The tour guide was the best

Sephra was a wonderful tour guide! It should be billed as a food tour with a good bit of comedy thrown in. I would take a tour with her again anytime, even one titled "Tour of the Most Boring Bedroom Communities of New Jersey". In terms of the food sampled, it was uniformly delicious. I especially liked the inclusion of a restaurant called "Home". I would have a liked some more information on what criteria was used to pick these places - did the tour company send food tasters out and pick the best? Were they picked for their story/history? Or just places that cut the company a good deal?

Our guide, Bert was a great ambassador for Greenwich Village. He is obviously a foodie and was very entertaining and knowledgeable. There was plenty of food, so much that we ate pretzels for dinner!

The tour was fantastic. We will tell all our family and friends to book one or more Food Tours when they are planning a trip to New York. Bert was fantastic. He gave us wonderful information about the special foods and about the history of the area. Thank You so much for a great tour.

Our guide was Sephrah! I had taken my friend for our 23rd birthday, the tour guide, was unbelievably awesome! The food was amazing and the whole experience was something I am looking forward to doing again.

Fabulous tour! Barri was an excellent communicator particularly with respect to the history of the village! As she stated...I want you to feel that you are excited to dine and explore the area! ...On my next trip to NYC, I will definitely go to many of the fun places to dine/buy! Did I mention that the food was scrumptious!!!!

Great way to start a visit to New York.

We did the tour the first day of our 7 day stay in NY. It was a great start to the visit and gave us some places to return to for meals later on in our visit. The food was great and by the end of the tour you had completed a 'meal'. The focus is the food but with some history of the district. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

The tour was tops!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our guide Bert did a great job. He was informative and entertaining. We were traveling with our teenage kids who had never been to NYC before and they loved it as well. They ranked the tour as their 2nd favorite activity in NYC. Attending a Broadway play only narrowly beat them for first. I would highly recommend the tour and will take another the next time we're back!

A great way to learn about NYC!

Our family had a wonderful time. We toured the west village and our guide (Bert) was fantastic! I have teenage children and it can be hard to find things that appeal to all of us. They loved it!! They remembered some of the interesting facts that they learned and they really enjoyed the tastings! A great way to spend a few hours in NYC!

$26 for two aperitifs was a bit steep. Recommend you drop the bar from your walking/eating tour. Tips might improve.
