Whether you are are a "foodie" or not, this tour should please. Our tour guide Susan gave us a broad introduction to the history of Greenwich Village, it's past and present role in NYC. Tastings were very good, diverse and nicely presented. Loved learning to shop likce a local.

Susan met us with a smile that she had the entire tour.She patiently and fluidly took us through the history of Central Greenwich, which we appreciated. HIghlights of the tour: Cafe Dante's sandwich, Rabbits, Curry Tomato Soup, Masala Times Indian rolls w/ scrambled eggs and the sweet men @ Sullivan Street Tea and Spice (they shared a tea sample and were very engaging) No changes or alterations needed. Really, such a fun experience for this Wisconsin couple who makes New York their home one month each year.

The food tour was one of the highlights of my New York City visit. Susan was a wonderful guide: warm, funny, knowledgeable, and clearly passionate about her city. We visited more restaurants and shops than I expected, had delicious samples at each, and got a good overview of the neighborhood. It was a cold day, but we had plenty of chances to warm up as we popped into various establishments. I hope to visit New York City again, and would certainly take another Foods of New York tour.

We had a great time. Our daughter gave us this great afternoon as a X-mas gift. It is a super idea because we spent time with her, and we met new, nice people, including Susan, our guide. The food samplings were delicious. We loved hearing some of the history of the area too. We are definitely going to bring friends to NYC to sample these yummy restaurants and we will also try a different tour sometime in the future. Thanks, Susan for making our day special too.

This tour gave us a good overview of the area. I liked that about as much as the food! I did love all of the food we tried, and I know I would never have tried many of the food items we were offered on my own. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and we spent more time after the tour visiting recommended spots. Loved it!!

Susan was terrific!

Loved Susan as a guide. She was engaging, interesting, passionate and knowledgable!

Didn't like the offered bites as much as past tours with this company but more a reflection of the restaurant efforts than the tour group, is my guess? The pace of the tour Is not hard on your feet and plenty of options to seek a restroom if needed. Susan was diplomatic and kind but firm when some of the guests tried to take advantage by including extra friends arriving halfway thru the tour. Thanks!

A little long and while our tour guide was very knowledgeable, he was also very long winded.
