Fabulous Food Experience

We were recommended to Foods of New York Tours by a friend who attended a Heart of the Village tour last year. We chose the East Village tour and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Raheem, our guide, was informative, friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the mix of taste experiences and cultural information and would recommend the tour whole heartedly.

We were lucky enough to have really good weather for our tour, the first proper day of Spring, so eating on the kerbside was a pleasure.

As this was our first trip to New York, I doubt we would have visited the village area had it not been for the tour but I am so glad we did. There was a good mix of people on the tour and we enjoyed chatting to them as we ate our food and soaked up the atmosphere; so different to Manhattan where we were staying.

All in all a very memorable and pleasurable experience.

Thank you.

Great for families with teens. Very well-run, accommodates vegetarians, worth the price. Our guide was Raheem and he was terrific. Good mix of history, culinary info and delicious food. Lots and lots of food! Two opportunities to buy alcoholic beverages to go with the food, which was nice. I had an amazing mojito!

This is the 4th Food of New York Tour our group has been on over the years. Rahim was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the area with much insight on the history of same. Each food stop provided more than just a tasting and one was better than the next. Highly recommend this tour as well as Rahim as your tour guide! We will be back next year for another!!

Loved the Food Tour. Besides good food it was very informative of the history of the streets of Greenwich village.

Word of warning, do not eat breakfast before you go, there's a lot of food....go hungry.

Enjoyed the food as well as the cultural tibits given by Susan. She managed our group well even with the two taciturn teenagers that were with us. Best pizza and pasta I've eaten.

Loved another great tour from Foods of New York Tours! We did the Heart of the Village tour which I have done before. Every time I repeat a tour it's never exactly the same but the food is always delicious. The tour guides are very professional and knowledgeable. Each one has their own unique style which makes the tours so much fun and keeps you coming back for more!
