Take the tour only if you enjoy food tasting

Overall, I had a good time on the Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour and the tour guide was very comical. I really enjoyed tasting the various foods on the tour (some food tasting stops were better than others though) and the tour did a great job of accomodating a vegetarian diet. If you enjoy food tasting and plan on revisiting the Greenwich Village area during your trip, then this is a really good tour to take because the tour guide gives you restaurant recommendations. However, if you are taking the tour to learn about the culture/history of Greenwich Village, then I would recommend taking another tour because I didn't learn very much about the area. Although this is a 3 hour tour, a lot of the time is spent waiting for the tour guide to go into the restaurant and bring out the food to the group. Also, I was hoping to explore more of the Greenwich Village area, but you basically stay on the same street during the tour. I think this tour is overpriced for what it is.

This tour was lots of fun and great value for money. We discovered some great places that we would not have found on our own. Thanks to all involved.

We have heard about Greenwich Village since the 1960's but have not kept up with the changes that have occurred over the years. It is an area filled with history unique to the Village. We enjoyed the tasting experiences and the tour so much. This was a highlight of our NYC visit. Can't wait to try one of the other food tasting and culture tours offered in NYC. .

Even as a native New Yorker I found it informative. perhaps a little more local history. The guide,Cindy,was lively and entertaining. I would skip Rocco,s but perhaps that is just personal taste.

We had a terrific experience on the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking tour a few years ago, and chose the Greenwich Village tour last weekend. It was the highlight of our weekend in New York. Great guide, stories, and delicious/plentiful food. Looking forward to the Soho tour on our next visit. Great job!!
