Our Second Foods of NY Tour

Even though I've lived in the New York area all of my life, I never seem to run out of fun things to do in Manhattan. And a Foods of NY tour is certainly one of them. My family took the West Village tour a few years ago and it was fabulous. So when my wife and I decided to take a mini vacation in the city last week, we included another F.O.N.Y tour. It was terrific, just as before. The food tasting stops were great and very diverse. Our tour guide, Rashid, was excellent. He enthusiastically explained the colorful history of the area and of the various locations we visited. His fabulous sense of humor became especially apparent as he told numerous anecdotes about the famous (and infamous) people who've lived in Greenwich Village over the years. I would highly recommend this tour to both visitor and native New Yorker alike.

This was the third food tour for me. All of them have been exceptional, but somehow this one was almost magical. It was a beautiful day, our guide was enthusiastic, informative, and fun, and the food was as always, fabulous.

We really enjoyed our tour and tasting of central Greenwich village with Susan. She was very knowledgable about the culture and food experiences in the area. In addition to telling us about the aspects of the tour, she also gave us ideas about many things to do in the village. She communicated clearly and knowledgeably with humor. When she wasn't talking to the whole group, she spoke with individuals, making us all feel comfortable and welcome. We have and will continue to recommend these food tours.

SoHo - E village tour

Some of the places were closed on a Sunday so don't go that day! Guide named Raheem talked too much and promoted his wife, his favorite restaurants that weren't part of the samples. tour. Got bored with him. But I've taken several of the companys tours and ALL of them have been great. That's why this was such a disapointment.

This was the fifth time I've done a tour with Tours of NY and it didn't disappoint. Our tour guide, Raheem, was informative and humorous and full of fun facts about the area. The foods were diverse, delicious and plentiful. No need for dinner that evening, that's for sure! These tours are well worth the time and money. Don't hesitate - do it!

Interesting tour combining food (lots of it--ok to skip breakfast to get ready), architecture, history and local color. Well planned, and very good guide (Raheem.) Also good range of food--Italian, Cuban, Indian, desserts. Highly recommended. Have taken other food tours--this is easily the best.
