Can't thinks of a better way to spend an afternoon

Our guide, Susan, was knowledgeable and very interesting. The food was plentiful and delicious. I wish we had done a tour at the start of our visit so we could have returned to one of the restaurants for a meal.

Third walking tour

I just took my third walking tour with Foods of NY. This time I took my son and his girlfriend who live in NYC. It was as enjoyable as the first two. Even though I previously took the Central Village/Soho tour, it was a bit different as it was a Sunday and last time it was a Saturday. I would highly recommend these tours. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and make the experience so interesting and fun.

Great tour!

My daughter and I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Susan was very informative and she kept things at a good pace. We have done two other food tours and I think this one was the best. There was a lot of food and very good variety. I was more familiar with the West Village before the tour and it was really great to get to know the Central Village a little better. There is so much diversity in the resturant choices, I can't wait to try more of them when I come back to New York. I highly recommend this tour!

Varied delicious tastings combined with helpful insights into the neighborhood and a smattering of local history to boot. Our guide Susan was fantastic. It was a great way to learn a bit about a specific region within the city. This was our second tour and we plan to take others as well. It is highly recommended. All 4 of us loved it.

Excellent food and good historical details

We were given more food than we could eat. I wish I'd paced myself early. All the food was quite good and diverse. Our guide was Rashid, and he was full of information and enthusiastic. We learned lots about the neighborhood and discovered spots we would have never found without Rashid's guidance. We agreed we'd do another Foods of NY Tour next time we're in NY.

Worth Doing while in NYC
Sat, Oct 1, 11   12:00 PM Annalisel Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Four of us, three from Vancouver B.C. and one from Toronto, ON were on our once a year ladies getaway. We were all impressed with the knowledge, enthusiasm, organization and humour Dianna shared on our tour. Samples were ample and delicious, shopkeepers welcoming and proud. Dianne was passionate about her native city. Discussion afterwards led to only one suggestion for improvement, (and I made this suggestion doing this tour three years ago), that at the beginning of the tour, when she introduces herself to the group, she ask everyone to share their first name and where they are visiting from, a great conversational starter as we spend three hours walking, share food and learn neighbourhood history together.

Don't miss this food tour

What a great tour, great food, great tour guide and learned so much about the history of the village. I went with a group of friends and we really had a great time. There was no food that wasn't absolutely delicious and I plan togo back to some of the stores to make purchases and to eat more. Learning about the history of the area only enhanced the experience. Thanks you to our tour guide who was so entertaining as well as informative. This is my second food tour with this company and I plan to do more.

wonderful food tour

We went through Zerve to purchase tickets for the food tour. The instructions were easy to understand. We made a copy of the tour voucher, presented it at the time and place specified, and ate our way through the tour of Greenwich Village. We thoroughly enjoyed the foods and restaurants presented to us. Didn't need to have dinner that night. Rahim was a great host.

Central Village

This part of the Village is quiet, beautiful and has many quaint restaurants and shops. I really am going to stay down in this part of NYC, next time I visit.
