Fantastic tour

I was a part of the Central Greenwich Village Food & Culture Tour, and took my Mum and Dad who were visiting from Australia along. Susan, our guide, was fantastic. Incredibly knowledgable, knew how to keep the group moving along but not rush us, and clearly has passion for what she does. She made sure everyone knew she was available after the tour for directions and guidance, which would be incredibly helpful if no-one in your group was a local. One minor hiccup at one of the stops, where the other group hadn't moved on meaning we had to sit at the bar. I'm always happy to sit there, but some people seemed a bit disgruntled. The food took a while to came out and wasn't that special. It sounds like they may not be on further tours though, and every other place was so nice and interesting it was easily forgivable. I'd recommend doing the tour when you first come to the city, so you have time to go back and explore!

Great way to spend an afternoon with friends

Our tour guide had a rowdy group on her hands and she kept the tour going in a timely manner. She was funny, informative, has a personal connection to the area she toured us through and it was such a fun way to spend an aft with great friends. Tour was apprx 3 hours. You don't sit down at every stop--some items are brought out to the group to eat on the sidewalk to keep the tour going. Highly recommend!!!

This was the 2nd tour I went on. The guides are so informed and they communicate in such a fun/enthusiastic way. The food you will sample is truly to die for! And these tours introduce you to places you might have never known about. SO worth the money. I highly recommend going with a group of friends...makes it that much more fun.

After a friend recommended Food Tours of NY we decided to try the Central Greenwich Village tour and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Our guide Susan was really friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the area and we learnt a lot about the village as well as sampling some really tasty food! We also saved some money on some souvenirs from a tea shop we visited which was an extra bonus.

Next time we're in NY we'll definitely be trying another food tour.

I have read about these tours on line & a friend recommended it. Our friends went along with us but were a little hesitate. All of us loved our Greenwich Village tour & would recommend it highly. The guide was very knowledgeable & obviously has a love for the area which comes thru in the tour. It was money well spent & made another great memory.

Great food and tidbits about the area

The food was great, and the history and tidbits of info interesting but perhaps the tour was a bit too long - 3.5 hours from arriving to leaving.

I found the tour a highlight of my trip, returned to one of the establishments before we left. The tour guide was informative and friendly. I only wish we could have sat more, was a hot day and I got a bit wilted out on the sidewalk. That is my only complaint, otherwise, I really enjoyed it.

Fantastic time

All five in our group have rave reviews about the tour. Our guide Rahim was amazing with his knowledge, his personable and humorous banter and his relationship with all the people in the restaurants and shops that we visited. We truly felt that we had an "insider's" view of Greenwhich and Soho. The food was great and the history lessons were amazing. We will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something fantastic to do in New York and we will be sure to try another tour the next time we return.
