Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

We went on this food tour to celebrate our mom's 70th bday. Susan, our tour guide, was so energetic and fun. She really pulled the group together. By the end, we had 9 new friends. We learned so much about the area and each restaurant we stopped at. The food choices were well chosen and divine. This is our 3rd NYC food tour and it did not disappoint. Definitely a highlight of our NYC trip!! Can't wait for the next one!

Started our tour at Montes and sat at bar before tour began with the chef He was so warm and welcoming and offered my daughters and me some of his bread to taste with his own olive oilJust fantastic and a great beginning Our guide was super as was the group we joined We all got along so well and laughed and walked and ate for four hours! Great way to spend a day in NY Have visited NY at least 25 times and have never done something like this Would definitely recommend this tour to get an insight into the area and it's history and the opportunity to visit old establishments for culinary delights Left full of food friendship and fond memories Thanks

Our group of 10 had a terrific time on this tour. The history and information about this part of the city, along with the fantastic food was a highlight of our trip! Raheem did a fantastic job of telling us about different places and restaurants along the way, many of which we can't wait to go back to. Seriously, well worth every penny!

A very nice tasting tour. We strolled at a slow pace, getting to see and learn quite a bit of interesting information about the neighbourhood, which for me was just as important as the food. The food samples weren't spectacular by any means, but filling and tasty, and nicely varied.

The guide, Susan was very friendly! She made you feel very at home in the village; like you were meeting friends. Each stop was very informative and the samples were tasty and generous. I would recommend this tour.

This is my 4th Foods of NY tour and the first for my two friends. In fact, their first ever food tour. They are completely sold on the concept, in no small part due to how good this tour was. Foods of NY does it absolutely right, with the perfect combination of food, facts and fun. This tour of the Village and SOHO was no exception. Susan was fabulous and had addtional non food related info to share too-such as the place she purchased her awesome scarf!! Yes, we did run right to the store in SOHO and buy them!! Thanks Susan!!!! Seriously, the food was more than plentiful and delicious. I would recommend ANY tour this company offers-it will change and definitely enhance your NYC experience!!!

Great neighborhood exploration of tastes

Loved the personal touch and history of the neighborhood. NYC can be overwhelming but to take it to this level gives it a richness that can be missed. Loved the food and flavors, wow were we full. Susan felt like a friend and gave my sister Maria and Maria from MN a wonderful impromptu Birthday treat at the Cuban rest. A lovely flan decorated with a birthday wish. The group size was just right for our tour we were able to make new friends. My only recommendation would be to add a little more time to the sit down locals, in order to socialize more with fellow tourist. We love to make new friends. Wonderful experience

Great Guide, lots of good food

A really interesting tour with lots of yummy tastings. Don't eat lunch! And you may not want dinner either, as the amounts are quite generous. Good variety of food, good pace with some stops long enough to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant and relax. Susan was a wonderful guide!
