Great food and Tour!

Susan, our guide, was energetic, knowledgeable, and sensitive to the group's needs. She was a great tour guide. I highly recommend this tour. It would be interesting for New Yorkers as well as out of towners. Each restaurant provided a substantial taste of the food and we were very satisfied and extremely full by the end!

Central Greenwich Village review

Our Central Greenwich Village food tour was fantastic. My husband, three grown children and son-in-law came with me. We loved every single food tasting and our tour guide Diana was so knowledgeable about the area and its history. We will most definitely visit some of the little shops again, and I know on our own, we would never have found these. Thank you Diana for making our visit so enjoyable.

Great food experience!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our Foods of New York Tour (Central Greenwich Village & part of SoHo) and would highly recommend it! We were impressed with all the different types of food that were offered at many different establishments, from Italian, to Indian, to Cuban, to homemade mozzarella, etc. Each type of food was unique, fresh, and something you wouldn't have necessarily tried in the past. The information shared by our guide, Diana, was very interesting and we were delighted to hear about the history and culture of the neighborhoods as well as the food itself, and the proprietors who cared so much for their excellent products. It was a very different kind of tour from the typical tourist experience, and we loved it, as did our 14-year old niece, a devotee of the Food Network! We were fortunate to have a sunny day; I am not sure how much we would have enjoyed the tour in the rain since it is a lot of walking and eating outdoors.

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 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.
