Fabulous!

This turned out to be much more than any of us expected. Sephrah was our guide and I would encourage you to ask for her. She has a great sense of humor and was very knowledgable about the historic area on the tour and all the places we visited. The food samplings were a lot of fun. We went back to Rafele's for dinner where a delicious meal was made for us paired with wine. We would definitely consider touring one of the other areas they offer.

Sephra was great. Very knowledgable of the area and great personality. I would do this tour again and definitely recommend this tour to my friends who visit New York.

Best food tour and guide in NYC

I can't not recommend this tour enough! Our guide, BERT, was amazingly organized, funny, and informative. We have taken several tours in NYC, and this has been our most memorable one yet. Bert was so easy to talk to and also walked us through the crowded streets of Greenwich Village in such an organized way - he even stopped traffic for us: "I'll block the cars, you just watch for the bikes," as he said. Bert obviously had a good rapport with the restaurant staff, since they were thrilled to see him and welcomed us every time. I would recommend this tour to ANYONE visiting or living in NYC! In fact, we will probably take it again when we return - as long as we can have Bert as our tour guide!

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour and the guide. The food was delicious and the guide very knowledgeable about the food and the neighborhood. It's a great way to spend a few hours and there was so much food that was the only time we ate that day. Highly recommend!

Wonderful date for long-time New Yorkers

Our tour guide, Bert, was incredible. We have lived in NYC over 10 years, and we learned so much about Greenwich Village and the restaurant industry. Foods of NY has managed to create a comprehensive tour that is fitting for tourists or native New Yorkers. Color me impressed. I cannot recommend this enough to anyone who is searching for the perfect gift or date. We had a wonderful time and were stuffed by the end. We plan to take more Foods of NY tours and can't believe we didn't do this sooner! If you have any doubts, stop thinking and just order the tickets. You won't regret it!
