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

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.

Rahim was a great tour guide! He offered so much to the tour. His knowledge of the area and its history made it very entertaining. The food was fantastic and Rahim also offered other ideas of places to go to eat and visit. I highly recommend the tour and request Rahim!

our whole family loved this tour. Our guide, Susan, was friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Greenwich Village and food. The food samples were diverse and delicious. We'll do another food tour on our next visit to NYC.

Wonderful cultural and culinary tour

Tour provided just the right amount of history and food for my son and me. We're locals and familiar with NYC but the mini tour and food was just a perfect mix of everything on a lovely September day. The tour guide, Barri, was very informed and got us from place to place comfortably and efficiently.

Food was a little heavy
Sat, Sep 5, 15   12:00 PM Sealep Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Our guide was very pleasant and interested in the neighborhood. The thing I didn't care for was the heaviness of the food. We started with a cheese and brisket sandwich that was good, but it was too filling to start. The tour also had a cheese pizza that was fine, but, again, very heavy. If you go, I would recommend eating no more than half of the portions.
