loved Cindy!

the tour was great, appreciate the glorious weather (!) and Cindy's knowledge of history made the event even better. I was also pleased that the store/restuarant owners seemd so thrilled to have us ... the all seemed to take an interest in us and were enthusiastic about their place!

I didnt really care for Aphrodesia - that was a stop I wish I missed... no food, uninterested store owner, very narrow window of interest

I'll be on another tour the next time Im back!

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.

We enjoyed the tour very much, the guide Cindy, was very well informed and told us a lot about the neighbourhood and New York. The atmosphere in the group was very good and because we were not that many we got to know each other (thanks to Cindy:-)

We got a list of restaurants and tried two during our stay, they were excellent the food delicious and the price very reasonable. (Little Havana and Home)

Next time we visit New York we will take another tour to get to know the city the best way. Thank you.

Perfect tour for a stormy New York afternoon. Sam made the tour both entertaining and informative. He was quick enough to make it possible for us to see all vendors without feeling rushed. His knowledge of the building's history as well as the products being offered by the current tenants was impressive. All the vendors made us want to come back when we had more time to shop at a leisurely pace.

I would recommend the tour and Sam to others without any reservation. In addition, my wife and I are investigating the Greenwich Village tour for a subsequent visit to NY with friends.

Do this tour! It is one of the best things we have done on our visit to Manhattan. Our guide was Michael and he was entertaining, knowledgeable and witty. Don't miss it - you will have a fantastic time visiting all the hidden treasures of Greenwich village with a guide who is passionate about the area. The food we sampled was delicious and we would highly recommend the tour. Just do it!

Thanks Food Tours and Curt! This was a fun thing to do for us food enthousiasts.

If you are visiting New York, do this in the beginning of your trip, because you'll get good tips about restaurants, when to go, and what to taste. Not only from your quide but also from other participants.

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!!

Getting to know the neighborhood!

Mike was the perfect leader for our tour - energetic, witty, creative and with a real passion for the neighborhood and it's history. The Village is a part of the City we always wanted to know more about and now we have a great foundation to start exploring on our own. Thank you for creating a business which combines two of our favorite activities - walking through New York City neighborhoods and eating!

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.

We had a wonderful tour guide and nice weather. Amy, our guide, has a very pleasant personality and she had a good base of knowledge about the Village, food, restaurants, shops, and history.

We plan to come back and do the tour again with our children.
