Guide was very entertaining and throughly knowledgable about the Village. The food samples were full size portions and excellent. I would definitely take another tour with this guide and the company.

My wife and I enjoyed the tour primarily because of the excellent guide-Kirt. He was knowledgable entertaining and engaging. The food aspect was fine- not exceptionable.

Really enjoyed the tour. Darrell was insightful, fun and very energetic. Would have liked to do more tastings outside of Chelsea market in the meat packing district, but that would be my only regret.

EXCELLENT - can't wait to do another tour!

This tour of the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District was FANTASTIC! The food we sampled was delicious, and from places we probably never would have found on our own. We had plenty of food - and even came hungry as others recommended. Our tour guide was excellent - he was full of interesting information, was funny, friendly and did a great job. I'm so glad my husband found this tour information online - now I can't wait to do another one in a different area. My husband and I have spent plenty of time in NYC and crossed off all the "Have to do" touristy things, so we're always looking for something new to do - this was a great part of our latest trip in an area of town we had never really visited. I've suggested these tours to several people already and know we'll do a different one the next time we're in The Big Apple! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

my family (husband and 2 kids, ages 12 and 16) have done 2 other of your tours, and this one was terrific. we were pleasantly surprised, and sam did a super job in many ways: he learned each of our names right away (that's a daunting task) he joked around while teaching us historical facts his enthusiasm was contagious he was great with all types of people (my kids, the int'l tourists, and all) he made us feel comfortable and involved in the tour -- rather than being lectured he involved each of us with eye contact and fun questions cant wait til you guys offer more tours of the city -- how bout harlem area? or arthur avenue? or lower east side? or even upper east/west manhattan? we will sign up for every one -- we find it fun, informative, and yummy! you do a great job and thank you again to sam from sam/emily/john/ellen

Great experience !

I got tickets for myself and two friends for a Food Walk during our stay in New York. I'm so happy I did. We all felt that this was the highlight of a wonderful exciting few days. I thought that this would be a fun thing to do. It was so much more. We tasted lovely food, learned so much about the area we visited and Diana made it exciting with her wonderful energy. .In the next week or so, I'm going to arrange to go on a food walk in my own city. I expect that I'll find a friend to come with me.........Thanks for turning me on to Food Walks Diana.

This was my third food tour with Foods of NY, but the first time for my family members. We all had a great time. The guide (Rajim) was fun and very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC. What a great way to learn some history and experience different types of food within a given neighborhood.

The highlight of our weekend trip in NYC
Sat, Mar 27, 10   12:00 PM WESTTEXPHOTO Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Had a fantastic time on the West Greenwich/SOHO tour with Rajim. Went on a different tour several years ago and enjoyed it so much that we signed up for this one. Rajim has such a great personality and was so informative. Wow! And a piece of the best cheesecake - ever! I would highly recommend this tour company for those who are visiting New York and even for those who live there as they will learn a lot of history plus they will get to try some great food. Thanks again!

Best tour we've done in NYC

I loved visiting all of the places I probably wouldn't have seen had we not taken this tour. Aside from the interesting and delicious food - the background info and history behind what we were seeing was fantastic. Our guide, Heather, was an absolute gem. She was a wealth of information and enthusiasm, and made this tour a highlight of our visit.

This was my second time to do the Greenwhich food tour and it was an absolute blast. Sephra was our tour guide and I highly recommend her tour. She was hysterical---and had a great deal of knowledge about the area and local restaurants. She not only gave us a great tour experience but also gave wonderful recommendations for other things to do around the city. We were stuffed after eating the pizza, cannoli, olive oil/bread, egglant parmesan, mac and cheese, chocolate chip cookie, rice balls, salami and cheese. Everything we tasted was delicious. I left the tour with a greater knowledge of what Greenwich has to offer. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a unique, entertaining, educational, and delicious experience in New York City !

A Great Introduction to the Village!
Sun, Jul 30, 06   11:00 AM wessut Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My wife, daughter (17) and son (12) did this tour on a Sunday near the end of our NYC visit. My only regret was we should have done it closer to the begining. We would have certianly dined more in the village and the savings would have more than made up for the cab fare from midtown. We had locals that lived in the village on our tour that couldn't believe all the things they did not know about thier own neighborhood. Bari was a great guide and we learned much about the history, architecture, culture, personalities of the city within the city. You don't really walk that far and considering the city was experincing a massive heat wave, it was very bearable. Bari always had us standing in the shade. I can't imagine a better way to introduce yourself to Greenwich Village. Oh....and the food was fantastic! And you won't need lunch.

It rained during our entire walking tour, but the rain did not take much away from the wonderful experience we had. We are a little familiar with the area, or so we thought .... Our guide Rahim was perfect. He knew so much about the area and talked about it with a lot of knowledge and I would say passion. A great sence of humour, too. Everything we tried was so tasty. There was a lot of variety and EVERYTHING was delicious. We ended up retracking our steps and visiting a couple of places after the tour and sampling their food (wonderful tarts and some more of the amazing sausage, which came back home with us). We have made a note of a few places for our future visits ... You think you know the area and then you go on a tour like this .....

Wonderful introduction to Greenwich

Our guide, Ed, was wonderful. He is very knowledgeble about the area. We enjoyed his insight and personal stories. The food during the tour is varied and delicious, and we thought there was plenty of it for a tasting tour. Walking around the area with Ed left us wanting to return.
