The food on our tour was wonderful. Our guide Barri was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and New York. I would definitely take another tour with this group. I was very full by the time we left. My only complaint was that our group was too big (17). We had too many people to fit into several of the food establishments. The ambiance of the restaurant is just as important as the food sometimes. Overall a good tour.

Fun, tasty and interesting Greenwich Village experience. Our tour guide was up beat and fun and took us to some great places that I would like to go back to. Especially like the chance to have a cocktail along the way. Will do another tour next visit and would highly recommend it.

The food was so good. Plenty, come hungry. Walk was easy for someone in their 70's. Guide was very good at his job and was very knowledgable of the areas we visited. Would definately reccomend this tour.

Our tour guide, Diana, was fabulous. She kept us moving and was a wealth of knowledge about the area, the restaurants, the food and lots of fun facts. The food was incredible!!!!! Great selections starting with the grilled cheese and ending with the macrarons!!! The Cuban selection of food I would have changed only because we are not a fan of fried foods but it was tasty and the atmosphere was adorable. We will definitely do another tour next time we are in the city.

We loved the variety of different foods you get to try as well as learning facts about the neighborhood. The food was diverse but not too unusual so it appealed to most everyone in our group. Diana, our tour guide, was fantastic! I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Our guide Diana was born and raised in NYC. She was knowledgable about all within the tour area as well as NYC in general. She is funny, witty and entertaining to boot! It was very obvious she loved her job and kept all entertained for the entire tour. The stops and the food sampling was over the top. Come hungry, leave very full!l I didnt have dinner until 930 at night!!! The ethnic variety was enjoyed. I must note I am very fussy and everything was outstanding. Hot ,fresh, and tasty. Take this tour, for the price it is unbelievable that you get so much bang for your buck....history, food and entertainment . Thank you Diana and Food Tours of NYC.

This is the fourth tour I have taken with this company and each time the experience has been memorable. I wish more tours could be added. Susan our tout guide was great. The food was oh so delish and there was plenty of it. Loved the fun fact about the secret room in the Washington arch. I would highly recommend these tours.
