Our tour guide was Susan( don't know last name). We were a group of 15 people. She was well versed in the history of the locations and restaurants we visited. I did not like the Middle Eastern food tasting site. All the others were great. A bottled water was offered prior to leaving the meeting place. The last 1/2 hr would have been nice to have had the opportunity for a little shopping. Otherwise, I defintiely recommend.

Enthusiastically Recommend the Walking Food Tour

My two grown daughters and I loved the walking food tour through the Central Village/SoHo districts with our guide, Diana. Diana was wonderful as she was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and just plain fun. We liked being with someone who is actually from New York, clearly loves it, and is able to impart what the city has to offer. The food tastings were fabulous! We really enjoyed ourselves in spite of the fact that the afternoon seemed to get colder and colder. Thank you so much for adding so much flavor and local color to our week in New York.

This was such a wonderful experience and I am already looking into another one to attend!! Our guide, Susan, was phenomenal!! The entire day was perfect (until we got into a car accident when leaving). But that aside, the day was great and have already spread the word to friends and family about just how good it was!!

I did the Chelsea market tour a few years ago and was so impressed with the guide's knowledge and engaging way of sharing. The Greenwich Village walking tour was just as good. It was a great and tasty way to get to know a little about the area. The tastings were delicious and plentiful, though heavy on the carbs.

Delicious food and tour packed with extra info

My husband and I took this tour on a 5 day visit to New York City - it was better than we'd imagined. Our guide, Susan was full of non stop information about the food and general history of the area. The food samples were delicious and very generous, our only complaint was that we we're so full by the end of the tour! The selection of food was varied and we left feeling like we had had a great overview of a part of town that you could spend years and years exploring. Highly recommended.
