part of our annual visit to New York

the tour was the highlight of our trip to New York. Eric was exceptionally knowledgeable on everything and his enthusiasm for the Village was contagious. He mentioned a few places we want to visit on our own next time. We'd recommend this tour, without hesitation, to everyone. We're sure that even if you think you know the Village you'll find out lots you didn't know before.

I thought Todd was very knowledgeable--could not wait to come home and share information and the wonderful food we ate on the tour with my friends--have a co-worker coming to New York on Christmas Day who I shared this information with--he plans on checking it out for himself

An outstanding experience, this was the highlight of our trip to NY and not only do we have a long list of places to return and explore on our next trip, but we sampled some great food with good company and learned a lot. Our "tour guide" made the experience feel like we were taking a neighborhood stroll with a resident and getting the inside scoop you'd only hear from a local.

I highly recommend it. The tour guide was very informative and full of energy. I enjoyed Cindy very much! The food was delicious and it helped me to familiarize myself to the shops and food of Greenwich. I loved it!

Wow! What fun and very informative--not only regarding the food, but the area. Our guide, Cindy, was knowledgeable, fun, and entertaining. Because she lived in the Greenwich area, she was frequently given a hug or pat on the back by her neighbors. This was our first visit to the NY area and this type of tour really lends itself to making one feel welcomed, comfortable and enlighten. We can hardly wait to go back and take the Chelsea tour. Well worth the money!

Tour was unique and a good value...Jennifer was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly. The history of the area was as interesting as the food was delicious.

Great experience, delicious food and very knowledgeable guide. Remember to check the weather before you start the day and dress accordingly--its all outside! And bring an appetite you will be full by the end. Highly recommended. Its really something different to do and you discover a whole new world outside of the typical tourist places.

Tour was very good - started on time/guide was very knowledgeable and friendly - tastings were ample and well timed out - visited places that I would return to later on for complete meals - weather would definitly play a factor in tour development ( we had a nice day!!) Would reccommend tour ( and have already) and are planning on taking the Chelsea/Meat packaing one in the spring as well - Think about developing others in different city areas as well in the future.
