Terrific way to learn a NYC neighborhood

Informative and entertaining - a great way to learn a concentrated area in NYC. Word of warning - lots of food, pace yourself! The food is fantastic and varied, but tends to be quite heavy on the Greenwich Village tour. We live in New Jersey and wanted to give this a try on our "staycation" - well worth the price and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A great time had by all!

Our tour leader, Barri, was exceptional. She was friendly, enthusiastic, and knew SO much about Greenwich Village! Our favorite stops included an exceptional grilled cheese sandwich with brisket (we'll never think of grilled cheese the same way again), an old fashioned coffee shop that was a sensory treat, and a mexican restaurant with the best tacos any of us had ever eaten! Every stop was fun, though, and in between we had our own personal tour of the village, no rush, lots of interaction. It's sold me on future food tours, especially with this company. It was a great time had by all!

This is the 4th Food of New York Tour our group has been on over the years. Rahim was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the area with much insight on the history of same. Each food stop provided more than just a tasting and one was better than the next. Highly recommend this tour as well as Rahim as your tour guide! We will be back next year for another!!

Loved another great tour from Foods of New York Tours! We did the Heart of the Village tour which I have done before. Every time I repeat a tour it's never exactly the same but the food is always delicious. The tour guides are very professional and knowledgeable. Each one has their own unique style which makes the tours so much fun and keeps you coming back for more!

Heart of Village Tour

The food on the tour was great! It is a great value for the money and a very fun activity. The only negative was the tour guide. She was a bit harsh when we arrived when she learned that some of our party of 11 were going to be late (they ended up being 10 min late) and made a big thing about where where we sat / put out coats in the meeting place restaurant. We actualy started our tour at another place so not sure why we had to meet at one place and hand out water / napkins there vs just meeting at the actual fist stop and handing stuff out there. All in all, as I mentioned the food was good, the tour guide descriptions of the area was ok.

Not only was the food at 7 different restaurants exellent but the history of the neighborhood where the restaurants were located was very interesting!

I would recommend this tour to whoever enjoys food, likes to walk and enjoys the history of NY
