out of state visitors wanting to learn about NY history

I had taken this tour one other time and enjoyed both experiences. The only comment I have is that the tour guide for my first experience seemed more knowledgeable of the neighborhood and this added a special dimension to the experience. I highly recommend it.

We'd been to the Village before and thought we knew it, but a whole new world opened up to us: food, history, culture, architecture...it was all there for the nibbling. Highly recommended for anyone who eats, or anyone who doesn't but enjoys new and fascinating experiences.

We took the Meatpacking tour earlier in the week and loved it. Again, excellent information on the local area from a true local. Food samples were quite tasty. This is another tour that I would take again and recommend to friends.

Most Excellent and Fun Food Tour. Our tour guide, Susan, was very informative and made the food tour fun and educational. She has a great voice to be heard on noisy NY streets,shared historical info and made our day great. We will tour again on our next visit to NY

two friends on a mutual birthday trip to NYC

Cindy, our guide, was interesting and informative, with a very nice personality. My friend and I were completely unfamiliar with the area prior to the tour; now we feel like we know enough to make enjoyable future trips. We especially enjoyed the history of the Chelsea Market and the meatpacking district. Cindy gave us a real feel for what the area was like in the past and how it is evolving. This is our second tour, as we took the Greenwich Village tour last fall. We both hope you will add to your tours eventually, perhaps to the Lower East Side? Chinatown? Little Italy? I have recommended your company's tours to others, as I think your tours are top-notch in every way!

The tour was fantastic and we visited several of the eating establishments later during our stay in NYC. All of them proved to be as good as they were represented on the tour. I will highly recommend this activity!

I ENJOYED THIS WALKING TOUR. I LIKED THE SNACKING AND TASTING OF LOCAL FARE PLUS LEARNING SOME INTERESTING FACTS AND SOME HISTORY CONCERNING THE AREA. I FELT THE TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE AND VERY PERSONABLE. I FELT IT WAS JUST LONG ENOUGH. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TOUR TO OTHERS.

I really enjoyed my tour of Chelsea and the Meat packing district. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and fun to listen to. However I would have enjoyed more outside and less in the market. I would have liked to see more of Chelsea and hear more of its history.

I thought it was a great tour. Cindy was an excellent guide, and the food was abundant and very good. I also went on the Greenwich tour with Rory and it was equally good. The food is even more abundant on that tour! Both tour guides were nice, helpful and knowledgable. I will tell anyone I know that is coming to New York to go on these tours.

Truly a highlight of our trip to NYC! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, witty, and charming -- he led us on a fascinating adventure of culture, architecture, and food! My teenage children (a boy-15 and a girl-13) were completely surprised to hear the stories of the Village, enjoyed tasting all of the food samples, and did not falter once on our three hour tour! And the food was fantastic! This tour (and our guide) are treasures of NY! This is a "must do" tour!

We had a great time touring the village, learning interesting facts about the history and architecture of this area. Wow! What wonderful foods we sampled! Our guide Zora ( I may not have the right spelling) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We enjoyed her liveliness. Our group consisted of people from all different area of the U.S. and a couple from Sweeden. What a great way to share cultural similarities!

At first, the tour guide discussed at length certain restaurants in the neighborhood which sounded alot like commercials. Later on, she discussed the neighborhood -- history, etc. -- in more detail. I think we could have done with less on the restaurants and more on the neighborhood. We really enjoyed the second half of the tour.

We had this tour on our first day in New York, which was a terrific start! Our guide was very informative and funny, and the foodtasting was nice. We also got recommendations of Greenwich restaurants, two of which we later visited and had further good "eating experiences". Thank you!

Local couple entertaining visiting family members

From a local perspective, we had a great time since we don't regularly hang out in the West Village (we live on the Upper East), and when we do, we inevitably get lost like everyone else. I think what was most effective about the tour was that the tastings supported the history of the neighborhood--the focus was on older, established restaurants and not on trendy newcomers. My visiting parents were overwhelmed by the variety and abundance of local foods and enjoyed the tastings, the "inside scoop" and the pace of the walking tour. This is definitely on my list of things to do when friends and family visit New York in the future.
