The tour was so great. We truly enjoyed seeing the village through the eyes of a local. Our tour guide was great. He really knew the area, the food, and the history. This tour was worth every penny, and we went on a very hot day in August. We returned to the area after the tour to eat and buy some things from shops. It really enhanced our trip to New York by showing us a part of the city in a way we would never have seen it otherwise.

Our guide, Raheem, was excellent. Fun, funny and knowledgeable. He kept us in the shade as much as possible since it was 90 degrees. Food was fantastic.

The tour was a good length, and the amount of time between tastings was perfect. Our tour guide, Susan, was wonderful. She was very friendly and informative, and gave us a very good feel for the area. And the food was excellent!!

We were a group of two local moms and our sons (ages 12 and 15) and a nephew from Chicago (age 15). It was so much fun. We learned about the history of the Village, some about the architecture, some about the cultural influences, and sampled lots of food, in very generous portions, from great places representing many cuisines. Our guide, Susan, was lovely and very enthusiastic. We all had a great time.

Excellent second time out with Food Tours

This was our second tour. We did the Greenwich Village tour last summer. Enjoyed this tour even more than the first. Quantity and variety of food was good and interesting. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. We took the tour with an adult son and I probably would not recommend for small children. Other than that, a fine way to see the village.

Definitely the highlight of our NYC trip

As if the food wasn't wonderful enough, the guide reveled us with historical and social details as we made our way through the area: Bob Dylan's former house, the denizens of Washington Square Park, the prices of townhouses on the market, the private Italian club with a shooting range in the basement. We had a wonderful time and the food (and mojito) was fabulous!

Central Village tour was outstanding

We recently took the central Greenwich Village food tour and loved it. The tour guide was fantastic- he gave us a wonderful history of the area, individual buildings, and fun facts about past and current owners of a unique assortment of establishments. We took in the flavor of this slice of NYC figuratively and literally . The food samples were varied and generous, and the venues were all unique. We did the original Greenwich Village tour 2 years ago and loved being back to experience this one- looking forward to doing the rest!!!!
