Michael, our guide, was passionate and knowledgeable about the neighborhood in which he resides. We had a great time tasting samples and learning much about the history of the area. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide, Michael, was superb! He has a great sense of humor, a phenomenal knowledge of the neighborhood, a great taste for good food, and a wonderful way about him that makes the 3-plus hours move smoothly. The choices of restaurants and their delights was perfect for the noon time tour, but most important was learning so much about the history and architecture of Greenwich Village. It was simply a delight for my wife and me....and if you're in Weight Watchers, throw caution to the wind and enjoy life!

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was very informative and very personable. I thought the tour had a nice balance in the contenet that was shared with us. The food we tasted and the history provided me with a greater understanding and appreciation. I enjoyed my experince so much that the next time I go to N.Y.C. I will do another tour,

Highly recommended tour due to the personality and vast knowledge of tour guide. Having the business owners visit with the tour group was a nice touch. Tour guide might not want to make assumption that everyone is from out-of-town. I didn't not enjoy the tasting consisting of deep-fried mushrooms as much.

we were not sure about a walking tour, honestly i thought it would be boring especially for three hours! Our guide Kurt was hysterical and we learned so much along the way, all while tasting great food and seeing great restaurants! fantastic.. we LOVED kurt and would recommend anyone taking the tour to try to request him! k jackson

Greenwich Village Tour - a great day!

We were a party of four - two couples. Some of us can be very picky about food; but, we all had a great time! Christian, our guide, was informative, friendly and genuinely enjoyed showing us the Village. The food was plentiful and offered a nice sampling. The men thought Joe's pizza was outstanding. We ended up having dinner at one of Christian's recommendations and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Although I loved the food, I liked seeing and hearing about the neighborhood the most. I honestly did not realize what a self contained residential area it was. I am not sure I would have found my way to the lovely streets we vistied on my own. I highly recommend this tour. We had such a good time that we plan on taking the other tours. Thanks Christian!
