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!

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

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 !

Had a Great Time
Tue, Jun 3, 14   12:00 PM zausom Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and made the whole experience very interesting and fun. All the food vendors were experts as well, and we learned a lot about lots of things. We did go back the next day and couldn't find a restaurant we were looking for because we couldn't remember the name; would be helpful to have a list specific to the tour one takes for reference. (Unless there was one and we missed it.) Not a huge deal--we still had a wonderful time--my family thought it was the best thing we did while in NYC!

Daryl/amazing! Food/fantasticl Felt like a local!
Sun, Apr 12  10:00 AM ZANIKC Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I can't say enough great things about Daryl! He really made the tour for me and our group. Kept us moving but didn't feel rushed. Super knowledgeable about just about everything fun and interesting in the surrounding areas. Didn't stop laughing the entire time. Just awesome. I will def. be back and have already told all my friends about it. I live in Baltimore, so we are all just a short train ride away...Oh, not to mention that it was a food tour and the food was amazing and you really get FOOD, not just tiny bite-sized morsels that leave you starving at the end. We were all stuffed and loved every bit. Thank you!

Even Better Than Expected!

My sister-in-law and I just took the West Village tour. It was beyond expectation! We were prepared for great food, but were pleasantly surprised by the educational aspect of the tour. Interesting historical and cultural tidbits were a highlight.

We can't wait to come back to NYC and take another tour. Our goal is to do all of them, and we wish there were more offered in other parts of the city.

Thanks for a wonderful experience.

I've heard a lot about the food walking tours so I expected to have a good time but this is indescribable. My husband and I had a wonderful time! The food was amazing and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We had such a good time that we actually went back to the area the following night with my cousins to go bar hopping and stopped at Joe's pizza (one of the stops on the food walking tour) for a late night bite. I definitely recommend this experience to all!
