While we enjoyed this food tour we thought that that some of the other Foodsofny tours were better as far as restaurants and culture.

My mum and I went on the heart of the village tour. It had been recommended to us but we didn't know what to expect. Our tour guide Susan was excellent,really enthusiastic about the village and off course the food! All the food was really nice and it was such a great way to learn more about Greenwich village and get some tips on great places to eat! We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

We did the tour on a very snowy and cold day, but it was still lots of fun. It was great to visit the little shops and restaurants as well as to receive a bit of history and site seeing of the area. The food was delicious and plentiful. I was extremely full by the end of the tour. I would recommend starting the tour with a lighter item. Our first tasting was a toasted sandwich which would have almost done for lunch and it was followed by 6 additional tastings. You definitely get your money's worth with food. Our tour guide Susan seemed quite knowledgeable and she was very friendly. I would definitely do again and try a different area.

Heart of Village Tour

The food on the tour was great! It is a great value for the money and a very fun activity. The only negative was the tour guide. She was a bit harsh when we arrived when she learned that some of our party of 11 were going to be late (they ended up being 10 min late) and made a big thing about where where we sat / put out coats in the meeting place restaurant. We actualy started our tour at another place so not sure why we had to meet at one place and hand out water / napkins there vs just meeting at the actual fist stop and handing stuff out there. All in all, as I mentioned the food was good, the tour guide descriptions of the area was ok.

Not only was the food at 7 different restaurants exellent but the history of the neighborhood where the restaurants were located was very interesting!

I would recommend this tour to whoever enjoys food, likes to walk and enjoys the history of NY

Lovely your of Greenwich village

I think that Foods of NY does a great job of supplying native New Yorkers as tour guides for their tours. This is a walking tour and half of the time you'll be outside but if you take this tour like us, unsuspecting Californians, in the middle of February, expect to be exposed to the frigid bitter cold. That's about the only con for this tour. Otherwise well done and informative and very enjoyable.

This was the first food tour I had ever been on and found that it was not just about food. Great food with some added history and culture to the mix. Great tour guide Rahime really knew what he was talking about and delivered everything so well. Made the tour interactive so that the groups weren't awkward in any way. Fabulous trip with great food to boot! Hard to choose a favourite food of the tour!!!

good but could use some zip

i've taken several of the tours with Foods of New York and this was my least favorite. On the other tours, I felt like the establishments were carefully selected for their history; the anecdotes provided were insightful and humorous, the staff friendly and inviting and the tour flowed very well. didn't feel that same richness and flow on this tour. the staff did not interact with the food tour customers and something of the charm is lost in that. however, still enjoyable.
