Another Fabulous Food Tour

This was my second food tour through Foods of New York and it did not disappoint. Susan was our guide and she was wonderful, very entertaining and full of knowledge. I was with two of my friends and they were first timers. They were shocked at the amount of food that we received. I look forward to my next trip to NYC and will most certainly plan another food tour.

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. It was the perfect combination of food and history. We had a lively group and tried foods that I would never have tried if not for the tour.

Susan Volchok was a great leader, entertainer, and educator! She threw in all sorts of interesting history of the neighborhood as we munched our way around Greenwich Village. I went alone to this adventure and quickly made new friends from Paris, Tokyo, Cincinnati, Montreal and New Orleans. I learned a lot and had great food at each and every venue.

Great way to see the Village

We really enjoyed our food tour with Susan. I'd been recommended your Brooklyn tour by a friend but the dates didn't suit our NY stay. Delighted we choose this tour, we found it really interesting and the food was amazing, Artichoke pizza has to be the best pizza I've ever tasted.

Susan was funny and had the right mix of facts about the area along with info on the different cuisines. She was really helpful with directions for us on how to get back to our hotel as first time visitors to NY we were still a bit unsure of the subway. We might not have visited this area without going on the tour but I look forward to seeing and exploring the Village myself. I would definitely take another tour as we'd love to visit again. Highly recommended! Thank you x

There was just enough walking and talking between tastings. The food was great and portions were generous. The tour guide provided some interesting tidbits on the local area and also gave some good recommendations for places we didn't stop and taste. We are looking forward to going back to Soho for some meals and entertainment now that we have some ideas and recommendations, as well as looking forward to taking a different tour.

The tour is a great way to spend the afternoon, especially when visiting the city for one day. Tour guides, Susan and Ted were great. Thanks for a fun day!
