6 friends going on a "girls day out "excursion

The tour was very interesting. Our guide had many wonderful personal stories to share along with the historical/cultural part of the tour. Unfortunately it was raining and cold and the tour went 3 1/2 hours instead of 3 . If it had been a beautiful day this would have been fine. Also, because it was a Saturday, the stores were mobed and it was hard to fit all of us inside to enjoy the unique features. I would suggest you cut the number of participants down to 8. That way everyone can enjoy themselves inside as well as hear the guide outside. We did eat at one of the restaurants after the tour and it was wonderful!! I would recommend this tour to friends, however, I would tell them to go in the spring! I will definitely be back to explore this part of New York again!

We really enjoyed the tour and found it very interesting. The tour guide provided much information along with being very entertaining. Of course, the samples of the delicious food was something to write home about!

Mike, our guide was excellent, not only from a knowledge point, but from a personality, patience and humor point. The food stops were great.

I learned a lot about Greenwich Village. I recommend this activity who wants to learn about the area. I just wished that there was not as many children on our walking tour.

I thought that our tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the Greenwich village area. He gave us some amazing facts about the area and knew alot of the folks we saw on the street. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to know about the history of this area. The only thing was it went very long and with kids that wasn't a good thing. Also the tastings were very small and an hour apart, our kids were hungry by 3pm. However, they did learn alot of history. THis is more of a history and culture tour than a food tasting really. We thought it was the reverse.

I had a great time! The tour guide (Cindy) was knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We enjoyed delicious food, learned about the Village and I was able to come back to the Village several days later, find my way around and enjoy more good food. I will definitely do the Chelsea and Meatpacking District tours next time I am in NY.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Kurt the tour guide was excellent. Plenty of samples of all kinds of food. We would never have thought to visit this area had it not been for the tour. Surprised by the piano bar Kurt recommended- yes it was full of men but they were all gay!- A truely memorable evening!!

This is the second time I have taken the Food and Culture tour; both times I have taken a guest. I would not hesitate to go again because I always learn something new and different about the Village. The guides are the best and the food is awsome. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to be more familiar with the Greenwich Village area.

This was one of the most enjoyable excursions I've been on in NYC. The guide was funny and energetic - the food was FANTASTIC! You won't be disappointed. Well worth the cost of the ticket!!! We'll do it again next year!

CT Family day trip -food and history are favorites!

The Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was a great experience! My husband and I took my dad as an early Christmas gift, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was terrific (the portions are generous samples), the tour guide was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor, and we learned a great deal. For those considering bringing an infant along, we brought our 6 month old in the backpack carrier, and he loved it! We had considered bringing the stroller, but in retrospect, we're glad we carried him, as some of the stores have some congested areas. My husband is still talking about the tour- he says the day combined his favorite things- great food, great history, and time with family! We hope to try the Greenwich Village tour in the future. Thanks again!

Well organised trip, guide friendly, informative and welcoming. Food samples were fabulous and varied, although it was a pity the bread shop had closed down. We took the trip on a Sunday and found the Greenwich area quiet with very few people around, yet the atmosphere was great. Have already recommended it to friends and family alike.
