Outstanding even on such a cold, windy day!

Our guide, Raheem, had a superb personality and was so informative and fun. The tastings were amazing. The shops and restaurants were a great mix of various ethnic choices. We would highly recommend this tour to people of a variety of ages. Singles, domestic and international tourists and, yes, New Yorkers, would all enjoy. We will definitely pass this info to anyone we know will be in NYC in the future. It is a great value as well.

A delightful first experience in New York

Upon the recommendation of a friend, I booked the Greenwich Village/Soho tour for my husband and myself for our first day in New York. It's been 30 years since I visited New York, and we had just 3 days to feel the rhythm of the city. Our tour was terrifuc, owing to the knowledge and enthusiasm of our guide. (I believe his name is Rahim, a charming young man.) His knowledge of the neighborhoods, his appreciation of the history, and his love of the food made our visit to the area such a pleasure. Thank you for treating us tourists to such a pleasurable experience.

Our tour guide, Raheem, was a fountain in information. He knew about not only the food but the history of the area. That was an added delight and very informative. Also, everything we tried was delish!

Our tour guide Susan was very pleasant and well informed of the area and the different foods tasted. She made the tour feel less like a tour and more like a group of friends exploring Greenwich village.

Misnomer on the tour

We truly enjoyed the tour although were disappointed there was only one stop in Soho. The food was delicious but the mojito was a little overpriced. Weather was great. There are so many restaurants to enjoy and we did go back to Masala Times. Raheem was knowledgable and we truly enjoyed him. All in all a good experience.

This was my 3rd time using this company and they rocked. This is a non-touristy insider view of the neighborhood.. Our guide, Rajid, was amazingly informative and funny as hell!.

Excellent combination of food and area history

Susan was a terrific host; she possessed great knowledge of the area and was enthusiastic about all the foods and the sites we visited. The pace and the length of the tour was just right. I would do another food tour in a New York minute.

I found the tour a highlight of my trip, returned to one of the establishments before we left. The tour guide was informative and friendly. I only wish we could have sat more, was a hot day and I got a bit wilted out on the sidewalk. That is my only complaint, otherwise, I really enjoyed it.

We thoroughly enjoyed the your. I had done other food tours but this one was my husband's first. We appreciated the information about the neighborhood and its architecture as well as the food.
