Excellent Tour. Excellent Guide.

The tour was great. Much more food than we expected. The tastings are very good portions. Zefra (am I close?) was a great tour guide. She gave just a bit of history, architecture, entertainment, and was extremely knowledgable on food. Just what you should expect from a tour of this kind. She was extremely friendly and upbeat. We highly recommend this tour to anybody. Definitely request this tour guide if possible.

We had a great time yesterday on the Greenwich Village food tasting tour. Sephrah, our tour guide was very funny and informative. The food was excellent and everyone was very friendly. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

I had taken this tour 10 years ago and it is still fabulous!! A wonderfully detailed way to get to know a neighborhood and so tasty!! The cook at Palma even made us wonderful blueberry muffins, totally unexpectedly. I was with native New Yorkers and they loved getting to know their city in such a focused way. My only 'complaint' is that it would be better to keep the group to around 10 folks, instead of 16. thank you so much, Marie! You did an awesome job.

A tour worth the time and cost

I would highly recommend this tour - even to NY residents. Marie (our tour guide) was great. The tour had a good balance of yummy food and a history of the neighborhood. This should be done early if one is staying temporarily in the city so you can go back at your own pace and enjoy the places on the tour (we did a couple of times!)

Our guide was informative and friendly. The food was more than enough for lunch. We really enjoyed the tips and coupons for places in the area. That will really help on a return visit.

My husband and I are real "foodies" so decided to do the Food Tasting Tour of Greenwich Village. The tour was fantastic, a really enjoyable way to spend 3 hours, eating your way around all the gems of Greenwich Village. Our guide Kurt was so enthusiastic about all the places we visited - he made the tour really interesting and entertaining. We even went back to Greenwich the following night to try a restaurant he recommended "Le Gigot" - fabulous! I would definitely recommend this tour - you wont be disappointed!

Be prepared to EAT!

There was so much good food on this tour that many people in our group almost groaned from being so full when our guide said there were three more tastings left. Once we got the food the groaning ended. I loved how there was a good mix of sweet, savory and everyhing in between. The guide was great and gave us history of the area (more that was expected) and that was a welcome treat. They were also great at accomodating special dietary needs as long as you tell them when you buy your tickets. I would recommed this to anyone - tourist or people that live in the city. There might be someplace you never thought of going to before.

Our group of 6 'Canucks' from Vancouver, B.C. found the Greenwich walking tour to be an excellent experience! A great way to get an introduction to the history, architecture and culinary tastings of several well established, successful business's in the fascinating Greenwich Village! Our guide (Marie) was very knowledgable and kept the tour interesting and informative. Lunch was not required after having enjoyed the various food samplings offerered throughout the tour. Definitely one of our top 5 experiences during our 5 day visit to NYNY...

What a great way to get a taste of the city!

We thoroughly enjoyed the walk through Greenwich Village, and we especially loved the food samples. This was a really wonderful way to get to know a NYC neighborhood a little more intimately than we would have if we'd wandered around the streets by ourselves. We look forward to trying another Foods of NY tour the next time we come back to the city.
