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

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!

This tour was recommended from a colleague. Rahim our tour guide for the day was great, friendly, respectful, helpful and full a local knowledge. The tour was very well paced, LOTS of food (please do not eat before you attend this tour), well organized and easy to find.

Go on this tour to impress your date...
Sun, Nov 12, 06   12:00 PM zacharyz Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
I was hesitant about going on a tour particularly because I spend two-thirds of my life working in the city. Nonetheless, it was well worth it!

My wife and I were tired of the mundane outings, so we decided to take our friends advice and give it a try. Forget about all those preconceived notions about "tours."

This is far more than just a tour! It will change your whole view of Manhanttan

Fantastic Fun Time

This tour was one of the highlights of our 5 day stay in NYC. It was so much fun and our tour guide, Sephrah was so informative AND entertaining. I just wished I could have had her show me the rest of NYC as she was that funny and entertaining! It was never a dull moment! Even though we probably only traveled a few blocks the tour covered a world of food. We definitely did not need to eat a meal afterwards. I also loved the variety of shops and food that the tour covered. All of the food tastings were delicious! And last but not least, I loved the discussion of Greenwich Village and its history & architecture that Sephrah presented. I cannot recommend this tour enough!! My next NYC visit will definitely include another tour by Foods of NY tours. Loved it!!
