Fantastic Food and Culture Tour

We took the Greenwich Village/Soho Food Tour with guide Susan. She was very informative about the neighborhood and shared a lot of insights. The food venues that we visited were very diverse; many were places we would have passed by without giving them a second glance but were so glad to have found on this tour. We would definitely take another tour with Foods of NY

Excellent - We wish that we had done the tour earlier in our visit so that we could return to the places we visited. Susan was wonderful - informative, solicitous and fun. Would recommend highly. Will be entering the photo contest.

Food For Enough for An Army

Our tour guide Susan knew her neighborhood and she was eloquent with great descriptions. The food was outstanding, though I had wished there wasn't so much fried foods. One would have been plenty. I love food but a taste would have been sufficient in some of the cases. Some of the "tastes" were enough for one meal and knowing we had 3 hours of food, that was way too much to serve us each time. A quarter of the sandwich from Cafe Dante, a quarter of the breakfast wrap from Marsala, and way less fried. I would recommend this tour and look forward to taking others. Now that I have completed one, I know to just taste and probably waste the rest at each stop.

Fantastic afternoon!

Tasty and plentiful food, along with an interesting history of the area. Tour guide Rahim was upbeat, fun, and well-informed. Enjoyed all the stops on the tour and, although the day was miserably hot, we found shady stops. Perfect way to get an up close and personal tour of a vibrant neighborhood.

We would highly recommend this tour! The guide was informative, fun, and accommodating. The generous food portions were delicious and culturally diversified. We enjoyed visiting the old and newer establishments. Getting to stroll the neighborhood and hear about its history was such fun. Every part of the tour surpassed our expectations! We would definitely tour again with this company and have already recommended it to friends traveling to NYC.

Rahim was our tour guide on our adventure through The Village and So Ho. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and descriptive about the locations, owners, and foods! We enjoyed all the food but were quite full at the end so the tart was wasted on most of us! Our group was nervous at the prospect of Indian food as we are not very adventurous eaters; the wrap there was fantastic! I would definitely recommend the tour; you won't be disappointed.

A real treat

This experience was amazing. We enjoyed the narrative and history of the area provided by our guide as well as the different flavors we experienced. We sampled (large samples) foods we may never have tried. The variety of the places we sampled were great with tastes for everyone.

We previously did the Chelsea Market tour and loved it. This was equally enjoyable. Good food, informative guide, and pleasant people. Great way to spend a day in NYC.
