It was my first visit to New York. This tour made it worth the trip, it was informative and fun. Our tour guide was incredible, he made it fun. When i go back to New York i will definitely take another tour. Thanks so much for the fun.

Diana was extremely knowledgeable as she pointed out all of the interesting facts throughout the Village. The ride home was interesting as each person from ages 12 to 72 remembered different facts that she taught us througout the day. Our group consisted of 7 people from 12 to 27 and 7 people from 45 to 72...highly recommend this tour for everyone. Perfect way to spend Father's Day...eating and drinking for 3 hours.

I can not wait to go back to NYC to do all the other food tours with New York Tours. Our tour guide, Susan, was super friendly and informative. Not only did we eat 8 different types of food from different cultures, I learned a lot about the Greenwich Village area. I grew up right outside of NYC and thought I knew all about it, but nope, I learned so much. It also showed me more local shops and restaurants that I will visit again.

Enjoyed the tour very much. My sister from California accompanied me. The weather was great and all the food was great everywhere we stopped. This is my second time taking this tour and enjoyed it as much as the first time.

Informative, Large Portions of delicious samples

I enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was friendly and informative throughout. Covered a good amount of territory of NY. The restaurants that we toured had excellent food with a culinary twist. All of it was good!

The only downside, is that I wish the tour did not include so much of the "culture" part. (I'm all about the food!) Although, I enjoyed the tour of Washington Park, I feel that part could have been shorter and maybe that time could have been spent lingering a little more at one of the restaurants chatting with others, or one of the gourmet food shops for quick shopping. Other than that, I really enjoyed this tour!

Something for everyone and not to be missed

We've made foodie tours a standard activity in all cities where they are a available. Nothing beats New York, though, and this is our second one here. Great and knowledgeable guide (diana) with enthusiastic and personable personality. Pizza, pasta, Indian, high-end Mexican and a purple haze egg cream( plus more I don't have time to mention) was well spaced. But a foodie tour is so much more: A great overview of Greenwich village with just enough history and fun facts to make it interestingl

Our group enjoyed the tour very much. It was a great way to wander a small section of NYC and learn a little history and enjoy some great food. We especially enjoyed visiting the spice store, the coffee store and the little Italian pasta store.
