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!

This tour was one of the best things I have ever done in NYC. Michael, our tour guide, provided us with a wonderful afternoon of good food mixed with history and architecture. It was amazing, and I not only learned Greenwich Village history, but have discovered many restaurants and clubs that I will certainly try out in the future. We literally walked around the block, but it felt like we toured around the world. I highly recommend this tour, and am going to sign up for another one in the Meatpacking District when I return to NYC next month. It has also given me some amazing places to take friends when we visit.

My mom and I took this tour hoping to see an inside look at Greenwich Village. We were not disappointed! Our guide, Marie, was fantastic and showed us many off the beaten path houses, restaurants, bars, theaters, etc. The food was all very good and the portions were huge for a tasting! I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family, and will certainly try one of the other Food Tours on future trips.

Our group of four had a very enjoyable time on the food tour. We enjoyed all of the food selections and learning about the history and culture of Greenwich Village. We highly recommend this tour. We plan on returning and participating in one of the other tours offered.

We took the tour on one of the coldest days of the year (something like minus 8 - without allowing for the wind-chill factor), yet still had a great time. The food-tasting element is more low-key than expected (a couple of bits of pizza, a rice ball, an Italian pastry and some cheese) but the informative, enthusiastic and entertaining style of our guide (Michael) - covering architecture, history and local anecdote as well as food - made it a tour to remember. We were a group of four from London and while we sometimes shivered in the biting New York temperatures (making London seem almost balmy by comparison), this was a highlight of our trip. Well worth sampling - but try to pick a warm day!
