Our leader was very knowledgeable and provided more information than I expected. The food was all very good, and we were full at the end of the tour. A friend recommended this tour to us, and it was one of the things we liked best about our trip to New York. We will recommend to others.

This was a great tour, my husband and I learned so much about the area. We would never have gone here on our own. We went to Monte's restaurant the next day for supper and it was absoulutely fantastic!!!! We recommend it highly and another bonus, it was moderately priced.

We really enjoyed the SoHo, Greenwich Village food tour last week...It was a great way to see the area and taste some excellent food at the same time..Our guide was great (sorry, i forget his name)..but he said his family comes from Pakistan.. Anyways...everyone i told said when they come to NY, they will definately book the tour. Loved the Jamaican Patty and the India Paratha the best!! Good job!

This was my 3rd Zerve walking tour and they all have been excellent. The guides are very knowledgeable, pleasant and you can tell that they love their job. My family and I love hearing about the history of one of the greatest cities in the world. Highly recommend these walking tours for locals and tourist alike.

My wife and I could not express in words how much fun, food, information and history we had and absorbed during this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We are presently talking about our next trip to New York City, and will be taking another tour and bringing friends. Thank You So Very Much

This was our second tour. Our first tour (last year) was of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District. This was every bit as wonderful. I learned a tremendous amount about the Village...names and places that I've heard of for years..got to see and learn the history....the food tasting was amazing too!!!!

We had a fantastic time on this tour. The food was delicious and interesting. The guide was extremely knowlegeable about the area. I found the historical part of the tour as interesting as the food part (and I loved the food part!) It was a fun way to spend an afternoon and a great way to learn about some eateries to revisit in the future.

Great guides, good information, too much standing
Sat, Sep 9, 06   12:00 PM adeleowatz Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Other
I loved the information that we were given about the area that we were in and the restaurants that we could return to to eat,d rink and derive entertainment from. The down part of the trip was a lot of standing around instead of walking or finding a spot where we could all sit and listen to the guides. The food was good and they accommodated individuals who were vegans and disliked spicey food. Very considerate. Some of the portions could have been larger or peraps have two small ortions of two different foods at the same location. I wold reccommend this tour to others in the New York area as something to do when they first arrived so that they had options for dinners and entertainment away from Broadway.
