Another brilliant food tour from FoodsofNY Tours

Amazing 3hr walking and sitting tour with about 10 different tastings. Tour includes history, culture, celebs, architecture but most importantly food. This is my 5th tour with this company and they are consistenty brilliant. Guides are all great and each put their own slant and history on tour. Food options are varied running from italian, to indian, to lebanese, to cuban, to modern american. So much food you will feel sick by the end. Can't reccomend enough.

unlike other food tours

After going on two other NYC food tours and one in Boston I was very disappointed in this one. It was so hot yet we were constantly stopped in the hot sun for 3 hrs and given too much history of the area. If I wanted that much history/info on the area I would have signed up and paid for a different type tour. It was so awkward always eating outside on the the street, not getting to sit down and rest. Our guide kept getting us to "line" up in two lines and squeeze together in the heat. Several times we could have at least stopped in the shade instead. This tour was just not what I wanted or expected. We only found one Italian place we would have wanted to return to. Even the one drink we had was chocolate milk and grape juice mixed together! Does this sound appealing? We did not even get to look inside most of the food places. At least cut the group down or send 5 at a time inside. No, I would not recommend this tour.

The Soho tour on Friday Aug. 31, was perfect! Our tour guide Raheem, was informative, funny, and had an energy that couldn't be beat. We loved it! The food choices were excellent. The pace between walking and eating, were planned out perfectly. We learned alot about a very interesting section of NYC. We would like to thank Raheem for the surprise birthday flan, with candle, at the Cuban restaurant. We look forward to the next tour!!!

Susan was a great tour guide.

Susan was very informative.This was my 2nd Greenwich Village tour. The first was the original in 2009. I enjoyed both of them. I would highly recommend these tours.

I would like the names of the restaurants we sampled from the tour we took on Monday.

Our guide Susan was phenomenal. Friendly, approachable, organised and very knowledgeable about everything we saw and ate. The food and drink tastings were delicious and the tour was fascinating. The tour is an excellent way to figure out what all the fuss is about with Greenidge Village and I suppose, if you're already familiar it is a great way to greater appreciate it. Susan's historical commentary was interesting and not too much for those of us who aren't "touristy". I loved it so much I'll probably take all my guests from out of town.

Just go!

This was awesome. It was probably the best part of our trip. The food was awesome but it also provided a lot of history and information about the area that was really interesting as well. I'll definitely take another tour of a different area the next time I'm in the city.

Great Experience!

My mother, sister and I take a girl's trip to NY every August. We've been going or six years, so have done the traditional touristy things multiple times and needed another option... This was fantastic! Affordable, fun, able to see a diffeeent area of NY and our guide was incredible! Loved every minute of it!
