Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Neighborhood Gems+ Architecture + History + FOOD

Our guide (R__) was very knowledgeable and entertaining as well as a NY native who shared boyhood stories and family traditions. Tastings were so abundant that even dinner could be skipped. We learned about not only food preparation and ingredients, but also history of the neighborhoods and family establishments that have been in existence for decades. This is truly a good way to experience neighborhood living (away from the normal touristy celebrity chef promos). This is our second NYC food tour with this company and we recommend them highly.

This was an enjoyable tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, history & present. It is a lot of fun to see an area through the eyes of someone who truly enjoys where he is. The food was very good, too. I would definitely recommend this tour. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Wonderful way to learn about the surrounding area and preview some awesome places to eat. Our guide was great and it came across how much she enjoys doing tours and Diana had great local knowledge.

Our group of 4 really enjoyed the food tasting, very nice variety while walking the Central Village SoHo area. Our guide Raheem was excellent, supplied a lot of interesting, historical information. All of us would do another food tasting tour.

Good tour guide but........

I suggest that tour guides do NOT handle food when talking.. Our guide was excellent, but sprayed when talking. Disturbing when he was holding platters close to his face and giving a description of what we were about to eat!

Lots of food and a great host

Our guide was very knowledgeable and we had great fun with him. The different places we went he was full of great stories about the region, the people and the history of them. And of course knew all about the food we ate and the restaurants we visited. He also gave us suggestions of other places to go and restaurants that had great ratings. We thoroughly enjoyed another great tour. This was our 3rd with Foods of NY.

Great Greenwich Soho Tour
Fri, Feb 24, 12   12:00 PM dfinley Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
This was our second food tour. The first was the Greenwich tour and I didn't think that one could be topped. But this was simply superb. Great local info and culture from Susan and just the right amount of food. The weather was overcast and drizzle, but it didn't detract from the experience. Anyone heading for NYC for a vacation should make sure one of these tours is included in their itinerary. We saw shows, visited museums, ate at great restaurants and saw the sites, but the vacation would not be complete without a NY Food Tour. Can't wait for our next one.
