Activity was excellent and kudos to Curt who did a spectacular job guiding, feeding and amusing the ten participants. We have recommended it to others here in Rye and given them the address of the tour agency. I would try to arrange for additional bathrooms if possible. Waiting on line for the two we did see was quite time consuming.

Enjoyed the mix of food and local history. All of the places we were taken to were of the highest quality and distribution of food. Tour guide was very friendly and bubbly and good information for the area. On our next visit to New York we would defintaly revisit this area and investigate the shops / food moreso. We would highly recommend for others to go on the tour.

we took this tour after hearing about it from my sister & brother-in-law. my husband & i are not typically tour attendees. we don't enjoy being shepherded about, and we have found our past tour experiences to be less knowledge/experience-sharing and more selling. but we completely enjoyed our experience in the chelsea market with curt -- he was knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. we were pleasantly surprised to be given real portions of food to try from the various purveyors, and to learn the history of the market & the area to boot. we would certainly recommend this tour to others, we'll take the greenvich village tour the next chance we get, and we're giving the tour as a present to my mother & her husband. how's that for a glowing recommendation?

We absolutely loved the tour! It was a lot more than I expected! I loved learning about the city and after fearing it would be too much food, found it was perfect! The weather was horrible but our guide was so fun that nobody cared. He had so much knowledge and had everyone laughing. I can't wait to do the Greenwich tour next.

the tour was very good. Our guide, Curd, did an excellent job, everything was very well prepared and taken care of. The food offered by the places selected was first class and delicious. e.g. the best marmalde I have ever eaten was at Sarabeth`s, the lobster bisque was also exquisit as well as the italian food. I also enjoyed the look into various restaurants in the meatpacking district which definitely gave me an idea of where to go for dinner, Thank you very much for this quality tour = value for money, what unfortunately can no longer be taken for granted, nowadays. As soon as possible I´ll join the Greenwich Village off the beaten path tour. See you. Rosemarie Kolb

It was wonderful, the tour leader Sindy was enthusiastic and well informed and known. We found out the history of all the establishments we visited as well as a number we did not get to! Delicious food, an interesting lesson in local history and plenty of laughs.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, was fun, informative and very considerate. Despite the freezing cold temperatures (14 degrees), the entire group enjoyed our 2 1/2 hour Greenwich Village experience. I'm planning in taking my husband once the weather warms up!!

Eric was great. Tour was interesting. Weather was Freezing. We were glad most of the tour was indoors. Food was good. Tour of the Market itself was fascinating. I would definately recommend the tour in warmer weather.

Everyone in our group LOVED the tour. What a wonderful new discovery in Manhattan! Curt, our tour guide, was fantastic and so informative. The food was awesome and the three hours just flew. I have already recommended it to everyone I've seen since we returned home. We will definitely spend the whole day in the area on our return trip next year.

We had done the West Village tour last spring and I found that one a little bit better. For one reason - you get to try more food! I didn't think we got a very good sampling of restaurants and I could have done without the stop at the B&B.

The food tour was clearly one of the best things that we did in New York City. Not only did my wife and I thoroughly enjoy it, but so did our 11 year old son. The various restaurants and shops welcomed us and seemed pleased to be able to share food items. We have visited NYC on several occasions, but this was the first time that we actually were able to see how "regular New Yorkers" live. After the tour was over, we immediately went back to one of the pastry shops and enjoyed additional treats! We look forward to returning to Greenwich Village and spending more time at some of the restaurants and shops that we were introduced to. By the way, our tour took place on a cold and windy Sunday in January. We dressed VERY WARMLY, and our guide was nice enough to do most of the talking inside, rather than outside. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes to eat and who is interested in learning more about NYC.

A friends mom told me about the tour and said it sounded wonderful. we had no idea how great it really would be. Even though it was pretty cold we had a great time eating our way through the village. We learned some great history and we have already told all our friends who couldnt believe some of it. After the tour we walked back through all the places and ate again!! Great Job! Can't wait to do the other one

The walking/tasting tour was amazing. We learned really interesting things about Greenwich Village, concerning its architecture and history, that we never would have known had we not taken this tour, even though half of us are from the NYC. In addition, the restaurants we visited were perfect -- from the pizza place to the bakeries to the cheese shop to the meat store to the turkish restaurant. These restaurants, along with the local shops we visted, all have something significant about them, like their age or their uniqueness, and are on the tour for a good reason. Lastly, our tour guide, Cindy, was fantastic and made the tour worth recommending to everyone I know (and I did). This tour is definitely for New Yorkers as much as it's for tourists.

We had a wonderful 4 days in NY,we were in a TV audience, went to a Broadway play, shopping, carrriage ride thru Central Park and other sightseeing, but the highlite of our trip was our 3 hour "Foods of NY" tour in Greenwich Village. Our tour guide Jenny was very gracious and full of interesting information, not only about foods and resturants but also about the history and architecture of the Village. The many food tastings the tour provided from many of the resturants, pastry shops, chocolate factory and cheese shop, pizza shop etc. were outstanding. Go hungry, you will not need lunch. We spent the remainder of the day returning to many of the stores, resturants and pastry shops we visted on the tour. We went back to one of the resturants for dinner that evening. We will definitely go on the Chealsea Market tour on our next visit and would even like to re-do this tour. This tour was excellent!
