Father's Day Gift (my mother and father went)

I highly reccomend the tour, I gave the tickets to my Father as a Father's Day gift and they both loved the tour. The food was great and they found out a lot that the "naked" eye wouldn't about The Village. They can't wait to go back and try some of the resturants they encountered along thier travel.

I found an ad on the web for the Foods of New York. Considered it to be different than most tours offered. It was well worth the time. Mike was extremely knowledgeable of the area's history and just what made, and still makes, the Village The Village. His little insights made us want to return for further investigation of the restaurants and other things offered. The food stops on the tour were a good cross-section of offerings. It also helped us orient ourselves to the streets for our return visit for dinner. The tour was one of the top highlights of our visit to NYC. - Highly recommended!

Even though my friend and I live locally and grew up in the NY-NJ area, we saw, tasted and learned about things we might neve have done otherwise. It was great!

Michael was a wealth of knowledge, personable and a real Greenwich Village character. We loved his personal stories that went with the tour. Our group rated 6 of the 7 food samplings as excellent. We thought it was definitely worth the price of the ticket and I've already recommended the tour to my daughter who lives in the city, but "is confused by" Greenwich Village. We loved it. On my next trip up, I'll try the Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour.

2nd time around and it was enjoyable. First time was in the winter and was just the right length. In the summer with the eat it went a little too long. Suggestion: when you get to the speakeasy, stop and let everyone buy a beer (did the last time we did the tour) and take a 15 minute break.

Very interesting and fun. I felt slightly uncomfortable going into establishments at noon when customers were eating just to take a look around. I would recommend this tour to others.

This was a very nice tour. The gentlemen that did our tour was very knowledgeable and really knew what he was talking about you could tell he was really from the area because people on the street knew him by name and would say hi to him I thought that was great. The food items were great it was alot of stuff I haven't heard of and my 16 year old son was even up for trying the items. You were sure full when it was over. All the places we stopped everyone was very nice. My favorite part was the speak easy. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting your area. That wants to know anything about the Greenwich area. Thanks, Sheila Harness Elkhart, Indiana

Very good Tourguide -- he knew his "stuff". It would have been nice to have spent just slightly more time outside of the Chelsea Market in the local neighborhood.

Food was excellent and represented about 80 % of the activity. Guide was friendly and kept the pace. I wish I had learned more about the architecture, perhaps some of the food stops could be skipped. A few good restaurants/shops to explore on the next visit.

Overall we enjoyed the tour. Our guide Cindy was peppy and friendly, and many of the items tasted were interesting and different, but not all (the half pizza slice was only OK but my family disagrees-they loved the pizza !). The noise of the city made hearing all the tour difficult, and I personally would have appreciated more historical context (i.e. more about how Greenwich Village developed, the various peoples who have come through the area). The heat was a bummer and we began to sag with 45 minutes to go. All that said, it was an experience worth having, and I'd recommend it to my friends.

The walking tour was fabulous. The history that we learned about New York and Greenwich Village was something we will never forget. The next night we ate at one of the restaurants on the tour, Pesce Pasta. It was awesome...

We had a wonderful time! Mike was very informative and seem to know everyone and their pets in the Village! We skipped breakfast and met with the group at 10:30 am. We had plenty to eat. We even stayed in the Village after several recommendations for dinner. We ate dinner at "Noi" which had the best authentic Italian food! Our family would recommend this tour to anyone who would like a very personal and up front tour of beautiful Greenwich Village.
