Great Tour - would like more Food History

Our tour of the Village and Soho was great. We did want more food history about the origination of the different ethnic groups in the area however. We liked the tidbits about pop culture and famous people but we felt that the tour promoted food and that's what we wanted to learn about. Our tour guide was okay - we felt she repeated rehearsed lines. All this being said, it was a fun 3 hours. We would do this again and recommend but we also look forward to another perspective. The drinks at our sit down tasting were a bit pricey for lunch.

Nice choice of restaurants to sample; learned facts about the Village that my daughter (who has lived in NYC for almost 10 years didn't know.

We had a wonderful time walking around the village and Soho and learned so much about the architecture, the restuarants and the food. The tour guide was personable, knowledgable and kept things moving at a terrific pace. The sample foods were delicious and the overall experience was one we would recommend highly to friends and family. Thank you for a great time.

Whether you are are a "foodie" or not, this tour should please. Our tour guide Susan gave us a broad introduction to the history of Greenwich Village, it's past and present role in NYC. Tastings were very good, diverse and nicely presented. Loved learning to shop likce a local.
