Fun way to eat your way thru the Village!

We had a great tour and guide in Kurt. Learned great tidbits about West Village, architecture, residents, and above all - restaurants (also went into a few and chatted w/ owners/staff)! We took the 3 pm tour and saw an 8pm show - - it served as dinner and none of us were hungry the rest of the evening. Tried about 3 different desserts, and 5 or 6 non-sweet food items. I would give 5 stars except that I did feel that trying 2 different pizza places was overkill (as mentioned by a previous post) - even tho they were 2 different styles. Both were excellent, but in hindsight it would've been nice to try something different at another of the restaurants instead. We wound up eating at a couple of the suggested restaurants during our visit the rest of the weekend. The recommendations were wonderful.

A must do on your NYC Trip!

We did the tour of the Central Village and Soho areas. It was awesome! The food was very diverse, we got a great history lesson about the neighborhood and our tour guide even pointed out a few of his favorite spots. He showed us the Comedy Cellar which was a great comedy show that we ended up getting tickets for that night! I highly recommend doing this tour and Raheem was an very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who was also from our hometown area in Colorado!! A definite must on your trip!

Fantastic tour

Our group of 3 mums and 3 daughters (13,16,23) all throughly enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. By the end of the tour we were all stuffed with all the different tasters we were given by the various shops we visited. We all gave it 9 out 10. Missed out on the extra point only because of the weather - cold and very wet.

Visiting the Village... take the tour first thing

The Greenwich Village food tour was one of the highlights of our trip to New York. This is a great way to get to know the Village before you head out on your own. On this tour you'll sample excellent food from among the authentic, local places in Greenwich Village and Soho, and learn something about the diverse and colorful history of the Village and NYC. The tour guide, and the restaurateurs and proprietors of the places we visited, are engaging and friendly; and the food items we sampled were always excellent, interesting and delicious. Every stop on this tour was a "highlight"; but let me call out a couple: Joe's Dairy, with delicious, creamy smoked mozzarella and intense, savory sun-dried tomatoes. Once Upon a Tart, right across the street, with tasty and expressively French-inspired fruit desserts on a delicate tart crust. Montes Italian restaurant, where we sampled pasta with a bolognese sauce that will reset your expectations forever of what southern-Italian-style red meat sauce can be. Thanks, I hope to take this tour again. On the next trip to NY we plan to go back to many of these places, and really explore the menu for lunch and dinner.

Weather did not hinder a GREAT time !!!!!!!!!!

On 2/19/07, the three of us bundled up and headed out of our hotel lobby to a 13 degree start . We were enthusiastically hoping that the walking tour of Greenwich Village would keep us warm . We arrived a half an hour early and decided that a cuo of HOT anything would keep us warm. Promptly at 10:45 Cindy , our tour guide arrived. From this point on , we did not worry about the weather . Cindy was excellent. One could immediately surmise that she loved the city, the people and the history of the area . We would highly recommend this tour and are planning to take another tour next year during our annual visit ( even in 14 degree weather !!)

Informative and delicious tour

Our guide Bob did a fantastic job showing us around Chelsea Market and the Meat Packing District. Sprinkling the locations with history and local fare he made the very crowded (at the time) stops enjoyable and keep the group engaged. The food samples were fantastic and spread well throughout the event. Only complaint was the 2nd to last stop with the pasta undercooked and could of used a little larger portion. Overall I recommend this tour to locals and travellers alike.

A Feast for the Mind and All of the Senses

One of those rare touring experiences that will leave you wanting to stop strangers on the street to tell them not to miss the opportunity to experience Greenwich Village through the eyes of someone who loves and admires her and knows her inside and out.

Fun and informative.

This is our second time doing a Foods of New York tour (we did Greenwich Village previously). Its a great way to start a visit to NYC as the guides give you a lot of information regarding not only the food scene, but are also very well informed on the history and what is currently going on not only in the area you are touring but elsewhere in the city, Plus they are very entertaining and the food is great!

The tour was great, our guide Susan was friendly and very knowledgable. The food was fabulous. We had quite a range of ages to satisfy from an 11 year old girl, a 14 year old boy to over-60 females. Everyone was satisfied and had a great time. Definitely learned a lot and can't wait to come back on our own to eat at some of the establishments we were introduced to on the tour.

A highlight of my many frequent trips to New York
Thu, Dec 27, 07   11:30 AM whildi Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
Myself, my husband and my 2 boys (ages 19 and 23) thoroughly enjoyed the food tour of Greenwich Village. The food was DELICIOUS, and each establishment was very interesting to visit. We also loved seeing and learning about the architecture and the history of the area. Barri, our guide, was warm, friendly, engaging and full of all kinds of interesting information. We have recommended this tour to friends in the New York area and in Toronto (where we live). As well,when we return to NYC, we will be sure to visit some of the places that we saw on the tour. It was great to see the little "nooks and crannies" of the Village that we would NEVER access on our own. GREAT JOB!!
