Outstanding

The three hours were filled with foodie facts, factoids, and remarkable gastronomic insights along with 400 years of Greenwich Village history, off Broadway theater, and current real estate prices. Our group was great. Almost everyone had questions, interacted with each other, and appreciated the food. For me, it’s the little things that always make a difference. Like the truffle salt with honey, the peach nectar with the prosecco, the shaved asiago on the artichoke, the Monterey Jack cheese in the mac & cheese. Tying it all together was our energetic and enthusiastic tour guide who never missed a beat and Sephrah gets four stars from me.

Left Early

We took two other tours that were great. This one seemed to be a commercial for many restaurants that we didn't eat at and we were taken to many locations, given a talking to, and then redirected without any purpose other than to looks at buildings (I guess). We left early and had a slice at Joe's Pizza.

Friends told me about these tours and how much they enjoyed them. They were right on! Our guide Burt was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend these tours and look forward to taking another one.

I new the tour would be great but it was even better than expected. My only worry was the portions would to small for my boyfriend and I but I was wrong we were fine until much later. We learned a lot and found some really cool places to explore later that we may have never noticed. I was very pleased with not only the food but also the details and history our very nice guide provided us.

My sister and I went with our 3 nephews, aged 19,19,and 17 and we all loved it. Plenty of food and our guide, Burt was perfect. Very accommodating and knowledgeable. We are planning on taking another one next year.

Tour guide ( Burt ) extremely knowledgeable re history of the area and the restaurants. Wide variety of establishments visited and the quality of the food was first class. It wet our appetite and we returned again and again to the Greenwich Village area.

Tasty Food & Informative Guide

We took the Greenwich Village tour - food was extremely tasty and our guide was sharp - we ate well and walked away feeling like we knew something about the neighborhood as well as why the food tasted good. We had a bit of a logistical snag (our fault) and working through that was a snap as well.

What to do in New York on a Monday

Our guide, Cindy, was a fantastic ambassador for New York City and the foods and culture of Greenwich Village. She combined history, culture, architecture, and great appreciation for the challenges (and expense) of living on an island all the while being considerate of the residents and shopkeepers as we squeezed into narrow sidewalks and small shops. She kept us entertained and attentive to details both significant and arcane. Great experience!
