Great food!

Great food! We were able to sample food from other countries (i.e. Indian, Greek, Italian, Middle Eastern). The tour was interesting and tour guide was very knowledgeable. We were looking forward to the Israeli and Jamaican food as described in the tour info, but for some unexplained reason we never got to sample these foods. We would like to recommend that tour ends where it starts. It was a bit confusing to get back to our subway station afterwards. We did not enjoy this tour as much as the Greenwich Village food tour which we took last year. Bleecker Street Pizza remains our all time New York pizza favorite!!!!

wonderful way to spend a day

We had a wonderful time walking and eating around the Village and SoHo. It was great to learn the history of the area and to be told about current spots to try both to eat and listen (comedy and music clubs), We were told about many places we would otherwise have just walked by and were tipped off as to what to order at many places.

We learned so much while enjoying different and delicious foods. The time passed by too quickly as we were always immersed in the beauty and culture of the neighborhood.

Insider view of the Village

If you'd like to experience Greenwich Village like a true Village insider, I highly recommend you take this tour. Your guide, Raheem, is very knowledgeable and surprising thin for the amount of great food he has available to him during these tours! We had more than enough to eat and the variety and quality of the food we tasted was really remarkable. It was especially rewarding for those of us on the tour who live in NY, as we can take advantage of these establishments on a regular basis. We even had a few minutes to buy some of the products - I'm really enjoying the "The Heat is On" peanut butter I picked up while on our tour. Additionally, you learn so much about the history of The Village and SoHo and the people that shaped those neighborhoods over the years, the 3 hours fly by. Anyone that enjoys food and loves NY would find this a great experience.

A delicious, fun & varied tour

My parents & I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide Rashim was fantastic, he is passionate about food and knows the area very well. He combines lots of curious historical facts with interesting restaurants & stores with tastings that range from typical indian street food & a bizarre store dedicated to peanut butter to witnessing the artisanal process of hand making mozarrella cheese & jamaican pasties.

At the end of the tour we had tasted about 8 or 9 different things which added up to a very hearty lunch.

What fun, history, culture and food. It does not get better and I look forward to taking more of these. Please have one for each section of the city.

It was worth every penny.

Our guide Rahim was a delight, pleasant & very knowledgeable. He had an excellent rapport with all of the group & with all the establishments that we visited. The variety of tastings was excellent spanning a number of different cultures. His knowledge of the areas that we visited was also presented very well. Highly recommend the tour.

Even having to trudge through the slushy snow, it was informative and our guide

Rahim ( sorry about the spelling} was so enthusiastic. Had we been in NY longer we would definately have booked one of the other tours, so will recommend your company to any future visitors.

Thanks again.
