety of tastings

We visit New York annually, and this is the first time we took a culinary walking tour. We chose this tour because it offered the greatest variety of food tastings. We expected minimal amounts of food, but were surprised at some of the tastings--they were much more than single bites. We were so full after the tour that we skipped dinner that night before going to a play. Our guide, Rahim, was great, and we learned a lot about the neighborhood and its history. We are looking forward to trying one of the other tours on a subsequent visit to New York.
