This was an interesting way to get to know a bit of history about the Village and to get a glimpse of its many offerings. Food tastings were extremely rich, each and every one of them. People who put tour together must have had iron stomachs. Highlight of tour was olive oil shop - very educational. Cindy, the tour guide was educated about the area, but was condescending to one of the women on the tour and made some politically incorrect comments that made me very uncomfortable. As tour guides go, she was fair at best.

We just returned from NYC for a quick 3-night anniverary weekend, and this food tour was one of the highlights of the trip. Our tour guide, Sefra (sp?), was AWESOME! She had just the right mix of humor and information to keep us engaged the entire time. The tour itself exceeded our expectations, and we plan to do another tour with this company next time we are in the city.

This is the second time that I have done this tour, this time bringing my brother and his wife. I was so happy to do it again and they were super enthusiatic about it as well. We are all people that like food and enjoy learning. This is what this tour provides. The tour guide was super charismatic and friendly as well as knowledgable not only about the specific stops we made but also about different foods' production, architecture, local history, and made great recommendations of other places to check out in the city. The foods were awesome and we definitely did not need to eat more afterwards....although we did. Could not recommend this enough for anyone mildly interested in food to those in the industry (as I am). Couldn't be better! Can't wait till the next time...maybe trying one of the other locations...maybe not.

We took two other tours that were great. This one seemed to be a commercial for many restaurants that we didn't eat at and we were taken to many locations, given a talking to, and then redirected without any purpose other than to looks at buildings (I guess). We left early and had a slice at Joe's Pizza.

Friends told me about these tours and how much they enjoyed them. They were right on! Our guide Burt was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend these tours and look forward to taking another one.
