Paulette was wonderful. So full of fun information, history and pop culture facts. I learned a lot of interesting stories I can toss around now when friends visit. The food was wonderful and generously portioned. Even as a local, there were many place I hadn't been to or heard of. I will definitely go back to them again and also recommend Foods of NY Tours to friends.

We simply could not have had a better guide than the one and only Paulette Goto!! WOW!! She was amazing,a and such a joy to listen to, as she explained many details about Greenwich Village and where many folks started out who are very famous and worth being talked about. :) In fact, I wish I could have recorded it...all the great stories she shared were well worth hearing and repeating. And what a great personality and sense of humor she shared with us!! GREAT JOB PAULETTE!!! YOU DESERVE A RAISE!!! :) The choices of restaurants was perfect to get a very nice sampling of a taste of all the Village has to offer ... can hardly wait to go back and explore further myself! If you're contemplating doing this tour, JUST DO IT! You will not be disappointed unless you are The Grinch.

I took my partner on this tour for her birthday, and it did not disappoint. I love how Paulette made everyone feel relaxed and welcome. The tour was a pefect mix filled with fun, a little history, and a lot of delicious food. This was my third food tour with this company and I'm looking forward to the fourth :)

Loved this tour, and tour guide Paulette. I've been on food tours in other cities, that were a little chaotic. It was wonderful to be well received at every location. I also loved the thoughtful email reminding us to dress warm. Would highly recommend and can't wait until next time I visit NYC to book another.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this food tour- not only was the food delicious, our guide Susan was so friendly and so knowledgeable about the area that we could have just listened to her all day! She made sure she got to know everyone in the group and was very accommodating . We would highly recommend this tour!

Nice way to wander the city

My husband and I have been to NYC numerous times and had seen a lot of Manhattan. We stayed in SoHo and took the Village tour to get to know the neighborhood better. I love walking around NYC and the tour was a great way to walk with purpose. Our tour guide gave us insight into the neighborhood and I enjoyed all of the food stops. It was a small enough tour that it felt more like a group or friends walking together than a huge tour invading every place.

We took this food tour on Valentine's Day and it was an awesome experience. We learned a lot about the history or the area while getting to try some yummy food.
