Far beyond what was expected

This tour was outstanding! Our guide was not only knowledgable but engaging and entertaining as well. He was only one of the components that made this such a fun tour. The food was outstanding, the stores were unique, the cultural history of the Village was colorful and the actual walk was quite enjoyable. What a great way to spend an afternoon!

This tour was excellent! Our group leader, Ed, was friendly and knew about the area in detail. We learned a lot about the West Village and enjoyed great food as well. The food tastings were spaced so that we were full but not too full. We can't wait to go back on our own to try several of the restaurants. We also plan to take a different tasting tour in the near future. It was a highlight of our trip.

We were a group of 4 and are glad we took the tour. Now when we return to the area, we wil have a general idea of where to go as many of the business signs do not jump right out at you. We loved the taste testing. The food was great!

i really enjoyed the food tour. the only suggestion i would liek to pose is to not do two pizza restaurants on the tour. i understand these places probably are the simplest to do a sampling at but i think it would have been nicer to have a sample at a different type of restaurant. i am really excited to go back and try all the restaurants that were featured on the tour.

Who doesn't like to eat?

Loved the tour. Bought at the stores after the tour with the discount they provided tour members so our NY hosts could also enjoy the wonderful food. Now we are continuing to order via the internet with our discount so we can share the great food with our California neighbors. Who doesn't like to eat? We are already planning to take some of the other tours on future trips to NY. Keep up the good work.

this is a good tour for gourmands and food enthusiasts...the first 30 minutes I felt as if I was trying to be sold to eat at different restaurants...the second half of the tour which included more historical material was interesting

Our guide Cindy was informative, humorous, and she engaged everyone in our group. We enjoyed our leisurely walk even though it was very chilly. Food samples were generous and delicious but I think we could have had more diversity and more gourmet foods. We enjoyed having a list of recommended eateries for our next visit. Overall, a positive family experience.
