Learned lots of new stuff although I have lived in nyc for 15yrs! Loved learning the history. Susan was excellent, and I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was that we were able to taste- excellent choise of restaurants!

A delightful, informative walk through the Village
Fri, Oct 16, 09   1:00 PM ElKazanjian Unspecified 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The four of us, two women and our husbands have been to Greenwich Village many times on our visits to New York. But this was the first time we thoroughly enjoyed walking through, leisurely stopping at places, looking into windows, meeting shop keepers, tasting different foods, learning about the history of the neighborhood an New York, and generally having a good time. Our tour guide, Sephra, was well informed, humorous, provided all kinds of information about places, buildings, restaurants, where to eat, places of interest, and people who live in the village. Because of her we later came back and ate at The Commerce Restaurant (good Sunday Brunch), and enjoyed an outstanding performance of Judith Ivey at the Cherry Lane Theatre. We later also frequented other places on our own, and felt like we really knew the neighborhood. If I moved from San Francisco, I would probably move to Manhattan, and live in the village. Sephra was a terrific guide--make sure she stays with your organization. She was a bonus. Elise Kazanjian

We've already recommended this to our friends, and even gone back to two of the 4 of the places highlighted on our tour! The Ricotta Cheesecake at Bellavitae was the best we've ever had. We bought coffee from Porto Rico Importing, Co. and have already made some in a brand new French Press! We got some noodles from Rafetto's and can't wait to make them. Overall, This was one of the highlights of our trip. We hope to take one of the other food tours when we return!

We had four days in NYC and this tour had been recommended to us. MAKE SURE YOU DO IT even if it means you miss some of the other more traditional sightseeing. Walking around Greenwich Village will give you a sense of the real New York and the restaurants that real New Yorkers rate. We tasted some fantastic food, met some of the chefs and laughed all the way round with our tour guide who had a great sense of humour. Our tour guide was Sephra (a trained pastry chef) so was more food focused that history and acrhitecture but that suited us fine!

Take the tour only if you enjoy food tasting

Overall, I had a good time on the Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour and the tour guide was very comical. I really enjoyed tasting the various foods on the tour (some food tasting stops were better than others though) and the tour did a great job of accomodating a vegetarian diet. If you enjoy food tasting and plan on revisiting the Greenwich Village area during your trip, then this is a really good tour to take because the tour guide gives you restaurant recommendations. However, if you are taking the tour to learn about the culture/history of Greenwich Village, then I would recommend taking another tour because I didn't learn very much about the area. Although this is a 3 hour tour, a lot of the time is spent waiting for the tour guide to go into the restaurant and bring out the food to the group. Also, I was hoping to explore more of the Greenwich Village area, but you basically stay on the same street during the tour. I think this tour is overpriced for what it is.

Knowledgeable leader and great tastings.
Fri, Sep 18, 09   12:00 PM kmcampbell Unspecified 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The Greenwich Village tour offered a wealth of information about this neighbourhood along with some delicious tastings. The tour was extremely concentrated in a small section of the Village, and we would have liked to travel a bit farther - it seems that standing still is more difficult than walking! While we thoroughly enjoyed the tastings from the various restaurants and proprietors on the tour, we would have appreciated being able to wander through more of the establishments for a greater appreciation of the wide variety of products some of the shops offer. Having said this, we feel well armed to return to Greenwich Village to further explore some of the restaurants we were introduced to. Thanks to our awesome tour guide for her expertise and enthusiasm!

A Great Food Tour Experience

Our guide, Kurt, met us right on time at the Chelsea Market--he made a real effort to remember and use all of our first names--and was amazingly successful. He really knew the area and told us many interesting things about it. He was very knowledgeable about all the establishments we visited (and there were quite a few), and made sure we all were enjoying ourselves, learning about the Market and meat packing district, and along the way eating lots of delicious food. When we met, it was raining and he said how lucky we were to have chosen this tour as the Market part was all inside--but he promised that by the time we came to the meat packing part, during which we walked outside, the sun would be shining and it would be a beautiful day--and he was right! We also visited several restaurants in the area which was great because we plan to visit Chelsea when next we're in NYC and now we know some good places to eat. Altogether a delightful day. We can't recommend the tour highly enough.

Quite interesting tour
Thu, Sep 3, 09   11:30 AM degrootrik Unspecified 20-29 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We had a nice tour through meatpacking district. To see the shops including some food is interesting and to hear some of the history too. Our guide Kurt appeared to be a bit of a chatter and that is an understatement. He talks the whole time but that seems to be normal in New York. Absolutely a nice tour and definitely worth a recommendation to go to one of the nicest areas in NYC!

We have heard about Greenwich Village since the 1960's but have not kept up with the changes that have occurred over the years. It is an area filled with history unique to the Village. We enjoyed the tasting experiences and the tour so much. This was a highlight of our NYC visit. Can't wait to try one of the other food tasting and culture tours offered in NYC. .

Our tour was reccommended to us by friends who also took this tour. It surpassed our expectations. Our guide, Rajim was great. He was very knowledgeable about the food, and the history of the Village. Such a personalbe guide. The food choices were very tasty. Although it was a warm day, we enjoyed ourselves. We highly reccommend this tour.

Alot of fun and incredibly educational as well. Great value for money considering the length of the tour and the amount of tastings we had. Would strongly recommend this activity to anyone considering it.

I've taken other food tours and loved them. I wasn't as impressed with this one. There was less food tasting on this tour and a lot more history and walking to places that were not food orientated. I did leave with a good understanding of the area.
