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

Yummy, often non-conventional tastings. Introduces you to unique shops and restaurants that you'd never discover on your own. Highly recommended for foodies and non-foodies alike!

Perfect birthday gift for an out-and-about wife
Sat, Aug 16  12:00 PM Bunneh3000 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife hates it when I buy her 'things' most times for holidays because most things she wants are either far too expensive for the both of us or she simply doesn't really 'love' most of the things I buy for her. Thankfully, this gift was quite different. I knew my wife was a 'foodie' that typically loved watching FoodTV and cooking shows and the like. She also LOOOOVES trivia so history and 'culture' is always interesting to her. So when I told her of this walking food tour she was all in. The tour guide was a knowledgable and enthusiastic woman that had lived in the Greenwich Village area for many years. She knew and genuinely loved the area and its history so the stories and explanations that she spoke of always caught your interest even if you weren't particularly interested in history to begin with. From references to recent and older movies, musicians, and celebs, all who were on the tour could relate. Then, of course, there was the food. With an excellent selection for both meat eater and vegetarian, every where that we went BEGGED for my wife and I to return to at some point later. We'll definitely hold on the pamphlet and be sure to tell the restaurants that Foods of NY Tours sent us!

great tour with plenty to eat

We did the food tour as a group of two couples. Our guide, Barri, was awesome. She not only guided our tour to the scheduled stops for different food samples, but was able to give us some very interesting history about the area and also some of the famous people who live, or used to live in the area. This is information about the area which you would not otherwise obtain without such an informed guide. The food stops were great, you will not need to eat before or after the tour, the samples are generous and filling. All of the food stops had delicious food and friendly employees. Again, you will get plenty to eat during the tour!! All members of my group had a great time and learned lots about the area that we toured. We have done tours in other cities that were also very good and this one will also be highly recommended.

This was a great value for the money, and the guide had wonderful insights about the neighborhood -- beyond food -- that added a lot to the experience. I would highly recommend this to friends and family.

A foodie couple from Dallas
Fri, Jul 25  12:00 PM Skaneman Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I toured with Barri on a hot Friday afternoon. Barri was enthusiastic, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the history and current make up of Greenwich Village. The food samples were delicious, varied, and quite substantial. Most in our group were stuffed by the end of the tour. Barri kept us supplied with water during the heat of the day as we learned about the architecture and history of the area in addition to the seven food and drink stops. The tour was the perfect lenghth. Will definitely take this tour again!

Informative culinary delight

Our group of 12 spent just over 3 hours walking and tasting. The guide was well informed, articulate and shared her passion for the region and its food. There was plenty to eat. Very glad we did the tour and in all likelihood will do another.
