Not as informative or as interesting as the original Greenwich tour, but still enjoyed the tour. The food on this tour was very good and more of a variety than the other tour. Especially liked the Masala Indian restaurant.

We had a great time! Our guide, Susan, was a neighborhood resident who was knowledgeable and passionate about where she lived. The food was both varied and delicious. It was nice to be in an urban area that also had a true small town vibe.

We very much enjoyed our walk through Central Village and SoHo. Susan was our guide and the perspective that she brought to the tour as a native was priceless. The food offered was excellent and plentiful. Don't attend this tour and plan on an early dinner- definitely will be too full. Great value for the money.

This tour was so-so at best. Some interesting food, not much on the local history or culture, very little walking and a guide whose enthusiasm for the neighborhood bordered on arrogance made this a blah event. (For our guide, you evidently would be amazed to learn there are ethnic restaurants, spice stores and coffee stores outside NYC!)

Can't recommend this one. Just not enough there. The highlight was the mojito at the Cuban restaurant, the name of which escapes me (yep, the tour was that memorable).

Spend your valuable time elsewhere.

We enjoyed the tour and tasting a large variety of ethnic foods. some we liked some not. would have liked time to shop a bit. So far all the food tours we have taken have been a really fun day out.

It's now an annual tradition for me and my mother. We went on a similar tour last year that was amazing as well. This tour had so much food, we did not walk away hungry. The guide was extremely knowledgable and you could tell loved her job. We will go again next year!
