Take the tour only if you enjoy food tasting

Overall, I had a good time on the Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour and the tour guide was very comical. I really enjoyed tasting the various foods on the tour (some food tasting stops were better than others though) and the tour did a great job of accomodating a vegetarian diet. If you enjoy food tasting and plan on revisiting the Greenwich Village area during your trip, then this is a really good tour to take because the tour guide gives you restaurant recommendations. However, if you are taking the tour to learn about the culture/history of Greenwich Village, then I would recommend taking another tour because I didn't learn very much about the area. Although this is a 3 hour tour, a lot of the time is spent waiting for the tour guide to go into the restaurant and bring out the food to the group. Also, I was hoping to explore more of the Greenwich Village area, but you basically stay on the same street during the tour. I think this tour is overpriced for what it is.

A Great Food Tour Experience

Our guide, Kurt, met us right on time at the Chelsea Market--he made a real effort to remember and use all of our first names--and was amazingly successful. He really knew the area and told us many interesting things about it. He was very knowledgeable about all the establishments we visited (and there were quite a few), and made sure we all were enjoying ourselves, learning about the Market and meat packing district, and along the way eating lots of delicious food. When we met, it was raining and he said how lucky we were to have chosen this tour as the Market part was all inside--but he promised that by the time we came to the meat packing part, during which we walked outside, the sun would be shining and it would be a beautiful day--and he was right! We also visited several restaurants in the area which was great because we plan to visit Chelsea when next we're in NYC and now we know some good places to eat. Altogether a delightful day. We can't recommend the tour highly enough.

This tour was lots of fun and great value for money. We discovered some great places that we would not have found on our own. Thanks to all involved.

A Movable Feast!

This was the second tour we took with Foods of NY, the first being the original Greenwich Village tour a few years ago. We enjoyed that one so much, we decided to go back for a "second helping," this time bringing an out-of-town guest. We all had a great time. Our guide, Susan, was friendly, informative and thoroughly professional. The tour runs like a Swiss watch, so precise that you have to stop and think about how much planning and organizing must go into it, to have each and every restaurant or shop prepared to greet and serve the group as soon as we arrive. We are lifelong New Yorkers and my husband went to school at NYU, so we are no strangers to Greenwich Village, but New York is definitely a "work in progress" that can and should be visited with frequency. The food was varied, interesting, and of uniformly good quality. The Greenwich Village sights, from Washington Square Park to SoHo a real slice of New York. We even got to witness the finales of two different weddings - a little "extra" no one expected! There are a lot of walking tours out there, but only one with FOOD; no contest!

We have heard about Greenwich Village since the 1960's but have not kept up with the changes that have occurred over the years. It is an area filled with history unique to the Village. We enjoyed the tasting experiences and the tour so much. This was a highlight of our NYC visit. Can't wait to try one of the other food tasting and culture tours offered in NYC. .

The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event

I do a similar type of educational session & tasting with beer as part of my job. I told my son that the fact that our host spoke for 2 1/2 hours and was constantly informing us with pertinent in interesting information was way above the curve on presentations like this. Highly recommend

Our tour was reccommended to us by friends who also took this tour. It surpassed our expectations. Our guide, Rajim was great. He was very knowledgeable about the food, and the history of the Village. Such a personalbe guide. The food choices were very tasty. Although it was a warm day, we enjoyed ourselves. We highly reccommend this tour.

Even as a native New Yorker I found it informative. perhaps a little more local history. The guide,Cindy,was lively and entertaining. I would skip Rocco,s but perhaps that is just personal taste.

If you are a foodie, this tour is for you! The guide was knowledgeable about the area, the vendors, the architecture and the food. It was a fun way to see a part of the city and to enjoy great food. I had no idea we would be trying so much food, there is a lot to eat. I will recommend this tour to friends and family and I plan on taking the tour again sometime. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Diana was outstanding. We had a great time and she kept the group moving well. This is the second super tour we've gone on, the first was with Cindy. We're looking forward to more.

I learned so much more than I would have on my own. The tour guide was fabulous, and the food we sampled was really the best of the best.

I've taken other food tours and loved them. I wasn't as impressed with this one. There was less food tasting on this tour and a lot more history and walking to places that were not food orientated. I did leave with a good understanding of the area.
