Awesome Afternoon

We were a group of 15 co-workers on our annual summer outing. We took this tour because it was something different from what we usually do, but we had no idea of what to expect. It was WONDERFUL! It was such fun to be "tourists" in our own city. In fact, many members of the group are talking about doing it again with their family and friends. First of all, our tour guide Barri was interesting and informative. Secondly, the food was delicious. Book this tour with confidence. You will NOT be disappointed in any way. The value was excellent. The delight of the senses was priceless.

Put this on your list of "must see and do" in NYC

The Central Village/SoHo Food & Culture Tour was a definite high-light of our visit to New York City. Our tour guide, Susan, was friendly and provided very interesting information about the history of buildings, culture and people that have made this neighborhood their home over the last hundred years. The food was an excellent sampling of different types of ethnic foods available in the area. I would recommend taking a tour as soon as you get into NYC, and then you would have time to go back to eat at each of the restaurants during the rest of your stay. The next time I am in New York City I will be including another food tour in our itinerary.

The information about the area was very interesting and informative. We have been vacationing in NYC for 4 years and this tour was the highlight of our visit. The guide was excellent and we loved all the food we were able to sample along the tour. We also plan to visit some of the eating establishments next year when we visit the city. We are planning on taking another food walking tour next summer because our experience was fantastic! I would recommend this tour of Central Village and SoHo to everyone.

I love the Foods of NY tours, and have been on this tour twice in addition to one of the other area tours. Definitely a great time, and I feel like I learn new things about the city at every one! Can't wait to try another! Thanks for a wonderful day in the city.

We thoroughly recommended this tour, loved the tastings (all great) and understanding more about Greenwich Village. Good commentary along the way. We came back again to Greenwich Village for dinner and browsing.

A wonderfully tasty way to see Central Village/Soho.

Our tour guide Mr R (only cause I can't remember his christian name)

was a fabulously informative culinary expert with a good sense of humour.

We loved not only the food but the intersting facts he gave us along the way.

Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area!
