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!!!

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.

Wonderful intro to the neighborhood AND great food

We learned a ton from our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Susan. Lots of interesting facts about the history and present of that part of Greenwich Village. The food stops were all excellent, and we were stuffed (though pleasantly so) by the end. One of us grew up in NY but haven't lived there in over 30 years, and we still learned some new things. Would definitely recommend as a fun and easy way to learn about a part of the city.

Whether you are in the big apple for the day or you live in another burough it is worth taking the time to show up for a food tour. You get a wonderful sampling of what the local restaurants and such have to offer as well as a great lil' history lesson. So put on your walking shoes and come hungry. Just don't miss this experience. Great for a couple or a group.
