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

Great guide, very informative and interesting. Many delicious food stops with more than enough food. A must for anyone who wants to know what the best stops are to eat and be entertained in Greenwich Village.

Diana gave us tips and insights and the 3 plus hours zipped by in no time. Our stomachs were full of good and diverse food, and she told us stories and histories of the area that no one but a local could tell. Highly recommend.

We have been to New York many times but this is the first time we did a food tour. It was very enjoyable and we learned a lot about the neighborhood. I would highly recommend the tour.

Our tour guide was Susan( don't know last name). We were a group of 15 people. She was well versed in the history of the locations and restaurants we visited. I did not like the Middle Eastern food tasting site. All the others were great. A bottled water was offered prior to leaving the meeting place. The last 1/2 hr would have been nice to have had the opportunity for a little shopping. Otherwise, I defintiely recommend.

Warm neighbourhood welcome

My second :foods of ny" tour, and every bit as delightful as the first. Staying at a hotel uptown, i now know how important it is to visit the local neighbourhoods in order to fully understand the history of new york, and why the city so rightly celebrates its diversity in food, music, the written word, and beautiful public spaces. Our tour guide was so enthusiastic about the amazing people, the brilliant food from the independent purveyors, and the famous people who once lived in the area. Listiening to his descriptions of life in Greenwich in the 50s and 60s, I could envision the cultural energy that must have existed then. Even today, the area hums with so much life, but without the guided tour you would not be aware of what preceded. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. As someone who loves literature, I could fully understand why Henry James, Edgar Allen Poe, Bob Dylan, ee Cummings, and so many others gravitated to this area that is so saturated with life, and ideas. Thankyou, thankyou Rahim, for an absolutely amazing experience..from a culinary and a historic perspective. We will be back.
