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.

We had a great time, learned a lot about Greenwich Village, and enjoyed some really good food. The "handout" was excellent and we will visit some of the recommended establishments when we come back to NYC! Andre was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and fun.

It was fun to visit all the different shops and restaurants and to meet the wide variety of tourists in our group. Our tour guide wqas very personable and informed. The food tastings were fun...and never enough since it was so tasty. I just wish we could have bought at each place since I was too tired to return to the shops after our tour. I would have loved to eat my "booty" on the way home. I look forward to doing this again.

We - a 73 yr old grandmother, a 41 yr old mom and a14 yr old son - shared a great morning of exploring Greenwich Village with Eric!! Lots of history and reccommendations! All three of us loved it! We would have paid more for more tastings, what we had was great!!! We just know there is more to be had!!! Thanks for a great time!!! We have only been home 5 days and we have already recommended the tour to many friends and family.
