Both my husband and myself thoroughly loved the tour and it was definitely the highlight of everything we done on our trip. Our tour guide was funny, informative and entertaining. The food was fresh and delicious, while it was touted as a lunch, we were too full for our dinner. We will definitely do another tour the next time we go back and have already told our friends who just booked it for this week.

Tour très interessant, à faire de préférence en début de séjour à New York pour découvrir de nombreux petits restos de quartier et y retourner par la suite. Très bonne nourriture et en grande quantité, j'ai eu du mal à tout terminer ! A refaire, dans un quartier différent pour d'autres découvertes .

I gave this Tour as a wedding gift since the couple were going to honeymoon in NY. A few minutes after the tour the happy couple texted me to tell me that it had been the highlight of their trip and were sad it had ended. They said the tour guide was very nice and upbeat and that he was very knowledgeable and fun. My couple couldnt have been happier with this gift and the pricing was amazing!!!!

The tour of the Village and SOHO was awesome! The food selection was varied and oh so delicious! Our tour guide, Raheem was so knowledgeable of the area, he really made the tour interesting with all of the tidbits of info. He was so into his work and life as a New Yorker, his enthusiasm was contagious! I cannot wait to return to NYC and book my next Foods of NY tour- it was so much more than I expected!

A sunny tour guide & amiable group on a cloudy day

My tour guide was Susan. She was enthusiastic without being over the top, and knowledgeable without being a know it all ( you know the type!). I wandered streets I had only crossed over in the past, and discovered enough stores and restaurants to guarantee a repeat visit. I enjoyed the mortadella & mozzarella sandwich at Caffe Dante, very much, as well as the Indian street food at Masala times. Empanadas and mojitos at Cuba, yum. The chocolate pear tart was a great ending. Susan took us into a couple of shops briefly that weren't on the official tour, so we would have some interesting stores to visit after the end of the tour. The shops we entered were all welcoming to us. I found a lot of places I'd wanted to return to. As far as the group members went, it was a friendly bunch, save for the couple who sat at my table as we waited for the tour to start. They were from another country and although they could speak English perfectly well, they ignored me as they spoke in their native language only, and they didn't try to get to know anyone else. Disappointing, as part of the fun of the tour is meeting other people who share an interest in NYC and food. I had a great time, and look forward to my next tour!

Food, Food and Food!

The tour was so much fun. I have been to the Village many times but saw it from a different perspective while on the tour. The tour guide was knowledgable and fun and the food was great! When I read the instructions that said you didnt need to have lunch after the tour, I really didnt think that was going to be true. it certainly was true. There was alot of different types of food that I normally would not have tried and I loved it all! My favorite stop was probably the cuban restaurant and the bakery.

This was our 4th Foods of New York Tour & we absolutely LOVED it! Raheem was a very knowlegable and entertaining guide & he really made our 5 year old feel special. Highly recommended for both the culinary & cultural aspects!

We received the walking tour as a gift for my birthday. I was anxious about committing three hours to an unplanned tour when we only had four days in New York. Within ten minutes I felt ridiculously silly for having such a petty angst. This is the best way to see a city. In the hands of a local self confessed foodie. Easily the best thing we did in New York. Thank you Rahim.
