Food and tour guide were great!

I went on the Chelsea Market tour a couple of years, but liked this one better. The tour guide provided a lot of great information about the food, history and culture of Greenwich Village. It was a great mix of food and it was all delicious!

Our tour guide was wonderful and I can't remember his name but this is the second tour I've taken with him. He is knowledgeable and gave us a terrific time.

just what we were looking for

we were looking for a bit of insight into the Greenwich area and we like food and drink so it fit the bill. i will say that i thought a couple of the restaurants were maybe a bit tired of hosting the tasting??! also liked that we went to a couple places that we didnt taste but learned about the business none the less.

Second time around

I had taken this tour a few years ago with family. A group of my friends wanted to experience NYC so I suggested this tour because it is loaded with spicy history and wonderful food. We were not disappointd. There was a lot of food, so much that we skimped on dinner. And the history is juicy too.

The best way to explore NYC neighborhoods!

We three old friends from elementary school days came for our second annual long weekend in NYC. Last year we took the Chelsea Market tour and loved it. Can't remember our tour guide's name but she was amazing - her humor and in depth knowledge of the history of the area kept us entertained the whole time. This year we chose the Central Greenwich Village tour and our tour guide was Raheem. He was so much fun and a really nice guy. He also had a very comprehensive knowledge about the area - some really obscure but very interesting facts that you'd never get out of a guide book. Thanks, Raheem! The food was delicious. We were completely full by the second last stop (didn't stop us from sampling it though) and the variety and quality of the tastings were just right. Honestly, it's by far the best way to tour a neighborhood. We'll be back for sure!

We can't wait to do it again!

Our tour guide was Rahim and we just loved him! He was very informative about the area, history, etc. He knows his restaurants and made the three hours just fly by! We brought some friends with us and they can't wait to do it again. I highly recommend to everyone as it helps you get familiar with the area and what restaurants you would like to try when you go back. I wouldn't have tried some of the restaurants if I hadn't been on the food tour! Five stars to this tour!!!

My sister & I had a great time! Even though we are NYer's we sampled some amazing food and drinks from restaurants we had never been before. I definitely would recommend the food and culture tour and will myself be back for other tours.

Good tour
Fri, Apr 25  12:00 PM Connie550 Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
This was my third food tour with this company. As always, the guide was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was plentiful and with a few exceptions, overall, tasty. That being said, I must admit that this tour did not seem as enjoyable as the first two. For this one, I felt that we ate too much on the street without really feeling the experience of each restaurant by going in and sitting down as much as the other two tours offered. Regardless, this is still a great way to introduce out of town guests to a sampling of what New York has to offer.
