Good selection of food choices and a great coffee bean store! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts about the area. This is more than just walking around and tasting food. Definitely recommend this tour. Food samples were just the right amount to satisfy lunch.

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!

A great way to spend an afternoon

We had a great time. Susan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and also knew how to handle the crowd. We were 8 people out of the 16 on the tour celebrating my wife's birthday. We all enjoyed Susan's knowledge of the history as well as the food in the area. The food was delicious. My only criticism was in the sit down restaurants, they automatically added a 20% tip on the drinks and then left a line for an additional tip. This scam should not be part of the fabulous tour we had.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.
