I went alone but met fabulous people - it's a great thing to do solo

I couldn't possibly recommend this more highly. Our guide was fantastic, the food amazing, the stories and insider information wonderful and the variety of experiences on the tour were vast. It was a true "New York" experience, but not in a cheesy touristy way - in an "informed and educated" kind of way. You won't get this kind of experience walking around on your own, or on a regular walking tour. Putting the food and the walking together is genius!

I thought it was excellent in every respect and highly recommend it, though it would be fun to have a tasting at one of the MP district restaurants, outside of Chelsea Market. Very knowledgable and entertaining guide.

Actually I am a native New Yorker, who now lives in Los Angeles, I have recommended this tour to people that are visiting and decided when I came this time I would try it out myself. Greenwich Village I knew quite a bit about, but it was very enjoyable for everyone. Everyone that I sent on this tour loved it. I enjoyed our tour guide - thought she did a wonderful job - the weather did not cooperate but she was so pleasant and informative that it did not matter. I would recommend.

This was one of the best tours you can do. It gets you right into the neighborhood instead of riding through it. The mixture of neighborhood history, culture, architecture (and of course food) keeps you interested and makes the 3 hours fly by! I have recommended this tour to all my friends.

This was an excellent tour. We really got a chance to get insight on many of the restaurants and shops in the area. Our tour guide, Susan, was great-very pleasant personality and very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends.

We had a great time and enjoyed it enough to go back on our own. Our only regret was that we didn't do it earlier in our vacation so we could have had more time to spend there. Todd, our guide was full of information and a pleasure to be with.

Excellent tour and delicious food. Zora, our tour guide was very entertaining, gave us some interesting history and trivia of the area. Over half of our group was from NYC, a few grew up in the village. Zora incorporated this into the tour and made it very interesting and FUN. The only change I would make is to improve the Rest Room Stop. We stopped at Chumleys, which was a very interesting Speakeasy, but not the nicest of rest rooms. THANKS again it was enjoyable and worth the money. We all came home full, with maps and resturant names and addresses for future visits.

I had a great time! My group was all female, from Canada, Staten Island and me, from Singapore! The people in my group was very nice, warm and friendly! Our tour guide, Zora, was funny, friendly and great fun! I'm so glad I joined this tour! I have recommended it to my friend, who is a New Yorker! I feel that he'll have as much fun as I had! Thanks!

This is a wonderful tour & was the highlight of the trip. Walking lets you see so much more in detail than a bus or cab tour. The food was wonderful, varied and generous in servings. Our guide, Zora, was a wealth of info and so very pleasant to be with. She looked after us very well and we all had a great time. I would like to take the meat packing tour another time. Thank you so much for making our trip such a memorable one. Sandra Byers, Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

here alone on vacation and wanted to try something unusual

It was exceptional - the tour guide, Curt, was GREAT! And our group was fun (I ended up going for drinks and later dinner with some people I met on the tour) so it just felt like a roving party. The food was exceptional and the inside exposure to such interesting places was really a treat. Oops - I'm describing my Chelsea food tour experience and you want info on my Greenwich experience - which was also terrific (but a rainy day which was a bit of a bummer). Michael was a fun and very knowlegable tour guide and learning all that history was great. Both are FANTASTIC tours that I highly recommend. Really gave me a different picture of both locations and great insider info for where to go back to.

We recommend the tour very highly,our tour guide was outstanding he was very informative about the past history and the present of Greenwich Village. we only wish we would have taken it the first day in NYC, so we could have enjoyed some of the unique restaurants while on holiday.

We were very, very pleased with this tour. We had alot of plans that were outside of Greenwich Village, however, after taking this tour, all our meals and most of our outings for the remainder of the trip all took place in Greenwich Village. We ate at alot of the places we saw on the tour. We LOVED them all. On the last day we were there, we went back to Rocco's Pastry Shop, Italian speciality shop, the candy shop, the coffee shop and the cheese shop. We bought alot of goodies and brought them home with us (carried them on the plane!). When we returned home, we had some friends over that evening and we shared our "Greenwich Village Experience" with them. Everything was wonderful. We will be ordering from alot of these places for Christmas baskets. We HIGHLY recommend this tour. We hope to take it again next time we visit. We especially LOVED Trattoria Pasta (across the street from Murray's). The food was so good we felt like crying. I could go on and on, so THANK YOU for a great tour. Our guide was also awesome.
