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.

local couple looking for something different

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!

The tour was excellent. Normally there are 16 people but we were only six, so it was very familiar. It was easy to listen to Susan - our guide. She was brillant. The things we tasted were very delicious. And we get good tips were to eat. The same evening we went to two restaurants and pubs. We had fun and we're telling everybody in Germany! Thank you!

It was a great pleasure to stroll through the Village, sampling food the locals eat and learning something about the history of the area at the same time. It helped us to find where to eat and we returned to sample some of the places we'd been shown. Thanks a lot. A great idea for the beginning of your visit to New York.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable journey which lasted just over 3 hours, we visited various different places to sample food and learned a lot about the history of the area. We enjoyed it so much we went back to Chumleys for a few more visits as well as taking in dinner at one of the restaurants, the Thai, sorry can't recall the name but the food was great. Eric was our guide and he was informative and had excellant knowledge off the area and almost everyone we saw on the street seemed to know him. Woudl definitely recommend this to anyone.

Garry is an excellent guide; everyone in the area either knew him, or Garry knew them. Funny, thoughtful, extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed the mix of food and local history. All of the places we were taken to were of the highest quality and distribution of food. Tour guide was very friendly and bubbly and good information for the area. On our next visit to New York we would defintaly revisit this area and investigate the shops / food moreso. We would highly recommend for others to go on the tour.

It was wonderful, the tour leader Sindy was enthusiastic and well informed and known. We found out the history of all the establishments we visited as well as a number we did not get to! Delicious food, an interesting lesson in local history and plenty of laughs.
