I had a fantastic time on this tour. As someone from a multicultural city who has experienced lots of different cuisines, I was still delighted by the yummy treats offered during this tour. We learned several things about Greenwich Village and felt more comfortable getting around the neighbourhood after the tour. There was more than enough food to leave you not wanting lunch. One of the great features was getting a fresh slice of hot pizza from the start. We even sat down for a bit during the middle of the tour to have some rissotto, and the fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies were such as treat. When we walked through the restaurants and shops, I could tell the other customers were somewhat envious about what we weere eating and learning. In addition, our tour guide was well-spoken, cheerful, knowledgeable, and as in-love with NYC as we became. I'd highly recommend the Greenwich Village tour. Dress warmly, wear comfortable shoes, and come with an empty stomach. Cheers!

We entered the city on a cold and rainy Saturday and made our way through crowds of tourists with umbrellas. After wondering if we had made a mistake in coming, we made our way to Greenwich Village via subway and were greeted by Cindy--a wonderful, motherly hostess to the Village. We forgot about the cold and rain and thoroughly enjoyed her enthusiasm for all we saw and tasted. It was a delightful 3 hours and highly recommended.

Guiltless Gourmet in Greenwich

The tour is well-planned, easily walkable with plenty of sitting-to-eat breaks (I'm 20 weeks pregnant, and I never felt outpaced), and most importantly delicious food! The tour sampled 7 outstanding local establishments, while highlighting others that we might also like to enjoy (and many in my group did immediately go try the extra choices when the tour was over). We got a wonderful sense of the West Village--its character, history, gossip, and fabulous foods! A very, very special tour. I can't recommend it enough.

My husband and I had a great time on our tour. In fact, we spend two full days in NYC, and we both agreed the Greenwich Tour was the best part of our trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and nice. Thanks, Carrie-Anne Atkins and Brian Atkins Toronto, ON, Canada

This tour was a nice intro to Greenwich Village, a gem neighborhood of NYC that's full of quaint and delicious restaurants, specialty shops, theaters and cool places to live. Our guide was friendly and informed, dropping in enough history and current culture to make the midday trek through the Village continually interesting. Plus, the " food tastings" were great!
