Long on trivia, short on food knowledge

The tour of Central Village was a lot of meaningless trivia and very little on actual food knowledge. On several occaisions, the group stayed on the sidewalk across from the establishment and never even saw the inside of the place. We heard about the leader's family's favorites and continual rants about NYU but talked to only a few of the business owners.

We did a similar tour last year and this year was even better. Guide (Barri) was wonderful and food was really good. The history parts were so interesting and loved the people stories. Would recommend it and would do it again.

You learn so much about the area and I wouldn't have gone into half of the places of business without the knowledge and background supplied by our tour guide. Thanks for selecting great food places and giving us the background.....one of the highlights of our trip.

Beautiful experience within the heart of the City

This was our second Food Tour and this by far was the best one yet! Our tour guide was very personable and knew the history of the area in and out. He shared his personal experiences with other area eateries or shops that we didn't actually stop in as well. Definitely do not eat before going on this tour! We had enough to last the whole day. The food and experience was wonderful.

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide to SOHO

SOHO..south of Houston..who would have known unless you took a tour with a small group of friends. Our tour guide was wonderful. She had passion for the area and inspired us as she walked. We sampled food of the various restaurants and shops that has made the area what it is today. History abounds. What fun we had. The 3 hours went quickly and we can't wait to go back.

Best tour I ever took

I read about your tour after clicking on a link that I found. Our group were myself and my husband in our mid 60's, my oldest daughter and her 13 yr old son. Susan was our guide. She cannot be improved on, not even a little bit. As a born and bred New Yorker who hasn't lived in New York in many years I can vouch that she knows her stuff. The restaurants chosen were great....everyone of them. My daughter is a chef..although Susan was not aware of that and she did everything she should have done for the tour. Learned new restaurants to return to soon....I cannot think of a negative thing to say. She deserves a raise....Bonnie Foster
