Great food; wonderfully diverse

Great food; diverse selection; terrific and knowledgeable guide. We took friends from the UK and had a very memorable day. We highly recommend the tour. We can't wait to do the Chinatown tour. We have done Greenwich Village with the focus on Italian foods in the past and thorooughly enjoyed it. But what we especially liked about the Central Greenwich Village/Soho tour was that we had Italian, Indian, and Jamaican, all within a short walk and all wonderful.

Susan was knowledgeable, personable and a good communicator. The tour was tasty, tasteful and terrific. We experienced a nice variety of food selections and restaurants. Would definitely recommend. Kudos to you Susan for handling the "irritated New Yorker dog owner so tactfully"!

this tour had a lot more food than i think people were expecting, but it was all great. sometimes i got a little bored when the tour guide talked too much about architecture, i'd love more fun facts about the food!

Great food. Great group of people. Our tour guide, Susan was well informed and fun. Gave us a great overview as well as history and a few funny stories. Will do another tour with you.

disappointed

I've been a few of these tours and have enjoyed them immensely. This last tour I was extremely disappointed in. The restaurants chosen we're OK but nothing spectacular. Also the tour guide seemed to be disinterested and at sometimes downright rude. At one point a friend of mine on the tour wanted to have two of the spinach and cheese and no chicken and the tour guide got extremely upset and took her plate out from under her in front of the whole entire group. She made a big deal out of really nothing as there was enough food for everyone to have more than one or two pieces. my group was stunned by the guides actions and almost left the tour at that moment. This particular guide is a poor representative of foodsofny, in fact as we were walking many of the locals were telling us she was a liar, it made us us very uncomfortable and wonder if she was telling us the truth about the central village. Overall it was all disappointing, from the food to the the guide.

Had a great time on the food tour.! Be prepared for a lot of very delicious, and diverse types of food. We learned so much about the area, the architecture, famous residents (past and present), and much more. Our guide, Susan was great - articulate, interesting, and very informative. We all agreed that we will definitely return to try more of the fare at the restaurants sampled during the tour.
