GREAT INTRO TO NYC FOOD & CULTURE

This is the 4th food tour we have done while visiting NYC - each tour has been a delightful event and our most recent no different. Highly recommend anyone coming into the city to do one of the food tours - it's a learning experience about the culture in the neighborhood you are touring as well as the enjoyment of the bountiful portions you are served as your travel from point to point - Highly recommended!

Our tour guide was good and knowledgeable however whenever we sat to eat she disappeared for a while which made it feel a bit dis-jointed I have done 2 previous NYfood tours and those guides stayed with us and continued to tell us more info about the venue, chef, history etc. etc and of course I know it must be hard to compare to "Kurt" the guide I had on Chelsea Market tour last month as he is absolutely wonderfully entertaining happy thanksgiving tina

This was the second time I did the tour...there were some new stops/ tasting. All of which were very good. Brought 4 others with me (men & women). We all enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide, Susan, was excellent!!

Second time on this tour. Food was delicious, as usual with your tours. Our guide, Susan, was just wonderful. Would highly recommend this and any tour with your company.

We left stuffed with delicious food. Our guide was infectiously friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. We'll absolutely sign up for another afternoon with Food Tours of NY on our next trip to the city!

The foCaffe Danteod was ok compared to the other 2 tours from Foods of NY that I have been on Chinatown and Orginal Greenwich. The history and information and the tour guide were great and enjoyed that part of the tour. The food was nothing to speak of. The coffee shop where we didn't have a tasting was much better then the tea shop we did. The other stops except for the first place CCaffe Dante and the last Once upon a Tart, were not great.

Central Village tour
Sat, Nov 16, 13   12:30 PM Chimby Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This tour unfortunately disappointed all of our group. The stops were rather underwhelming. The Italian restaurant served peen pasta with neither sauce or meat. Our tour guide asked if anyone had heard of Bolognese ? Really! And we had a basic meat and cheese sandwich at another Italian restaurant and ended at a rather dirty Caribbean place who forgot our drinks! We walked around only two blocks and them did Washimgton Park. Our tour guide tried, but we thought she maybe has been doing this too long. We have done many of these tours: this one was not worth the time put in.

Great local flavor!

I've been to NYC many times, but decided to branch out with the food tour. Susan was a wonderful tour guide. She seemed very informed, and the food selections were a nice variety. While the tour lasted 3 hours, I considered it a "leisurely" tour. There were a few stops where we had the opportunity to sit down, and we walked at a slow pace. I will definitely book another tour my next visit.

One of the Highlights of our trip to New York

Our tour was on a Thursday and we were going home on Saturday which was too bad because I enjoyed the tour so much I would have booked others if we had time. After a few really cold days, Thursday turned out to be a beautiful day to walk around Greenwich Village. Our group was small - only 8 people - so it was very personal. We had a wide variety of food to sample and enjoyed it all. We are telling everyone that this is a must when they visit New York. Thank you!!!
