The tour was a great experience. It not only gave you a taste of various NY foods (which were all awesome), but a great history of the area and how it came about. I LOVED IT! If I get back to NY I will definitly do another tour with you.

Even though it was coldish and drizzling rain, we thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

Raheem was very personable and knowledgeable, sharing history and insights about the area. The food tastings were really good, giving you a diverse sampling of some of the foods available in this area. It was a really good way to see a part of the "real" New York. We look forward to going on the other tours on our next visit to New York.

I was with my granddaughter 19 years old and she enjoyed as much if not more than I did. Our guide was very informative, funny and charming and willing to answer any question posed to him. We learned the history of the area and went back that night to dine at the Italian restaurant that we were introduced to during our tour. We saw areas of the City that we would have otherwise not seen. Wonderful and a must do when visiting New York.

We have taken the other FONY tours of SOHO and Chelsea and have enjoyed them immensly. The Central Village tour we took this past weekend did not dissappoint. Raheem the guide was personable, knowledgeable, and thoroughly enjoyable. If you are not planning any new NYC tours, we'll just have to consider repeating.

Our guide Diana was informative and well versed in her subject. The food was varied and very good. The weather left a lot to be desired as it was extremely cold and icy. Diana did everything in her power to keep us warm and entertained. Will do this tour again on a nice spring day. this was one of my daughter's Christmas presents and she enjoyed it tremendously. Thank you.

Great afternoon, spoilt only by the biting cold. Rahim was an articulate and charismatic guide who displayed in depth knowledge on both the food and the areas we passed through.
