The food tour was both delicious and educational. Learning and tasting your way around Greenwich village and SOHO. Raheem our guide was also very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It made it much more than just a food tasting tour.

Our tour guide Rahim (not sure on the spelling) was very entertaining. He definitely made the experience very enjoyable. The history of Central Village/Soho was definitely interesting. Even for a local, there were things I didn't know before I went on the tour. Now, for the food part of the tour. It was amazing. We stopped off at 6-7 different establishments. Each had a history. My group was exceptionally surprised at the portions that were served at each place. We had assumed it would be a tasting at each one. But we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of food we were actually served. We had three sit down meals: Italian, Indian and Carribean. We even ended the tour with dessert from a French bakery. Each one could have been a stand alone meal. It's almost too much food. The size of the group was perfect, about 15. The entire tour was just slightly over 3 hours. It is definitely the right amount of walking and stopping to take in the sights. We even got to relax a bit while walking through Washington Square Park. It was a great experience. I will definitely do another of these walking/food tours. It was well worth the price.

Great experience for myself and two daughters. We enjoyed the architectural and historical aspects as well as culinary adventure. Susan, our guide, was as pleasant as she was knowledgeable. The proprietors, chefs, staff were welcoming and foods were varied and expertly prepared. We lingered in the area visiting St. Anthony of Padua church and shopping in a few of the boutiques. Thank you for a well-organized, delightful tour. The food was exceptional at every stop and the commentary by Susan gave us insight into varied ambiance of the area.

We enjoyed this food tour. The tastings were varied and very good. Our guide, Rahim, was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. This was my wife's first trip to NYC and she enjoyed it immensely. The pace was relaxed and we were far from hungry by the end of the tour. We'll go back to some of the restaurants on our next trip. Overall, well worth the money for a casual tour of the village.

Good knowledge of food in area to sample

Food was fresh and tasty

Leader talked a little too fast and there could have been a few more moments of silence

Otherwise was very good.

This was our fifth tour (each one different) and decidedly the best! Susan was a great guide and a NYC native. While we did not walk as far as we had done on previous tours, we certainly were well fed. The food was wonderful and the places we stopped were incredibly generous with the amount they provided. We are looking forward to another tour....
