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!

Fantastic food tour thru the Central Village/SoHo District. Hard to pick a favorite of the food offerings. Every sampling was excellent. Our guide, Barri, was wealth of knowledge about the area.

Great tour!

We've done food tours from this company in the past and have really enjoyed them! This one was no exception! Our very knowledgeable guide Barri gave us a lot of history of the Greenwich Village/Soho area, plus we stopped for a number of declicious samplings including an Italian sandwich, Indian wraps, Cuban empanadas, pasta, soup, and chocolate tart. I would highly recommend this tour or any of the other tours offered by this group! I can't wait to try another one!

The tour was everything I expected and more! We enjoyed the food, history, originality of the area even in the rain. Rahim was delightful, knowledgable and made us feel like a member of his family. The food stops were superb. Looking forward to another tour with your group.

I've been on several food tours and this was among the best I've been on. The tour guide, Raheem, was animated, fun and knowledgeable... and an experienced foodie as well! The tastings were all great and they accommodated my dietary issues. I usually go on these "with the girls" but I took my husband this weekend and he loved it too!

Informative and interesting tour of the village, it's history and inhabitants. Enjoyed the varied food sampling. Susan our guide was enthusiastic, fun and entertaining. Great way to explore this colourful locale.

Great intro to Soho gastronomy and history

Having enjoyed food tours of neighbourhoods in other cities, my wife and I were so delighted with our introduction to Soho that we'll probably stay closer to this area on our next visit to NYC. Many thanks to Susan and Todd and the restaurateurs for a most enjoyable afternoon. The mortadella sandwich at Cafe Dante was to die for!
