Exceeded our expectations

We did not know what to expect on this food tour - having done nothing like it before .... we went into it with some trepidation. But the whole tour, the information, the style, the enthusiasm (to name but a few) made it a great experience. We had been to NYC before but, now feel like we really know a small corner in a hell of a lot of detail and can recommend to our British friends who come to visit your city. Great Stuff!!

Great tour guide, great food, great experience

It would not be an exaggeration to say that the food tour of Greenwich Village has been a highlight of our New York holiday. We were welcomed by our guide, Sephra, who possessed a great sense of humor, a clear gift for communication and some real and interesting information. (Our experience tells us not all guides in NY have these attributes.)

Our group included a number of other Australians which contributed to a light hearted and fun tour. The food was a delight, highlighted in my opinion with the wine bar at Centro Vinoteca and the starting pizza at Joe's. However there was not a weak moment on the tour and we enjoyed Milk and Cookies, Murray's and O & Co as well as all other stops. The food was delicious and of sufficient variety to keep the interest levels up. There was also plenty of it.

The tour also included other interesting sites and buildings; my 18 year old was thrilled to see the 'Friends' house.

Thank you Food Tous. This tour was much anticipated by us and you did not disappoint. I returned to Greenwich Village the following day and spent some time walking and visiting various stores.

We highly recommend this tour. We just hope you have the pleasure of being hosted by Sephra or someone with a similar gift.

Enthusiastic tour guide

I enjoyed the tour and I appreciated our guide's knowledge of the Chelsea market area and of food preparation and sales. The only comment that I would make is that the food samples given to the group were extremely fatty and not very healthy. The last item, which involved oxtails in an Italian dish, was not very popular as many people did not want to eat oxtails.

The food tours are fantastic!

I have been on 2 other of your food tours. They all have been great, and I have recommended them to a lot of people. I did not like the food on this one as much as the others. I definitely don't think you should serve the cupcake first. I also want to say that Curt was fantastic!

I will probably be doing the Chinatown one next!

Thanks for offering such a fun experience.

The tour not only gives you a great food tasting experience , it also gives you an insight into the architecture and history of different NYC neighborhoods. Our guide was terrific and really knew her stuff!

This was my second tour and I can't wait to do the rest. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this activity to anyone visiting NY and also locals. Can't wait to come back!

GREAT VALUE

Robin, our guide, was highly knowledgeable, articulate, funny, and entertaining. All food stops were excellent and much better (with larger portions) than expected. Not a lot of walking is involved, and all stops are close to the meeting point. A perfect way to spend three hours and to discover some great eating places and shops.

A special thanks to Robin.

Bill, Denise, Krista and Johanne.

I great way to spend an afternoon in New York

As a baby boomer, my memories of Greenwich Village were of smokey coffee houses with great music and poetry. Now fourty years later, I enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the neighborhoods history, architecture, and great restraunts. The coffee houses, great music and poetry are still there, but now we get to enjoy so much more. Great tour!

OUR TOUR GUIDE, CURT OR KURT OR? WAS ONE OF THE BEST GUIDES WE

HAVE HAD. IN THE PAST 2 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN ON SEVERAL TOURS AND HIS

KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT WAS AS GOOD OR BETTER THAT ANY TOUR WE HAVE BEEN ON. (BUS TOURS, WALKI NG TOURS, GUIDED TOURS) iF HE WILL BE THE GUIDE, WE WILL COME BACK FOR MORE.

MAYBE A FOOD NETWORK TOUR.

Awesome Tour Delicious and fun!

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Greenwich Village. Our tour guide, Kirk, made the tour lots of fun with his enthusiasm and his accute knowledge of all the little "secret spots". The food tastings were awesomely good and the samples were more then adequate' as most of us were busting by the end of the tour wondering if we could eat another thing!

While I had been in Greenwich Village many times before this was like seeing it for the first time.

Don't miss this tour, and definately see if Kirk can be your guide. He is as much fun as the tour with his humourous comments and quips.

I thought Chelsea Market was a most interesting development. Our guide brought out much of the history of the area. I found that most interesting. Oh yea, the samples were good, too.

First Class!

After taking the Greenwich Village Food Tour last year we weren't sure we could top it, however, the Chelsea Mkt. Tour this year was just as fabulous! We had an amazing

three hours of touring, food tasting, sightseeing, history lessons, etc. and we loved it.

Kurt, our guide, was delightful!! We would recommend the NYC Food Tours to

everyone -- can't wait to try the future SoHo tour on our next visit!!

Mother from Miami, Grown son who lives in the village took this tour on a rather cold day. Guide, has lived in Village for many years and was very knowledgeable entertaining,a d kept out interest in the bitter cold for 3 hours. Well worth the time and the cost. Believe this is an adult activity, not for young children. Should be on list of what to do when in NYC. Will definately do another area when in NYC again.
