A walking tour of Greenwich Village while it's 105 degrees outside. Tough, very tough. But, the food was fantastic. Would have been nice to include more wine tastings. Nice tidbits of info on Greenwich Village that you could probably have gotten by Googling. If you are looking for info/background on the different types of restaurants and other eateries in the village, take the tour.

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!

This was my first food tour and was highly recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and it made one want to go back to each store for more!! I didn't want the tour to end. Planning my next food tour....can't wait.

Wonderful introduction to a NY neighborhood

Whether you're a first time visitor to New York City or not, this tour is a wonderful introduction to a neighborhood, its food, shops, and residents. The tour buses drive through here for a reason. But instead of being inside a bus, you can be mingling with the locals. Definitely worth the cost and time!

We were a group of 4 -- 2 adults and 2 teen-agers -- and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the restaurants and menus, and she couldn't have been nicer or more enthuastic. Two of us are vegetarians, and I was impressed that the tour operators were able to arrange for food that we were able to eat. Some of the foods were unusual, but all of it was delicious, and filling. I would recommend this tour for anyone - tourists and New Yorkers alike. You would not be disappointed.

Great tour with excellent food tastings

The tour was well planned considering it started at noon and most of the establishments had customers. Food tastings were all very good with absolutely no need for lunch following the tour. Would highly recomment.

Good Combination of Information and Entertainment

Good balance of food types in the tastings. Tour guide was sensitive to the effect of the very hot weather on the group. Guide was knowledgeable about the architecture and history of the district and imparted interesting information. We would have preferred fewer references to the Food Network but enjoyed her humor. The length of the tour was just about right; could have been 1/2 hr shorter. Would have preferred fewer people (10 rather than 15).
