Curt (our intrepid guidemeister) was friendly, civilized, extremely knowledgeable about food and local architecture but, more than anything, VERY enthusiastic about the neighborhood, the eats, the shops. The food we tasted was wonderful, we wanted to go back to the village and eat more of everything. Just a wonderful introduction to the neighborhood and a thoroughly great time led by a very amusing but very gentlemanly, upbeat, articulate guide.

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.

Cindy was as enthusiastic & as knowledgable as one can imagine. The tour provided a fun, interesting, and deliciously intimate view of the Village. My friend from Paris and I both loved every minute.

My college age daughter and I went on this tour along with a couple of friends. What a great way to spend a few hours with family and friends. The food was good, the tour of the village was outstanding and the places we visited were all very friendly and hospitable. We will definitely go back to several of them for lunch or dinner. At the end of it all we could not believe how much we had actually eaten over the few hours we were walking. Thank you for a great tour experience.

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!

Kurt was our tour guide and he was enthusiastic and interesting. We took this tour to familiarize ourselves with the West Village area but we enjoyed it more than we could ever have guessed. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the comments about the architecture and history. We enjoyed it so much that we related our experience to our dinner companions and they all want to take the tour now. The most important thing to me is that, now, when I return to the W. Village, I will feel like I know where I am going and what I am doing. Thanks for a great tour!

liked so much the first time, went again

I first went on this tour a couple years ago with a friend from Manhatten. I enjoyed it so much that I recently went again with a friend unfamiliar with Greenwich Village. I enjoyed it all over. My only slight criticism is that perhaps limiting the group to 10 would be more comfortable. (We were 15).

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The walk was just enough to help us appreciate the food and not too strenuous. Liked the historical references and architecture lessons. The food was generous and a good variety of snacks, desserts, and heartier fare like pizza. Amy was a great tour guide.
