My daughter and I took the Heart of the Village tour with Diana. She was great!! The tour was wonderful and the food was fabulous! We chose this tour in particular because of the variety of foods....it included Italian, Mexican and Indian goodies! The tour description noting that lunch is not needed after the tour is more than accurate...we were stuffed! Definitely will be doing another one!!

I had a fantastic afternoon wandering around Greenwich Village, taking in the sites and history and food. Barri, our guide, had a wonderful knowledge of the area and its heritage and her enthusiasm was infectious. The food stops were all highlights, its hard to pick one stop over the others, there was a great mix of local and ethnic foods and plenty of it! If you're looking for a relaxed afternoon, with great company,and taking in a genuine New York experience, this is for you

A 'must do' in New York

This tour my second experience with Food Tours of New York and it was as great as the first! This is one of the was the best ways to visit areas in New York. Our guide provided us with insight into the history of the East Village that was knowledgeable and witty. The food samples were very generous and delicious and the hospitality of all of the host restaurants was exceptional. The people of the Village were most generous in sharing their home with us, often stopping to add their perspectives to our guide's commentary. It was a great afternoon. I will share my experience with my friends and will continue to book one of these tours every time I visit New York.

terrific introduction to the area

This tour is highly recommended. It gives a wonderful insight to the area in a way that you just cannot get any other way. Not only are you taken to see some first class eateries, with very delicious samples to eat, but you hear about the stories behind the scenes. We stayed in the area for 2 weeks, and would never have appreciated or understood the place if we had not done this tour. Our tour guide, Barri, was wonderful and knowledgeable and the pace just right.
