Food tour good but canned
Tue, Oct 14  11:00 AM lizcutler Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
While our tour guide knew a lot about the topics and was lively, I felt as if we were on an assembly line. His presentation, down to the jokes, was completely canned, almost memorized. Maybe that's inevitable. He worked very hard to get to know the names of the people on the tour, which was good, but the way he used those was hokey. I did like the architectural information about the neighborhood. The food, while delicious in quality and generous in quantity, was pretty much some form of cheese and grain in every place. I would have liked to understand more deeply the food history of the area. We enjoyed ourselves, but I wouldn't go back.

Great fun and large variety of food

I highly recommend this tour. Bert our guide was so fun and informative. We were served a large variety of food. The portion sizes were generous. We did not go away hungry. We actually sat down in three of the restaurants, that offered the quaint historical feel of NY. Thank you so much Zerve, Foods of NY and especially Bert our guide. Beth OK

Sephra is awesome
Sat, Oct 11  11:00 AM shughes58 Female Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
This is our third Foods of NY tour - Chelsea, Nolita, and this. All 3 were wonderful tours, good food, good guides, all rated 5s, but Sephra is absolutely wonderful. (She tells us she always does the 11am tour on her working days.) With her fabulous personality and humor we hardly noticed it was a yucky rainy day. She is hysterical. Just enough history and talk about the neighborhood, lots of light-hearted humor, mixed with 6 small bites (e.g. a risotto ball bigger than a golf ball; slice of pizza) + 2 desserts. The best way to do lunch in NYC!

Bert was very knowledgeable, having lived in Chinatown for several yrs. He was enthusiastic and seemed to have good rapport with the shop owners. Food was very good and mire than enough.

I had a group of friends who went on this food tour and everyone had a great time, very informative and delicious! We loved each food establishment and even requested vegetarian which was deliciously accommodated! I look at reviews before I book any trip and with that in mind, I highly recommend this tour!

It was fantastic !! Our tour guide was the best - local, informed, funny and we felt really lucky to have her ... We had a diverse tour group and she interacted with all of us. The restaurants and stops along the way were varied, the food was great and the area history " lessons"made for a fabulous experience. I would recommend this to anyone coming to NYC. A great representation of a wonderful area and culture .

Heart of the Village Tour -- LOVED IT1
Sun, Sep 14  12:00 PM AnnabelN Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
A voucher for 2 to Heart of the Village Tour was a Christmas gift. I booked it for September (to coincide with my birthday). It was one of the best gifts I ever received. The tour was a full 3 hours -- very organized, the tour guide was very knowledgeable, the sites interesting and the food plentiful and delicious. Would definitely recommend it and look forward to going on another tour. Also, our group was small - 8 people in all - 6 from out of the USA and the two of us -- from New Jersey!!!!
