Tour was very good. Guide was extremely knowledgeable- at times perhaps talked a bit too much, which left us standing around a lot. His experience and knowledge, however, were invaluable. Very friendly, intimate look at the Village. Overall, a highly recommended tour.

Very fun, our guide was delightful. However, she did not provide as much detail/discussion of the sites, as the guide from my prior tour did. (I took this tour with a different group about two years ago. He provided much more detail, especially on the architecture of the area.)

Really enjoyed it and the guide was very nice. the only semi-confusing part was specifically where we were supposed to meet. We were waiting inside Rocco's and it was very crowded. Just happen to go outside and someone asked us if we were with the tour group. Would definietley recommend it to others. Didn't care for the pizza though!

12-14 The guide, Michael ?, was excellent guide. There were many times that it was hard to hear him due to the street noise. He was very knowledgable of the area & the history. We enjoyed him very much. He talked w-all of us to make it a more personal contact & we felt that was important. The food---what can I say-it was wonderful-we were afraid we would leave hungry, but instead we never ate again that day. If I were to give any suggestion concerning the tour, I simply would say -advertise more-

We were only about a half hour into the tour when we all said we HAVE to book the Chelsea tour for our NY trip next year. It was extremely entertaining. The tour guide, Cindy, was very knowledgeable and has a great personality. All of the tastings were delicious and we learned a lot. Highly recommended!!!

We should've done this tour our very first day of the trip! Had we done that, we would have eaten every night in Greenwich! This tour was a great "Up Close and Personal" look at the backroads of Greenwich - its flavors (restaurants/cheese/meat & chocolate shops,) its characters (chefs as well as tour guides,) architectural elements of old Greenwich, historical surprises (speakeasies!) ... You just have to stop and smell the roses when you travel, and this was a great stop indeed.
