ENJOYED THE CULTURAL ASPECT OF THE TOUR
Fri, May 6, 05   11:00 AM MADMADDY Female Unspecified Combination Unspecified
We booked this tour on a whim and really enjoyed it. We liked all the cultural tidbits our tour guide related with enthusiasm. We were a little disappointed with the amount of food we got to taste. It was all delicious but we thought we would be trying more things than what we got. After the tour was over , we went hunting for a place to eat, which of course was one of the places we tried on the tour. We will definitely try the Chelsea Market tour next.

Enthusiastic, approachable and knowledgeable guide, tasty selection of goodies and useful information to take away all helped make this a thoroughly enjoyable experience - we headed back again next day and plan to stay locally next trip.

Would recommend it to food lovers

I enjoyed the review not only for the tasting and exploration of restaurants but for the history of the region. I found the host well informed, funny, observant( in watching out for us and making sure everyone kept together and had the opportunity of tasting) and did not take himself too seriously. For suggestions on how to improve: 1) I found the last eating place at a Kebab outlet out of place with the rest of the tour. 2) Perhaps make it shorter to 2 hours. 3) Include a meal - which would raise the cost though Overall I would recommend it to food lovers.

Fantastic

There were four women in our group and each one of us loved the tour. The guide was funny, very informative, knowledgeable, and loved what he was doing. Anyway, he did a good job making us believe he loved his job. The food was delicious and the variety was interesting. The only drawback was we didn't have enough time in our personal schedule to go back and explore the places we saw on the tour. Allow yourself time to go back and visit some of the shops after the tour is over.

A great combination of food sampling and history of the neigborhood and the surrounding area. I'd reccomend that you take the tour on your first day in the city so that you have as much time as possible to enjoy all the fabulous restaurants.

Great food tour! Pleasant and knowlegeable tour guide. The tastings were all timed just right. The village has never looked so good and now so different! Will definitely do this again.

We had a great time on the tour and learned some historical facts about Greenwich Village while sampling scrumptious food. We had Cindy as our tour guide and I must say she was quite entertaining as well as informative. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about what Greenwich Village has to offer, especially if you love to eat. Thanks again Cindy for a great time! Mario & Lori NJ

I live in New York and my Mother was visiting from London

The tour went on for longer than originally anticipated, but we were all having such a good time, nobody seemend to mind! Cindy, our guide, is a local New Yorker and it was wonderful to have an insider's viewpoint on the area. She was also very amusing, obviously enjoying herself and added tidbits of infomration many tour guides wouldn't bother with. I am seriously considering booking her for private tours when other people come out to visit me. It was one of the best $40 I've spent in the city.

Couple on mini-break in NYC spending the day with 2 native New Yorkers

This was one of the highlights of our trip! We can't wait to return to NYC to experience the Chelsea Food/Walking tour. Cindy, tour guide extraordinaire, was funny and really made the tour enjoyable and interesting and the food was fabulous. Two of our friends, native New Yorkers, joined us for the tour and they had a great time as well - and learned something about their city in the process. Cheers to all!

It was a great learning experience. Cindy was very entertaining. There are so many interesting storys within a few city blocks in the village. Things were brought to oue attention that we would have never noticed had we not taken the tour. I highly recommend it to anyone!

"Girls Trip to NYC" - 5 girls looking to explore Greenwich Village
Fri, Feb 25, 05   11:00 AM Anonymous Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Our only regret about this tour was that we didn't do it sooner!! We had such a good time, and learned SO much, that we realized we should have done it our first day in New York. We knew the "samples" were supposed to be enough for lunch - but quite frankly we didn't believe it. We ended up being full after only the first few samples! Do NOT eat breakfast before going on this tour!! Not only did we get a list of restaurants & shops to take home, but we learned about where to eat and why, as well as the history and culture of Greenwich Village. And our tour guide was HILARIOUS!! She was like a character out of Saturday Night Live and knew everything there was to know about the area. It wasn't boring for a second! It was the best thing we did on our entire trip!!

I would highly recommend this tour. There was alot of historical information supplied along with excellent food tasting activities. I would not recommend this tour for the winter. It was difficult to pay attention with my appendages feeling as though they would fall off at any moment. It is necessary to have a tour guide who speaks loudly. Otherwise you miss some good information.
