Our tour guide was just fantastic! He made the streets come alive with history and excitement for what took place in this region. The food was wonderful. His description of the food and its preparation were fantastic. Thank you for a great day! I have already been back to several of the establishments and have booked a cooking class at Monty's!

Another great way to see New-York

I would highly recommend that tour . Please do not eat before because there is a lot of great food to taste and you do not want to miss any of it. They take you to places your would never find out on your own unless you are a real local and also the historical info about the area your are visiting makes it very interesting . For sure on my next visit to New-York I will do another tasting tour of a different area. It is a great way to discover another side of the city.

I will highly recommend it to everyone I know.

We did the Greenwich Village tour two years ago and it was everyones favorite part of our trip so decided to do the Greenwich/Soho this trip. It was even better than the first tour. Lots of great food and our tour guide was the best!

We found this tour on the internet, and since we both love food, we thought it would be fun at the least. It was awesome, and an incredible value! We liked it so much that we booked the Chinatown tour WHILE we were on this one!

We loved this tour! Our guide, Susan, was very informative about the neighborhood and restaurants/food. The food samplings were delicious and the walking tour was perfect - not too long or strenuous. We are excited for our next visit to NYC to do another of your tours!

It was a great way to start our first fill day in NYC. My daughter (16) and I are foodies and enjoyed every minute. The guide Berri was very knowledgable. The restaurant choices were great. I would highly recommend it. It is also a great way to get your bearings in the neighborhood!

Great food & a passionate, knowledgeable guide

Both the foodies and non-foodies among us had a great time learning about the neighborhood via its restaurants, bars, and speciality food stores (e.g., cheese shop, pasta shop, coffee roaster). It was a hot day, but felt basically like home (Texas), so it didn't bother us, especially since our guide was good about trying to keep us in the a/c, or at least the shade.
