We enjoyed 6 or 7 tastings, and all were mouth watering delicious!! It was a fantastic experience thanks to Rahim, the tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable about the restaurants, the history of the area etc. His enthusiasm was contagious! Highly recommend it!!!

This is our second Tasting Tour and it was every bit as good (maybe even better) than the first we did 2 years ago. The guides are so knowledgeable and the food is so good. What more could you ask for; you get to walk, see the sites, sit down and eat, and learn alot about the area all at the same time! Cindy our guide had the right mix of entertainment and interesting historical facts, she is a gem! I whole-heartedly recommend this tour.

Our host was informative and friendly. The stories that he told felt personal which made him quite approachable. He encouraged questions would explain to us in a very friendly manner. At the end of the tour I felt that I was eating with old friends that I have known for a little while.

Awesome Village Experience

We were on the 1:00 pm Greenwich Village Food Tour this past Saturday, July 20, and it was an amazing experience it was from beginning to end.

The food that we sampled was fantastic; from the pizza, to the rice balls, to the super sized chocolate chip cookies, everything was delicious!

Ted, our host/leader, was fantastic; he is knowledgeable about the area, passionate about the village and it's charms, engaging, entertaining and fun.

It was very hot, and he was careful to ensure that we were not standing in the blazing sun for any length of time, he really took good care of us.

The three of us are regular visitors to New York City and have been coming for a long time, and we all agree that your tour is one of the best things we have ever done. We will certainly be back to try another neighbourhood tour the next time we are in NY.

Thanks to Ted and Foods of NY for making our Saturday so much fun!!

It was hot as hell but it was still great. The leader kept us hydrated, in cool places when he could, was very informative about the neighborhood etc. I would tell everyone even New Yorkers to take the time to tour.

Not really impressed

I was very disappointed by 2 things (1) the pizza at Joe's was not even a full slice. We received 1/2 slice. One pizza was cut into 16 pieces. Our guide was wonderful. She told us how to fold the pizza and eat it but ours was not wide enough to do that. Bummer. (2) Had I known we would be standing at the corner of streets or outside the restaurants I never would have signed up for the tour. You just don't get a true feeling of the venue if you can't go outside. I will give our tour guide 2 thumbs up. She was very knowledgable and friendly. I would not take another tour. Eating on the side of the road it not my idea of fun.

Chelsea Market tour

I enjoyed the tour - but if you have problems walking this tour may not be for you. The food was very delicious and made you want to try more items.

Make sure to bring a lot of water for even though it is provided more may be needed depending on time of year that you go.

Also may want to bring a bag w/you if you plan on purchasing any items.

A Foodie Must!

What a great tour!!! The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Each location seemed happy to see us and the food was outstanding. They even served a disk made with califlower (which I hate) but the disk was so good that I took a second helping. This is something that I would definitely do again (this tour as well as I as their others). While this was one of the hottest days during the summer heat wave the guide kept us in the shade while we were outdoors. This company gets 5 stars from me.

My husband and I went on the tour on Sat., 7/13/13. Sephrah was our guide. She was absolutely hysterical. She made the tour so enjoyable. The food was outrageous from the cheese pie to the cannoli, we loved it all. Never knew how wonderful Greenwich Village really was and I come from Brooklyn!!!! The historical section was just beautiful and the stories she told were very interesting. I would love to do it again, this time with all my adult children. Thanks for a great day in the city.
