Interesting blend of history of the area and great food tastings of the different ethic groups who are living here. Our guide was knowlegeable, friendly and made accomodations for the different walking speeds of the group. A great way to be introduced to a neighborhood in NYC!

A friend, My sister & I were amazed !

We have discovered tastes that all of us liked; at the same time, we were discovering this part of the town.

The day after we were back at Greenwich village for another taste :)

We have appreciated our guide Susanna and,

Ooh Susanna, thanks a lot for the surprize on my birthday !

Great tour! Our guide Susan was knowledgable and friendly. We ate lots of delicious food from a large variety of ethnic groups. We will definitely try to do another neighborhood with this company next trip to the city.

Tour guide was fantastic. Food delish. informative narrative about the area's history and culture.

What a great experience on a lousy rainy day!

We were met by Susan with a big smile and kind words, and from there the day flowed smoothly. The food we sampled was delicious and the local history we learned from Susan was very interesting! We were so full that we didn't have dinner that night, just a light snack. I've told everyone I've talked to since that day about what a wonderful experience we had and have even booked a walking food tour for our DC trip in April. Great job, Susan and thank you for the cool tour.

This is my fourth Foods of NY Tour and I was again very happy to have spent my afternoon eating a variety of unique and delicious goodies and learning all about the area from a pro. Susan, our tour guide knew everything there was to know about The Village having lived there most of her life. These tours are great and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Great way to learn about an area

Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking

50th Birthday Celebration
Sat, Mar 22, 14   12:30 PM mlorenz Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
There were 8 of us together from the Northeast area, celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had a wonderful time - our guide Susan was awesome and the other members of our group were really fun. We loved learning details about the Greenwich Village area - and absolutely loved all the food! Every piece of the tour was well thought out, and it flowed so nicely together. We were stuffed at the end !! It was the perfect start to our birthday celebration in NYC!
