Our tour guide was just wonderful (CarryAnn?), full of great stories and her enthusiasim was contagious. I knew the tour would have some great food tastings but it was much more then that. Thoroughly enjoyable and the food was excellent. We will be doing all of the tours in the near future!

This tour was a wonderful way to explore a part of New York that we may not otherwise have discovered. Our tour guide, Heather, was knowledgeable, interesting and made us all feel most welcome. The tour pace was leisurely and the food experiences were awesome.

We loved this tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. The food was great and we learned a good deal of the history of the area as well. Can't think of a single thing to be improved!

My favorite tourist experience in NYC

I would HIGHLY recommend the Foods of New York walking tour in Greenwich Village. Our tour guide Ed was a local, very informative, and friendly. Not only did we learn about the food culture of Greenwich Village, but we learned about the historical aspect as well. We got to try a lot of different foods and see a wide variety of food shops and restaurants. The food was fabulous, and I was completely full by the end. This was an unforgettable experience!

We got to see and hear about some fabulous little restaurants that otherwise would be impossibly hard to find for international visitors. The tour also provided a brief historical perspective of the area and architecture, which was unexpected but welcome.

very enjoyable, educational tour of Greenwich

It's a great way to learn about a section of the city and true insights for non- New Yorkers. The tour buses are nothing compared to what this offers - more details of the area with the shopping and the food. We had a great tour guide that spoke from the heart and was a true NY. Very easy pace so if you want to purchase items from the shops, the timing is relaxed. The shop owners enjoyed the group and eagerly served great samples and suggestions.

AMAZING DAY

I've lived in NYC for eight years and this is the second time I've gone on this tour. The first was with a best friend and this time was with my boyfriend. NYC dwellers can appreciate this tour just as much if not more than tourists becuase we can head the advice of our guides and go back to the restaurants we visited. It's the perfect mix of history and culinary indulgence. Being italian (and my boyfriend not) I got to share with him a piece of my culture as well. I plan on giving a gift certificate to my family and friends for the holidays. On another note, our tour guide Mike was fantastic. He is a true veteren of the village and his frequent familiarity with the patrons and dwellers of the neigborhood added to the experience. I felt as if he really new the village and had not just read a guide provided by the organization. Please, please create a food tour for other neighborhoods in NY. Such a treat!

5 stars thumbs up for food tour

My husband and I took day trip to NY for our anniversary. I wasn't sure what to do that we both would enjoy. He doesn't like plays or shopping both of which normally is the reason I go to NY. I googled non touristy things to do in NY and this came up first. He is a big music fan so I thought we would both enjoy this tour. Cindy our tour guide was the best. She seemed to know everyone in the neighborhood and she made the experience so much fun. All the food was delicious and I have already recommended this tour to many of my friends.

Not a good tour
Fri, May 10, 13   11:00 AM watersoul Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is the 3rd food tour that I've done with this company. The first two - NoLitaNOHO and Central Village/SOHO were excellent; that's why I decided to try a third one. Unfortunately, the Greenwich Village tour was a big disappointment. The tour guide prattled on and on about nothing, and most of the time we couldn't hear her because she would stand in the middle of our group with her back to half of us. The tour ran way over the scheduled 3 hours and a couple of people had to leave the tour before it was over to get to other activities. As for the food: some good (Joe's Pizza, mac & cheese at Home Restaurant), some mediocre (Rafele's, Murray's cheese: I've had some great cheeses at Murray's, but felt that the 3 selections we were given were pretty blah). I still highly recommend the other tours; just stay away from this one.
