What an Adventure

This was our second tour taken having previously gone on the Original Greenwich Village tour with this company. Our guide Susan was fabulous! She was so genuine and really had a love for the area. The fact that she lived most of her life in this area and was able to give all these little insights into the neighborhood was great. The detailed history of the neighborhood, where Bob Dylan had lived and Billy Joel's Sullivan Street song reference, in addition to the architecture of the community made the tour interesting. The food stops were diverse and very tasty. Caffe Dante, Monte's, Cuba and Once Upon A Tart were my favorites. You definitely get more than enough to eat and I would suggest not having a big breakfast in advance of the tour. Susan did such a great job on our tour, that four days later, we were back exploring more of the neighborhood on our own and ran into her leading another tour.

Interesting tour of Central Grenwich village. Tour guide Susan was delightful, inclusive and knows the area real well. Food was enjoyable and atmosphere relaxed. All in all, a pleasant tour. Recommended

If you are looking to get a flavor of the different areas of New York, this is the tour for you. Great way to taste the different cultures. We did the Greenwich Village/SoHo tour and it was delicious. One word of advise, go hungry!!!!

This is my third food tour. They keep getting better and better. This time I took a group of 7 of my friends. They all said this was the best part of the trip. Raheem was our tour guide and what can we say. He was the best! He combines his knowledge with personal experience to make the tour a great experience. Thank you again. We all want to do another one next year and would love to have Raheem.

My group loved the food tour and we will definitely be doing this again. Our tour guide Rahim, not only took us to some delicious spots but told us stories of and history of the area. He also gave us some good ideas for entertainment. The booklet he gave us of other area restaurants and things to do will be a great resource for us when we come back. Our guide was also very entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. This is a must do in NYC!

We had a great time with Susan and our group. The tour was fun and very informative. The food was excellent and the tour well planned. My wife and I enjoyed it and will recommend it. When we are back to NYC we will definitely take another tour.

Very knowledgeable Guide

We were a group of 10 friends of our 1st food tour of NYC and we all enjoyed it very much. Our guide 'Barri' has excellent local knowledge and the food we tasted was very good, except maybe the Cuban cuisine which we didn't much care for. I would suggest changing that stop for a different restaurant. If we visited NYC again we would definitely do another food tour with the same company.
