“Fun, food, history, and great value for a 3-plus hour tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

This up close and personal tour of a neighborhood, its history and people, with the added bonus of great and varied food tastings was a treat all around. There seem to be similarly named tours, and made sure I was reviewing the correct one here-- Foods of NY tours, The $52 Original Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour " flavorsof the old Italian section of the West Village. our 13-person walking tour went by in a flash, and even went a bit over the three hour listed time. We sampled pizza from a tried and true family run iconic location, learned about the required type of tomato for the sauce, sampled olive oils and balsamic vinegars and got a lesson on authentic origins of same. the neighborhood cheese shop was fun, tasty, and a stacked cheese photo op. We learned about architecture, brick stacking and Italian food while trekking through the neighborhood, and snacking on freshly baked cookies and cannolis. Two sit-down restaurant locations juxtaposed old school meatballs with a trendy eatery that is featured on food networks. Was really the best $$ we spent in NYC and a value too. Would recommend going on multiple tours at the start of a stay due to the extremely valuable advice on where to visit, where to eat, with inside tips on how to do it!

“FANTASTIC FOOD TOUR - A MUST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

What a great experience! I am a foodie and have been to New York many times before. I wanted to do something different this time so opted for the Greenwich village food tour. Wow! Not only an informative tour but the food was fantastic! A 3 hour tour just flew by helped by the fantastic guide Cindy who was humourus, engaging and interesting. It shows another side to New York. Try it!!

“Favorite part of my trip to NYC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

I recently visited NYC for a girl's weekend with my sister and two friends. Because we usually take trips to larger cities we try to go on some sort of walking food tour and have never been disappointed. I must say, however, that our tour through a quaint neighborhood in Nolita was by far the best tour I've experienced. We met with our FABULOUS tour guide, Annie at a little cupcake shop and proceeded to be amazed at not only her warm and sweet personality, but her knowledge of the history of the area and incredible relationships with the restaurant owners and staff. We were treated to everything from Roman pizza (which was made right in front of us) to wine, Mexican Street Food, French tartine and much more. We visited other historical places that Annie thought we would be interested in and we were. And at the end of the three hour tour, she treated us to a very memorable surprise ( I won't spoil it for you). HIGHLY recommended at a cost of $52 per person it is very inexpensive. You will be so thrilled to have been a part of all of the history, food and in of this tour!

“Great family fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

My husband and I recently met our adult daughter in New York City for a family celebration. A friend recommended we try one of these tours because the three of us enjoy all things "foodie". The price was reasonable (about $50) so we ordered tickets online in advance for the Original Greenwich Village tour. It turned out to be a much better way to locate excellent restaurants and shops for the rest of our visit than standard guidebooks and advertising and all the food we sampled was truly first rate. We enjoyed the insider information our group leader shared with us regarding the history, architecture and residents of the neighborhood, and felt we really knew our way around after the three hour experience. There certainly is no shortage of entertainment in NYC, so deciding where to get the most for your tourist dollars can be pretty daunting - but this tour was a high point in our trip and was definitely worth it!
