The first stop and the Indian stop were both exceptional! If I am back in the city anytime soon, I will return to the Indian restaurant!

We've done food tours from this company in the past and have really enjoyed them! This one was no exception! Our very knowledgeable guide Barri gave us a lot of history of the Greenwich Village/Soho area, plus we stopped for a number of declicious samplings including an Italian sandwich, Indian wraps, Cuban empanadas, pasta, soup, and chocolate tart. I would highly recommend this tour or any of the other tours offered by this group! I can't wait to try another one!

Having enjoyed food tours of neighbourhoods in other cities, my wife and I were so delighted with our introduction to Soho that we'll probably stay closer to this area on our next visit to NYC. Many thanks to Susan and Todd and the restaurateurs for a most enjoyable afternoon. The mortadella sandwich at Cafe Dante was to die for!

The leader of our group was a man - I am sorry i do not remember his name- we started at 12:00 at Morrie's (sp) and tasted/toured a variety of ethnic and local restuarants, while getting a running dialogue about the neighborhood and its history. It was great, it added to my trip and gave me insight into NYC which I would not have gotten by reading tour books. I recommended the tour to other friends who also took it.

The guide was very knowledgeable about the area we toured and the food we tasted. Especially liked that he gave us background information about some of the stores and clubs that have since closed. Liked the variety of the foods tasted and that some tastings were sit down in the restaurant. It was a very enjoyable tour and highly recommend it.

My husband and I enjoyed the Food and Culture tour recommed by our travel agent who had just returned from NYC. Our tour guide was well informed and charming, as she led us through the village with its' various historic sites and restaurants. The foods we tasted were all different and very good, while the pace was leisurely. We have been telling friends about our experience and enthusiastically recommending Food Tours of New York.
