A total blast!

My spouse and I had so much fun! The tour is perfect at 3hrs long. The people on the tour with us were a pleasure to meet as well. And the food...you think you will only get a little morsel here or there, but we were so full by the end, I could hardly manage to eat the yummy dessert tart we got. It was all very tasty. The tour guide was informative, funny and friendly. The facts and trivia about the area we toured was very interesting. We will definitely do more of these each time we go back to NYC!

combined with a little history, this food tour of Soho and Greenwich Village is highly recommended. Our tour guide, Rahim was excellent..

The guide on our tour was excellent. He was very personable and had knowledge of the area. He gave information about the neighborhoods as well as history behind the establishments that we visited. He was an asset to the tour. The food portions were much larger than anticipated. I would recommend this tour.

Entertaining out of town friends for the weekend and wanted to do something a little different. Found this tour on Trip Advisor and the reviews sounded good. We were not disappointed!!!! Susan was our guide for the day and we loved her. She provided the perfect balance of food and Village history. Two members of our group were food loving 15 year olds and they loved her too! Skip breakfast and arrive hungry because the tastings are substantial. The walk was easy, so this tour was perfect for everyone. My husband, son and I can't wait to book another tour!

Great time in Central Village/SoHo

We had a great time in Central Village and SoHo. The food and/or drinks at every stop were delicious. I already want to go back to NYC to eat at all of the restaurants we went to, especially Masala Times. Susan was a really great tour guide. She was funny and helpful. She gave us suggestions for where to go after the tour and gave us directions. This was my second Foods of New York tour and it was just as much fun as my first.

Bari, our tour guide, provided a very interesting background and history of the area. I was exposed to new places to which I will return.

Barri, our tour guide, did an excellent job. The entire tour was wonderful - food stops as well as non-food stops were all we hoped they would be. We will definite talk to our friends about this tour and, hopefully, make it an annual event for our group!
