Great Food, Great Tour!

Cindy knew a whole lot about the Village (both current and historically) and seemed to be well known and well liked by those in the community. Lots of sightseeing and discussion between the food tastings. Overall, we tried 2 different (half-slice sized) types of pizza, a wonderful rice ball from the Italian market, a delicious combined cheese, meat and bread sampler from Murray's, Amy's and the Italian market, the best cannoli we ever had at Rocco's and an "opera cake" at a Northern Italian bakery next to Rocco's. Would love to have a few more samples added to the tour, since it is truly a food tasting tour first and lasted over 3 hours, but we had a great time overall and hope to come back and do another tour (Chelsea/MePa) in the future

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We had some amazing food samples and discovered lots about Greenwich Village, an area we hadn't visited before. We have recommended this tour to friends.

did this on a recommendation of a friend who did the same Greenwich Village tour and she had 2 more food stops than I. Needed another food taste - of something other than pizza or desert.

Cindy kept us on schedule, informed, entertained, and full. What more could you ask? I will recommend it to all my friends visiting NYC.

Our guide (Barb from Brooklyn? Beatrice from Brooklyn - anyway she was from Brooklyn) did a number of things that we were impressed with: 1) she gave us some background on the various food shops, and also some history of the Village itself, which was nice and 2) she didn't B.S. her way through something. When she didn't know the answer to a question, she gave you her best guess and made it clear that she wasn't sure. So all in all it was time very well spent. We made a reservation at Palma's (?) for the following night and of course the food was excellent. thank you

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour - it was a stand out during my 10 days in NYC. Our guide (Cindy) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the local produce, vendors and the Greenwich Village area - everyone in the group related well to her. If you are looking to do something just a bit different and less touristy; this is the activity for you (and it was delicious!). Caroline (Australia) PS I took my husband back to Greenwich Village later that week and did my own gourmet tour with him which he loved - thanks for all the insider tips!!

We were a combo of locals and out of towners with a knowledge of the city, but we learnt things we definetly did not know beforehand. The guide had great anecdotes that totally added to the walk, the food was very good, well paced as was the walk and the variety of food was perfect. I would highly recommend the walk to New Yorkers as well as visitors.

Excellent tour! Guide Barrie was knowledgable about all the food, the neighborhod and the architecture. All the restaurants are excellent, we would not have found them if we didn't join the tour.
