Good food, good company, interesting tid-bits of NYC history. Wish a bit more time between eating establishments. Food is good, just hard to eat so much in so little time!

Outstanding way to take a cultural bite of the Village! Enjoyed a wonderful variety of foods and our guide Susan was awesome. We would gladly do it again. Don't plan to eat again until the next day though, we ended up canceling our dinner plans!

Beautiful day in The Village

Susan was our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable of the neighborhood. We tried an eclectic variety of tastings, all well explained by Susan. Make sure you come hungry as you will be full at the end of the tour. 2 of my favorites were the empanadas ( I believe ) spinach w/cheese ( favorite ) and chicken. Also delicious fried plantains. You can purchase an alcoholic beverage at the places that offer them. There's a man rolling cigars at the front of the restaurant (named Cuba) that is given out no charge. Also really enjoyed the pappardelle bolognese, fabulous! The pasta was @ Monte's. The other tastings were delicious also ( Indian breakfast wrap, for instance). I would like to reiterate was a very cool and informed our guide Susan was.

It was the best I took all week. Raheem made the Village come alive & we learned a lot & enjoyed the food.

We even went back to Monte's for supper two nights later

This is our third tour. Will be back. Our guide Raheem was knowledgeable and

fun. We enjoyed the food, scenic neighborhood, and the company of those on

our tour. A perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Thank you all!

Too much talk

Enjoyed the food! The event is labeled a 'food tour' but ended up being 75% area history and 25% food! Would have liked it better the other way around!!

Barri the tour guide was very knowledgable about the area. The only slight recommendation I have would be that most of the tastings were heavy. Other than that extremely worth the money and would recommend.

Our food tour was in Greenwich Village and it was Fabulous! Tons of food- great history of the neighborhood- wonderful activity to do with friends. Our tour guide Susan was terrific - she is a local New Yorker and knows a ton about the neighbourhood and the city. Will do these food tours again and again!

fun thing to do in NYC
Mon, Sep 14  12:00 PM paulac617 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Foods tours are a fun way to get to know a city but differently than you would usually get to know a city. I've done a couple of food tours in Chicago but never NYC. This company did a very nice job with the tour. The food was delicious and the portions were large. Our bellies were full before the tour was over. It was an interesting way to see a part of the city I'm not very familiar with. Group size was small enough. I would highly recommend.
