Cindy, our tour guide, was by far the crowning jewel of the tour. She was knowledgeable, bubbly, witty, friendly and wonderful. Her insight into the village gave the tour more depth and made us feel like we were really getting to know the area like a true native. The restaurants, bakeries, and shops we visited were both great eateries and interesting places to visit and shop. We went back and shopped at a few of the places and plan on making reservations at a few of the restaurants for our next visit to the city. I would recommend this tour to anyone, local or tourist as a great meal and interesting and fun time.

I highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was great - knowledgeable and fun. We definitely got a flavor of the Village and it's wonderful food and interesting stores and history. We're from SF, which has a lot of good food, and we were all quite impressed with the quality and variety of the food.

I would thoroughly recommend it. The guide was committed and articulate. I suppose I had expected more esoteric foodieness, but I now see that the essence of the NY foodie is to care deeply about the quality even of basic staples like pizza and olives. There was also unexpected and fascinating chunks of history e.g. the speakeasy.

As frequent visitors to NYC, my teen-age daughter and I were looking for something "different" to do. This tour was one of the best we have ever taken of NYC. It was the perfect mix of Village trivia, architecture facts, history, and FOOD. The restaurant stops were wonderful and the food was fantastic!

My wife and I had done the tour before, and took our son and a friend.

This was the second time I took the tour with my wife (third time for her), and we brought our son and his friend, and it was a wonderful experience. I thought our last tour guide was terrific, but Cindy simply blew us away. What amazed me most was, here we were, in the greatest, most eclectic city in the world, and in the span of three hours, at least half a dozen people on the street came up to Cindy to say hello, as if we were in a small town. While I am a lifelong New Yorker, I felt like a tourist compared to Cindy's knowledge, as I learned things I never knew before. We will highly recommend this tour to friends, and would hope to get Cindy once again the next time we take it ourselves.

We all felt that this was one of the highlights of our trip to New York. The guide was friendly and very knowledgable. The food was great tasting and unique. We were pleasantly surprised that the tour provided us with so much interesting information about the history and architecture of the area. We would highly recommend it to anyone. We went back to the area to have dinner in one of the recommended restaurants and were not disappointed.
