A great introduction to the real New York

The heart of the village tour was a lovely mix of history and food of the area.

Susan was a fantastic host, very welcoming and inclusive. Make sure you come hungry, plenty of tastings and generous portions. Our group went back the next night to one of the restaurants we were so impressed by it. Overall a great experience. would recommend doing a tour if coming to New York.

This was our second tour with her. Her depth of knowledge of the neighborhood is amazing. We will definitely do more Foods of New York Tours as soon as we can make it back.

Wonderful Time in the Heart of Greenwich Village

This was our 2nd Foods of NY Tour, both were equally wonderful. Great food, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides and the walk was very doable. We visited very interesting restaurants and shops and the amount of food was more than enough for mid-day. Our guide (Susan) went above and beyond, because it was my husband's birthday, she arranged for him to receive a mini flan with sparkler at the Cuban restaurant with all of us singing "Happy Birthday" to him. I am sure that we will do another Foods of NY Tour in the future!!

Diana was a great guide! Enthusiastic, friendly and very knowledgeable about the history and architecture of Greenwich Village. The food was absolutely delicious and we left too stuffed for dinner that night. Highly recommend this tour!

I've done the Chelsea Mkt, the Original Greenwich and now the Heart of Greenwich food tours. They are awesome! For this one, Susan was fantastic and (as stated on line) it was completely different than the Original Greenwich tour. Loved it!!!

Excellent tour director, good eats
Thu, Apr 23  12:00 PM jendiane Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We very much enjoyed this walking food tour! Our guide, Susan, was outstanding - informative and entertaining. The food stops were very good but could have been laid out a little better...we walked in circles and passed the same places that we returned to eat at later, which seemed odd. It also would have been nice to actually walk more, and farther distances, in between stops. But overall, it was very enjoyable and we would definitely do it again!

Tour was both interesting & delicious

Even though all four of us are native New Yorkers, we all learned a lot about the history of the area. The food stops were excellent. They were varied in taste & food type. They were all places we will probably revisit. Our tour guide, Raheem, was fun, entertaining & knowledgeable.
