Sample tasty treats from ethnic, old-school eateries in two distinct areas - one colorful and exciting, the other surprisingly quaint.

Great neighborhood exploration of tastes

Loved the personal touch and history of the neighborhood. NYC can be overwhelming but to take it to this level gives it a richness that can be missed. Loved the food and flavors, wow were we full. Susan felt like a friend and gave my sister Maria and Maria from MN a wonderful impromptu Birthday treat at the Cuban rest. A lovely flan decorated with a birthday wish. The group size was just right for our tour we were able to make new friends. My only recommendation would be to add a little more time to the sit down locals, in order to socialize more with fellow tourist. We love to make new friends. Wonderful experience

Since my friend and I have taken this tour before and loved it, we decided to do it again. This time, I brought my husband and she invited her boyfriend. Everyone truly enjoyed the tour and our guide, Susan, was great. Highly recommend this tour - the eateries are fantastic together with the history and culture. Two thumbs up!!!

Fantastic food tour thru the Central Village/SoHo District. Hard to pick a favorite of the food offerings. Every sampling was excellent. Our guide, Barri, was wealth of knowledge about the area.

Fabulous food/cultural tour!

What a perfect afternoon we had on our food/cultural tour of the central Village and SoHo! It was everything we'd hoped for and MORE. We learned so much, loved the food, and totally felt like we were seeing the real NYC. Our tourguide, Barri, was excellent - full of info and with a great New York personality! Throughout the tour, and certainly afterwards, my 5 friends and I couldn't quit raving about the tour. We'll all definitely take more tours when we return to New York.

The tour was everything I expected and more! We enjoyed the food, history, originality of the area even in the rain. Rahim was delightful, knowledgable and made us feel like a member of his family. The food stops were superb. Looking forward to another tour with your group.

Fantastic food and walking tour!

I've been on several food tours and this was among the best I've been on. The tour guide, Raheem, was animated, fun and knowledgeable... and an experienced foodie as well! The tastings were all great and they accommodated my dietary issues. I usually go on these "with the girls" but I took my husband this weekend and he loved it too!

We really enjoyed our tour and will definitely book another one the next time we visit our daughter in NYC. Our guide was funny and very well informed. The food selection was varied and we had plenty to eat.
