This is one of the most fun activities I have done in the city. Our tour guide, Polly, was very funny, personable, knowledgeable, nice, and fun. I want her to be my best friend. Everywhere we ate was delicious. I'm so happy I have new favorite places to go and new places to shop, too! Totally worth being a tourist for a day!

This was a great time with excellent (and a variety of) food tastings, lots of local history, and our guide, Paulette, was a blast. I highly recommend this tour.

Paulette was amazing. We have done all of your tours and everybody is great, but Paulette I thought went above and beyond

Susan provided a culinary cacophony of cuisine, commentary and coquettishness. A great way to spend a few hours; thanks very much.

Amazing Day!

A group of friends, all from suburban NY met to do the Heart of the Village Tour this weekend. We LOVED it! Our tour guide, Susan was so knowledgeable about the history, architecture, development and of course the food. And she was a lot of fun to be with! We ate our way through Greenwich Village while learning so much that we, as New Yorkers never knew. I highly recommend this tour not only to those coming from out of town, but also to those natives who often overlook the sights, smells and foods of NYC! A big thumbs up to Food Tours of New York for orchestrating such a fun and interesting experience!

Good Food Experience
Fri, May 20  12:00 PM HarveyM Male 70+ Local Individual
The amount of food is definitely enough to be considered a very adequate size lunch, no doubt about it. It was a very interesting food experience, because there were quite a few good foods that I had never experienced before. Overall, some of the food offered were gourmet quality, some were not. We stopped at some interesting sightseeing places (including where Bob Dylan and former New York cop Frank Serpico, of movie fame, lived), but it seemed like the majority of the time was spent involving food, either eating or going to the next food destination.
