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

2 local New Yorkers and 2 out-of-towners

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!

Todd was the perfect mix of friendly and informative. In not great weather we all had a great time. There is something wonderful about being introduced to a section of New York we rarely visit. Of course we will return to the area on our own to enjoy a full meal as the snacks provided left no room. We all agreed to plan the Chelsea/meatpacking district tour soon. Thanks Diane

College class from California in NY for Theatre trip
Tue, Jan 11, 05   11:00 AM Anonymous Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Being a college professor with a class of my students visiting New York for a theatre trip, I was attracted to your tour because I was interested in having my students learn about the history of Greenwich Village. Unfortunately, the tour concentrated much more on introducing the tourists to the food places and not that much on the historical aspects of the Village...perhaps it was the particular Guide we had. Maybe a different guide would have satisfied me more. I must say that the food samplings were wonderful. I will proabably sign up again next year and hope that the history will be more emphasized. Great idea, though, now refine it...thanks!

The guide was great and knowledgable. He knew a lot of history and was always animated enough to be interesting! The food that I tasted was excellent, and the restaurants we visited looked top notch (and were surprisingly affordable for Manhattan!). I took my wife back that night and we ate at a great little Italian restaurant. I would highly recommend this to foodies or others!

We thought the tour was fabulous and enjoyed the snacks along the way. We are recommending the tour to family that are coming to NY on holiday next month. Before we left, we actually went back and ate at several of the restaurants.

I would recommend this tour to anyone going to New York and even the people who live there now. I will be trying probably atleast one of the tours each trip I take to New York from now on. It is the best way to really get to know the city and the wonderful things it has to offer.

weekend trip for young adults

This trip is highly recommended. We enjoyed every minute. Our next weekend adventure will include a day trip on our own to Greenwich Village. Had we not taken the tour our view of the Village might be very different. The tour provided information and fun from a locals perspective. Make sure to wear your sneakers and weather permitting clothes. We were soaked in the rain but still enjoyed the tour.

It was great. I am sure we will do it again, when we are in the city with a different group. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a side trip of the city.

I would highly recommend this delightful tour with Cindy. She dispelled all my pre-conceived ideas about New York and its natives. In spite of the January chill, Cindy created a warm jovial atmosphere as she introduced us to the charms of the Village. The variety of foods, ambiance, and places, blended with the history and wit of the guide created quite a delightful memory for us.
