Entertaining, informative & relaxing

Our guide, Curt Upton, was so warm and inviting. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the Greenwich Village area, he shared that knowledge with our group in a way that was entertaining, informative and relaxing. My group was astonished at the wide variety of foods and the "behind the scene" shop areas that we were privy to. We felt as if we had finally seen the "real" NY. I highly recommend the "Food and Cultural" tour (in any area) as a way to get to know the city, beyond the usual tourist attractions. The tour is definitely worth the time and money.

An Excellent Activity

This was a great thing to do in NYC. Our guide was excellent--very knowledgeable and personable. We went to various restaurants and a couple of shops. The food we had was delicious. The tour was 3 hours, and the pace was just right. I was pleased with the information the guide gave about the area (history and miscellaneous info). We were introduced to restaurants and shops we might otherwise have passed by. I highly recommend this tour (Greenwich Village/SoHo).

Fabulous experience!

My husband and I extended our stay specifically to go on this tour. This is wonderful way to see parts of the city that a tourist would be hard pressed to find on their own. Annie was a delightful guide with tremendous knowledge of the area . The food was wonderful and we will plan to take a different food tour the next time we visit New York. We will highly recommend these tours to our friends.

Anny our guide loves what she does and it shows.

We did the Chelsea and Greenwich tours before, and liked this one even better. Anny our guide loves what she does and it shows. She was fun, knowledgable, and shared many stories about the neighborhood and it's colorful history. We went into these little store fronts, which many times opened into these amazing spaces, I think Anny called the style Industrial-Chic, very cool indeed. Then there is the food! We started at Little Cupcake Bake Shop and had a great mini blackout cupcake. Then to Emporio where we watched them make our delicious pizza. Next Tartinery Nolita served French tartines and wine. Mexican Corn Esquites at Tacombi was fun. The Smile had Amy's bread with creamy homemade ricotta. We ended our tour with wonderful chocolate at Bond St. Chocolate. We have a whole new appreciation for this area of the city.

Chelsea Meatpacking food tour w/ Daryl was amazing

We just did the Chelsea Meatpacking food tour with Daryl and it was amazing. He knew everyone's name and never lost anyone in our fairly large group. He was knowledgeable and funny. The market is amazing and the places he took us to were outstanding. He even talked his way into a couple of bonus sample places. Then we walked a portion of the High Line which was awesome, we went back and walked the whole thing after the tour. We ended up in the Meatpacking district which is where the tour ended. We took the Greenwich tour last year and it was very good. We would highly recommend this one.

A nice menu, if a little heavy on cheese & bread
Sun, Sep 23, 07   11:30 AM wellred Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Our tour guide was well-informed in regard to both the eating establishments and historical stops that we visited in the West Village. She also did an excellent job of establishing the context for tasting certain cuisines -- for example, the Italian immigration wave that established itself in the 1880s. And even though we're locals, we learned some nifty new places to eat and fascinating data about famous and not-so-famous people, places and things. Just be prepared that the tasting menu is heavy on flour and dairy, scarce on protein, and doesn't follow a soup-to-nuts pattern. In one stretch, we went from cheese balls to chocolate chip cookies to pizza to bread, cheese, olives and soppresata (the only meat) to cannoli dessert pastries. All in all, I'd give this a pretty high recommendation, particularly for laid-back tourists that are age 50-plus. Our friend from Seattle was the reason we took this tour and as a school cook and first-time visitor to NYC, she loved it.

Some highlights/some disappointments
Sun, Jul 19, 09   11:00 AM wellness Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I enjoyed the tour but found that the guide focused too much on the restaurants/shops and how much they cost etc. - it almost seemed that they were more concerned with future business for the participating companies than the current tour. I would have skipped a few of the stops (e.g. 2nd pizza) - focus on a few with an opportunity to sit down and enjoy the experience rather than rush through them all. I really appreciated the opportunity to hear about the history, iconic buildings and characteristics of the neighbourhood.

Yummy and Fun!!!

Our tour guide, Kurt from Canada, was great! Kurt was informative and very entertaining. I went with a group of friends from "northwest" New Jersey. We all had a very good time. The food was delicious and I certainly did not need lunch afterwards. I would highly recommend this tours to friends and family. Actually, I would go back again to do this tour or another. If possible, I would request to be on a tour with Kurt as the tour guide.

A must do.

This was my second time doing the Chelsea Market Foods of NY tour and it was just as great as the first time I did the tour. Daryl, the guide, was phenomenal. The food was fabulous. Chelsea Market has great food and shops. A must do if you have a few hours in NYC. I've done all the Foods of NY tour except the China town tour. They are all fabulous and never disappoint. The time flies by.

A step back in time

Nolita/Noho is a darling area with amazing restaurants making you feel you take a little step back in time. Anny, our guide, was perfect-knowledgeable, interacting with the local business owners, and fun. Come hungry. There's a lot of food upfront. Loved the cultural/historical part of the tour as well. Foods of NY once again did not disappoint. I'll be recommending this tour over and over.

Never disappointed!
Fri, Jun 5, 09   11:30 AM WELCOMERITA Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I have attended 2 other food walking tours and I have never been disappointed. This tour was no exception. We had rainy weather which made walking through the Chelsea Market perfect. Our guide, Curt, was fantabulous. His creative one liners took entertainment to a whole new level. Give this guy a stage. I could have gone another three hours listening to him. The food choices were varied and delicious. I was definitely full afterwards. Can't wait to try another food walking tour in the future. A definite must for any trip to NYC.

Did not disappoint!!!!!!

A group of friend went on the Greenwich Village tour last year and this year we took the Central Village/SoHo tour. It did not disappoint. Rahim, our guide was excellent and was flowing with fun facts of the area with great suggestions about everything from music to food. He made the experience so delightful, I hardly noticed the pouring rain. I can't wait to do another food tour on my next trip to NYC.
