Our guide (Barb from Brooklyn? Beatrice from Brooklyn - anyway she was from Brooklyn) did a number of things that we were impressed with: 1) she gave us some background on the various food shops, and also some history of the Village itself, which was nice and 2) she didn't B.S. her way through something. When she didn't know the answer to a question, she gave you her best guess and made it clear that she wasn't sure. So all in all it was time very well spent. We made a reservation at Palma's (?) for the following night and of course the food was excellent. thank you

Excellent tour! Guide Barrie was knowledgable about all the food, the neighborhod and the architecture. All the restaurants are excellent, we would not have found them if we didn't join the tour.

Highlight of our trip to NYC

This was our favorite thing we did the three days we where in NYC. Our guide Cindy was very enthusiastic and made the tour so enjoyable with her knowledge of the city and her GREAT sense of humor. The combination of the history, trivia, architecture, food and how the city of Greenwich evolved since the early 1800's was wonderfully explained. I had our 16 and 18 year daughters with me and they LOVED the tour. Especially the stop at the speakeasy. When we visit NYC again we will be doing a tour every day of the other areas of the city and making reservations for dinner at some of the restuarants we visited on this tour. Cindy is just a gem and a genuine pleasure to spend with for three hours in Greenwich. It was the highlight of our trip.

I would recommend everyone wanting to know about Greenwich Village to take this tour! The guide was very knowlegable, friendly, and funny. Our age group ranged from 26 up to 52 and everyone loved the tour so much we fell in love with everything about the village. The food was great!!

WORTH THE TRIP

THE ENTIRE FAMILY ENJOYED LEARNING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE VILLAGE. IT WAS NOT BORING...IT WAS FUN. WE SAW PLACES THAT WE WOULD NOT HAVE SEEN ON OUR OWN AND TASTED THE BEST FOOD IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.. ONLY CHANGE WE WOULD RECOMMEND IS TO MAKE IT MORE SR. FRIENDLY BY BEING ABLE TO STOP AND SIT SOMEWHERE MID WAY. ALSO DECREASE FEE FOR CHILDREN. OUR 4 YEAR OLD REALLY WAS NOT ABLE TO EAT ALL SAMPLES AND WE PAID FULL PRICE. WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS TYPE OF TASTING AND HISTORY TOUR DONE IN MORE NEW YORK NEIGHBORHOODS. WE PLAN ON TAKING THE CHELSE MARKET TOUR NEXT.

The tour provided an overview of the area.

Our tour guide, Eric, was fantanstic-he's an actor and he had really boned up on the historical facts of the areas that are included in Greenwich Village. He was humorous, but always polite. He seemed to know people in the area and always made sure that we kept in a group and left room for all the people in the area to be on the sidewalk. It was a great day for me and my two grown daughters --we all live in Texas.

The tour guide was excellent--engaging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I took two of my out-of-town family members and we all loved it. I have lived in New York for 2 years and am a certifiable foodie and I still learned a ton and discovered some great places to eat! Highly recommended.
