We really enjoyed the tour even though it was really hot out! Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Our kids really liked the food , my husband and I thought it was soso. But what really made it fun was learning the history of Greenwich village and learning a lot of new things. The free gelato coupon at the end was the best and we all became fans of something new!

Our tour guide Curt Upton made this tour a great experience. His commitment, humour and "team building" ability made the day! Nice selection of restaurants too.

I especially enjoyed the history of the area that our guide included. The more the better. The information on the food establishments was nice too. It gave a flavor to the area.

A wonderful outing

This was a wonderful way to learn of the architecture, geography, culture and especially the local cuisine. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable, friendly and professional. The six tastings provided a wonderful cross-section of foods available in this Greenwich village neighborhood. At the top of the list were Havana and LaPalma where we hope to return for an evening of dining. We were blessed with wonderful weather for the tour, which, I'm sure helps with the overall impression. Still, we went back the next day, which was gloomy and wet, and stopped at Murray's, Rocco's and Fiacco's, filling out trunk for the ride home. Loved the tour, would recommend to anyone (and already have). We look forward to trying another tour in a different neighborhood.

One of the best things we did in New York! Our guide Cindy was witty and funny and knew her stuff! We learnt heaps of fun stuff and our bellies ended up full of some amazing authentic Village treats. We will definitely take more Foods of NY tours when we come back next year. DO THIS TOUR!!!!!!

Discover The Village in a different way
Thu, Apr 1, 10   11:00 AM swissdevil Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
It was my 8th trip to NY from Switzerland, so I know the city pretty well. But that was the first time I've taken such a tour. It was really interesting to discover Greenwich Village while walking and eating some local specialties during the 3-hours tour with an enthusiastic guide. If I had to say something negative, it would be the fact that Amercian people insist too much on the 15% to 20% tip you "have to" give, what is not so common in Europe. But I would definitely recommend the tour, as long as you understand english pretty well...
