Another great tour

This was a third tour and we enjoyed it as thoroughly as the previous two tours. Although it was raining the entire time, the food, stores, and history still made for a fantastic tour. Our guide, Raheem, is high-energy, fun, and knowledgeable and he kept the tour moving and made each stop and taste come to life. We plan to do the other two tours during our next couple of visits to the city.

Also, the food tastings provide more than enough lunch for the heartiest of eaters. We are all quite full by the end of the tour.

If you want a chance to see the sights, taste the food ,and learn some history about Greenwich Village then this is the tour for you. Very informal but well organized to maximize the time spent. I really enjoyed it all.

I highly recommend the village/soho tour!!! The tour guide susan was fantastic--learning about the culture and history of the village/soho from her was so interesting! The food was also all incredible. Great variety as well. You get a ton of food too--i was in a food coma afterwards!

Gave us a great introduction to the area. I was with my daughter on the tour and she lives in NYC. I was visiting but she enjoyed the tour as much as I did! Would highly recommend this to anyone that visits NY. I'd like to try another one of the tours when I visit again.

We enjoyed our culinary tour of Greenwich Village/Soho. The food samples were amazing and plenty. The smoked mozzarella was to die for. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us opportunity to ask questions.

I would definitely book another tour with this company.

We had a small group of nine lead by an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide,Susan. We arrived very hungry with little local knowdge. We left feeling very informed about the local history, cuisine and with very full tummies! We got insider tips of places to eat and returned the next evening for a great dinner as had been highlighted along the way. A very well spent afternoon and well worth the price.

I have done this type of Food tour twice before. Both other ones were the Greenwich Village Food Tour. This one was my least favorite of the three. I felt the food stops was rushed and too much time spent on history. When it came to stopping for food our tour guide kept telling us we had to hurry. When we were able to get a drink (alcoholic) she told us to drink up as we did not have much time left. So at that point we did not really enjoy the food or drink since we had to inhale it. The tour guides i had before were better and friendlier. Overall just ok. I would do it again however since I know I enjoyed in the past.
