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

One of the highlights of a wonderful time in NY

Two of us had taken the Greenwich Village Tour a few years back and based on that experience, we decided to return, this time accompanied by our families--which included seven vegetarians! We could not have been more thrilled with this tour. Our guide, Rahim, was an enthusiastic, entertaining and informative host. His stories brought the history, culture and architecture of the area to life. And, the food was excellent from start to finish. Great variety and as vegetarians, we were very well taken care of. Thanks to Rahim from 'Your Canadians.'

We have been on many New York City bus trips. We decided to try something different and went for the ethnic restaurant tour. All of us loved it; even my picky-eater self. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was great and the tastes were of good size.

Best way to see the real New York. Our guide was awesome. We were really surprised on the amount of food served. A couple days latter we tried one of the restaurants we visited. We would do it again and again.

Despite a windy day in NYC we had a great time! Our tour guide was spectacular and the tour was both fun and informative. My son who is a local New Yorker enjoyed himself and found several new spots to check out. I look forward to taking another tour with "Foods of NY" during our next visit this summer.

Noshing Doesn't Get Better Than This

Even a cold drizzle couldn't keep us from having a fun time noshing our way through the Village. Our incredible guide, Susan, shared the history and trivia of the area as we walked, talked and sampled eclectic foods of the area. We tried Indian, Cuban and Italian fare and ended with a delicious homemade smoked mozzarella with sun dried tomatoes followed by a chocolate and pear tart. Hats off to Susan for making this a memorable day for us!

Full on Carbs...

As stated on the website, tastings were enough to satisfy lunch, however, most of the tastings were very highly carb based. We did enjoy the informative guide, but would have liked to have covered more area.

Great Food Tour by Foods Of NY!

Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We visited a number of restaurants and became much more familiar with the neighborhoods of Greenwich Village and Soho. We would definitely recommend this to others, and we'd like to take another tour in a different part of NYC. The tour exceeded expectations!

This is my third food tour. I have been on the Chelsea Market and Greenwich Village tours. I liked this a lot, but liked the other two better.

Worth every penny . . . One of best NYexperiences!

My husband, 13 yr. old daughter, and I had such a wonderful time with our guide, Susan, and the group. Susan is so knowledgeable, personable, fun, informative and pleasant to be with. The food choices were perfect . . . just the right variety and excellent quality. We tried this on a whim as something different to do and now we can't wait to sign up for more tours of different NYC neighborhoods. We will recommend this experience to all our friends . . . native NYers and visitors. THANK YOU.
