Kurt our tour guide was knowledgeble, interesting and funny. He is from the area and was able to provide historical information on NYC, Greenwich village as well as the sites visited. All the food was great and filling. You will not be hungry after the tour. The kids who are a "hard sell' on tourist attractions all loved it too.

Food Tour Delight

The food tour was in a word: awesome. The guide (Curt) was knowledgable, enthusiastic, personable, and fun. You can tell he loves his job! The many places we visited were all fabulous. The variety of food was tremendous, as well as delicious. The guides knowledge of not only the food, but the neighbourhood was really appreciated. He told many interesting stories concerning the history and the people of the Village, that really expanded the tour. My suggestion to all visitors is to go on a food tour in every city they vacation in. We will certainly do another food tour on our next trip to NYC.

Our tour guide was just wonderful (CarryAnn?), full of great stories and her enthusiasim was contagious. I knew the tour would have some great food tastings but it was much more then that. Thoroughly enjoyable and the food was excellent. We will be doing all of the tours in the near future!

This tour was a wonderful way to explore a part of New York that we may not otherwise have discovered. Our tour guide, Heather, was knowledgeable, interesting and made us all feel most welcome. The tour pace was leisurely and the food experiences were awesome.

My favorite tourist experience in NYC

I would HIGHLY recommend the Foods of New York walking tour in Greenwich Village. Our tour guide Ed was a local, very informative, and friendly. Not only did we learn about the food culture of Greenwich Village, but we learned about the historical aspect as well. We got to try a lot of different foods and see a wide variety of food shops and restaurants. The food was fabulous, and I was completely full by the end. This was an unforgettable experience!

We got to see and hear about some fabulous little restaurants that otherwise would be impossibly hard to find for international visitors. The tour also provided a brief historical perspective of the area and architecture, which was unexpected but welcome.

very enjoyable, educational tour of Greenwich

It's a great way to learn about a section of the city and true insights for non- New Yorkers. The tour buses are nothing compared to what this offers - more details of the area with the shopping and the food. We had a great tour guide that spoke from the heart and was a true NY. Very easy pace so if you want to purchase items from the shops, the timing is relaxed. The shop owners enjoyed the group and eagerly served great samples and suggestions.

I've lived in NYC for eight years and this is the second time I've gone on this tour. The first was with a best friend and this time was with my boyfriend. NYC dwellers can appreciate this tour just as much if not more than tourists becuase we can head the advice of our guides and go back to the restaurants we visited. It's the perfect mix of history and culinary indulgence. Being italian (and my boyfriend not) I got to share with him a piece of my culture as well. I plan on giving a gift certificate to my family and friends for the holidays. On another note, our tour guide Mike was fantastic. He is a true veteren of the village and his frequent familiarity with the patrons and dwellers of the neigborhood added to the experience. I felt as if he really new the village and had not just read a guide provided by the organization. Please, please create a food tour for other neighborhoods in NY. Such a treat!
