Our guide, Raheem, made this an awesome experience - filled with fascinating facts about The Village and its history. The geography came alive for my daughter and me, and the foods, venues and owners were sooo wonderful. Can't wait to try another tour when I return! I hope it's with Raheem.

This tour included some fascinating food places as well as a good description of the history of the area. There was plenty of food to taste and a very good variety. We all were quite satiated when finished.

There were ample restroom stops during the tour.

Started our tour at Montes and sat at bar before tour began with the chef He was so warm and welcoming and offered my daughters and me some of his bread to taste with his own olive oilJust fantastic and a great beginning Our guide was super as was the group we joined We all got along so well and laughed and walked and ate for four hours! Great way to spend a day in NY Have visited NY at least 25 times and have never done something like this Would definitely recommend this tour to get an insight into the area and it's history and the opportunity to visit old establishments for culinary delights Left full of food friendship and fond memories Thanks

A really interesting tour with lots of yummy tastings. Don't eat lunch! And you may not want dinner either, as the amounts are quite generous. Good variety of food, good pace with some stops long enough to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant and relax. Susan was a wonderful guide!

My group of three all loved the tour. Our guide, Raheem, was wonderful. He combined information about the food we were eating with historical, political, social and entertainment stories to make the experience even more enjoyable. We all loved the variety of foods served and while everything was terrific, we each had our favorites. Believe me, you will not feel hungry when done, there was plenty of food to sample. For those concerned, it was not alot of walking and there were benches at some of the stops to rest if needed. I am telling all of my friends about what a great time we had. We are already talking about the next tour we want to take. THANK YOU FOODS OF NEW YORK AND RAHEEM.
