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.

Fun, Funny and Informative

Our guide Kirt was very knowledgeable and concise. The time went by really quickly and every minute was filled with suggestions and wonderful food! Kirt was quick and funny and turned us on to restaurants, delicatessens, stores and neighborhood characters. We would do it again in a New York minute. As a matter of fact, we did return to the cheese store and deli the very next day. The one weird moment was when Kirt hid behind a pole in the subway after the tour when he saw us. Not cool, Kirt. We really thought you liked us.

This was a fantastic tour that I would highly recommend to anyone spending some time in New York. Our tour guide was hilarious, the food was delicious, and it was a great way to get to know a neighborhood that we might otherwise have missed out on. It's worth the money and time! :)
