Still talking about Food & Fun

Our group of 4 enjoyed the food, fellowship, facts and entire experience of our food tour. It's something I book each time I visit NYC. Great way to enjoy the city. We've done two and still talk about the delicious food and pretty sites from each tour. You should go!

So Much Good Food

Our family of four, as first time food tour people, we weren't sure what to expect. Turned out to be way more informative and filling than we imagined. Don't have breakfast if you're not a big eater, sample sizes are bigger than just a taste and there's lots them close together. We learned a lot about the area we were tasting in and had a very enjoyable afternoon. My youngest daughter thinks there should less savory food and more sweets but that sounds like a different tour all together.

Not worth the money!

What a boring group and tour guide! Not worth the money and there are plenty of other food tours where you pay-as-you-wish and for the food which will work out much cheaper.

We came to New York as a trip for my birthday and decided that this was worth a shot. It was one of our favourite things about the trip--the places we went where really neat and unexpected, we got a tour of the area while going between stops and Susan, our guide was friendly and knowledgable. And she even surprised me with a birthday dessert!! We HIGHLY recommend at least one!

Our guide Susan was knowledgeable, energetic and definitely an ambassador of both the Village and its diverse cuisine. By the end of the tour, she was like a familiar and trusted family friend. We have done several other food tours and have enjoyed each and every one. It is the perfect way to sample the tastes of the city and get to know some history as well!!

We loved this tour!

Our guide, Diana, really made the tour for us. She was funny, informative, and a real New Yorker! We all agreed that the detailed history of Greenwich Village was much more than we expected. The food was good, too of course. It was a bit on the heavy side for me. I am not a big meat eater, so if I booked a tour again, I would personally choose the vegetarian option. My favorite food experiences were the Mexican restaurant, and the patisserie! Who doesn't love a salted caramel macaron? Yum!

Fabulous way to spend an afternoon in NYC

We had a wonderful time trekking around different Greenwich village neighborhoods with our great guide, Suzanne. The food was ample and delicious. The restaurants were specifically chosen for their expertise in their food field. Never liked grilled cheese until I had one on the tour! Suzanne was knowledgable not only about the restaurants but the history of the buildings, neighborhoods and overall culture of the area we walked. Thanks so much for a great time!

Perfect. Way to experience a neighborhood

I always bring out of town guests on a foods of New York tour. The guided expertly take you through the neighborhood and you learn so muchm. It's absolutely worth the cost as you are full after all the food you eat. The restaurants are always excellent and are usually institutions in the neighborhood. The heart of the village your is great and covers a relatively small area that is jam packed with places to try and venues to expertrnce.
