Our tour guide (Mike) was exceptional. His knowledge of the history of the area was phenomenal. It was a fun time despite the freezing cold weather and the food tastings were good too! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something different to do in the city (but dress warm or avoid going in the winter)! GREAT TIME!!

I've been referring everyone to this tour as well as your Village tour - both were excellent! A great value and very informative. As a Manahattan resident - it provides a wealth of information about local restaurants and history about the area. The Chelsea Market tour was great for people who like to cook and entertain! Our tour guide was excellent - very knowledgable about the food industry in general and he took us to some great places in the Meat Packing District - especially like the Gansvoort Penthouse for dessert!

It was wonderful. The weather was cold, just right for walking. The guide, Andre, was the greatest. He was insightful, witty, and full of New York spirit. He give us alot of history about the area, and had the patience of Job with some of the group. The sample food was sooooooooo good. We returned to the village, and bought from three of the merchants. We had a wonderful morning, we would recommend the tour to anyone who is coming to New York. We went back to pastry shop, the cheese shop and the pizza shop. It was a great experience, and we would do it again. David and Peggy Marsh, Tallahassee, Florida P.S. You should have seen the lines in the pastry shop on Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!

We did the tour of the East Village a few years ago. I recommended it to several people here in L.A. who took it and love it. The Chelse Market tour was just as wonderful. Our guide, who's name I don't remember, was wonderful. He had so much information to offer us. I will recommend this tour to all my friends planning a trip to NYC. Maybe you'll get a third tour going so we can do that one next time. Thanks John Frommelt

The tour was great. We got to see Chelsea Market which is not something the average out of towner would stumble accross on their own. Was fun to see how all the shops were run and sampled some yummy food. As the weather was cold and rainy, it was nice to spend a lot of the tour inside.

family of four from hawaii visiting NY for the first time

My family and I highly recommend this tour. My daughter found and booked this tour online and it was the best part of our week's stay in NY. We could have fumbled our way around Greenwich Village and wasted much time, but with Cindy's well organized and fun and informative tour, we thoroughly enjoyed walking about and learning the history of the village and tasting scrumptuous food. She guided us through quaint neighborhoods and showed us sights we could not have found ourselves. Thank you, Cindy, for giving us a great time - it went by so fast and you made it so much fun! We revisited some shops to buy gifts to take home. Julie Ishioka

i would have liked to have more historic/factual information about greenwich itself - no problem with the food side of things. this is probably unrealistic on a food tour. maybe you should also offer separate tours of different areas such as greenwich by architects/historians/actors much like LONDON WALKS does in the UK and PARIS WALKS in france. presenter (cindy) could have spoken a bit louder.

The tour was everything we expected. Our tour guide was great and she knew so much! the tour was a highlight to my New York Vacation and i think we truly got our money's worth and probably pulled a fast one on you! The tour was beyond worth the money and fun way to spend an afternoon. After the tour my mom and i revisited the places to purchase some of the delacasies we had tasted. We also returned to the villiage for dinner at one of out stops on the tour.

Freezing cold day yet we enjoyed every minute of the tour! We were able to see parts of Greenwich which we savored literally and figuratively. Our daughter enjoyed herself too. It was a highlight on our trip!

Had to leave the Tour

Hello, yes we did have a tour booked, we showed up, but had to leave the tour after a few minutes. The reason we had to leave was that our daugther was very sick, and it was to cold for her. We were wondering if we could get a refund of the our payment? Thank you, Annabelle Morgan

local couple looking for something different

Knowledgeable and very friendly guide. More outdoor selections from the meatpacking district and fewer from inside Chelsea Market would have been appreciated, especially since the Chelsea Market portion of the tour seemed to consiste of cheerleading for the Market's founder. In general, the celebration of gentrification in both the market and the meatpacking district seemed unreflective. That having been said, we enjoyed the tour very much.

Possibly too much time spent on all the restaurants opening times & specials (we were leaving the next day so this info wasn't much use). But we loved the stories about the area, architecture & history and our guide was friendly and funny. A very pleasant way to spend 3 hours and the food was great!

We had a great time and thought Andre was fabulous. We loved his sense of humor and his insight. The seven tastings were all great too! We recommended it to our friends that live in the city...They plan to attend shortly too!

I thought that this was the best thing that we did while in NYC. I am not a very touristy person and loved to get to know some of the local culture and try foods that are delicious along the way. The size of the group was perfect and the sights much better than the "normal" attractions.
