Don;t take this tour.
Mon, Apr 14  12:00 PM vondohren Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
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
Fri, Apr 11  12:00 PM Kkwall Female 50-59 Combination Other
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!

Great afternoon - even in the rain!

We had a wonderful time despite heavy rain throughout the afternoon. But, if you are going on the tour during poor weather, be sure to dress for "outside tastings". Fortunately, we had rain gear on and so enjoyed the afternoon tremendously.

Great food and lots of inside scoop from a local.

This is my fourth Foods of NY Tour and I was again very happy to have spent my afternoon eating a variety of unique and delicious goodies and learning all about the area from a pro. Susan, our tour guide knew everything there was to know about The Village having lived there most of her life. These tours are great and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Great way to learn about an area
Mon, Mar 24  12:00 PM kperkins Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking

50th Birthday Celebration
Sat, Mar 22  12:30 PM mlorenz Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
There were 8 of us together from the Northeast area, celebrating our 50th birthdays. We had a wonderful time - our guide Susan was awesome and the other members of our group were really fun. We loved learning details about the Greenwich Village area - and absolutely loved all the food! Every piece of the tour was well thought out, and it flowed so nicely together. We were stuffed at the end !! It was the perfect start to our birthday celebration in NYC!

Awesome tour & great food!

Over the past year we have taken 3 of the Foods of NY tours booked through Zerve and plan to take others on next visit to NYC. Central Greenwich was very different from the Original Greenwich which we took a year ago. As described, there were no overlaps. Tour guide was very knowledgeable of the neighborhood and interesting. There were numerous tastings and they were very generous and delicious!

Informative, Enjoyable Tour
Mon, Mar 17  12:00 PM Ronyart13 Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our guide was an exceptional and knowledgeable local. She was really engaging, providing interesting and informative information as we progressed on the tour. She was happy to answer any and all questions. We really enjoyed the tour, that brought the history and culture to life. The food tasting was excellent and varied, with some options of alcohol to ease things along.

Wonderful Tour
Sat, Mar 15  12:30 PM trishgoddard Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This tour was so much fun. I loved the information our guide, Susan Volchok, provided about the area. The food was totally delicious at all locations. My favorites were the pizza, the chocolate tart and the pasta, however, I loved everything. My husband and my 19 year old son also enjoyed it. Would definitely sign up for another tour!
