i really enjoyed the food tour. the only suggestion i would liek to pose is to not do two pizza restaurants on the tour. i understand these places probably are the simplest to do a sampling at but i think it would have been nicer to have a sample at a different type of restaurant. i am really excited to go back and try all the restaurants that were featured on the tour.

I was hoping to eat more then just walk and study an architecture.

Good thing is they give you 10% discounts on many places in SOHO.

I'm only sorry that I did not take the tour earlier in my travels to New York. NYC is overwhelming and this tour gave a local's opinion of places to go and eat. The background info of the history and local characters was great too!

Mike was an enthusiastic, entertaining, funny and informative guide. Only negative was that we ate too much! I look forward to my next visit to New York and another tour with Foods of New York.

The food tour was great. I would love to do it all again. Our guide was informative and pleasant to be with. The food was wonderful. It was my first visit to N.Y. and the greenwich village food tour was one of my favorite things about my trip.

I never knew there were so many wonderful restaurants, artisan food shops and beautiful little side streets in Greenwich Village. The group was small and friendly. The guide was well informed and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. Great fun!!

Our tour guide was enthusiastic, friendly, and accomodating. Along with taking us from eatery to shop, she pointed out some historical sites in Greenwich Village - she took our group along a street where the making of the film version of "Doubt" is now under way. She was even kind to just have our group swing by places (restaurants, for example) along our route that were not included as a tour stop. The only thing I would change is to offer more diverse food options: we had two servings of pizza, a serving of Thai food, cookies from a bakery, cheese and olives from Murray's Cheese Shop, cold cut slices from a long-time Italian butcher shop and olive oil from OOCO (not sure if I have the name right.). It's nice that I received a pamphlet of suggested eateries/restaurants that I would not have known of.
