A must do when visiting NYC

I read the great reviews of the Greenwich Village tour and decided to try it. I am so glad that I did! We had Raheem as a tour guide and he was just a delight! The food that we were able to try was just delicious! From pizza to meatballs to cannoli to cookies, we loved it all! You will be stuffed after the tour so don't plan to eat beforehand. If you want to experience an authentic part of NYC, take this your. You won't be sorry! We had never been to the West Village before and we found that it's our favorite part of NYC!

Though it was a very cold day in February the tour was wonderful. Diana tried to keep us inside as much as she could so we would be warm but that did not deter us from experiencing The Village and the wonderful shops it has to offer. We would definitely take another tour with Food of New York. A highlight of our first visit to New York.

To say this was an experience would be understating this fabulous foodie tour , made so very special by our uber knowledgable guide SIndy ( apols if it`s "Cindy") but truly....if you come to NYC, and want an insight into Greenwich Village food secrets and the stories behind their walls, well, this is the one to race to book on!! Loved every single bite!

Cindy was a great tour leader. We enjoyed a variety of foods, with local business and cultural history around them. We used the coupons to shop at some of the artisans immediately after, would have never thought to go inside had it not been for the tour, and had dinner at one of the restaurants. Magnifico!

A great time despite the cold

Though the weather was pretty awful (vy cold and windy) the tour guide did a great job of doing as much as possible indoors and even making a couple of detours that proved to be really interesting and informative. The guide was very knowledgeable and very approachable and the group of people were all very friendly (there was even a couple who new Village residents). Though I had been to the Village a couple of times on my own, it was great to have a tour that really explained some of the history of the neighbourhood and pointed out places not to be missed. Feel well armed to head back on my own to return to some of the great restaurants and businesses we visited. I would highly recommend the tour as a great orientation to one of NYC's best neighbourhoods.

And, incidentally, the price of the tour is a bargain considering the expertise of the tour guide and the quality of the food you get during the 3+ hours.

Let me start by saying that we had such an amazing experience I will never take a food tour with any other company unless it's through Foods of NY Tours. As long Islanders and food lovers, we come to NYC frequently to dine and explore and we were still blown away by the delicious food and learned a great deal about the history and about food in the village. The food was spectacular and Burt is amazing. He is what made the food tour so interesting. His humor, knowledge, and passion for food really comes through and made the tour unforgettable. The three hours flew by. His recommendations influenced what we did and where we ate for the remainder of our stay in Manhattan. We look forward to coming back to take another tour with this company

This tour was the perfect combination of information about the area's history paired with some of the amazing food unique to that area! Lots of food, relaxed yet purposeful tour.
