I have taken this tour before but loved Kurt's enthusiastic version. He remembered everyone's name and where they were from. Kurt was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting or living in NYC.

Our tour guide, Darrell, made the tour even more enjoyable. We were stuffed after the 6+ tastings, which were a nice variety. After the tour, we went back to some of the shops to make purchases with our coupons. We would highly recommend this tour to others and have done so.

The tour guide was the best

Sephra was a wonderful tour guide! It should be billed as a food tour with a good bit of comedy thrown in. I would take a tour with her again anytime, even one titled "Tour of the Most Boring Bedroom Communities of New Jersey".

In terms of the food sampled, it was uniformly delicious. I especially liked the inclusion of a restaurant called "Home". I would have a liked some more information on what criteria was used to pick these places - did the tour company send food tasters out and pick the best? Were they picked for their story/history? Or just places that cut the company a good deal?

Hit or Miss, least favorite tour so far

This is my third tour with Foods of NY, and it was my least favorite. The first two tastings were fantastic - the amazing Brooklyn Blackout Cupcake, the Roman-style prosciutto/argula/tomato pizza - huge slice, yum. Very good. The tartine - tiny portion, but good. Next, a cup of grilled corn with chipotle aioli. Ok, but after a few bites, it was just corn. A ho-hum tasting of fresh ricotta on whole grain bread, with nary an explanation of why we were at that particular restaurant, and why that ricotta was special. Then a stop that boggled my mind - we went into a salon started by a friend the guide knows. Haircuts 90-200$, seriously, why would we be interested in that? What did that have to do with food or culture? We soon found out - the guide showed us a beauty book written by the friend that has a photo of the guide! I didn't come to NYC to see a picture of the tour guide in a beauty book! I came to learn about food & history in a NY neighborhood. I was so turned off that I left the tour before the final tasting. It was cold, rainy, and I just didn't care anymore.

A must see in NYC

I have lived in New York all my life and it took 28 years and this tour to take me to Chelaea Market. It was a beautiful place to visit with lots to see and eat. It truly is a hidden gem in NYC. It's a great place to go on a rainy day and just walk around. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and had lots to tell us about each stop we made. The food we tried was great and made us want to go back for more, which we did as soon as the tour was over. The meatpacking district was also nice especially the highline. It is a great new addition to the city.

Our guide, Bert was a great ambassador for Greenwich Village. He is obviously a foodie and was very entertaining and knowledgeable. There was plenty of food, so much that we ate pretzels for dinner!

The tour was fantastic. We will tell all our family and friends to book one or more Food Tours when they are planning a trip to New York. Bert was fantastic. He gave us wonderful information about the special foods and about the history of the area. Thank You so much for a great tour.
