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.

Best Way to See and Taste a Neighborhood

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.

I enjoyed every aspect of our tour, from the history of the area to the delicious food we tasted. Will highly recommend this to my friends who are planning a trip to NYC. Our tour guide was great and I loved that she grew up in the area of our tour.

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!
