This was a great tour! I went on the Chelsea Market one a couple of years ago so knew what to expect but was still impressed. The whole tour was realxed but informative. The food was delicious and plentiful and the group was friendly - I was a lone Brit amongst a group of Americans! I now regularly recommend these tours to anyone holidaying in New York. It's a great way to get a different experience of the city.

This is the second time we've been with Rahim and he really knows his stuff. We had two elderly couples with us and he was extremely accomodating.

Our Central Village / SoHo "event" was a definite highlight of our visit to NYC. Big credit goes to Raheem who expertly guided us around Greenwich Village and SoHo. Anyone can take you on a tour of places; It takes a Raheem to make it an experience. We chose this particular tour because of the variety it offered. It didn't disappoint. We enjoyed the samples of Italian, Cuban, and Indian. It was not only delicious but educational as well. Most of all we enjoyed the history and backstories that Raheem shared. I have a whole new appreciation for the Village and SoHo.

We really enjoyed Susan as our tour leader. She provided a wealth of knowledge on the area as well as on the food itself. Her passion for the culture, history and food allowed us to experience it on a unique level. Her attitude was diffidently contagious. Would recommend everyone to learn and enjoy NYC on this level.

Susan was our guide, and she really knows the village. Lots of food on this tour, with two sit down stops, which is nice. The mortadella sandwich was terrific, as was the fresh mozzerella from Joe's Dairy. The other food was average. My wife loved the dessert stop. Always like hearing about architecture and local lore, urban myths. Also did the original village tour last year... liked that one better, but you ate more food on this tour.

A highlight not to be missed

I went on this last month with my sister and niece from Mobile AL and we loved it so much I told my friends we needed to do it again. They had not been and it gave me such a fantastic feel for Greenwich Village I wanted to share the experience. The food was wonderful and a nice eclectic mix. Best of all was Susan V, our guide. She is a New Yorker and was irreplaceable in putting meat on the bones of this tour. She is smart, engaging, welcoming and FUN. I will do this company's food tours every time I visit NYC. Don't miss it. By the way, you get terrific bang for your buck. Thanks, Susan. It was a blast! Cheryl Hutchison
