Fun experience

A very informative and fun activity in a cultural and historical rich area. Lots of interesting titbits and learning more about living in Greenwich village and Soho. The tastings were carefully chosen providing a nice variety and plenty of great tasting food. Overall highly recommended.

wonderful way to get to know the village!

This tour is not just for people who love their food from all over the world, though it does make it easier to find restaurants you might want to come back to later. The snacks are not too big and you get enough time to recover walking it off in between. Anyone with an open mind and interest in the area will love what they hear from the well-prepared guide(s). It was obvious that these two -- we took the tour in its try-out phase -- knew much more than they were telling us; and they told us a whole lot! If you have any specific questions, you can feel free to ask them; these people know their stuff! Concluding, this is a tremendously interesting tour and a great way to find out lots of things about the village; its little traditional shops, bars and restaurants and its interesting histrory.

Great insight to great food!

I highly recommend this tour. Not only did I learn about great food finds in SOHO and Greenwich, but our guides told us about the history of the area, explained the architecture, and told us where to find great comedy, music, and plays. My only regret is I wish I would have taken the tour on my first day of my trip so I could have taken more advantage of their insights of where to go and what to do while in NYC. Thank you so much for the excellent tour. I had very high expectations and you exceeded them. Gary Sipos San Francisco, CA

A friend, My sister & I were amazed ! We have discovered tastes that all of us liked; at the same time, we were discovering this part of the town. The day after we were back at Greenwich village for another taste :) We have appreciated our guide Susanna and, Ooh Susanna, thanks a lot for the surprize on my birthday ! Of course, Washington Square was on Rendez-vous ! Highly recommended !!! Patricia

Great tour! Our guide Susan was knowledgable and friendly. We ate lots of delicious food from a large variety of ethnic groups. We will definitely try to do another neighborhood with this company next trip to the city.

Tour guide was fantastic. Food delish. informative narrative about the area's history and culture. This one was overall great but not as fantastic as the Chinatown & Original Greenwich Tours

What a great experience on a lousy rainy day!

We were met by Susan with a big smile and kind words, and from there the day flowed smoothly. The food we sampled was delicious and the local history we learned from Susan was very interesting! We were so full that we didn't have dinner that night, just a light snack. I've told everyone I've talked to since that day about what a wonderful experience we had and have even booked a walking food tour for our DC trip in April. Great job, Susan and thank you for the cool tour.

This is my fourth Foods of NY Tour and I was again very happy to have spent my afternoon eating a variety of unique and delicious goodies and learning all about the area from a pro. Susan, our tour guide knew everything there was to know about The Village having lived there most of her life. These tours are great and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Great way to learn about an area

Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking
