We had a great time on the food tour. Our tour guide, Zora, was very engaging, and it really made it a fun experience. The food selections had a great variety, and we hadn't tried most of them before. We ended up visiting one of the restaurants from the tour afterwards. We'd highly recommend this to anyone looking to visit New York.

Seemed like a lot of New Yorkers who had out of town visitors

Our tour guide was great but I just wish there was a little more historical points of interest.

weekend get-away from Ohio

On a scale of 1-10 I rate this tour a 7. It was advertised as a cultural tour along with an eating tour. Would have enjoyed more history re: the Village and perhaps a more ethnic food tasting experience. Andre did a good job.

2nd trip to New York, four women wanting something neat to do

It was relaxing, fun information, the food was great. Loved those Rice Balls. Went back to Murray's cheese shop before I left New York so that I could share the tastes at home. Fun way to spend the afternoon.

Seattle couple interested in food and architecture/history

Food part of tour was great, but I really was hoping for a lot more architecture and history. I know that's not what it's billed as, but the tour guide I overheard on the street last winter (which convinced me to sign up) was extremely knowledgeable about the buildings, etc.

I enjoyed the activity; I would have liked to spend less time in the Chelsea market itself, and perhaps have a tasting at one or more of the local new restaurants. The market and its architecture are, indeed, interesting, but perhaps varying the tour with some other vendors outside the market would enhance one's knowledge of the meatpacking district. I, however, enjoyed the tour as it opened my eyes to a new, exciting and interesting neigborhood. I liked our guide because he displayed lots of enthusiasm and knowledge and was eager to please the participants on the tour. I hope in time the tour will be expanded to include more restaurants outside the market as well as visits to the interesting new shops and boutiques; ie Stella McCartney's store. We were standing outside the store (McCartney's), could we, as the group, possibly have gone inside for a few minutes? It looked interesting and empty so they may have accomadated us by showing us the layout and styles of the store. I expect to return to the area on my own; something I would not have done had I not taken this tour. Thanks; how about a tour in Brooklyn or parts of the Bronx that may be diamonds in the rough?

The Greenwich Village food tour was the first thing we did during our 4 day visit to the city. Not only was it interesting and tasty, it really gave us a feel for how to get around the Village. We returned to shop and eat later in our trip. Many thanks to our guide, Mike. He was very knowledgeable! Next trip, we will try a food tour of another area. We highly reccommend this tour.

enjoyed it but was delayed at first stop as they were not ready for us, so we got a bit hungry and had to separate from the group in order to get a snack; after that, it was much better

Kurt was great fun....had excellent knowledge of area and the Market in addition to a terrific sense of humor. Seemed to enjoy what he was doing. Food selections were very good. Have already recommended to others.

Four girlfriends from California, wanting to "experience" Greenwich Village

Our guide, Cindy, was VERY outgoing, fun and knowledgeable. She knew the area well and shared lots of information about both the Village and NYC. We enjoyed the varied tastings and looks inside some of the restaurants. This tour was recommended to me, and I would definitely recommend it to friends planning a visit to New York.

Single person on business with some leisure time. First trip to NY.

An excellent way of seeing part of New York through a local community. I liked the area so much that I returned twice to have dinner in restaurants listed on the tour. I would very much have liked to do the Meatpacking district tour as well but had insufficient time. I will definitely sign up for this if I return to New York. I will be recommending the tour to friends and colleagues.

We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour and have already recommended it to everyone we know in the US. I think it would be especially useful to those who live in or near New York, or those who visit regularly - they will be best able to make use of the recommendations for purchasing produce or eating in the many restaurants. The rest of us just have to taste as much as we can and envy those people who have regular access to Greenwich Village!

At first i was a bit hesitant, but once Cindi started the tour, i was completely amazed. I enjoyed all the history she has shared with us. She was a riot. We visit the city once a year and this is something we would like to do again.
