Even the kids thought this was a lot of fun. Food was great. Tour guide was informative, entertaining, friendly and helpful. Fun to learn about neighborhood as well as restaurants we wouldn't have found on our own.

Since taking this tour a couple of days ago, I have already recommended it to several people. The food was great, and I really feel as though I know this corner of the city now. Amy was a great tour guide. I will definitely try to fit in another of these tours the next time I am in NYC.

There were seven of us. We would have paid more to have a private tour with just the seven of us.

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.

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.

This was one of the best tours I have taken in a long time! Not only do you get to taste a variety of foods - (all scrumptious) ,but you get a ton of information on the history , the businesses, and the people who live and work in the Village. The length of the tour was just right - not too short or too long . I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to discover more about New York while having fun tasting your way through the Village.

Our tour guide did a great job of creating a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We liked the way she engaged members of the group, especially the children. Given her professinal background in the culinary arts, she was able to bring considerable knowledge to a discussion of the foods we tasted and the restaurants in the neighborhood. The architectural features of the historic buildings that she pointed out were well chosen -- enough detail to bring an era to life, but not so much as to be overwhelming. We came away with a feeling of connectedness to the area, so much so, that an article in Tuesday's New York Times about the South Village turned us into preservation advocates. We plan to return to NY for another food tour, and for dinner at one of the neighborhood restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon. L.T. and A.T.

The Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour, provided by Food Tours is the perfect tour, especially if you love to eat!!! Our guide, Barri, was very knowledgeable and engaging. The pace was perfect, the food tastings were all exceptional and the history made the area come alive. My only regret was in not having a ZipLoc bag for the extras that were offered.
