Fantastic Experience!

This was the third food tour for me. All of them have been exceptional, but somehow this one was almost magical. It was a beautiful day, our guide was enthusiastic, informative, and fun, and the food was as always, fabulous.

We are 2 families with 4 teens. It was fun, delicious and interesting to all. Super hot day and our guide made sure we were well hydrated and in the shade. We did the tour on the last day for our final hi-lite. We all agreed it would have been bettter to do the tour early on so we could have gone back to eat full meals at the various restaurants.

SoHo - E village tour

Some of the places were closed on a Sunday so don't go that day! Guide named Raheem talked too much and promoted his wife, his favorite restaurants that weren't part of the samples. tour. Got bored with him. But I've taken several of the companys tours and ALL of them have been great. That's why this was such a disapointment.

This was the fifth time I've done a tour with Tours of NY and it didn't disappoint. Our tour guide, Raheem, was informative and humorous and full of fun facts about the area. The foods were diverse, delicious and plentiful. No need for dinner that evening, that's for sure! These tours are well worth the time and money. Don't hesitate - do it!

I loved Susan our well spoken and welcoming tour guide . She gave us all of the interesting cultural info on the village. The food was so good and I was surprised that we got so much! Do not eat for about 4 hours prior to this tour . Expect to have fun , learn a lot about the neighborhoods history and whats going on currently. . The walk is easy and Susan kept us in the shade most of the time . This was my 2nd tour with this company . I'm looking forward to learning about a new neighborhood next time I visit !

This by far was one of the highlights of my trip to New York! Our guide was knowledgeable, funny, kind and kept us moving at a good pace. She let us wander just a bit - but was able to get us to all of the places we were scheduled to go. Every tasting and stopping point had something special about it - from the beginning point, to the park, to each cafe, restaurant and quick stop. I loved the tastings on the streets. I was worried about too much sitting - but it was just right. LOVED IT! I will be back and plan to bring many more with me. RBBTS shake was AWESOME!
