Interesting blend of history of the area and great food tastings of the different ethic groups who are living here. Our guide was knowlegeable, friendly and made accomodations for the different walking speeds of the group. A great way to be introduced to a neighborhood in NYC!

Well WORTH it.....

Diana, the tour guide, is a NYC resource on a variety if subjects far exceeding just the tour we were on. The food is great and divergent in taste. The area of Greenwich Village is very interesting and we learned a lot about famous folks that started out there. People in the neighborhood , beknownst to the tour guide participated as well. A unique well-rounded experience not to be missed. We will be doing this again.

Don;t take this tour.

Tour guide spent a great deal of time discussing her experiences in Greenwich village as a young girl. I did not pay $156 to hear that. I wanted to see important places, find out who lived(s) where, what goes on or went on in these places, and sample food other than all carbohydrates. The China Town tour if by far more interesting and certainly more flavorful. I felt that the tour guide was getting a kick back on alcoholic drinks sold at various venues we stopped at. Not your best tour.

Delectable Morsels of Food and Insider Information

The Central Greenwich Village Food Tour was recommended by friends, and we're so glad we took their advice! Want to sample a true slow cooked Italian pasta and gravy? Love foods from India and Cuba? Always searching for that perfect NY slice? Enjoy insider information about where noted celebrities lived during their "days in the Village?" If so, you will truly relish this tour. Susan, our guide was extraordinarily knowledgeable and kept the group (around 16 total, I think) moving at an enjoyable pace. We sampled food from at least six diverse eateries while Susan filled us in on the history of the restaurants and interesting information about the surrounding neighborhood. Our new goal is to eat a full dinner at each of the restaurants on the tour!

A friend, My sister & I were amazed ! We have discovered tastes that all of us liked; at the same time, we were discovering this part of the town. The day after we were back at Greenwich village for another taste :) We have appreciated our guide Susanna and, Ooh Susanna, thanks a lot for the surprize on my birthday ! Of course, Washington Square was on Rendez-vous ! Highly recommended !!! Patricia

The quiet part of Manhatttan

Who knew that these hidden gems of streets existed in the middle of manhattan. Enjoyed this tour , not just for the great food, in particular Artichoke Pizza, but for the discovery of the lovely quiet streets that take you back to a much quieter time in this big bustling city. Beautiful buildings, and streets. Recommend this tour for folks who enjoy lovely architecure as well as great food.

Great tour! Our guide Susan was knowledgable and friendly. We ate lots of delicious food from a large variety of ethnic groups. We will definitely try to do another neighborhood with this company next trip to the city.

FUN WAY TO SPEND THE AFTERNOON

The Central Greenwich Village tour was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. My husband and I were in NY as tourists with our son and daughter-in-law who live locally. All four of us had a lot of fun and would do another tour with this company. Our guide was very friendly and funny, and we enjoyed the food tastings. I've done the original Greenwich Village tour and liked this one just as well if not more so.
