Our tour guide, Heather, was great! History about the area and the different restaurants was awesome for someone visiting the area for the first time. Would highly recommend the tour for anyone looking to learn about the area and who wants to taste some of the amazing food choices around. Loved the booklet with reviews of different restaurants in the area and recommendations on what to get from the different places.

Greenwich Village is a tasty place!

We always suspected that Greenwich Village would offer a feast for the eyes and stomach. Now we know that it is true. My son and I truly enjoyed our stroll through the past and present day village. It seemed at first that the portions were going to be a bit scimpy but after the 8th or 9th sample we were wondering whether we would be able to last until dessert, but holy cannoli, it was worth waiting for! We will definitely return to the village and recommend the tour to other visitors. A special thanks to Barri for making our tour so much fun!

Besides the excellent food tastings, it was wonderful to learn something about the area, its culture, its inhabitants. Our guide was well informed and shared information so enthusiastically. She obviously enjoys conducting the tours. This tour gave me a nice snapshot of Greenwich Village that I would not have gotten any other way. Now I know what cannoli is and I love it!

Our tour guide (Kerianne ?) met us promptly at our designated place. The tour mainly stayed around Bleecher Street and included 9 tastings : a pizza slice, a chocolate cookie, a teeny cannoli, olive oil and bread, a 3 cheese sampler, 2 types of meat products , a small cauliflower dish, and a dish with three small appetizers. Though it was 90 degrees the day we went, our guide was good about trying to keep us in the shade even when we ate on the sidewalk (which we did for 5 out of the 9 places), so it was not too bad temperature-wise. Our guide was friendly and informative and the tour matched its write-up, but I felt what was done could have been done in 2 hours, not 3+. Some of the stuff we did seemed like filler...to kill time while the earlier tour group was finishing before we went on to our next tasting. The guide talked A LOT about real estate and what things cost, and I guess some people might find that interesting. I would prefer a tour that was more a pure food talk. I know, I know : the on-line description said, "Learn about the history, culture, architecture and local entertainment offerings that make Greenwich Village so unique from the rest of New York City. " I'm just saying that i wish there was something more about the food than all this other stuff...which I have seen before on walking tours that were JUST about culture and history, etc. So, for someone who wants it all in one package, this is a cute tour that gives a TASTE of food and a skosh of culture/history. For people who want a food focus, this really isn't it.

Our tour guide was Bert, and he was so much fun. I appreciated his sincere love of food and descriptions at each food stop because they were detailed without being snooty. He REALLY likes his job and is very good at it! The food provided was high quality and way more food than I would ever eat for lunch. I wish I had not eaten breakfast! Excellent value for $50. Would definitely do this again and recommend to family visiting from out of town and to locals as well!

We so much enjoyed our food walking tour with Burt. He was very knowledgeable of the food and the area. He was very considerate and ensured that we stayed hydrated and dry. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety and portions of food we experienced. Will be booking another tour during our next visit to New York.
