Discover The Village in a different way

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...

From the moment the tour started and our convivial guide gave us our bottled water, I knew this was going to be an amazing culinary journey. Eating our way through the west village was a three hour experience I will not forget..you learn a great deal about the history of the area, recommendations on places to dine and soak in this special part of the city.. and the FOOD, oh my, you get to sample an array of delicious food from several establishments-its really worth the time and money and you will not be disappointed. Its an afternoon to saveur for many reasons. Plus all the walking that you do will make you less guilty on the indulgences!

Took the Greenwich Village Tour in 2005 and loved it. Wondered if this might just be a straight repeat, but still felt it was worth going. We were delighted to find both old favorites and new places to see on the current tour. Marie, our guide, was so good. We've also previously taken the Chelsea Market and Central Village/SoHo tours, and look forward to repeating those also!

Delicious and educational

When we were asked to meet at Murry's Cheese Shop and the taxi driver didn't know where it was, I began wondering about my decision to take this tour. But I was pleasantly surprised and 3 hrs later, my friends and I couldn't stop talking about the fun we had that day with our friends. The food was delicious and the conversation with our guide was very educational. She was very knowledgeable of the area, and the choices of restaurants and food establishments were excellent. If you're into chocolate.......We had the best chocolate chip cookie ever made. Yes, I love sweets! But everyone marveled over these cookies. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to a friend.

What a fun tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, seemed to know everything about the Village. The food was wonderful. We could have spent the whole day there if not for the weather. Every visitor to New York should take this tour!

An interesting tour that provides a great context

An interesting experience in that it was pouring with rain but we still proceeded. The tour guide appeared quite knowledgeable about the area and the content of the tour. We were staying in West village - so it helpfully provided us with more detail of our area. The only thing we would say is that it may have been helpful for people in the group to introduce themselves by name, and to shorten the tour by about 15 minutes.

Fun & enlightening experience - highly recommended

We participated in the Greenwich Village Tour in early January. Our guide was a local resident of the area, and her passion for the neighborhood, its local merchants, and its historic significance was evident and contagious. The food tastings were plentiful, enough for a meal, but better than that, they were of exceptional quality and often unique to the restaurant or shop visited --- that allowed the group to have tasting experiences we likely would not have discovered on our own. The restaurant & shop owners/staff were all extremely accommodating --- we purchased items from some that day, and will absolutely return for additional dining & shopping experiences in this part of the city. The pace of the tour was good, the tour length was fine (even though it was chilly, the 3 hours actually seemed to fly by), and the variety kept everyone's interest. All in all, a terrific experience and an excellent value. We will take advantage of other tours this company offers.

The tour was outstanding! It was a great way to spend the day! The tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable not only about the local landmarks, but also about food. The restaurants and local establishments that we visited were excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.
