Mother and teenage daughter on a school holiday

My daughter and I were delighted with the historically based walking tour of Greenwich. The food samples were really delicious and the sights were terrific. Additionally, our guide was enthusiastic and knowlegable. The day of our tour was very cold so we would have preferred to walk more quickly between the restaurants, rather than lingering outdoors so long between stops. This is a three hour tour that could be two hours if we didn't linger so long on the street. Overall, we were very pleased with the tour and will recommend it to our friends who may visit New York.

Although I really enjoyed the tour, it was not at all what I expected. I learned a lot about different restaurants and shops in the area, but was surprised that we sampled from only 8 places (when there were over 30 listed). But, the samples were excellent and it was enough food to substitute for a lunch. I would recommend this to anyone interested. On top of that, the tour guide was excellent!

Very engaging guide [Michael?]. Liked the history of the Village and enjoyed learning about restaurants we will sample on future visits. Helped that it was a lovely sunny day in January.

We spent 3 days in New York seeing shows, visiting museums, eating, and otherwise enjoying what the city has to offer. The Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour was the highlight of our visit. Even though it was February and quite chilly outside, our guide Cindy kept us warm by stopping in the sun or getting us inside quickly. She was very informative and knew the answers to just about every question our group asked. The food was incredible at each and every stop and we especially liked the opportunity to stop briefly and have a drink at Chumley's (speakeasy bar)!

We LOVED the tour! Our guide (Cindy) could not have done a better job. We highly recommend this tour to visitors as well as native New Yorkers. Everyone will learn something new. We are looking forward to taking another Zerve tour the next time we visit.

We had a wonderful tour given by Susan Birnbaum. It was delightful and interesting. We had an enjoyable and fun time and the food tastings were excellent. We already have visited some of the food places and will keep returning.

Our guide, Susan, was quite knowledgeable; her presentation style was friendly and seasoned with a good sense of humor. Nice selection and variety of places we visited and sampled. Actually got enough food to eat to count for lunch (if you're not digging ditches). We were moved right along to meet the tour schedule, but I didn't feel rushed. A couple days later, we were able to take a long-time NYC resident to Chumley's, where he'd never been before and had always wanted to visit!
