We had a great time and thought Andre was fabulous. We loved his sense of humor and his insight. The seven tastings were all great too! We recommended it to our friends that live in the city...They plan to attend shortly too!

I thought that this was the best thing that we did while in NYC. I am not a very touristy person and loved to get to know some of the local culture and try foods that are delicious along the way. The size of the group was perfect and the sights much better than the "normal" attractions.

A very enjoyable few hours - food acts as a very good punctuation to any area tour, and the guide was charming, very friendly and well informed. Would recommend it to anyone!

I have already recommended this activity to friends as a great activity, particularly if they have family visiting. Great way to spend some time out of the house, and learn more about NY and great food.

From Chicago and visiting New York with a friend for the holidays

I was travelling with a friend from Chicago. I visit New York on a regular visit but most of the time I do not get a chance to see the neighborhoods. I loved this tour. The tour guide was excellent, provide great tidbits on the neighborhood. I loved the different spots we made on the tour. I would highly recommend this tour. It was a three hour tour and it went by so quickly. My friend and I also ended up spending more time in Greenwich based on what we experienced/learned during the tour.

We were recommended to take the tour by our daughter, who had been there during the Summer. It was absuloutely fantastic, we can't recommend it highly enough. Michael is so enthusiastic about the area and brought the whole place to life for us. When you're a stranger it's sometimes a bit intimidating to venture into unknown places, but after Michael's highly entertaining and informative tour we felt happy to explore on our own and next time we're in New York, we'll definately visit again. We also met Cindy en route, which was a bonus. Thanks for a great time.

Highly recommended! Although the day was bitterly cold, Todd gave a great tour! With a small group of 6, we were able to pop into many of the places that we visited. This gave us a quick chance to warm up...and see the inside of some wonderful restaurants we would never have otherwise chosen to visit on our own. We went back to several places on the tour and will definitely visit more of them on our next trip!

We thought it was great - a very diverse range of recommended eateries. Tour guide Andre was very knowledgeable and personable. Loved the take-home guide provided - we went to dinner at one of the recommended restaurants (Little Havana) and it was excellent - and just as Andre described. After dinner we went across the street to another recommended spot to hear some live music and had a great time there too. Thanks - I'll be referring others to your tour...

Where can I begin. We had the best time on this tour. I have lived in NJ my whole life and had never been to the village,other than being born at St. Vincents hospital. We took the path train in from Hoboken and walked to our meeting spot. Our guide Mike was one of a kind. He was so entertaining, personable,and a wealth of imformation. I realize now why anyone who has ever visited the village rave about it. The restaurants, specialty shops and atmosphere is totally New York. The tour flew by and every stop we made was better than the previous. I can't stop talking about the tour to friends and family and can't wait to take out of town guest on the walk. It is by far one of the best values. Be prepared for many more "Jersey locals" to take this tour we're telling everyone about it.
