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 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.

Superior "flavor" of Greenwich Village

Tour Guide Michael Karp is "the" best-informed tour guide we have ever encountered, and this includes international tours. His knowledge base is obviously from personal experience and not by 'preparation'. The three hour experience melted away as he wove the tapestry of the village - of course in culinary tasting-but more importantly in the history and fabric of the village itself. One could never understand all the nuances with a self-guided tour and clearly, Mr. Karp's wealth of knowledge reflects his interest in the subject. His knowledge of history astounded us. As a docent/tour guide at a museum in our hometown, we understand what it takes to be well informed for the visitor experience. THANK YOU for assigning us to Mr. Karp and give him our profound thanks. We would certainly do this tour again, and would request Mr. Karp for the occasion.

This tour is fabulous. We had Michael who has a wealth of knowledge of the Village and is entertaining. Not only did we taste great food, but we also came away with an appreciation for Greenwich Village, it's culture and food! I was surprised at the variety in the tour. I guess I expected us to walk non-stop and eat non-stop, but it was a good mix of touring, stopping to here details of an area and food tasting. This tour is a definite highlight of our vacation and I would say a "don't miss" for anyone going to New York!

It's a great way to get familiarized with the neighborhood for those who just moved to the area.

My husband, three teenage daughters, and I had a great time. The food was delicious and the historical facts and trivia were interesting and fun. Lots of great suggestions on resturants we will definitely be visiting in the future.
