Tasting History

Joni and I were so happy to learn about the history of the neighborhood and to learn of the families who contributed the special flavors we got to experience. The guide was well informed and gracious. She new her material, was professional and allowed just the right amount of time for each stop. She was informative and kind and helped us to honor the residents and activities which are a part of the the daily life in Greenwich Village. As tourists we want to be respectful and welcomed, our guide helped us to be good neighbors. This tour was enthusiatically recommended to me and I will echo that sentiment to my friends who come to visit New York City.

We took this tour on a Sunday while visiting the city. It was great to get away from the crowded tourist areas and to experience the neighborhood like a local! Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the Village. She pointed out many of the restaurants along the route we took and described them in case we wanted to go back to them later. The food we tried was varied, yummy, and definitely enough that we weren't hungry afterwards. This tour is a great way to spend an afternoon.

THANKS - Maree was SUPER. Reminded me very much of the enthusiasm I show for my home town. Thank you again - and we particularly enjoyed the history of the neighbourhood also - not just the food. Kind cheers.

Had a great time on the tour. Barri, our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, spending plenty of time explaining the history of the area, the merchants and the foods we encountered. (We were a little uncomfortable eating while she didn't get to eat along with us though.) Especially appreciated on the tour was her thoughtful information on the history of this neighborhood; how it has changed and how valuable it is the way it has been kept. So many good bargains to be had! Would've liked a little interaction with the purveyors.

What a fun tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, seemed to know everything about the Village. The food was wonderful. We could have spent the whole day there if not for the weather. Every visitor to New York should take this tour!
