Excellent Food and Information

the food was excellent and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about both the food, area, and other topics of interest that we discussed throughout. i typically don't do tours simply because i am not a fan of "Tranditional" tours, however, this one was worth it and i'll be sure to do again (albeit different area) next time I'm in NYC.

Really enjoyed learning more about Greenwich Village. The tasting were great, especially loved the rice balls. I plan to go back with my husband and try one of the restaurants for dinner.

We were met promptly and corteously. Kurt the guide was polite and gave explanations but did not overdo it! All places were clean and we were made welcome. It was a bit awkward in the first place 'Joes Pizza ' due to lack of room. He seemed to enjoy himself and was good with a funny cross-section of people. These were mostly American and they enjoyed it. Best part of our trip. After it we spent a part of the day going round in more detail. We would do it again. Kurt got the biggest tip all week.

Fantastic taste of New York

This was a very enjoyable tour of the food and cultural highlights of one of the most historic areas of New York city. We gathered at Murray's Cheese shop and our guide, Marie, was very welcoming and friendly. The food we tasted was of very high quality and gave us a full flavour of the gastronomic delights of the Greenwich village area. As visitors from Scotland we would highly recommend this tour as a perfect way to find your bearings and plan your stay in the area.

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.
