Yummy & So Interesting

History and food - a fantastic combination! Our guide Rahim had great stories and made each stop memorable - my group could not stop talking about this tour for the rest of the weekend! We definitely want to do all of the other tours. I thought it would just be little tastes at each restaurant, but it was a lot of food! We were all happily full by the end. We had two out of towners and one New Yorker and all of us learned things and found new places we want to go back to.

We are locals and wanted to do something different with our 2 kids (teenagers). Rahim, the tour guide was fantastic! He was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We stopped at some terrific spots and the food was amazing. We truly enjoyed every aspect of the tour and would highly recommend it. At the end of the tour we were very full. My 2 daughters really had a great time as did my husband and I.

Great fun for moms and daughters.

It was a bitterly cold day as we treked through the Central Village/SoHo in search of wonderful bits of food and some cultural history with our guide, Raheem. But the weather didn't detract for one second from the delicious food we tasted. And Raheem did an excellent job of getting us inside as much as possible. Our group of six moms and six teen daughters had a terrific time. Even our more picky eaters became adventurous and declared the food delectable. Raheem was entertaining, full of information and fun facts and did a great job of explaining the foods we were trying -- some for the very first time. We were full to the bursting point after our tour and lamenting about why we'd even bothered to make dinner reservations later that evening. This was my second trip with Foods of New York Tours and I'll be back for more!

A Fabulous Afternoon Stroll

There is no other place that can retain it's charm and individuality through time, changing cultures, and fast paced NYC like Greenwhich Village. Through Susan's eyes, as we strolled through Greenwhich Village, Washington Square Park , and bits of Soho, we explored this enchanting community all the while enticed by the inviting delicacies this delightful neighborhood offers. We were enjoyably saturated by the sights, sounds, and tastes of Greenwhich Village under Susan's entertaining tutelage. As native New Yorkers, whose hearts belong to the Big Apple, this fabulous afternoon went far beyond our expectations.

Wonderful way to spend an afternoon in the Village

Our guide, Susan, was not only knowledgable but also she was fun to be with. We strolled around the Village for about 7 tastings (delicious!!!) and also learned interesting "insider" information about Greenwich Village. I plan to re-book with this company for a food tour of a different NYC neighborhood.

Susan was a terrific guide. Not only was the food great, but Susan introduced The Village to us as only a local could. Thanks for a great day.
