This was our second "Foods of NY Tour" and it truly equaled if not exceeded the first (Chelsea Mkt) one we took do to our guide, Sephrah....Hope the tour doesn't lose her to the stage, she is hysterical and well as very knowledgable of the Greenwich Village area....who knew why there are glass blocks in the sidewalk or the width of the smallest house and who lived there in past??
The culinary experience was fantastic....great stops but I had to come home to diet after the tour...I am not a tour person but HIGHLY recommend this to anyone, the time flew by..I can't wait to come back and try another one, the highlight of our trip.

Hi there, quartertyme, from Foods of NY Tours! We New Yorkers are wishing for your nice Florida weather today.

Thank you for rating our Original Greenwich Village & Chelsea Market / Meatpacking District tours as the BEST in NYC! Sephrah is definitely a great performer and could take her show on the road to spread the laughs across the country. We feel lucky to have her leading tours! And we are pleased you found the culinary experience fantastic as well! We at Foods of NY Tours are constantly working on new ways to make our tours more fun, more delicious, and more interesting so that everyone has a great time. Thanks for your high recommendation. We agree our tours are a highlight of the New York experience, even for people who think a food tour is not for them. Enjoy that Florida sun!

We had a fantastic time! This was one of the highlights of our trip. The tour guide was very knowledgable and passionate about his work. It was family friendly as we had three kids in-toe. The choice of foods was great!

My family had great fun on the "Original Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour." We enjoyed samples of fine olive oils, Joe's Pizza, arancini, cookies, cannoli, and more on our 3+ hour tour, and we learned quite a bit about the history and architecture of the Village as well. Our guide was knowledgeable and personable, and I enjoyed seeing parts of the Village that I'd never seen before. I certainly have a much better feel for this part of NYC, and I look forward to returning so I can enjoy meals at some of the restaurants to which we were introduced (like Po, Palma, the Pearl Oyster Bar, and Le Gigot, all on Cornelia St.) Well worth it!

I did this tour with my teenage son a few days before Christmas. We had a great time being introduced to multiple eateries in Greenwich Village. Well spaced out, and informative. Food delicious, and one of the highlights of our trip to New York. Highly recommend this tour.
