Not only the food
Thu, Apr 16  12:00 PM mbotto Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Even though I live close to NYC in CT, I have never been in the Village. I enjoyed not only the tasting from the various establishments, I enjoyed the tour guides history of the village. The village reminds me of Georgetown or Boston's Back Bay. Totally different than midtown. I feel the guide was great

Best food tour!

One of the best food tours I've ever taken (and I've taken 12!) Our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and funny and he spoke loudly so that everyone could hear on the food tour.

The food was fantastic. But it's always the guide who can make or break a food tour - and this guide was fantastic. He was enthusiastic and passionate about what he was talking about and you could ask him for recommendations, and his recommendations were great. We asked him what museums to go to and he recommended the Tenement Museum and the Subway museum and he was right - they were also great!

Would highly recommend this food tour!

We had a fabulous time. We had to be rescheduled to a different tour because our guide had to go to the hospital. Completely out of their control but they could not apologize enough and accommodated as many folks as they could with other tours. They were very professional and considerate. We had a great time on our tour. Robyn our guide was fun, energetic and very knowledgable. The food was great and the tour really conveyed the history and feel of the neighborhood. We would do it again and highly recommend it.

Fabulous experience at the neighbourhood

The food tour is well deigned and arranged, and it went beyond food into local culture. Our tour guide Robin is very professional and energetic, which makes our tour interesting and we laugh all the time. The other good thing of this tour is that you would have the chance to make friends with your other tour member! In one word: this tour will make your stay in NYC much more fun and bring you lots of beautiful memory.

A highlight of our time visiting Manhattan. If you like to eat and are interested in the Village this is time and money well spent.

Amazing!!
Mon, Feb 16  11:00 AM Cyclone305 Unspecified 30-39 Local Family Without Children
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

FANTASTIC AFTERNOON

I booked my tour for 12 pm and it was a great way to spend the afternoon in Greenwich. Not only do you get to eat delicious food, the tour provided information about the Greenwich area. I would recommend this tour to all ages.

Tasty, Informative Walking tour
Mon, Dec 29, 14   12:00 PM Judilew Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
As our first introduction to the Greenwich area in NYC, this walking tour was perfect. Two adults travelling with our two older teenage children, our guide was focussed, friendly and informative, and the food we sampled on the day was delicious and varied. We luckily did this tour on day 1 in NYC as it gave us ideas on restaurants we could visit later on - which we did. Highly recommended - just make sure you begin the tour hungry!
