Great experience!

I would definitely do a food tour again! This was great! Our guide (Raheem) was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! We ate a ton (definitely no need for lunch afterwards)! My only suggestion is that the tour incorporate more walking between stops. The first part of the tour was within one square block and had too many stops in a row. It was too much food to eat! We then walked a bit which helped to digest and we were able to eat in the rest of the tour. Overall, I really enjoyed it! I would love to see more of the city with stops every so often.

Loved this Foods of New York Tour! The perfect amount of food (enough to get full), the perfect opportunity to learn about the history of the neighborhood (thanks Barri) and the perfect date! For two foodies, one historian and one adventurist, it was the perfect experience. Such a great time and such a great experience to "stop and enjoy the roses" and the neighborhood, and the culture, and the food, and everything! I would definitely recommend this tour!

I planned this tour for my young adult daughters, sister and mother and we were not disappointed. The food at every stop was delicious and plentiful! My mom really enjoyed the historical and cultural information about Greenwich village we learned during our tour. It was just the right amount of walking and resting for our group and Susan was a great guide. We returned to some of the places we visited and used the coupons provided to shop! This was my second tour with this company and I will be planning another tour on my next trip to NYC.

We had such a great time with Susan learning about pockets of the Village that we would never have learned about otherwise...and got to taste some great food along the way!

We had a great time on the Heart of the Village tour. Wonderful historical info, great sampling of foods, and a great tour guide. I would recommend this tour to friends or family visiting NYC.

We, my 14 year old niece, her friend and I, wanted to do something different during our trip to NY and found the food tour on line. We loved the whole experience. Our guide Susan was fantastic. She was warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and excited about the topic. The food choices were delivous and I loved the combination of the culture, food and history. I left the city in 2008 hatter 9 years and it was great to be back and experience something new! The tour was also great for the teenagers, they learned a lot from the experience. I've already recomdned the tour to other friends.

Great tour with the friendly Diana.

Really enjoyed seeing all the different locations and eateries. Delicious food tastings but be prepared to eat on the hoof as you could only sit down for 2 of the samples. Plenty to eat! There seemed to be a lot of cheese so mention it when booking if you are not keen on it!

Great overview of the area

Great tour, heaps of things to try and interesting interludes of history, information and fun insights from Diana who was exceptional. Great way to get to know an area of the city both historically (without any stuffiness) and to identify MUST VISIT places following the tour. Highly recommended

I will probably spell his name wrong, but Rawmon(he is from Brooklyn) was absolutely fantastic! He was funny and knew everything about the neighborhood. If we visit NYC again, we will definitely request him. The food was great also. We really enjoyed it.
