This was a wonderful food tour. Our guide provided us with so much information about each of the establishments we visited and provided us with many of the historical changes occurring in the village.

We did the other Greenwich tour a couple years ago and it was terrific. When we decided to take this trip to NYC another tour was on top of the agenda. Susan was fabulous! Very friendly and knowledgeable. It's evident she loves her city and wants to share that love with others. Next trip we'd like to do Chinatown. Enjoy!

I visited New York City with a local friend. The tour was our second together and lots of fun as was the first. The tour guide had much information on the history, architecture, and food of Greenwich Village. The food was interesting, plentiful and tasted great. Don't eat breakfast and you may only need a light dinner afterward. The three hours went by so fast! We will definitely try some of the other food tours offered.

Diana was a great guide! Enthusiastic, friendly and very knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Greenwich Village. The food was absolutely delicious and we left too stuffed for dinner that night. Highly recommend this tour!

Favorite thing that we did in NY!!

This is my second time to New York and my second time doing this exact food tour, and both times, it has been my absolute favorite thing that I did! We had Susan as our guide both times, and she's the best. I chose to go on the same tour as I went on last time because I had my husband with me this time around, and it was his first trip to NY. I really wanted him to experience all the food and culture and history present in the village. I was thrilled when I saw that Susan was once again our guide for this tour. She has such a great personality and is wonderful at encouraging us all to break out of our shells and get involved. She also has an absolutely uncanny ability to remember names.

The best part about the tour is that it is so filled with history, information, and culture that you really feel like you've gotten an entire day's worth of exploring out of a three hour tour--with amazing food to boot. I recommend going on your first day of your trip so that if you see places you'd like to spend more time at, you can go back later and you're already somewhat familiar with the area.

Next trip, I'd love to do a food tour in a different neighborhood each day I'm there. My husband was reluctant about a food tour because he wasn't sure what to expect and he was worried that it seemed "too touristy", but it ended up being his favorite part of the trip! It really doesn't feel touristy at all. It feels like a family friend showing you their favorite spots of their favorite city. Well done! You rule!

I've done the Chelsea Mkt, the Original Greenwich and now the Heart of Greenwich food tours. They are awesome! For this one, Susan was fantastic and (as stated on line) it was completely different than the Original Greenwich tour. Loved it!!!

Excellent tour director, good eats

We very much enjoyed this walking food tour! Our guide, Susan, was outstanding - informative and entertaining. The food stops were very good but could have been laid out a little better...we walked in circles and passed the same places that we returned to eat at later, which seemed odd. It also would have been nice to actually walk more, and farther distances, in between stops. But overall, it was very enjoyable and we would definitely do it again!

Tour was both interesting & delicious

Even though all four of us are native New Yorkers, we all learned a lot about the history of the area. The food stops were excellent. They were varied in taste & food type. They were all places we will probably revisit. Our tour guide, Raheem, was fun, entertaining & knowledgeable.

Second Tour, Another great time
Sun, Apr 19  12:00 PM jarthur Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We took our first food tour last year and couldn't wait to take the second. Raheem (hope that is spelled correctly) was our tour guide and Ted was along to learn the tour. Both gentlemen were informative and delightful. The food on these tours amaze me. Not only is it delicious but diverse culturally. We learned fascinating historical information about the area and stories that would definitely not be found in textbooks. The group we were with included people from all over the world which also makes for great conversations as you walk through The Village. We REALLY enjoy these food tours and if you are going to be in NYC for a few days I HIGHLY recommend it. We can't wait to get back to the city to try another food tour with this wonderful company.
