Lovely your of Greenwich village

I think that Foods of NY does a great job of supplying native New Yorkers as tour guides for their tours. This is a walking tour and half of the time you'll be outside but if you take this tour like us, unsuspecting Californians, in the middle of February, expect to be exposed to the frigid bitter cold. That's about the only con for this tour. Otherwise well done and informative and very enjoyable.

This was the first food tour I had ever been on and found that it was not just about food. Great food with some added history and culture to the mix. Great tour guide Rahime really knew what he was talking about and delivered everything so well. Made the tour interactive so that the groups weren't awkward in any way. Fabulous trip with great food to boot! Hard to choose a favourite food of the tour!!!

good but could use some zip

i've taken several of the tours with Foods of New York and this was my least favorite. On the other tours, I felt like the establishments were carefully selected for their history; the anecdotes provided were insightful and humorous, the staff friendly and inviting and the tour flowed very well. didn't feel that same richness and flow on this tour. the staff did not interact with the food tour customers and something of the charm is lost in that. however, still enjoyable.

Second time on this tour and LOVED it!

We first did a Foods of NY tour with our children about 5 years ago - the Original Greenwich Village tour. Let's just say that walking & talking & eating my way through cities has now become a "must-do" when we travel! In September, we did the Heart of the Village Tour while on a weekend getaway without the kids...we loved it SO MUCH when we were back in town this past weekend with the children we did it again!! Everyone loved it and our tour guide Susan was fun & personable! I recommend these tours to anyone and everyone I know who is heading to NYC!

I have done the Greenwich Village and Chelsea/Meatpacking food tours and this one was by far the best when it came to the food!!! There was so much of it and two awesome sit down tastings and so many varieties of food, I highly recommend this food tour and our guide Susan was the best!

Tour guide was wonderful

I had done this tour about six years ago. I did not remember much about that tour. The guide, Susan was knowledgeable and welcoming. The foods were a good mixture of the village area. The meeting place was easy to locate (unlike when we had to ,locate the cite for the Chinatown tour).

Very energetic guide which gave us a very informative tour about the area. The food tastes were plentiful and savory. Every time I am in the city I try to take one of your tours and I always recommend your company for the food tours. I am excited that you have added a cooking class and can't wait to take it. I just have to find the time to get to the city during the week. Keep doing what you are doing. Your company is the BEST at what you do.

We thoroughly enjoyed.the tour. Guide Susan was enthusiastic and informative. Food was great. Enjoyed the variety. It was freezing the day we took the tour and we were able to stop at several of the restraurants while we sampled the food and warm up. Would definitely recommend and look forward to taking another one next time.
