We went on both the Greenwich Village and the Chelsea Markets food tours a couple of days apart, and thoroughly enjoyed both. The guides were informed and entertaining, the food was just right, and the groups were friendly. The tours made a nice break from the usual round of tourist activities. A big bonus was the information on local restaurants -- we revisited two or three in the week after the tours. We would thoroughly recommend either of these tours to anyone with any interest in food!

Had hoped it to be more food tasting. It was a very interesting info about the village, but more cultural info than food info.

Jenny, our guide was wonderful. She knew everyone and everything. She made it interesting, informative and fun! We have been on many tours in many cities this made us feel a real part of the community. Our daughter (21) attends CIA in Hyde Park New York and was delighted with the information and knowledge. This totally changed our image of " New Yorkers"; we now love the village. Vicki and Reggie Williams Robin Williams Montgomery, Al

We consider ourselves "almost local". After all we're from Connecticut, aren't we? We never go to NYC as tourists - except this time we decided to take this food tour. Didn't really know what to expect, but why not? What a surprise! The tour was wonderful! Our guide was incredible! She was the perfect mix of information and comedy theater. We learned an amazing amount about where to eat, where to buy products while also learning a whole lot we didn't know about Greenwich Village and places we've passed by many times. We ate ourselves silly, laughed a lot, learned a bunch and haven't stopped talking about the tour between ourselves and to any friends who will listen. We'll definitely be back for the Chelsea tour soon.

1. Tour guide Cindy was wonderful. In addition to her warm and funny style, you realized that she was a vital part of the neighborhood as people on the street acknowledged and greeted her. 2. The time flew by quickly. It really could have been longer. 3. I'm glad we didn't take take out to "shop" because it's a waste of our time and her expertise. 4. Group size of 16 made it personalized -- any bigger would be hard to manage and feel impersonal. 5. More tastes of more things -- even if a little bitty mouthful.

A great combination of food sampling and history of the neigborhood and the surrounding area. I'd reccomend that you take the tour on your first day in the city so that you have as much time as possible to enjoy all the fabulous restaurants.

We had a great time on the tour and learned some historical facts about Greenwich Village while sampling scrumptious food. We had Cindy as our tour guide and I must say she was quite entertaining as well as informative. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about what Greenwich Village has to offer, especially if you love to eat. Thanks again Cindy for a great time! Mario & Lori NJ

I live in New York and my Mother was visiting from London

The tour went on for longer than originally anticipated, but we were all having such a good time, nobody seemend to mind! Cindy, our guide, is a local New Yorker and it was wonderful to have an insider's viewpoint on the area. She was also very amusing, obviously enjoying herself and added tidbits of infomration many tour guides wouldn't bother with. I am seriously considering booking her for private tours when other people come out to visit me. It was one of the best $40 I've spent in the city.
