I can't recommend this tour highly enough. Our guide, Susan, was the highlight, as she was able to fill us in on New York life, food, architecture and history and keep it interesting and fun. (The food was great too.) It was the perfect way to get to know at least a small part of New YorkCity.

The guide was excellent... funny and informative. I learned a lot about the area as well as seeing the sights. I know that we would have never explored this area on our own, but now we will definitely go back.

I thought all of the information was fun and informative. The tastings covered a wide variety and we enjoyed them all. Our guide was very knowledgable and did a good job of keeping the group together. I would (actually already have) recommended this tour to others visiting NYC.

First visit to NY

This was a really wonderful tour. Our guide "Kurt" was wonderful, animated, and well informed. He did a superb job of detailing the history of Nabisco building, the renovation process, and the current lease holder and how they fit into the vision of Chelsey Market place. In addition Kurt gave us a wonderful tour of the "Meatpacking District" and the current renovation of that area. He kept it moving without it feeling rushed and there was never a dull moment. I am not a "tour package" kind of gal but this was the only way for one to get a feel for the rich history and information on this exciting area in such a short period. I would recommend it to anyone and would do it again myself. Julia Bledsoe Reno, Nevada

I would highly recommend this tour. We had a wonderful afternoon touring Greenwich Village and our guide, Michael, was fantastic. We are looking forward to returning to the Village to check out some of the sights we learned about on the tour. Great job, thanks.

I enjoyed the tour and tastings. and would recommend it. Mike provided excellent history and "color." Only suggestion would be to tighten the route (it seemed we'd pass some stops only to return to them later).

Michael was the best! This was so much more than a food tour. He was a delightful host, informative, so connected to his neighbourhood. Learned so much about the history, architecture, social interactions, the restaurants...I just cannot say enough about this tour. I will go on it again. By the way - the best cannoli I have ever had. I have already been recommending this to New Yorkers I met & those at home.

We thoroughly LOVED this tour. Our guide, Michael was very entertaining. It was an absolutely wonderful way to intimately experience this little part of New York. We highly recommend this. Due to the length of the tour, it's best suited to teenagers and older.

Local couple looking for a way to entertain out-of-town friends

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 7. It was entertaining and informative. The only issue was that our tour guide was a little young and seemed to lack the depth of knowledge of other more experienced tour guides. Although certainly passionate about food, she got some facts wrong about NYC architecture and history. I'd make sure the tour guides were a little better trained next time. Otherwise a good time - thanks!

Excellent! Michael was the BEST guide I ever experienced on the very many tours I have taken in New York over the years. It was apparent how much he loved Greenwich Village. An extra, was meeting many of his friends along the tour route! This tour was one I will never forget and would recommend it to anyone in a NY second!!!!

The best part of the tour was the introduction to the history of Greenwich Village and how it got to be the way it is today. The food we sampled along the way was tasty and provides a good reason to go back and visit the Village again.
