An excellent possibility to combine interests in the historical and cultural development of the area with very good food testing. Our guide Susan was committed and enthusiastic and gave a brilliant tour.

We really enjoyed our tour. Barri did a great job - loved hearing the history of the area along with the food. The restaurant owners were hospitable. Food was wonderful. We would recommend the tour to others and take another on our next visit to NYC.

Susan was knowledgeable, personable and a good communicator. The tour was tasty, tasteful and terrific. We experienced a nice variety of food selections and restaurants. Would definitely recommend. Kudos to you Susan for handling the "irritated New Yorker dog owner so tactfully"!

Had a great time on the food tour.! Be prepared for a lot of very delicious, and diverse types of food. We learned so much about the area, the architecture, famous residents (past and present), and much more. Our guide, Susan was great - articulate, interesting, and very informative. We all agreed that we will definitely return to try more of the fare at the restaurants sampled during the tour.

Our tour guide Rahim (not sure on the spelling) was very entertaining. He definitely made the experience very enjoyable. The history of Central Village/Soho was definitely interesting. Even for a local, there were things I didn't know before I went on the tour. Now, for the food part of the tour. It was amazing. We stopped off at 6-7 different establishments. Each had a history. My group was exceptionally surprised at the portions that were served at each place. We had assumed it would be a tasting at each one. But we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we were actually served. We had three sit down meals: Italian, Indian and Carribean. We even ended the tour with dessert from a French bakery. Each one could have been a stand alone meal. It's almost too much food. The size of the group was perfect, about 15. The entire tour was just slightly over 3 hours. It is definitely the right amount of walking and stopping to take in the sights. We even got to relax a bit while walking through Washington Square Park. It was a great experience. I will definitely do another of these walking/food tours. It was well worth the price.

Great value. The tour guide (Raheem?) was excellent, not just explaining the food but loads of history on the tour. Thoroughly enjoyable. We've done 2 and will do more!
