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

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!

Our tour guide Diana was awesome! Great sense of humor and had some great history to share along the way.

Each restaraunt was outstanding! Loved the fact that we had many opportunities to actually sit down and the food was delicious. They did no skimp, they gave us actual meals and nice size portions ! Well worth the money and then some! I would do this tour again and highly recommend it to any tourist or New Yorker!

This was my fourth tour with foods of NY and it was informative and fun and a great way to sample the food along the way. It's such a pleasure to see the neighborhood throughout the eyes of a native guide and get ideas for a return visit.

We truly enjoyed our Sunday afternoon sampling goodies in the village with Raheem, our fantastic tour guide! It was a perfect combination of tasting interesting food, as well as, learning about the history of the area. He even pointed out to us where fashionista and Vogue editor, Anna Wintour, lives. Very cool! I would highly recommend this tour and Raheem!

Great culinary and historical experience!

We are four girlfriends from high school who have known each other over 46 years. We did the tour as a unique way to celebrate one of our birthdays. My daughter purchased this tour as a Christmas gift for my husband, so I already had rave reviews about it from them. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, so we thoroughly enjoyed learning all of the historic facts about Greenwich Village. There was a very nice variety and ample quantity of food to taste - we really enjoyed it all. An added treat was the gentleman playing classical music on a baby grand piano in Washington Square; we would have liked more time to listen to more of his playing. You definitely get your money's worth, both in quantity and quality. Everyone had a fabulous day and we will be recommending the Foods of NY tours to our friends and family. Thanks for a great experience.

I spend a lot of time in New York but this tour showed me places and eateries that I did not know about. I thought it was fun and interesting. Food was delicious. Our guide was wonderful and knew so much about NYC culture and history.
