Took Village tour 3 years ago, jumped on the Chelsea tour as soon as I returned to NY. Todd does an excellent job as a local resident of the area. We felt as though we were being shown the area by a friend. My blind companion enjoyed Todd's articulate and visual discriptions. I'll be back.

Fabulous introduction to Chelsea market and wide variety of food tastings. Great history of the meatpacking district and how it will change in the coming future.

it was a great deal, we had gourmet food like lobster bisque. a unique way to experience the city, in a up and coming neighbourhood! interesting to see the forces of gentrification in action.

It was wonderful. Our guide Michael was incredibly knowlegable and made the tour interesting and funny. Michael was full of several stories, funny jokes and historical facts. Plus he passed out good information on places to eat. We had a great time and would love to do it again.

I have told at least 5-6 people since I have returned home-what we did and how much fun it was. My daughter lives in Brooklyn and commented that she could go to the Village tons of times and still not frequent the places we did nor learn about the history of the area. She absolutely loved it. I have enbarked on a 2nd career and am earning a culinary degree from Kendall College in Chicago. We both had a blast and I need to say that Cindy our guide was absolutely Excellent. You can tell she loves the city and loves what she is doing. I would recommend this tour a million times over--it truly reveals the heart of the city!!!!

I enjoyed the historic portions, wonderfully narrated by Mike, not readily found on tour books. Restaurant previews were especially good for later returns, Mike was very efficient in keeping the group's attention. I have recommended the tour to friends. Thank you.

Thoroughly recommend it! best walking tour I have been on and I have travelled extensively all over the world - always choose the walking tour option and this was just fantastic - probably on a par with Paris Walking Tours

Great way to see Greenwich Village. The tour guide was a local of some 25 years in the area. He provided historical and architectural information as well as some of the current local gossip. And of course, the introduction to local eateries and food shops was tremendous! I felt as if I knew Greenwich Village better than any of the other neighborhoods I had visited in NY.

Outstanding! Our lead guide Cindy grew up in the Village and has lived there most of her life; her casual style and her training as a professional theatre performer commanded the group’s full attention. All the eatery shopkeepers love her and we enjoyed the extra attention. Our other tour with Todd in the Chelsea Food Market was also outstanding. By contrast, for Sunday we had also booked an eating tour with Big Onion Tours in the Lower East Side. As a crowd gathered at the meeting place I inquired about the size of the group; they do 35 customers per guide and consume part of the tour time collecting payment from that many people. Needless to say, we walked away.

We really enjoyed the entire experience. Cindy was very fun and informative. All of the food stops were great. We have already told everyone that asked about our trip how much fun your tour was. We will definitely try the Chelsea tour next year.

It was wonderful. We got our money's worth on the samples alone. The handout is super and we plan to use it on subsequent trips. I would love to do this again in a different area of NY.
