just ok

I have done this type of Food tour twice before. Both other ones were the Greenwich Village Food Tour. This one was my least favorite of the three. I felt the food stops was rushed and too much time spent on history. When it came to stopping for food our tour guide kept telling us we had to hurry. When we were able to get a drink (alcoholic) she told us to drink up as we did not have much time left. So at that point we did not really enjoy the food or drink since we had to inhale it. The tour guides i had before were better and friendlier. Overall just ok. I would do it again however since I know I enjoyed in the past.

Despite a windy day in NYC we had a great time! Our tour guide was spectacular and the tour was both fun and informative. My son who is a local New Yorker enjoyed himself and found several new spots to check out. I look forward to taking another tour with "Foods of NY" during our next visit this summer.

Being poor grad students, we were a bit hesitant to spend almost $50 on a food tour, but after experiencing the diverse array of delicious foods, learning interesting historical info about the neighborhoods/local shops, and being entertained by the rather humorous tour guide...we feel it was worth it! We also appreciated the fact that the tour company/tour guide was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions.

Highlight of our long weekend!

We were lucky to have a cool but sunny day for our tour. I wouldn't recommend walking around in wet / foul weather. Three hours seems to be a perfect length of time for the walk as you don't get to sit down and rest except at two of the six stops. Wear comfortable shoes! Our guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable about New York and food(!) and she spoke very well to our group. The four of us would take this tour again.

My sister and I took two more food tours with them this October, adding to our two tours last year in New York. We love them!! Not only for food, but for the history of the area and the great stories from the tour guides. We have had excellent guides, plenty of food and good timing on bathroom breaks! We only have the Chinatown tour left to do.....maybe next year!!

Rajish was an excellent and informative guide to the village and Soho. We plan to take the china tour next time we are in town. The food, the sites and history made the three hours fly by. We left wanting to do another food tour.
