This was a great tour. Food was very good (almost too much)!!! Raheem, the guide was excellent providing a great deal of information about the history and the architecture of the area. The people in the various shops and food places we visited were very friendly and helpful. The printed guide was very helpful for deciding restaurants and shops to return to. The coupons were an added plus. I will certainly do one of the other food tours when I am back in NYC.

Food Tour of Greenwich Village

Our group of 4 (2 Mums, 2 daughters) had a most enjoyable food and walking tour last Friday with Curt who entertained us hugely and also introduced us to some very good food outlets as well as giving us loads of information on NYC and Greenwich Village in particular. His energy was incredible and his grasp of all our names most impressive! We would thoroughly recommend this tour especially with Curt!

I thought the greenwich tour was interesting from the historical and architectural point of view. Most of The food, I found, a little disappointing. The exceptions were the olive oil place, the Italian restaurant where we had the cauliflower dish and Murray's cheese shop.

Enjoyed the history of Greenwich Village as well as food. Food "samples" were so generous, we had to cancel dinner plans. Will recommend to others.

Excluding Pizza Roma, the other 7 stops were excellent. Our favorite stops were O and Co., Murray's cheese shop and Rocco's. Overall, it was an excellent tour. I would suggest replacing Pizza Roma with Amy's Bread.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tasting tour. This was my 3rd time and I would go again. I lost count of how many places we ate. We started out with pizza slices and ended up with cannolis (sp?) with cookies, cheeses, rice balls, meats and LOTS of other food in between. Amy, our tour guiide was well versed on Village life: where to dine, what to order, how they make it, etc. . She imparted insider knowledge on the area as we walked. And we had a celebrity sighting! Sign up now - its well worth the price.

There were seven in our group and we all enjoyed the experience. Our tour guide was exceptional and knew the area very well. Not only did we tast great food but we also got a history lesson of the area. All the restaurants we visited were very nice and really appreciated us being there. I would definitely do this tour again or one of their other neighborhoods. Don't miss out if you visit New York.

MUCH MORE than a walking food tour!

Upon our arrival, we were enthusiastically greeted by Curt, our tour guide. In he few minutes, he knew our names & where we were from. Throughout the entire tour he addressed our group of 14 by name. Amazing! His knowledge of Greenwich Village and NYC was incredible. The way he told the story & intertwined everything was amazing. A great sense of humor, so enthusiastic and entertaining. We certainly got our monies worth...and then some. We did this tour on a Sunday and there were plenty of shops & restaurants to visit. We never stopped eating. It began with pizza & ended with a cannoli. Delicious! Curt served us our food with style and never stopped talking...always engaging. Thank you Curt! A MUST DO tour when visiting NYC.

This tour was led by Curt -- a wonderful guide who was fun and very informative. Our group visited several places for snacks (cheese, pizza, olive oil and cannoli) and sat down for wonderful mac and cheese. We also heard about the history of the neighborhood and visited a local off-Broadway theatre. Highly recommended.
