Food with scenery

The food tastes are soo delicious and amazingly light. I love the natural lighting in some of the places we visited making the tasting that much more inviting. I'm definitely going to revisit some of these places.

Entertaining, lively, informative and tasty. We've already tried 2 of the restaurants and many of the shops.

Had a great time on this tour. Learned about the area, loved the samples of food. Kurt, our guide, was fabulous. Wonderfully enthusiastic, knowledgeable, fun. The other people on the tour were friendly and warm. The weather was perfect. Looking forward to another tour before the weather gets too cold.

Nice balance of food, architecture and history!

Feel this was great value for money - and an insight into a tiny piece of New York - made me realise how long it would take to really get to know this city as we covered a miniscule part and there was so much to learn. Really liked our guide and the richness of her knowledge.

Great tour!

This was the second food tour we've done with our adult children but the first with this particular company. We really enjoyed this one because the tour guide (Marie) was extremely knowlegeable/informative not only about the food selections but also about the history of the area, buildings, etc.

Great time and definitely recommend!

Yummy stops

A cursory glance at the other reviews indicate that everybody loved whichever tour guide they got and couldn't imagine taking the tour with another one. I won't deviate from this formula: I took the Greenwich Village tour with Sephrah, and highly recommend her. She's super funny, knowledgeable, and convincingly local. (She's on most days for this tour at 11AM, FYI-- I think everyday except Thursday.) A lot of the time she got me to laugh with just the expression on her face, and she has the culinary school background to handle any questions you throw at her.

The tour was informative (granted, I knew most of the history and food trivia already, but I'm a massive dweeb.) and had just the right number of stops: nobody in my group was left hungry by the end of it, and many even had a cookie leftover for later. The selections were excellent. I had the best Mac and cheese I had ever had in my life, and I probably wouldn't have checked out most of the stops if not for this tour. The pacing was great, and even though it was a large group, still felt fairly personal. I'd recommend going on this tour towards the beginning of a trip to the city-- there will definitely be places you'll want to revisit later!

I am a part time resident, and this is one of the best things I have done in NYC.

Rj was great. Now I need to save some money to be able to buy real basalmic vinegar and I just threw out the olive oil in a plastic bottle. We'll be back.

Food was great. Our guide, Ceferia (sic) was informative as well as witty. We actually went back to Greenwich for brunch at Home Restaurant. Will do this again.

Fun evening
The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event
Thu, Sep 20, 07   5:00 PM zednewell Female 50-59 Local Individual
The young man leading us was very knowlegeable about Japanese food and customs. The food was delicious and so was the saki!

I would visit this particular restaurant again and possibly participant in another event in the future!

Thank you for a great night.

Non-touristy unique local insight
Sun, Apr 24, 05   11:30 AM zeddig Female 20-29 International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The tour guide, a local man, had excellent knowledge of the area and its history and was very familiar with the locals, who chatted to us openly and didn't treat us like a 'tour group'. The food tasting was excellent, and the guide ensured that everything we tried was very fresh and requested our feedback regularly. I was very full by the end of the tour. It was such a shame that we did this on our last day and didn't have a chance to try out any of the recommended restaurants (for which we received money-off vouchers and offers).

The only problem is that there can be a fair amount of standing about while listening to the stories and sampling the food items and this can be quite tiring (and straining on the back!)

I'm definately going to look out for something like this on every trip I take now.

Best thing I did in NYC ! Amazing, Cindy is fab
Sat, Apr 7, 12   1:00 PM Zebrakk1 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
8 girls, 1 action packed visit to NYC, and out of the 30 things I had planned (up rockafella, grand central etc etc etc) this was by far the best activity we did. Total bargain for the price, and the food and experience. You will not be disappointed. Really intersting without feeling like your on a school trip, loads of anecdotes and great great food. Cindy our guide was hillarious, knowledgeable and just so lovely. Coud not recommend this tour anymore. Book it !
