My daughter and I had this tour recommended to us by one of her colleagues. She said it was the most fun of their whole trip. I would have to agree! Our tour guide was knowledgeable about all aspects of New York City as well as the area we toured and the food tasting was an added bonus. We had dinner later in the evening at one of the restaurants we had seen during the tour and we were not disappointed. I can't say enough about this event. Loved it!

I would only recommend this to some one who is moving into Greenwich Village. The tour guide could have given us much more concrete historical facts, but instead it was filled with gossip and jokes about the area. i really didn't get a feel of the rich history that I know is there. The food was from fair to awful. Some of the restraunts were very unwelcoming to us when we walked in the door and I did not want to give them my patronage because of the looks on thier faces.

My wife and I,every year, vsit N.Y. as our Christmas present to each other.I thought the village would be a little different,so we booked the tour to help navigate the village during our stay. The tour did that and a great deal more. Much of that was because Michael,our guide,provided so much insight about the village, its culture,and its very interesting history. It definitly made this visit to N.Y. one of our best.Should be called Greenwich VillageTour,Its History,Its Food,Its culture,Its Uniqueness. We truly had a great time.Thank you and Happy New Year Donato & Joan Giaquinto

Our tour guide (Mike) was exceptional. His knowledge of the history of the area was phenomenal. It was a fun time despite the freezing cold weather and the food tastings were good too! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do in the city (but dress warm or avoid going in the winter)! GREAT TIME!!

It was wonderful. The weather was cold, just right for walking. The guide, Andre, was the greatest. He was insightful, witty, and full of New York spirit. He give us alot of history about the area, and had the patience of Job with some of the group. The sample food was sooooooooo good. We returned to the village, and bought from three of the merchants. We had a wonderful morning, we would recommend the tour to anyone who is coming to New York. We went back to pastry shop, the cheese shop and the pizza shop. It was a great experience, and we would do it again. David and Peggy Marsh, Tallahassee, Florida P.S. You should have seen the lines in the pastry shop on Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!
