Opera lovers love it

Our group of 7, in NYC for opera and shows, decided to expand our knowledge of the city through the tour. Though we have varied food likes and dislikes and one of us has celiac disease, the tour seemed to cater to each! What fun , even in foul weather. And it gave us lots of ideas on places to eat on our next visit.

Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, upbeat, and kind. He gave us much information quickly without hemming, hawing, or fracturing grammar. The food was varied, delicious, and provided in generous quantities. If I'm ever lucky enough to return to New York, I will take another of these tours.

This was a very informative and interesting tour and food tasting . Our guide was great and made the time spent very enjoyable--even though it was cold and rainy that morning. I loved the food as well.

This was a great experience even though the weather was in the 20's. Our guide was so enthusiastic & knowledgeable about the Village & Soho that he made the tour come alive with the personalities & history of the area. The shopkeepers were very hospitable. You must try the mojitos at Cuba. I plan on taking this tour again in the Fall so I can enjoy it even more!

A great way to spend a day away from busy Manhattan. The variety of food samples

was great. Barrie, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the history

of places visited and areas along the way to the different eateries. Would return to

experience other tours. Have already recommended the tour to friends.

Terrific tour and tastings

The tour of Central Village and a bit of Soho was a highlight of my trip to NY. Our guide Susan was welcoming and well informed as she guided us through the Greenwich Village neighborhood, with a bit of history here and a bite to eat there. All of the food offerings were delicious, and I have a wide variety of restaurant choices to recommend the next time I'm in NY. Thanks for a great afternoon!

We come every year in December and just explore the city . We are from the DC area, and 2 of us have lived in NJ and NY state, and visited the city often in the past. BUT none of had ever done a food tour! Susan was our guide and she made our first experience a wonderful experience! We want to do another one next year! It may become a tradition! Thanks!
