“Chelsea Market and Meat Packing District... perfection!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

I chose this tour for my husband and myself based on the fact that it had the most "regular" food (as he put it!...). We both LOVED walking around the Chelsea Market with out fabulous tour guide and hearing all about both the history of the building and the neighborhood. We dined on fantastic cupcakes and lobster bisque, and even ran into some of our favorite SNL writers. We stopped by the High Line Park and had the opportunity to see some truly breathtaking views of the city on a windy but clear day. Our last stop in the Meat Packing District was a delicious ox-tail pasta dish that even my picky husband raved about. A great tour for those who have been to NYC plenty of times or who are new to the city. I will for sure chose to go on another tour with this company on my next trip to the city!

“Greenwich village, all its history and Joe's pizzas? What more do you need?”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

Our guide Marie made everyone in the group so welcome. She was passionate about the people and the places we visited. And the food! We went to places we would never have visited, ate in local places we would have just walked straight past.
If you love a bit of history and trying out different foods from the age of 10 to a 100 this is a great tour. My only consulation was the amount of walking must have shifted the calzones and cookies!

“A NY Must Do!!!”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

This was one of the highlights of our 7 day trip to New York. I have done food tours before in different city's but this was just awesome.
The quality of the food served over the 3 hour tour was amazing, we did the Original Greenwich Village Tour.
The tour guide Barri was amazing and her knowledge of the history was spot on.
You were just comfy at the end, without being hungry.
If we had more time we would have done all of the other tours offered. I would not hesitate in recommending this group to do the tour.

“No better way to explore NYC”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

My wife & I went on our second Foods of NY tour. This time we did the West Village area of the city. It was another amazing time. Our guide this time was Marie and she was fabulous. We learned a lot of the history of the area and got to sample some of the best food from a variety of shops & restaurants. We also were able to visit some areas that we would never have been able to if we weren't on the tour. It's an amazing time offered at an amazing value. I can't recommend it highly enough.
