First time on a food tour
Thu, Jun 12, 14   11:45 AM Kazue123 Female 60-69 Unspecified Unspecified
This was my first visit to NYC and my first walking food tour. What a fabulous way to learn about the neighborhood (Nolita and NoHo). I went solo because my husband was at a conference, but after he was done for the weekend I took him through the tour and enjoyed it all over again. Bert was so great explaining the history and describing the food - he really enjoys his work!! And food!! We went to places that I probably would not have - like the Little Cupcake Bakeshop on Prince but I returned to get a generous slice of the Brooklyn Blackout Cake. At Tacombi the group enjoyed esquites (roasted corn with a sauce) and I returned to get the fish tacos and watch a world cup game - that was fun. I enthusiastically recommend this tour.

Chelsea Market & Highline

Great tour. Met Darrell, our tour leader, and 16 others in the Chelsea Market on a Sunday afternoon. Within five minutes Darrell knew our names and proved to be an enthusiastic and knowledgeable leader. The first eight or so stops were all within a block of the former Nabisco Company. Easy walking. Darrell gave us an historical background of the area and the Nabisco company. We had a little time to shop, maybe 5-8 minutes before we walked over to the Highline. Again Darrell provided us with the history behind this beautiful elevated park. We finished our 3 hr tour with a tasting in the Meat Packing District. The samples were all yummy and plentiful. Great Way to quickly see the Market, Highline and Meat-Packing District.

Best eating tour yet.

My friend and I have taken 2 other eating tours with Foods of NY before but I think this one was the best so far. The portions were sizable and satisfying. The food tasted amazing( especially the Peking Duck) and our guide Bert was full of historical and gastronomical facts. He clearly loves food and NY. Great day.

Tour directors were excellent but it seemed like an additional stop or two could have been easily included. More in Noho would have been nice.

Bert was simply amazing! He was so kind, energetic and you can tell he has a passion for what he does. The tour was so enjoyable. We loved each and every shop & restaurant that we made a stop at. We were even running late & he took us to tha places we missed afterwards. He was knowledgable of the villiage and provided us with fun facts along the way. We will for sure be back!!

Fantastic once again!

So great is this tour that I continue to bring friends and overseas visitors back again and again. Not only are the food tastings delicious but the cultural aspect is undeniably informative. Robyn was a delightful tour guide and made the experience all the better. I am a New Yorker but had lived in Sydney, Australia for 12 years and I was lucky enough this tour to be paired with about 10 other Australians which made it all the better...Thank you Foods of New York for another great experience.

The perfect way to discover Greenwich Village
Sat, May 31, 14   11:00 AM nksharr Female 60-69 Unspecified Unspecified
We've gone down to the Village before, but never knew what to do or where to eat. This tour was perfect! Food and history and a walk around the neighborhood. If you're lucky enough to have Sephrah as your guide, you feel like you're going around to visit with friends of a friend. We plan to do a different Foods of New York tour every year when we go up to NYC. It is the perfect way to spend a late spring morning. I can't wait to go back and re-visit some of these restaurants, too.( you get coupons!)

delicious food, great tour guide, learned so much
Sun, May 25, 14   12:30 PM marlenesiege Female 60-69 Local Unspecified
Being the only original New Yorkers on the tour, my daughter and I still learned so much from Ted. He made the entire 3 hours so much fun, and we both learned alot more about the Village, even with our knowledge of historic preservation.

Food was fabulous, and every place we stopped, we were given such warm welcomes. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits or just those who want to spend a wonderful 3 hours learning about the history of Greenwich Village- we loved every minute of it.

Than you Ted for seeing to every detail beforehand.

Best food tour and guide in NYC

I can't not recommend this tour enough! Our guide, BERT, was amazingly organized, funny, and informative. We have taken several tours in NYC, and this has been our most memorable one yet. Bert was so easy to talk to and also walked us through the crowded streets of Greenwich Village in such an organized way - he even stopped traffic for us: "I'll block the cars, you just watch for the bikes," as he said. Bert obviously had a good rapport with the restaurant staff, since they were thrilled to see him and welcomed us every time. I would recommend this tour to ANYONE visiting or living in NYC! In fact, we will probably take it again when we return - as long as we can have Bert as our tour guide!

Our guide Burt was very knowledgeable not only about our tour stops but also about Greenwich Village architecture and history. He was very informative and had a great sense of humor, we would highly recommend this tour for others.

The NOHO food tour was definitely a highlight of my daughter's and my 1st time to NYC! We sampled amazing food and what made it especially enjoyable was our fabulous guide, Annie! Her passion for food and the history of New York made this tour so memorable. She is a gem and I would certainly recommend this tour to any foodie travelling to NYC! Next time we visit, we will definitely be booking a couple more food tours with this company!!!
