The leader Bert was amazing--very knowlegeable and funny! The food was awesome, lots of interesting trivia, loved the stuff about the architecture and buildings we were looking at and even had a celebrity sighting on our tour! Would definitely recommend, already plan on doing some of the other tours offered and we've told our friends about it! They were very accommodating (I'm a vegetarian) and everything on the tour was timed perfectly--not too long, not too short--just right amount of time to get it all in! They thought about bathroom breaks, every detail was well planned out. Took my husband who is a foodie for his birthday and he LOVED it!

Our tour guide (Karrie Ann, I believe) was wonderful. So knowledgeable but how she presented everything was what made her stand out. It was so conversational. You didn't feel like you were on a tour. Instead I felt like I was spending an afternoon with a friend who brought me around this wonderfully historic part of town and while walking along, taught me little known facts that were interesting and made the neighborhoods come alive. I feel like I truly know the area and I want to bring others the next time we're in NYC to do this tour as well. I think it was great, not at all intimidating but quite the opposite as I felt I was walking along with a friend (or group of friends).

Bert was wonderful at explaining the village! so many things you would never know about the neighborhood if you just walked around it. he said many times how much he enjoys his job and it shows. He was so nice and the different food was fun to try.

Our tour guide was just wonderful (CarryAnn?), full of great stories and her enthusiasim was contagious. I knew the tour would have some great food tastings but it was much more then that. Thoroughly enjoyable and the food was excellent. We will be doing all of the tours in the near future!

Great time...very interesting walk through Greenich Village. Great tour guide. I enjoyed being in a "neighbourhood" versus the big city. Would definately do another tour on my next trip.
