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

50th Birthday Celebration
Sat, Mar 22  12:30 PM mlorenz Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
There were 8 of us together from the Northeast area, celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had a wonderful time - our guide Susan was awesome and the other members of our group were really fun. We loved learning details about the Greenwich Village area - and absolutely loved all the food! Every piece of the tour was well thought out, and it flowed so nicely together. We were stuffed at the end !! It was the perfect start to our birthday celebration in NYC!

Over the past year we have taken 3 of the Foods of NY tours booked through Zerve and plan to take others on next visit to NYC. Central Greenwich was very different from the Original Greenwich which we took a year ago. As described, there were no overlaps. Tour guide was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and interesting. There were numerous tastings and they were very generous and delicious!

Our guide was an exceptional and knowledgeable local. She was really engaging, providing interesting and informative information as we progressed on the tour. She was happy to answer any and all questions. We really enjoyed the tour, that brought the history and culture to life. The food tasting was excellent and varied, with some options of alcohol to ease things along.

Wonderful Tour

This tour was so much fun. I loved the information our guide, Susan Volchok, provided about the area. The food was totally delicious at all locations. My favorites were the pizza, the chocolate tart and the pasta, however, I loved everything. My husband and my 19 year old son also enjoyed it. Would definitely sign up for another tour!

This was a great tour. Raheem was full of energy and was very knowledgable on not only the food we were eating but also on the area we were walking around. We found out so much more than just using a guide book and it was SO much fun! He was very inclusive with everyone and tried very hard to give everyone a good time. I would definitely do this again!

Great culinary and historical experience!
Sat, Feb 8  12:00 PM mkarageorges Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We are four girlfriends from high school who have known each other over 46 years. We did the tour as a unique way to celebrate one of our birthdays. My daughter purchased this tour as a Christmas gift for my husband, so I already had rave reviews about it from them. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, so we thoroughly enjoyed learning all of the historic facts about Greenwich Village. There was a very nice variety and ample quantity of food to taste - we really enjoyed it all. An added treat was the gentleman playing classical music on a baby grand piano in Washington Square; we would have liked more time to listen to more of his playing. You definitely get your money's worth, both in quantity and quality. Everyone had a fabulous day and we will be recommending the Foods of NY tours to our friends and family. Thanks for a great experience.
