liked so much the first time, went again

I first went on this tour a couple years ago with a friend from Manhatten. I enjoyed it so much that I recently went again with a friend unfamiliar with Greenwich Village. I enjoyed it all over. My only slight criticism is that perhaps limiting the group to 10 would be more comfortable. (We were 15).

Michael was the best tour guide we have ever experienced. His knowledge of the area was priceless.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The walk was just enough to help us appreciate the food and not too strenuous. Liked the historical references and architecture lessons. The food was generous and a good variety of snacks, desserts, and heartier fare like pizza. Amy was a great tour guide.

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

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

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.

Highlight of our trip to NYC
Mon, Aug 7, 06   11:30 AM jobaldwin Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was our favorite thing we did the three days we where in NYC. Our guide Cindy was very enthusiastic and made the tour so enjoyable with her knowledge of the city and her GREAT sense of humor. The combination of the history, trivia, architecture, food and how the city of Greenwich evolved since the early 1800's was wonderfully explained. I had our 16 and 18 year daughters with me and they LOVED the tour. Especially the stop at the speakeasy. When we visit NYC again we will be doing a tour every day of the other areas of the city and making reservations for dinner at some of the restuarants we visited on this tour. Cindy is just a gem and a genuine pleasure to spend with for three hours in Greenwich. It was the highlight of our trip.
