We took the tour on Thursday, 3/10 and had a grand time. Cindi was our guide and her energy and sense of humor made for an informative and entertaining tour. We returned on Saturday to revisit the shops and eat more pizza! I have already recomended the tour to several friends and hope to return to take the Chelsea tour. Thanks! Ellen Engels

What a great experience! This tour offered so much more than amazing food. I loved learning about the area, architecture and hearing funny stories. I just wish there was something like this where I live. I'm so looking forward to doing this again in the future. Thanks for everything!!

The food we tasted was very good and our guide was very knowledgeable about the village. She told us great little stories about the neighborhood and made her own personal recommendadtions on where and what to eat.

Greenwich Village food tour

I found the review to be extremely interesting. It was not only limited to food, but it also gave a background of the East Village history. I found the combination of both extremely interesting. Later I went to the Wine Tasting, it was excellent. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends. It also gives you a nice selection of places to go back to in the Village. I went back to the Murray's cheese shop and purchased some cheese. As constructive criticism, I would add one more place in the Central Village. Also the guide should point out the location of the Wine Tasting (in SOHO) for those who would like to try it out. It is definitely worth it, particularly since they are New York wines.

Wonderful insider's view of unique neighborhood!

Our guide Todd was extremely well-informed and not at all shy about sharing his opinions. The corporate practice of paying for the tastings v. accepting freebies from vendors goes a long way to preserving the credibility of your recommendations. You completely satisfied the middle-aged history freak, the middle-aged world traveler, the 18-year-old Spring Breaker and the 13-year-old geek in our group. Eight thumbs up! Scoring tickets to "Spamalot" was an awfully close second, but you were the best part of our trip to NYC.

All four of us loved the Greenwich tour. Our guide clearly loves the neighborhood, and shared useful information and wonderful stories about the food, people, and places. His enthusiasm led us to return to one of the restaurants for dinner and to several of the stores for shopping later in our visit. We are veterans of walking tours in various cities (such as the architecture tours in Chicago and the history tours in London), and we all agreed that the tour was a a great part of our trip to NYC.

Awesome and unconventional family event - Enjoy!

This was a great family event. and worth every penny! We have raved about it to family and friends. It was very interesting and informative and capitaved the attention of my 11 year old as well as my 19 year old. My husband was even impressed. Our tour guide made the tour so interesting with his knowledge and enthusiam about the Village. The shop and restaurant owners we met were friendly and made the tour that much more special. If our travels take us to New York again we will surely spend our time in Greenwich. Thanks again Todd!

Enlightened Tour

As a New Yorker, one sometimes does not take advantage of sights and sounds of native city. This tour opened a new appreciation for the Village, its shops, streets, buildings, restaurants and history. Cannot wait to return and re-explore the many sights pointed out to us by our excellent tour guide, Cindy. Thank You.
