Good Food and A History Lesson

Although Foods of New York wasn't responsible, the weather couldn't have been better. A beautiful afternoon and our tour host, Heather, was such a delight. She was informative, energetic and fun. The foods sampled painted a good picture of the neighborhood. This is my second experience with Foods of New York and I'm looking forward to another tour.

Fun Learning and Eating Experience

Had a great time on the tour. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area, had an outgoing, friendly personality and had a lot of fun facts.

There was more food to taste than I expected, which was a good thing. You certainly were not hungry by the end of the tour.

The only thing that was a little awkward, at times, was trying to eat some of the samplings while standing on the sidewalk with no place to set anything down. There were at least two of the establishments that allowed space for sitting while tasting.

Murray's was particularly awkward, standing in the back of the store. This was my second trip. The first time when we got to Murray's, we were allowed to sit upstairs at the tables and enjoy the cheeses, etc., which was much more comfortable.

They were very accommodating to persons with food allergies, which was great.

I would recommend the tour to friends and family who were going to New York.

Had a wonderful time...our guide was Barri and she was GREAT. Learned a lot about the Village and ate our way through some super places...going back again and spending a couple of days in the Village just because of the tour...you can have all the people and hustle in Times Square...I'll take the Village any time!

My husband and I were on our first visit to New York and a work colleague recommended participating on a food tour.

We choose the Greenwich village tour, our guide was Diana. Diana was brilliant, very knowledgable and excellent fun. The 3 hours flew by. If we ever vist New York again we will definately book another food tour.

We cannot rate it enough!

Unusual and interesting activity

Friends told us about the Greenwich Village food tour and we were really pleased that they had. It was interesting, educational, tasty and gave us an opportunity to explore the area that was previously unfamiliar to us.

We had a great tour guide, Safra, lovely sense of humour and very interesting.

Lots of food, first time I haVE eaten pizza in the morning!

Highly recomend this tour.

Our guide KerriAnn was excellent. We had fun, we ate and we learned many interesting facts on the tour. I live here and I did not know many of the things that were mentioned on the tour. I highly recommend this tour and I am going to book a tour of ChinaTown because I always feel that I really don't know that area that well. Also, the food samplings on the tour were very good and there was a lot of them. The tour was well worth the money and the time.

This was one of the best things about our trip to New York. The guide Amy was lovely, food was delicious (had to go lie down afterwards as too full to move) and overall the tour was knowledgeable, fun, informed and relaxed.

Would definitely book another tour either a different NY one or elsewhere!

Thank you Foods of NY and Amy!

First Class Tour

We booked this tour for our last day in New York before returning to the UK. Bob was our tour leader, who had a wealth of knowledge about this area, and the rest of New York if you asked him. He made the tour extremely enjoyable, entertaining and educational. The three hours went by too quickly. The food samples we tasted were great, especially the pasta dish at the Italian Restaurant in the Meat Packing District. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to discover things about New York you would never see or find out without it. We will definitely book another tour next time we visit New York.

My partner and I traveled to nyc to take in the sights and flavors of the city. We couldnt be happier with the result. We learned so much about the neighborhoods we felt like we were there when they were established. The tastings were a foodies delight and we went back to several during our stay and had meals there. A special thanks to our tour guide. She really knows her stuff. We would highly recommend this to anyone.

I found this tour on Trip Advisor. I did a little more research and then booked the tour. You never know what you're going to get with these tours so I kept my fingers crossed and headed out to meet the guide. Talk about blind luck! Bob, our guide, was awesome. Not only did we visit several bakeries and restaurants, but he gave an amazing history lesson along the way. He was very creative in his story telling and kept our interest the entire tour. I had read several complaints about the food being skimpy, but it wasn't by far and after all it's a tasting, not a dinner! I highly recommend this tour and wil be trying my luck again with one of the other locations on my next trip to NYC!

We enjoyed the tour and the guide was great. We had a lovely experience and learned a lot about the area and the Chelsea Market. The food tastings where great. We will definitly recommend this to friends and colleagues.
