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

Great Food, Great Culture, Great Value!

This tour was excellent! Our guide, Susan, was friendly and knowledgable, and took us through lots of interesting local landmarks. The choice of eateries on the tour was designed to provide a flavor of the various ethnic offerings in the Village, and each stop was better than the last. I live in New York and come to NYC regularly, and this is my first tour, but certainly not my last! This is a terrific value, and one that will leave you with a better understanding and appreciation of what this great city has to offer.

Susan was an amazing tour guide who was knowledgeable and helpful. This is the second Foods of NY Tour that I have taken and I have not been disappointed. We had so much fun that I plan on taking the other tours and then beginning them all over again!

food and history -- yum!

The NYC food tours are about so much more than food. We learned about the neighborhood, both the history and today. We saw little glimpses of NY that I'd have never found on my own. And the food was excellent, especially on this tour (my husband and I took the original Greenwich tour earlier), and was deliciously multi-ethnic, with a couple of my particular favorites being the Indian street food and the Cuban restaurant. Don't plan a big dinner after this! In fact, do yourself a favor and don't plan dinner at all, so that you can return to your favorite from the tour and experience more of their offerings.

Excellent samplings and information

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The food samplings were delicious and a great variety. Susan was a wealth of information about the area and made the tour interesting and entertaining. She obviously had a personal relationship with many of the vendors which made the experience even better. I will definitely try other tours given by your organization.

10/08/10 Central Village/SoHo Food & Culture Tour

My wife and I took the 'original' tour two years ago and were excited to take another tour this year. We enjoyed the tour tremendously! Susan is a fabulous tour guide... she is very personable and I was impressed that she remember our names during the tour... even as she only just met us... We enjoyed the history and interesting facts about the spots that we visited. The tour helps us to decide where to go when we are in the city... On a side note, we went to 'Palma' for dinner that evening because we were impressed with the restaurant on our last tour... the dinner was excellent and please tell Susan that we had the cauliflower salad and it was fabulous!. We also took some recommendations and bought some pasta at Rafetto's and some coffee at Porto Rico too. We look forward to taking another tour in a future visit to the city. Thank you so much!

A "must do"

This food tour is a "must do" activity... especially if you are new to Manhattan and are still trying to navigate through the maze of streets and restaurants! The restaurant choices were excellent and my tour guide was was helpful, informative.. and fun to listen to! Learning where to go from a Tour Guide who is a seasoned New Yorker - saved me both time and money! I plan to do this again on my next visit!

Rahim Rocks :)

We had a wonderful guide in Rahim for our Soho tour. The food was excellent, especially the empanadas and mojito from Cuba and the bolognese from Monte's. This was our third tour with this company and I highly recommend them to everyone I see. We will come back again for a different tour on our next visit. Thanks again Rahim for a great rainy afternoon.

This is my 2nd tour with Foodtours and loved them both. Last year went with a different tour group and was disappointed. Can't wait to do the Meatpacking /Chelsea tour next year.
