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.

Raheem was an excellent and enthusiastic tour guide, shepherding us all around Central Greenwich Village and providing entertaining commentary along the way. Everything was well organized and the food was delicious, from the pizza to the chocolate pear tarts and everything in between. Come hungry--you'll have more than enough to eat! Highly recommend this tour.

We went for my boyfriend's mother's birthday. So it was myself, my boyfriend, his mother and his father. Our tour guide was the absolute best! So knowledgeable and personable. We had such a blast and loved every minute of our tour!

Fun, Educational, and DELICIOUS

I loved our tour around Central Greenwich Village! Raheem was funny, charismatic, and knowledgeable about the area and food/drinks we tasted. My friends and I were a mix of locals and tourists from the Seattle area. We had a blast sampling foods we'd never had or even heard of before and even spotted a celebrity during our walk through SoHo! I'd highly recommend this tour and this company to anyone.

This was our second food tour in NYC. We loved it. The guide was fun, personable, and knowledgeable. We appreciated getting the history of the neighborhood while walking around and visiting the restaurants and shops. Food was so good and lots of it. We plan to take the other tours.
