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

Great Tour - a must in NY!

We really enjoyed our tour. We have been wanting to do this for the past few years & were not disappointed! The tasting was great but the weather was hot! There is something for everyone, although everyone will not enjoy everything. I personally love that area of New York best & wanted to show my friend so it was a good way to find out more information & history of Soho & Greenwich, as well as experience some very different food. I told a travel agent friend of mine to suggest it to her customers who intend to visit New York. It would have been nice to have time to stop for a drink along the way (at our cost), especially in the summer. Our guide was great! Thanks for a great time.

I HAVE DONE THE CHELSA MARKET TOUR WITH CINDY. LOVED IT!! THIS ONE DOES NOT COMPARE.. WE HAD TO WAIT OUTSIDE AT MOST OF THE TASTINGS,THE FOOD WAS JUST O.K.. NO ONE WAS HAPPY WITH IT. THE FOOD IN THE MARKET WAS GREAT. THE DAY WAS THE HOTEST OF THE YEAR. . NOT GOOD FOR OUTSIDE TASTINGS. WE FELT RUSHED. MAYBE THE GUIDE HAD TO MUCH AREA TO COVER. SHE WAS NOT HAPPY WHEN PEOPLE LAGGED BEHIND.. I AM BRINGING A GROUP IN TO DO THE GREENWICH VILLAGE TOUR, I HOPE IT MEASURES UP TO THE CHELSA MARKET TOUR!!

I thought the guide was very knowledgeable and the food choices were very good. This is my second tour and I like that it is small groups. This guide was courteous and certainly good, but not "warm and fuzzy". A little stand-offish. And perhaps that is intended.

I love your tours because they provide a great mix of New York history and culture and introduce great food that we would not be able to find on our own. Great organization of routes and selection of foods.

Great Fun and Very Interesting

The three-hour tour flew by. I have been to Greenwich Village dozens of times from being a teenager on and never enjoyed it so much. The food tastings were all delicious and educational (and filling too). OUr guide was fantastic. He took care of us wonderfully as we traveled many blocks and streets. He xplained every cuisine, stop and other interesting sites wonderfully.

Another Great Tour - Central Village/SOHO
Sat, Jun 9, 07   12:00 PM McCrackenTX Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We have now taken three Foods of New York Food Tours, the most recent being the Central Village/SOHO Food and Culture Tour. All have been outstanding, but this may have been the best of the three. The food samples were very good and ample, and the commentary from our guide (Berrie) was excellent. Highly recommended.

Going to NY? Don't miss this tour!

The tour was not only culinary and cultural, but architecturally enlightening as well. Our guide (Rahim) was knowledgeable, affable, and entertaining. The tastings were well chosen and delicious--things we may not have ever had a chance, or an inclination, to try. The pace was comfortable but not dawdling, and the entire experience, especially the small group, was a pleasure. We went back to the Village a couple of nights later and ate at one of the featured restaurants--what a treat! My wife and I (60-ish) and our daughter (29) thoroughly enjoyed the tour and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. For us, it's a "don't miss" on a trip to New York.
