We thoroughly enjoyed the Food Tour!
Fri, Oct 31  12:00 PM Gaildunphy Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The food tour was excellent. It was very informative to learn about the different types of food and historically how the different food venues came to the area. We also enjoyed the information about the architectural aspects which gave us a broader picture of the people who settled here. The food itself was varied and novel, giving us a wonderful combination of flavors and cooking styles. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn more about the city and what it has to offer at a reasonable price. I have talked to several people who live in NYC and they definitely want to try it after hearing us rave about it.

The guide was very informative and made sure we were together before she would continue her narrative to make sure we could hear her. Delicious food. It was just great. The only thing that would have been nice if there were a map we could safe as a souvenir to remind us where we had walked....

My daughter and I took the Heart of the Village tour with Diana. She was great!! The tour was wonderful and the food was fabulous! We chose this tour in particular because of the variety of foods....it included Italian, Mexican and Indian goodies! The tour description noting that lunch is not needed after the tour is more than accurate...we were stuffed! Definitely will be doing another one!!

I had a fantastic afternoon wandering around Greenwich Village, taking in the sites and history and food. Barri, our guide, had a wonderful knowledge of the area and its heritage and her enthusiasm was infectious. The food stops were all highlights, its hard to pick one stop over the others, there was a great mix of local and ethnic foods and plenty of it! If you're looking for a relaxed afternoon, with great company,and taking in a genuine New York experience, this is for you

A 'must do' in New York

This tour my second experience with Food Tours of New York and it was as great as the first! This is one of the was the best ways to visit areas in New York. Our guide provided us with insight into the history of the East Village that was knowledgeable and witty. The food samples were very generous and delicious and the hospitality of all of the host restaurants was exceptional. The people of the Village were most generous in sharing their home with us, often stopping to add their perspectives to our guide's commentary. It was a great afternoon. I will share my experience with my friends and will continue to book one of these tours every time I visit New York.
