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.

Our group, from MA, visits NY every year at this time and this is the first time we have taken one of these tours. We enjoyed every minute of the 3 hrs., both for the history and the food. The guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable, witty and kept the group moving at a good pace. On our next trip we will book another tour and hopefully get the same guide. We all had a great time and will recommend it to others.
