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!

I did not realise how much food is sampled on this tour which makes this quite worthwhile. I regretted eating breakfast as soon as I had the 1st tasting - a whole slice of Joe's pizza! The samples were all awesome and the lovely Curt was very entertaining and helpful in telling us what toilet stops were available. Definitely recommend.

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!

Amazing food intermingled with local knowledge

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).
