I thought that this tour was excellent! All of the food was delicious and there was enough for lunch. It was really nice to hear the history of this area of Manhattan. I would recommend this to anyone, even picky eaters.

Rajish was an excellent and informative guide to the village and Soho. We plan to take the china tour next time we are in town. The food, the sites and history made the three hours fly by. We left wanting to do another food tour.

We had a group of 4 adults and 2 children (ages 7 & 11). We booked the tour to become more acquianted with Soho & Greenwich Village. We enjoyed tasting different cuisine and listening to the tour guide's antedoctes of the area. However, we regretted that the kids were exposed to some things they shouldn't have heard or seen. This tour might be better suited for adults only.

Yet another fantastic experience!

I cannot put into words how wonderful all of these Foods of New York tours are! We did the Original Greenwich Village tour a few years ago and followed it up with the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking tour last year. Both were amazing! We did the Central Village/SoHo tour this time and could not have been more pleased! While we still go back to old favs like Joe's Pizza, Rocco's, Milk and Cookies and Faicco's, we added some new stops from this tour to our growing list of "must eats" in the Village - Cuba (we went back for lunch the next day), Bella Vitae, Monte's and Aamchi Pao (fka Indian Bread Co) to name a few! If we lived in NYC, we would be in Raffetos, Joe's Dairy and Pino's on a weekly basis! Thanks again for a fabulous time! I have recommended these tours to anyone I know that is going to NYC!

I've taken other food tours and loved them. I wasn't as impressed with this one. There was less food tasting on this tour and a lot more history and walking to places that were not food orientated. I did leave with a good understanding of the area.

This tour was outstanding! We happened to have a very interactive group where everyone mingled nicely and had a lot of laughs. That aside, the tour was phenomenal. I am a life long New Yorker so when friends and family come to town to visit I look for things I will enjoy also. I mean, how many times can you go to the top of the Empire State Building. This tour provided a rich history of the Village and great new dining spots I was unfamiliar with. There are great shops along the way as well. The three hours flew by and a great time was had by all!!!!
