Second time on this tour. Food was delicious, as usual with your tours. Our guide, Susan, was just wonderful.

Would highly recommend this and any tour with your company.

We left stuffed with delicious food. Our guide was infectiously friendly, helpful, and knowledgable. We'll absolutely sign up for another afternoon with Food Tours of NY on our next trip to the city!

The foCaffe Danteod was ok compared to the other 2 tours from Foods of NY that I have been on Chinatown and Orginal Greenwich.

The history and information and the tour guide were great and enjoyed that part of the tour.

The food was nothing to speak of. The coffee shop where we didn't have a tasting was much better then the tea shop we did. The other stops except for the first place CCaffe Dante and the last Once upon a Tart, were not great.

Central Village tour

This tour unfortunately disappointed all of our group. The stops were rather underwhelming. The Italian restaurant served peen pasta with neither sauce or meat. Our tour guide asked if anyone had heard of Bolognese ? Really! And we had a basic meat and cheese sandwich at another Italian restaurant and ended at a rather dirty Caribbean place who forgot our drinks! We walked around only two blocks and them did Washimgton Park. Our tour guide tried, but we thought she maybe has been doing this too long. We have done many of these tours: this one was not worth the time put in.

I've been to NYC many times, but decided to branch out with the food tour. Susan was a wonderful tour guide. She seemed very informed, and the food selections were a nice variety. While the tour lasted 3 hours, I considered it a "leisurely" tour. There were a few stops where we had the opportunity to sit down, and we walked at a slow pace. I will definitely book another tour my next visit.

One of the Highlights of our trip to New York

Our tour was on a Thursday and we were going home on Saturday which was too bad because I enjoyed the tour so much I would have booked others if we had time. After a few really cold days, Thursday turned out to be a beautiful day to walk around Greenwich Village. Our group was small - only 8 people - so it was very personal. We had a wide variety of food to sample and enjoyed it all. We are telling everyone that this is a must when they visit New York. Thank you!!!

Wonderful Tour!!!

I took my mom on this tour - she was in from FL and we had a WONDERFUl Time!! Sue the guide was terrific! full of information and fun facts! I, along with the other New Yorkers on the tour kept commenting how WE were learning facts about the city that we never knew! The food was fantastic! and the portions were bigger then expected!

I would and have been highly recommending this tour. I have been on the original Greenwich Village tour and the Chelsea Market Tour and going on this one just reconfirms that i want to take the other tours that you offer!

A total blast!

My spouse and I had so much fun! The tour is perfect at 3hrs long. The people on the tour with us were a pleasure to meet as well. And the food...you think you will only get a little morsel here or there, but we were so full by the end, I could hardly manage to eat the yummy dessert tart we got. It was all very tasty. The tour guide was informative, funny and friendly. The facts and trivia about the area we toured was very interesting. We will definitely do more of these each time we go back to NYC!
