Second Tour, Another great time

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.

Our guide was great. I could not believe how much food we were given at each place. 10 years ago we remember just getting a taste. This was way more food, and we loved it!

The food tour was absolutely great. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon exploring a new neighborhood and trying great food along the way. Our guide, Susan, was very warm and knowledgeable about the city, the neighborhood and the food. I was traveling alone and really enjoyed talking to the other parties on the tour and making new friends and connections. Can't wait to go on another one next time I'm in NYC!

Barri did a great job - provided interesting historical information and was warm and welcoming. The first (grilled cheese sandwich with brisket) and last (French pastry item) were the tastiest, although the Cuban fare was also noteworthy. Nice way to get a feel for the area...

We toured on a thursday afternoon with a lively group headed up by Susan. She is sweet and fun and knowledgeable and knew how to keep us moving. The food was amazing and really gave us a well rounded education in the heart of greenwich village. I cannot recommend this highly enough. You will leave full and happy and knowing more than you thought you would. You'll also want to come back and see Susan again.

A Must-do while visiting NYC

This tour is a fabulous way to experience a neighborhood in NYC! Our tour guide, Susan, had a love for her city that she easily communicated to our group. She made me and my 5 girlfriends feel as if we were visiting our girlfriend and she was taking us to her favorite local spots where we could taste, touch and learn interesting and little known facts. The amount of food and the variety of food was perfect. Portions were generous from 1/2 sandwich, a bowl of pasta, a slice of pizza and other samplings with a chance for a couple of sit-downs with the opportunity to purchase adult beverages if so desired. A most delightful way to spend a few hours that was worth every cent!

Food tastings not as interesting & tour guide neg
Sat, Apr 11  12:00 PM lorrainemanz Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We've taken this tour and others with your company and this time it just felt flat. The tastings weren't as interesting and the tour guide didn't engage us. She knew her stuff but was more acting than engaging and some in our large party (8) was really put off by her.

Best Way to See and Taste a Neighborhood

Whether you are in the big apple for the day or you live in another burough it is worth taking the time to show up for a food tour. You get a wonderful sampling of what the local restaurants and such have to offer as well as a great lil' history lesson. So put on your walking shoes and come hungry. Just don't miss this experience. Great for a couple or a group.
