It was well organized and the food tastings were delicious. We highly recommend it whether you live in Manhattan or are just visiting. We met people on the tour from Australia as well as around the country.

Thank-you Susan of Foods of NY for a great tour of Soho and Greenwich!

The tastings were delicious!

And the history tour of the Village was fantastic! SUSAN was fabulous!!

We even came back the next night and tried Monty's for dinner and thought it was quite good.

Would recommend it to friends for a fun walk around a great area -- tasting a few delights and happily learning about the ins-and outs of a cool area!

Great way to spend 3 hours in the out doors learning about area . Adequate sevings of food from many small and unknown restaurants that are voted the best in NY. Our tour guide ,Rahasma?, was very knowledgabe, friendly and took great care of us in the rain. This tour was so much fun as well as informative. Be sure to eat a very light breakfast because there is lots of ample food to sample. This is my second food tasting tour with this company and I intend to do them all.

The best tour we did in New York

I took my mum (aged 73) on this tour with myself. It was simply the best tour we did the whole time we spent in New York. Raheem was our guide - so knowledgeable and passionate about food and the Greenwich / Soho area. We tried at least seven different dishes - including one cocktail (additional price but very reasonable). The group was small (no more than 15) so we all kept up a timely pace whilst we could ask lots of questions. I have travelled extensively over the years - and this was one of the very best tours I have done. When I go back to New York - I will do another tour - it was simply great.

I have to admit that paying for and participating in guided tours was something I liked to avoid. I'd always felt that I could see and investigate more by doing it on MY schedule and My time.BUT...being a "foodie", this tour peaked my interest. What I discovered was sooo much more information was fed (no pun intended) to me that I otherwise would not likely have found out on my own. The whole experience made me want to go back to spend more time in the Soho/Greenwich area in restaurants, comedy cellars, and music clubs. My time being limited didn't allow me to do this but I will look forward to picking up where I left off upon another trip to your fabulous city. Our tour guide was amazing, informative, and efficient. Our three and a half hours with her went far too quickly and we parted having tasted such amazing food that I mentally savour to this day. I have highly recommended to others to book this tour if ever they have the chance. Sadly, I may never enjoy a "Canadian" New York Cheesecake again nor a slice of mozzarella cheese like I did with you but it will give me reason to return to relive the experience, right? Thank you for contributing to making my first visit to New York a trip I will always remember .And next time, I will give more consideration to the "guided tour' option when presented with it in my travels.....bon appetite.....Sally Miles
