Good tour

This was my third food tour with this company. As always, the guide was professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

The food was plentiful and with a few exceptions, overall, tasty. That being said, I must admit that this tour did not seem as enjoyable as the first two. For this one, I felt that we ate too much on the street without really feeling the experience of each restaurant by going in and sitting down as much as the other two tours offered.

Regardless, this is still a great way to introduce out of town guests to a sampling of what New York has to offer.

This is my third food tour...and I will do another one the next time I go to NYC. I have recommended these to many others. It is a great learning experience about the neighborhoods in NY while sampling some delicious foods.

The quiet part of Manhatttan

Who knew that these hidden gems of streets existed in the middle of manhattan. Enjoyed this tour , not just for the great food, in particular Artichoke Pizza, but for the discovery of the lovely quiet streets that take you back to a much quieter time in this big bustling city. Beautiful buildings, and streets. Recommend this tour for folks who enjoy lovely architecure as well as great food.

The Central Greenwich Village tour was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. My husband and I were in NY as tourists with our son and daughter-in-law who live locally. All four of us had a lot of fun and would do another tour with this company. Our guide was very friendly and funny, and we enjoyed the food tastings. I've done the original Greenwich Village tour and liked this one just as well if not more so.

This is the 3rd food tour we have taken while visiting NYC. Certainly a highlight of our visit! Raheem was a wonderful guide and provided us with humor, history and fun! We can't wait to come back to the city and do another tour! The price is right and definitely worth the time!
