A friend recommended the Foods of New York to me, saying that everyone who'd been so far raved about it. Well, after experiencing the tour I totally loved it, the tour had a great balance between food tastings, history of the neighborhoods, as well as interesting facts like the cost of living and famous personalities that had lived in the area.

The whole day was excellent, and our guide was very knowledgeable, attentive and helpful. The selection of businesses that the food tasting were held at we're also great. It was really good to get an insight into local businesses and taste the delicious produce on offer. 

We liked it so much we spent the remainder of the day going into different shops/cafes around the village, as well as returning later to see some live music at a venue recommended by our guide. It was excellent and I'd highly recommend it to anyone whether your interest is in history, food, property, trivia or for those who want a more authentic/intimate insight into NYC. It was great value!

We really enjoyed our tour. Although I actually know the area fairly well, the tour still took us to several enjoyable spots where we had never been. The food was excellent overall. Our guide (Barri) was great. She was very knowledgeable on the local area, was able to offer unique snippets of local history that none of us knew, and poined our some other nice places for us to come back and check out. We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend the tour!

3 of us took the Foods of NY tours-Greenwich Village-last week with Curt. You must take this tour and ask for Curt! He was great. Entertaining, amusing-and what a memory. He remembered all 9 of our names and where we were from! It was very cold outside, so he made sure we did not stay out for long, ducked into some very neat little places in the VIllage, and gave us lots of info about the area. Lots of yummy foods to eat, comfort Mac n Cheese was so-o-o good. A great thing to do in any kind of weather.

The highlight of our trip. Bert was absolutely an angel and had the best stories and facts about the area. When I go back to NYC I will reserve a tour for every day we are there and I want Bert to be our guide. It was perfect.
