A fun, tasty and informative tour. Susan was a witty and knowledgeable guide. This was our 3rd trip to NYC and our 2nd food tour. When we return, we'd like to take the Chinatown tour.

Great guide, super helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable ..... clearly loves The Village and it's food. No better way to spend 3 hours in the Big Apple.

We really enjoyed it. We were exposed to food we would have never tried - Indian street food - and it was terrific.

We toured with Susan who was informative, upbeat and fun. We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about the area, as we did on your other two tours. We've been enthusiastically recommending you to our friends and several have taken your tours ... we've heard nothing but good from them all. We love your company and your guides. Keep it up, you are simply wonderful.

Enjoyable Tour of the East Village

Though our tour guide Rahim was terrific, my wife and I thought that the Greenwich Village tour was better. We took that tour last year and the restaurants, retail shops and food selections seemed to be more interesting and tastier. Of course, it was also on that Greenwich Village tour that we were introduced to Rafele's which is now our most favorite restaurant. It could be that our expectations were too high for this East Village tour after experiencing the Greenwich Village tour.

Great time for three generations of Foodies

My two daughters, one granddaughter and I enjoyed the tour immensely. Our guide Barri (or is it Bari?) was funny, knowledgeable, and gracious. The food samples were delicious and the information about the people who "formed" the Village was fascinating. We loved going through the park and hearing more stories. While all the food was good, the salted caramel and chocolate macarones were outstanding! My daughter bought a box to take to her husband...but I know they never made it home!!

LOVED this tour -- great information & food!!!!!

My husband and I have visited New York City several times but this was the first time we did this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Barri was an excellent tour guide -- she gave us lots of interesting information and had great knowledge of the history and culture of the area. We tasted lots of great food and didn't need lunch or dinner after the tour. We did go back to one of the restaurants that was featured on the tour and had an excellent meal. We feel like we know the Greenwich Village area much better now and have the knowledge of many good restaurants that we want to return to. GREAT tour and we would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC!!!

A firiend and I visited New York and registered for the Heart of the Village food tour. We loved all of the food we tired and learned a lot about the Village and it's inhabitants. The tour leader ws both informative and entertaining.
