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.

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.

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!

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.

We had a group of seven people from age 8 to age 78. Everyone enjoyed the food, the history and the fabulous tour guide (Michael).

Really liked it, but might throw a glass of wine or a beer in, along with maybe some fries or something from 86 bedford. My husband is a med size guy and he could have eaten quite a bit more w/o stuffing himself.
