Wow! Great tour

This is the 2nd tour that I have done (the first one was the Chelsea Market we did 2 years ago. This one did not disappoint at all. Excellent food (more than expected), great side notes and history. I highly recommend this tour to friends and fellow reviewers. The only negative about the tour (if you can even call it that), is that we didn't get Kurt as our tour guide, as hoped. But ours did a fantastic job!!! If you haven't had Kurt, he absolutely rocks. He is the best guide you will ever find, and is a gem. He is the reason we came back.

We did a similar tour last year and this year was even better. Guide (Barri) was wonderful and food was really good. The history parts were so interesting and loved the people stories. Would recommend it and would do it again.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was lots of fun and knew much about the neighborhood - both current and historical events. We went back to two of the selected restaurants for a full dinner and were completely satisfied.

We would do this tour again and look forward to doing the other tours offered by this company next time we're in New York City.

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.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in exploring parts of NYC that are more local and less "touristy".
