Excellent tour well worth the time and money

This is our third walking food tour and our second with Foods of New York. I recommend them highly. We enjoyed the food as well as the interactive history lesson. It was colder than we had anticipated and you spend most of the time outside so our lack of warm outerwear detracted from our enjoyment somewhat. As always, the tour guide was friendly, knowledgable and organized. Book early because they sell out! Personally I enjoyed the food on the Greenwich Village tour better than this food but it was still worth doing.

We loved the variety offered on this tour. I was so full by the end I could hardly eat more, but I managed. It's a great way to learn about a NYC neighborhood.

Susan was a great tour guide!!

We enjoyed the tour but a little too long - 2 hours would be enough. Susan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were disappointed in some of the food choices. The Cuban restaurant sampling was bland for Cuban food - they should have served the traditional beans, rice and pork or a Cuban sandwich. As for the Italian restaurant, the sampling should have been both the pesto dish and the sauce dish. Also, very disappointed that the bakery, "Once Upon a Tart," had very little pastries left to purchase. We wanted to purchase scones and muffins. I guess you need to get there first thing in the morning! The tour did show us places that we would visit again on our next trip to NY - coffee and tea shop, Italian store (homemade ravioli), and a few of the eateries. We were not too thrilled about the food samples but did enjoy the history on the tour. We also enjoyed our drinks at Cafe Del Mare (meeting place for the tour) and Linwood the bartender!! Very quaint place - food looked great. We will be back next time for brunch and to see Linwood!!

We had a great afternoon on the food tour. Our guide was fantastic and we loved all the history of neighborhood throughout the day. We found so many new places to try and can't wait to return to New York. I have made recommendations to my friends in New York about what they are missing. You will not be disappointed.

Our tour guide was Susan and she was a book full of knowledge. The restuarants we went to some sit down and some we eat on the street were such a great mix of ethenic foods. We all couldn't stop talking about how wonderful it all was! We actually were so full from all the eating i couldn't believe how much food we actually got at each stop...way more than i've ever gotten in any other city. I look forward to going back and doing another tour with this company!! Five stars!!!

Our tour guide Susan was very informative and easy to talk to.She had great knowledge of the village and surrounding areas.The places we ate at were friendly and delicious.Not one bad thing.We had 2 vegetarians in our group and they had separate foods for them which were delicious also.I would recommend this tour to anyone.
