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 tour guide, Susan, was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining! But the food was fantastic!!! This is the second time on this tour (we have done them all)...and we loved the new additions!! Already planning to re-do the rest of them again. I highly recommend these tours..the food is always great, we learn so much about the neighborhoods and the price is amazing!!! You can't go wrong!

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.

We were able to taste many different foods while hearing about the culture and history of the neighborhood.

There were ample restroom stops during the tour.

Started our tour at Montes and sat at bar before tour began with the chef He was so warm and welcoming and offered my daughters and me some of his bread to taste with his own olive oilJust fantastic and a great beginning Our guide was super as was the group we joined We all got along so well and laughed and walked and ate for four hours! Great way to spend a day in NY Have visited NY at least 25 times and have never done something like this Would definitely recommend this tour to get an insight into the area and it's history and the opportunity to visit old establishments for culinary delights Left full of food friendship and fond memories Thanks

A really interesting tour with lots of yummy tastings. Don't eat lunch! And you may not want dinner either, as the amounts are quite generous. Good variety of food, good pace with some stops long enough to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant and relax. Susan was a wonderful guide!
