family vacation from abroad

I would recommend this tour to anyone intersted in New York City history or just plain food! We went back to the Village shopping and to the local pubs and had a great time! My hisband was born in Brooklyn and knows alot about New York City but he was impressed with your tour as much as I was. This was a fun tour and the only suggestion I have to improve it would be to include a five minute "sit down" rest once per hour (or stop in areas where seating is available whenever we sample food, even if only a ledge or planter). Our family found our feet extremely sore after the first hour of the tour even though we wore comfortable shoes. The bottled water is a great idea due to the heat (we had an overcast and slight rain, but still hot), but we found it insufficient since there is no time to get anything on your own. Maybe a liter size would be better or include a drink sample or place to purchase!

we all were absolutely thrilled by the extent of the service provided by our guide. She was knowledgeable and friendly, she remembered each our names and filled us full of yummy surprises... Have recommended it to all our friends and coworkers as soon as we came home from our trip.

Very interesting way of understanding an area often visited but which we knew little about until the explanations were provided. The guide was excellent. While the food tasting was great and interesting, the real focus was understanding the neighbourhood. We recommend this to anyone wanting to get a good feel for the area. It is not a tour where one wants to learn about food. The food is a mechanism to a very enjoyable walk around.

Young local adults looking for something interesting in their city

My girlfriend and I thought the tour was great! Cindy (our tour guide) was fantastic, she tought us a lot about the history and arcitecture of the village. The tasting part of the tour however was lacking. We were expecting to do some tasting of restaurant menus, but that is not what we got. Instead it was more of like soem cheese here, a piece of chocolate there, as opposed to tasting what some of the restaurants in the village are famous for. For instance, little Havana sounded really interesting but we tasting nothing from that restaurant. Come to think of it, we didn't taste any food from any restaurant. We tasted from a cheese shop, a chocolate shop, and places like that. I guess if there was more food involved, it would have been a little better. But the tour was great! I am recommending it to all my friends, and I am looking forward to doing the one in the Meatpacking district!

Weekend Getaway to NYC for myself and husband

I thought it was excellent. Cindy was fantastic. She had alot of energy and very knowledgable. Her relationship with the local Mom & Pop stores brought us back to a bygone era. I felt fortunate that she was our guide and I plan on attending the meat packing district tour in the future, but with a specific request for her tour. I also loved the historic side of the tour. The food was great.

I have taken the tour before, and thought it was fantastic. The second go round was just as wonderful. There were new spots added that were hidden gems, and even my traditional parents were enticed by the ethic eats offered up by some of the restaurants. Our tour guide, Jennie, was great - very upbeat with lots of stories and anecdotes about the area and the restaurants off the beaten path. Each of the tastings was excellent; nice balance of flavors/tastes. pace was good for my plump middle aged 'rents to keep up with and not feel winded. Would definately recommend to a friend - an planning to take another one of the tours soon!

Tour guide was excellent. Food was okay, but not quite what I expected. It might be better to either add some very high-end offerings, or make it clear that the food will be pretty basic stuff--pizza, schwarma, cheese, cannoli, etc.

Tour was a very good balance between history and food. Sampled quite a bit of things but was expecting a bit more and the sampling a bit more spread out in terms of time. Mostly all the tasting was at the end. Overall a great way to spend 3 hours and get to know the neighborhood and where the great eats are. The phamphlets provided are a great resource. Highly recommend this tour

I would highly recommend this tour. It was very entertaining and informative. The guide is enthusiastic and knowledgeable which made the activity more fun. It gives you the chance to see the smaller details of the areas involved that you wouldn't normally notice. Because I live close to New York City I've been able to go back to the places we saw on the tour that I wouldn't have known about.

Highly recommend. Fabulous food tastings and interesting review of village history. Loved walking down neighborhood streets and being told the history of several buildings. Wide variety of food sampled. All were tasty. Learned a lot about the city I live in.

The tour was wonderful! Not only were we able to try the foods of the village, we also learned about some of the history that is there...from the architecture to the true meaning of the term "86 it." We had a great time and would highly recommend the tour to others. Our guide was very enthusiastic and had an outstanding attitude. After the tour, we felt that we could go back to the Village and show our friends around.

I would highly recommend this walking tour. It was informative both historically and with regard to the foods and dining establishments in the West Village. Our tour guide, Cindy, has a wonderful personality, and we found her very enthusiastic about the history of the Village. We were a diverse age group, and Cindy was very aware and considerate of the seniors on our tour. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, and am eager to go on this tour again with more of my friends and family.
