Surprisingly fun

Went on this tour expecting to be eating too much food and thats all. Turned out to be pretty interesting because they also explained the history of the places and we got to have a nice walk. The food tour won't get you stuffed but you will have enough food to be satisfied. In addition you get a better sense of places you may want to come back to in the near future. Shortly after my group of friends went to Peter Luger! Mistake or best idea ever ?!

A wonderful walking tour with an excellent guide who was very knowledgeable about NYC and the area. Delicious tastes/samples of multi-ethnic foods, enough such that we were "very full" at the end of the tour. Would definitely go on another "foods of nyc walking tour" and have already recommended this tour to friends & co-workers!

We really enjoyed Susan as our tour leader. She provided a wealth of knowledge on the area as well as on the food itself. Her passion for the culture, history and food allowed us to experience it on a unique level. Her attitude was diffidently contagious. Would recommend everyone to learn and enjoy NYC on this level.

Susan was our guide, and she really knows the village. Lots of food on this tour, with two sit down stops, which is nice. The mortadella sandwich was terrific, as was the fresh mozzerella from Joe's Dairy. The other food was average. My wife loved the dessert stop. Always like hearing about architecture and local lore, urban myths. Also did the original village tour last year... liked that one better, but you ate more food on this tour.

A highlight not to be missed

I went on this last month with my sister and niece from Mobile AL and we loved it so much I told my friends we needed to do it again. They had not been and it gave me such a fantastic feel for Greenwich Village I wanted to share the experience. The food was wonderful and a nice eclectic mix. Best of all was Susan V, our guide. She is a New Yorker and was irreplaceable in putting meat on the bones of this tour. She is smart, engaging, welcoming and FUN. I will do this company's food tours every time I visit NYC. Don't miss it. By the way, you get terrific bang for your buck. Thanks, Susan. It was a blast! Cheryl Hutchison

For the ladies week in NYC, this was a perfect activity. Two years ago, we enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour so much, the Foods of NY Tours was high on our list for our return. Even though we were challenged by rain, wind, and the cold, under the leadership of Barri, we enjoyed the walk, the tastings, and received a glimpse of being a local. Definitely would repeat and try the other tours!
