Great experience!

I would definitely do a food tour again! This was great! Our guide (Raheem) was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! We ate a ton (definitely no need for lunch afterwards)! My only suggestion is that the tour incorporate more walking between stops. The first part of the tour was within one square block and had too many stops in a row. It was too much food to eat! We then walked a bit which helped to digest and we were able to eat in the rest of the tour. Overall, I really enjoyed it! I would love to see more of the city with stops every so often.

Perfect Experience!

Loved this Foods of New York Tour! The perfect amount of food (enough to get full), the perfect opportunity to learn about the history of the neighborhood (thanks Barri) and the perfect date! For two foodies, one historian and one adventurist, it was the perfect experience. Such a great time and such a great experience to "stop and enjoy the roses" and the neighborhood, and the culture, and the food, and everything! I would definitely recommend this tour!

I planned this tour for my young adult daughters, sister and mother and we were not disappointed. The food at every stop was delicious and plentiful! My mom really enjoyed the historical and cultural information about Greenwich village we learned during our tour. It was just the right amount of walking and resting for our group and Susan was a great guide. We returned to some of the places we visited and used the coupons provided to shop! This was my second tour with this company and I will be planning another tour on my next trip to NYC.

We had such a great time with Susan learning about pockets of the Village that we would never have learned about otherwise...and got to taste some great food along the way!

NYC's Best Food Tours

Don't be fooled by the impostors--these guys are the best. I live in NYC and I often take my out-of-town guests on these tours. They NEVER disappoint. My guests always love the authentic, NY experiences that this company provides. I love the fact that the company is always changing things and making the tours better (they never get stale). Great company with great guides (and really delicious food). They appear to be sold out all the time (so I guess others have caught on). I look forward to my next tour!!!!

Great overview of the area

Great tour, heaps of things to try and interesting interludes of history, information and fun insights from Diana who was exceptional. Great way to get to know an area of the city both historically (without any stuffiness) and to identify MUST VISIT places following the tour. Highly recommended

I will probably spell his name wrong, but Rawmon(he is from Brooklyn) was absolutely fantastic! He was funny and knew everything about the neighborhood. If we visit NYC again, we will definitely request him. The food was great also. We really enjoyed it.

Great for foodies
Sun, Jul 26  12:00 PM Cynbee64 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
I took my son as a surprise for his birthday. He is an avid watcher of the food network and a lover of all cuisines, which is why I picked this tour. Can't say enough good about our tour guide Rasheem. He was extremely knowledgable about the food, the culture and interesting facts about the neighborhood. Never was there a dull moment. We tasted foods from American cuisine (grilled cheese outstanding), Indian, coffee house, Italian pasta, pizza, tea house, Mexican and ended with a French macaroon. Rasheem even managed the Mexican eatery to bring out a flan for his birthday and everybody sang. Highly recommended tour. Can't wait to go to my next.
