Had spotted this tour on the internet which seemed to have an interesting itinerary. Although a wet day, Ed our tour guide was excellent on describing the foods and history of this unique area. This was our second visit to New York and we wanted to sample a more local flavour this time, we set off visiting local shops and restaurants we would never have dreamt of going into. Usually glancing at a menu outside is as far as we would ever get, but with Ed's guidance we would have the confidence to try these places in the future. The history of the area was also very rewarding, looking at a plaque outside a building never tells the real story. Excellent tour, great guide, keep up the good work.

We had the most wonderful time ever. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the city. All of the food was delicious. We never felt rushed and there were plenty of stops for the restroom. One person in our group has MS and walks with a cane. We were a little worried that she wouldn't have anywhere to sit and that she might not be able to keep up with the tour. We were very pleased at how she was able to take small breaks and our guide did not walk so fast that we could not keep up. We loved it so much we are thinking of doing another walking food tour next year. Thanks a million!!!

This was great fun as well as being very informative and very tasty. I would recommend doing it early in your NY trip so that you can go back later and spend more time in each of the shops and restaurants. It is also a great way to explore Greenwich Village which is one of NYC's highlights.

Information - wonderfully delighted on the information shared Food- incredible, can' wait to try complete dining at all of the places on the tour Tour Guide - completely made the day, no other words but GREAT Would recommend this to everyone that wants to tour the village. Not a lot of walking, so this would be suitable for anyone that can walk slowly for a few blocks. This is a don't miss when sight seeing in NYC!

My husband and I live in Amsterdam (Holland) and where visiting New York for the first time. One of our activities on the trip was this food tour. We liked Greenwich Village a lot. Our guide Bert showed us all the little shops where we tasted their specialties and he gave us lots of advice on the restaurants. We will definitely get back to try some of them! Bert also knew a lot about the neighborhood itself and the architecture. That was very interesting. Bert was a very enthusiastic and entertaining person. We learned a lot from him and had a wonderful time. This is a very good way to explore New York! So thanks very much, especially Bert, for this wonderful tour!

This was a very interesting tour with excelent food. Kurt was a great guide, very informative. We loved hearing the history of various places we saw on the tour, and especially enjoyed the opportunity to test 2 different types of pizza.
