I thought that our tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the Greenwich village area. He gave us some amazing facts about the area and knew alot of the folks we saw on the street. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know about the history of this area. The only thing was it went very long and with kids that wasn't a good thing. Also the tastings were very small and an hour apart, our kids were hungry by 3pm. However, they did learn alot of history. THis is more of a history and culture tour than a food tasting really. We thought it was the reverse.

I had a great time! The tour guide (Cindy) was knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We enjoyed delicious food, learned about the Village and I was able to come back to the Village several days later, find my way around and enjoy more good food. I will definitely do the Chelsea and Meatpacking District tours next time I am in NY.

This is the second time I have taken the Food and Culture tour; both times I have taken a guest. I would not hesitate to go again because I always learn something new and different about the Village. The guides are the best and the food is awsome. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to be more familiar with the Greenwich Village area.

Well organised trip, guide friendly, informative and welcoming. Food samples were fabulous and varied, although it was a pity the bread shop had closed down. We took the trip on a Sunday and found the Greenwich area quiet with very few people around, yet the atmosphere was great. Have already recommended it to friends and family alike.

The whole tour was fun and quite tasty. We liked the ample samples! We enjoyed our guide and the other tour participants. What a great way to be educated on "Village History". I have already recommended it ot others.

Andre was an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. He was knowledgeable, well-spoken, amusing, and made the three hour tour delightful. It was just the right mix of varied foods, walking, history, Greenwich Village trivea, and architecture. Your web site did not have a place to click the choice for "excellent" so I had to give it a "good" rating and it was better than that. Please make corrections to your web site.

We had a great time. The tour director was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent and we would go back to some of the stores visited on our own. We would recommend it to our friends. I rate it a 10 of 10.

four day trip from the U.P. of Michigan to the "big" city

Definitely the highlight of our four days in New York. We would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see, hear and taste the "real people" story about this very unique part of Manhattan. We'd love to do it again when it's a little warmer!
