A must while in New York
Sun, Apr 10, 11   11:00 AM nole00destin Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
I recently took the GV food tour and had such a great tour. The group had 16 people so it was a perfect size to be able to hear our guide and be involved. The tour was more than just a food tour. We learned about the community, how the restaurants came about, what makes them unique...our tour guide knew so much it was incredible! We had a total of 9 tastings, I admit I was a bit skeptical with our first tasting being pizza, but wow it was incredible! The food at all 9 stops was incredible and by the tour end I was stuffed! A lot of the people on our tour had done a tour the day before and I will definitely do the Chelsea/meatpacking tour next time. I was also a solo traveler but felt completely comfortable with everyone and never left out....whatcan I say food brings ppl together. I give the tour 5 stars and highly recommend it!

Highlight of my stay in New Yorkl!

This tour was excellent. The guide was organised, witty and well informed. The pace of the tour was just right. The 3 hour duration made it a pleasant and unhurried experience and the guide made a concious effort to include everyone in the commentary. All of the food sampled was delicious. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in good food and the history of the area. I went on the tour on my own but was made to feel part of the overall group very quickly. I would also say the tour was excellent value given the number of stops we made and the variety of food we sampled. It was easily the highlight of my 5 day stay in New York

Food Tours does it once again

Great guides with lots of interesting historical and cultural information. The foods offered are very tasty and representative of high quality Chinese foods unlike what most of us are accustomed to. Being in this part of Manhattan feels like being in Asia. You'll visit extremely interesting produce,tea,herbal-type shops with lots of' samples along the way. This experience will become a highlight of your Manhattan visit.

Food Tour Delight

The food tour was in a word: awesome. The guide (Curt) was knowledgable, enthusiastic, personable, and fun. You can tell he loves his job! The many places we visited were all fabulous. The variety of food was tremendous, as well as delicious. The guides knowledge of not only the food, but the neighbourhood was really appreciated. He told many interesting stories concerning the history and the people of the Village, that really expanded the tour. My suggestion to all visitors is to go on a food tour in every city they vacation in. We will certainly do another food tour on our next trip to NYC.

Informing and entertaining

The tour guide provided us the right amount of information, with a good balance among food, pop culture and History. Tastings left me more than satisfied in terms of both quantity and quality. I came back by myself the next day to the same area and felt as if I had lived there for a few weeks.

Tour was informative, fun and full of food. The tour guide, Curt, was fab. Would suggest take the tour as early as possible in your trip as you'll want to go back and revisit the food establishments! This tour is highly recommended!

Excellent tour guide , lots of history and passion for new York , not so enthusiastically received by business proprietors . Learnt a lot about New York , little about food . Must be a very difficult one to please all . Most of the food stuff you get from the food channel or shows . Over all worthwhile .

An excellent way to spend three hours in NY

A great experience. Learned a lot of history and certainly enjoyed all the food most especially the Manhattan clam chowder at The Lobster Place. We started off with a big cupcake and we both feel that the smaller one would be better.

An excellent complement to any visit to NY

I joined up on this tour on a recommendation from a colleague and found this tour to be one of the highlights of my first trip to NY. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided information not just for the local food, but for the neighbourhood as well. The guide's enthusiasm for the tour and great humour made for a very pleasant experience. I will definitely be recommending this tour to others.

Enjoyable, value for money, and worth recommending
Thu, Feb 17, 11   11:00 AM denisrankin Male 60-69 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
My wife and I joined the group of c.16 on a Thursday morning. The tour guide (Carrie Anne) was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and likeable. We enjoyed 8 tastings in a good variety of establishments spread around the three or four blocks in the neighbourhood, and had no need of lunch at the end of it! We both felt the tour had provided us with a real taste of the area, not just in food but also in the history and make up of the locality. This was excellent value for the money spent, and well worth recommending to others.
