We loved the tour with Barri as our guide. She highlighted the most interesting facts about NYC. The food tastings were large and we were full after the tour. I would recommend this tour company to anyone of any age and ability. This is the most accommodating tour company I have used!! Take this tour and you will have the best time.

I went on the tour with a group of friends. We were all impressed with the tour guide and with the restaurants chosen. The food was delicious and the information on the history of the area was very interesting. I'm planning to do another your again since I enjoyed this so much.

Another Great Food Tour

The Central Greenwich Food Tour was great. Raheem was our guide and was friendly and knowledgable about the area, food and culture. The portions provided were a great size and very filling. I liked Toloache (which was new to the tour). We had dinner at another Toloache location the night before and had enjoyed it. The tasting was something different on the menu for us. I will say that their guacamole was delicious and would be a great addition to the tasting. This is the 3rd food tour that I've done with Food Tours of NY and hope to do more when returning to NYC. Our group included myself, my husband and 2 teenage daughters (who loved it, too).

Rahem was AWESOME!

I honestly didn't know what to expect from this tour because as a local I never really do touristy things. A friend had bought tickets as part of a bachelor party weekend.

We had Rahem as a guide. He was very informative and witty. He obviously knows the neighborhood. You can tell that he has a good rapport with the business owners and workers. He was very interactive with the group and made it a point to know our names.

I thought we'd just walk around and would eat a little bit from a few restaurants in the neighborhood.

I was wrong. We all got a bit of history with our delicious tastings.

It was a great experience and I will definitely go back to a few of the restaurants that we visited.

I saw the village from a completely different aspect and it was DELICIOUS!
