Passionate New Yorker shares her knowledge & love
Mon, Jul 21  2:00 PM Skopnitsky Unspecified 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Cindy will whirl you through Chelsea Market in typical NY style. She is a wealth of knowledge and keeps the group moving to maximize your experience. Plan to stay an hour or so after the tour because she doesn't allow for shopping time -- which is good!

Informative - GreatWay To Discover New Area of NYC
Mon, Jul 21  2:00 PM juliebw Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This tour offers great insights into the Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District area - allowing you to visit shops and learn about the history of the area. Without a guide, you'd never understand what you're seeing or why you're tasting what you're tasting. Learning about the revitalization of this area was interesting - what they've transformed the area into in just 10 short years is remarkable! Definitely worth the visit.

Awesome tour!

The tour was absolutely wonderful. Our guide, Ted , was very knowledgable and extremely personable. He not only gave us info on the establishments but also on the cultural aspects of Greenwich Villlage. The food was delicious and diverse. My husband, my 12 year old daughter, and I loved the tour and would definitely do another one again with Foods of NY.

Enjoyed the food, not the tour guide
Sun, Jul 20  11:00 AM Roberta116 Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
While the food was very good, our tour guide Joanna was not. We were continually being told where to stand, to move in, move back, stand on the street, stand off the street, against the wall, not too close to the wall, on the sidewalk, off the sidewalk. More time was spent on where we should stand at each spot than explaining the great Greenwich area. Joanna was very rude and her tour not much fun and her lines, very canned. I had taken the same tour a few years ago with a different guide and had a completely different experience, so good that I chose to bring back a group of 10. This tour fell below our expectations.

Fun, interesting and Delicious!
Sun, Jul 20  10:45 AM Vchappach Male 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We did the NOLITA/SOHO tour with our guide Anne. The tour was great! Very interesting NYC history of the neighborhood around the tour. We check out a bunch of very cool restaurants for small bites of delicious food. Our guide pointed out various buildings where bits of NY history took place or where movies we filmed, where famous people lived, ect. We went to a lot of places that I probably would not have noticed if I just walked by. We also stopped at a barber shop that practiced traditional men's shaving and cutting techniques. I actually went back to the shop for a shave later that day. I highly recommend this tour!

Great way to spend a day
Sat, Jul 19  2:00 PM Love2Eat Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Really enjoyed the tour, leader was well-informed and enthusiastic. It was very crowded, I would have preferred a better time, seems most tours ran two ish on weekends...probably the only thing I didn't like. I was full from all the tastings, very full, my husband was ready to go and eat dinner after we got home (two hours after end of tour). He is not a huge guy, maybe 10-15 pounds overweight, but it was not enough for him. If you are going solely for food, you can probably just buy a few things from lthe shops for less money, but then you won't have the guide telling you all the little details of things. The day was fun and interesting and informative....and yummy. My group of four loved it. I will be doing other tours in the future.

Great tour with a wonderful and enthusiastic guide
Sat, Jul 19  1:00 PM couryfamily Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This tour was very informative and interesting and enjoyable. The tour guide was very well educated on New York and had many stories to tell us about the history of The Village. She was very funny and kept our interest during the entire 3 hours. The food was great! There was a good balance between walking and sitting as well as the distance between the stops. Never knew so much about New York. I would highly recommend it and we plan to do another tour next time we are in the city.

Much more than we expected!!
Sat, Jul 19  12:30 PM Cecelia59 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our tour guide, Susan, was punctual, efficient and personally knowledgeable about the area of our tour. She gave us a sense of the area that we would never get on our own. Susan encouraged questions and spent time with each group of guests to get to know them during the course of the tour. The samplings of food were substantial. The tour far surpassed our expectations in the quantity of food we received and the quality was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour to our friends and family and look forward to the other tour offerings.

Fun Great Culture Tour
Sat, Jul 19  11:15 AM eeinsohn Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I heard about the culture tours a few years ago from some friends who were visiting NYC and raved about it. A very good friend who lives in Dallas has maintained an apartment in NY and asked me to come to NYC. I told her about the tour and we both totally enjoyed it. Burt was an excellent guide. His enthusiasm and sharing of interesting information and facts made it evident that he loves what he does! The next time I get to NYC, I will most definitely select another tour.
