Great way to experience the real New York

Our guide provided a feel for the real New York (at least in the Greenwich Village area). His knowledge of the area, and its history and people was exceptional. The tastings were all wonderful, and represented a wide variety of ethnic and local foods. In addition to the scheduled tasting stops he introduced us to several other local food vendors. This was an enjoyable and educational way to spend 3 hours in the city.

I purchased this as a surprise day for my daughter's birthday. The experience was awesome but in part due to our very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide Rahin. Highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys food and fun local history. Will definitely do another .

This is the 3rd food & culture tour I have attended. Thought this one was a bit light on content & a bit drawn out. There could have been more info & could have covered more actual area.

A bit fluffy

Susan was our tour guide and she did an amazing job!!! We learned SO much about parts of Greenwich village and SoHo. The food was delicious and we were well fed. My favorite places were the Indian Restaurant and the Cuban restaurant. Their food packed a punch! However the others were very good too. We enjoyed the whole tour immensely and HIGHLY recommend it!! We only wish we had given Susan a much bigger tip. She deserved it.

Our tour guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining! But the food was fantastic!!! This is the second time on this tour (we have done them all)...and we loved the new additions!! Already planning to re-do the rest of them again. I highly recommend these tours..the food is always great, we learn so much about the neighborhoods and the price is amazing!!! You can't go wrong!

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.
