Loved the tour

I enjoyed the tour very much. The only complaint I would have was that when the tour was over I couldn't find X&O sauce! I tried a Chinese grocery store but that was impossible. Will definately take another tour.

Informative,yummy,and friendly!

Enjoyed the history of the area, most of the food, and the pointers of Chinese eating etiquette given to us by our friendly and well-informed guide. Got a true flavor of China Town and am hoping to return to this part of the Big Apple when I visit again. Was disaapointed that we did not sample any dumplings which is one of my favorite Chinese dishes (even though that part of the tour was unavailable due to last minute circumstances). Did not enjoy the Peking duck, since it was just too fatty and would have preferred another tasing @ a different restaurant. The garlic pancakes were also too greasy for my palette. The first restaurant visited was excellent and the food superb. I enjoyed this tour and would highly recomment it to anyone who wants to get a good introduction to this historical area of N.Y.C. I also welcomed the printed brochure given to us highlighting the places we visited along the way which I will keep as a reference in my travel files.

Our guide, Sephorah (sp), was very knowledgeable, informative and entertaining on our walk and taste tour of Greenwich Village. The weather cooperated as it was a beautiful day also.

Discover The Village in a different way
Thu, Apr 1, 10   11:00 AM swissdevil Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
It was my 8th trip to NY from Switzerland, so I know the city pretty well. But that was the first time I've taken such a tour. It was really interesting to discover Greenwich Village while walking and eating some local specialties during the 3-hours tour with an enthusiastic guide. If I had to say something negative, it would be the fact that Amercian people insist too much on the 15% to 20% tip you "have to" give, what is not so common in Europe. But I would definitely recommend the tour, as long as you understand english pretty well...

My brother gave me a gift certificate for the Chelsea Market tour for Christmas. We waited for the weather to get nice and went on the tour this past weekend. We loved it! Darryl was our guide and he was well informed, witty and entertaining. All the food tastings were wonderful and generous. I live in New York so I never would have taken this tour on my own. Now I hope to be able to take the rest of the food tours in the future.

YUM!

From the moment the tour started and our convivial guide gave us our bottled water, I knew this was going to be an amazing culinary journey. Eating our way through the west village was a three hour experience I will not forget..you learn a great deal about the history of the area, recommendations on places to dine and soak in this special part of the city.. and the FOOD, oh my, you get to sample an array of delicious food from several establishments-its really worth the time and money and you will not be disappointed. Its an afternoon to saveur for many reasons. Plus all the walking that you do will make you less guilty on the indulgences!

Another winner!

Took the Greenwich Village Tour in 2005 and loved it. Wondered if this might just be a straight repeat, but still felt it was worth going. We were delighted to find both old favorites and new places to see on the current tour. Marie, our guide, was so good. We've also previously taken the Chelsea Market and Central Village/SoHo tours, and look forward to repeating those also!

Delicious and educational
Mon, Feb 22, 10   11:30 AM PatWills Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
When we were asked to meet at Murry's Cheese Shop and the taxi driver didn't know where it was, I began wondering about my decision to take this tour. But I was pleasantly surprised and 3 hrs later, my friends and I couldn't stop talking about the fun we had that day with our friends. The food was delicious and the conversation with our guide was very educational. She was very knowledgeable of the area, and the choices of restaurants and food establishments were excellent. If you're into chocolate.......We had the best chocolate chip cookie ever made. Yes, I love sweets! But everyone marveled over these cookies. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to a friend.

What a fun tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, seemed to know everything about the Village. The food was wonderful. We could have spent the whole day there if not for the weather. Every visitor to New York should take this tour!

An interesting tour that provides a great context
Mon, Jan 25, 10   11:30 AM mollyathome Female Unspecified International Tourist(s) Unspecified
An interesting experience in that it was pouring with rain but we still proceeded. The tour guide appeared quite knowledgeable about the area and the content of the tour. We were staying in West village - so it helpfully provided us with more detail of our area. The only thing we would say is that it may have been helpful for people in the group to introduce themselves by name, and to shorten the tour by about 15 minutes.

Loved the mix of NY history and wonderful food
Fri, Jan 22, 10   12:00 PM janahumleker Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Four of us had five days in New York, and we hadn't been for quite a few years. Collectively we love cities, love to know about the areas we are visiting, enjoy personal tours and love to try different foods. This tour was the perfect mix of everything - - the food fun and very appealing, the guide personable, helpful and interesting. We would do this again!

Fun & enlightening experience - highly recommended

We participated in the Greenwich Village Tour in early January. Our guide was a local resident of the area, and her passion for the neighborhood, its local merchants, and its historic significance was evident and contagious. The food tastings were plentiful, enough for a meal, but better than that, they were of exceptional quality and often unique to the restaurant or shop visited --- that allowed the group to have tasting experiences we likely would not have discovered on our own. The restaurant & shop owners/staff were all extremely accommodating --- we purchased items from some that day, and will absolutely return for additional dining & shopping experiences in this part of the city. The pace of the tour was good, the tour length was fine (even though it was chilly, the 3 hours actually seemed to fly by), and the variety kept everyone's interest. All in all, a terrific experience and an excellent value. We will take advantage of other tours this company offers.
