Can't wait to take another tour!

WOW! The tour was fantastic! We had a warm , sunny day for Rahim to introduce us to the foods , sights and secrets of the Central Village and SoHo. The food was delicious and the history behind each place we passed or stopped at made the tour the special experience that it was. We met people from all parts of the country and Europe. We are already planning an early summer visit to SoHo, so we can return to the restaurants and night spots.

Another FoodTour will also be on our list of THINGS WE MOST DO in NYC. We ENTHUSIASTICALLY RECOMMEND this tour!!

Our central Village/SoHo food tour was fantastic. We lucked out with great weather, our tour guide (Rahim) was knowledgeable and polite and enthusiastic. The food samples were numerous and diverse and very generous in size and all were absolutely delicious! We learned some history, admired the architecture, and enjoyed details about what we were eating as well. The brochure was a great takeaway, for future explorations and we did return to shop at three of the locations on the tour!! Thanks! We will be back again to do another food tour.

Discovering real New York dining

Our guide, Diana, was amazing - so pleasant, really enthusiastic and very knowledgable. She was fun, and spoke well and loud so that we could all hear. The restaurants and food suppliers that we visited were all fascinating. Our only criticism was that it was much nicer having our snacks INSIDE the 2 or 3 indoor tastings. The weather was showery, and so the OUTDOOR tastings were somewhat miserable. Would definitely recommend the experience and look forward to other tours on our next visit! Bravo, Diana!

This is the 3rd food tour I have taken and have loved it just as much as the others (Greenwich tour and Meatpacking District). Rahim, our tour guide, was extremely enthusiastic. The food was wonderful (again, as usual) and even though it rained at times, it was well worth it.

We really enjoyed our tour despite the weather. All the stops had great tastes. We plan to return to several places on our next trip to the Big Apple. Take a bite.

This tour was completely amazing, not only did we get to experience a very diverse menu we also learned about the history and architecture of the area. Our tour guide Raheem was quite knowledgeable. He really knows his history, everything came from memory. He had no prompts. I totally recommend this tour and am looking forward to trying the others out.

We had a great afternoon on the food tour. Our guide was fantastic and we loved all the history of neighborhood throughout the day. We found so many new places to try and can't wait to return to New York. I have made recommendations to my friends in New York about what they are missing. You will not be disappointed.
