Our tour guide was enthusiastic and full of stories and information about the things we were seeing. The tastings were wonderful and at the end of the tour I did not need another thing to eat. It is like eating a multi-course meal. I would highly recommned the tour. This is a culture lesson that is very educational!

Thank you for one of the highlights of our entire NY trip. Four years ago we did the Greenwich tour and knew that we would enjoy this one also. Your company does a fabulous job of organizing, having enthusiastic guides, and presenting interesting facts. Next time we come we will do another tour. For your information we also did another walking tour with another company and it would not hold a candle to yours-difference as" daylight and dark." Thanks again for the BEST that New York has to offer. Pat

This was my 2nd food tour and I found it totally different than the first one I took, the original Greenwich Village Tour, and just as FANTASTIC. The tour is so interesting, filled with amazing history of the area. The food was so DELICIOUS. Our tour guide Daryl, was EXCELLENT, with such knowledge of the area, and a wonderful personality, too. I've lived in NJ and NY forever and have learned so much about the NY area, which I couldn't wait to share with friends. This is a wonderful way to spend the day, with the cost of the tour well worth it!!

My wife and I enjoyed this tour every much. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the food we tasted was great and the portions at some of the tasting were more than we expected. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting NY city. My wife found this area of NY city to be great fun and we would return to on our next visit. This is an area you would not expect to visit but is as much fun or more fun to see than some of the better known site to visit. This is my second of three bookings through "Zerve" two thru the internet and now one over the telephone. The person over the phone was very friendly and helpful.

Awesome Tour

This was our third tour with Food Tours of NY, and it was just as good as the first two but somewhat different. This one didn't seem quite as history-oriented, perhaps because the neighborhood as a destination is much more recent. But the tour was great. The tastings were delicious and much larger than on the other tours (although our tour guide said the food tastings on the other tours were being revamped). Our group was very small so we were able to cover more territory, and I especially enjoyed stepping inside some well-known restaurants such as Morimoto, Spice Market, and Del Posto. Our guide was awesome--knowledgeable, entertaining, and friendly. He was the best guide we've had on any of the tours, and they've all been good. I highly recommend!

Our guide was very knowledgeable, she answered all our questions and we had a lot. She was quick on her feet even though one foot wwas in a walking cast. she took us to terrific places of NY history, places we never knew existed. We loved every part of the tour especially the eating places - a wonderful blend of history and contemporary culture in one afternoon. Before you know it you too will feel like a member of the nieghborhood. This was our second tour with Foods of NY - just terrific. see you on the next one !
