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!

The food was excellent, portions were just the right size and the selection of restaurants/stores was perfect. A great mix of ethnicities: Italian,Mexican,Indian. I highly recommend.

Excellent mix of food and local history tour

Great 3 hour tour with a local greenwich village native - Diana - not only was the tour fantastic (and the tour guide!) but the experience gave us ideas for venues for future meals that we may otherwise have overlooked. We had already done the original greenwich tour and knew the tour would be a high standard but our expectations were more than fulfilled!

Finally got to see NYC at my pace!

New York City is always going at a fast pace. Taxis zip you from one place to another, subways tear underground without seeing a thing, views from crowded buses are limited, at best. Even the double decker tour buses race around on a schedule, not giving you a chance to just stop and admire the architecture and the buildings. And when you get off the merry-go-round to walk around a neighbourhood, you don't know the history of the place or the story of the people. For one small neighbourhood, for one short afternoon, Food Of New York Tours changed that. Our well informed and experienced guide took us around a small part of Greenwich Village, explaining the history of the place, showing us the architecture, reliving the history of the people that lived there. It was how I wanted to see New York: on foot, learning how and when things were built, how the people live here. Oh. And there was food too! Lots of it, all from Mom-and-Pop restaurants. Enough food to last all day. And it was good food! And we visited stores that sold coffee right out canvas bags (the smell was amazing) and tea shops. But at the end of it all, the food is not the point. It's a reason to walk around New York, to learn about the neighbourhood and enjoy its history. Rainer and Alyssa

Diana does a great job. She knows her stuff and lead the tour in a warm and informed manner. The food on the tour was great and there was lots of it. The balance between walking and stopping was perfect. Three hours went by in a whiz and we were never tired. Next time in NYC we will definitely take another tour.

Awesome excellent time
Sun, Jun 15  12:30 PM Cathymcgrath Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We had an excellent time, ate really good food, had an amazing tour guide Raheem, who was enthusiastic, knowledgable, engaging and fun. We found the three hours to go by so quickly, but, when you are having a good time that's what happens. Our next trip to New York, we will book our Foods of New York tour first, then our Broadway shows. We have already recommended the tour to many people, and continue to do so. Thanks for the great afternoon.
