We really enjoyed our tour and tasting of central Greenwich village with Susan. She was very knowledgable about the culture and food experiences in the area. In addition to telling us about the aspects of the tour, she also gave us ideas about many things to do in the village. She communicated clearly and knowledgeably with humor. When she wasn't talking to the whole group, she spoke with individuals, making us all feel comfortable and welcome. We have and will continue to recommend these food tours.

Some of the places were closed on a Sunday so don't go that day! Guide named Raheem talked too much and promoted his wife, his favorite restaurants that weren't part of the samples. tour. Got bored with him. But I've taken several of the companys tours and ALL of them have been great. That's why this was such a disapointment.

This was the fifth time I've done a tour with Tours of NY and it didn't disappoint. Our tour guide, Raheem, was informative and humorous and full of fun facts about the area. The foods were diverse, delicious and plentiful. No need for dinner that evening, that's for sure! These tours are well worth the time and money. Don't hesitate - do it!

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!
