A personal look at Greenwich Village

This is a must see if you have ever had any interest in the history and people of the Village. Our guide was entertaining an told us many interesting stories from the past. The food was fantastic. My husband and I can't wait to return to NYC so we can sit and enjoy the food and atmosphere of Greenwich Village. Thank you Todd for the special attention.

Our tour guide was amazing, his knowledge and expertise of the New York area and it's history captured all our attentions. More food than we expected was provided for our tastes, so delicious and memorable. I would recommend this tour in a heart beat. Thank you.

Chelsea/Meatpacking District Tour
Sun, Jul 23, 06   11:30 AM JeanneBuck Female 30-39 Local Unspecified
Good tour and excellent guide. Most of the time was spent in the Chelsea Market, a place I wouldn't have necessarily known about had I not taken the tour. The tastings were tremendous, however, they were a little "dessert heavy." I would have preferred more tastings that offered more choices in food. The best tasting was the salt tasting - I never knew that salt could be so varied. The tour guide's knowledge of the area was top notch - I especially enjoyed getting to know more about the meat packing history and the initiative to save the skyway. This is the best tour if it is raining outside since most of the time is spent inside the Chelsea Market.

A Taste of Greenwich with a side of life
Sun, Jul 23, 06   11:00 AM nmmowry Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Our guide took us on a "tasteful" tour of the Greenwich area. The tasings were a wonderful variety of the oferings in the area. The information and history received along the way was like icing on the cake. There was no way that we could have experienced half of what we did if we would have opted to try it on our own. The 3 hours went quickly. No better way to get the feel of Greenwich...

Great way to spend time in NYC!

My husband and I loved everything about the tour: Chelsea Market, the walk in the meatpacking district, the history, the group and especially our knowledgeable, fun-loving guide and the food. We are definitely foodies and the others on our tour seemed as appreciative. We frequent NYC but had never visited Chelsea Market or that neighborhood so we very much enjoyed getting to know it. We had never seen an entire neighborhood being revitalized to such an extent and found that to be inspiring!

great time on tour
Wed, Jul 12, 06   11:30 AM Janmcnaught Female 50-59 Combination Unspecified
Almost felt like it was a bit long. I think part of it iwas because it was hot and humid. Would have been nice to have built in a little time to make purchases at the individual restaurants/bakeries. Liked the variety of samples as well. Maybe the part about the architecture l'd have rather replaced with more time to make purchases.

Pricey but decent

Tour guide and food were great, note that the tour incorporates a portion of time on the areas architecture (over half the tour). The eating we did though, was great.

One of the best tours we have been on
Fri, Jun 23, 06   11:30 AM mjamarino Female 50-59 Unspecified Unspecified
We were on the 11:30 tour June 23, 06. Our tour guide Kirt was very knowledgeable, and had as much fun as we did on the tour. Enjoyed very much and have recommended this tour to others. We are originally from New York and was back visiting, and we realized we never would have seen this much of this area on our own. When we come back up for a visit we will go on another tour with you. Thank you Jen and Mike

A tasty and informative way to see the Village
Sat, Jun 17, 06   3:00 PM Votava Female 50-59 Unspecified Unspecified
I have already used my new found knowledge by providing a restaurant recommendation to friends who will be visiting NYC this weekend. I think the tour could be improved upon by offering more tastes (could be as small as a spoonful) of food from the restaurants. In my opinion there were too many sweet tastes (cookies, nuts, canoli). Also it would be very nice to have paired a glass of NY state wine with the cheese from Murray's. The stop at Aphrodesia should be eliminated - it is too much of a stretch to include this shop in a food and cultural tour. Also it was puzzling that at least half of the restaurants we were given on our list of 36 were not mentioned or pointed out to us. I do plan to take the tour of the Village and Soho and the Chelsea Market tour on future visits to NYC. Thanks.

Outstanding Tour

For people who are not familiar with Greenwich Village, this is the perfect tour. It gives you a chance to see the local area and taste the foods that are avaliable at the local stores and restaurants. My wife and I thoroughly enjoy everything we ate. The tour guide "Susan" could not have been any better. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. I will recommend this tour to my friends here in New Orleans on their next trip to New York.
