Great tour!

Very entertaining and informative tour. Cindy our guide was excellent. She provided us with tons of information about the Chelsea district. The food was great. I was expecting sample sized portions for tasting but the portions were normal sized so make sure you're hungry when starting this tour. I highy recommend this tour to everyone. There were 4 people in our party and all enjoyed it.

Great tour of Central Village
Sat, Jul 5, 08   12:30 PM preethi27 Female Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the food selections. Feel like it's a better tour for people who will be in NYC a bit longer than a couple of days so that you can go back to these places and enjoy them. Was a bit disappointed with the 'Soho' part of the tour which amounted to essentially one block of Soho. A great block with 3 good tastings, to be sure. But barely skimmed Soho. This should be called just the Central Village tour.

THINGS I DID NOT SEE ON MY FIRST NY TRIP
Mon, Jun 30, 08   11:30 AM janilez Female Unspecified International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is my second trip to NY and I was looking for an activity that gave me a better feel for some of the neighborhoods. This fit the bill perfectly. I had read the reviews posted and decided on this tour. I loved the insiders view to Greenwich and found it a very funky neighborhood. I was happy to finally find the "Friends" apartment building on this trip. The only disappointment was echoed in some of the previous reviews. While the food tasting was a great idea and filling, this particular tour was too "bread heavy". Tastings were pizza, olive oil and bread, cheese with bread, olives and salami, thai dumpling, piece of chocolate, cookie, pizza and cannoli. Two pizza tasting were redundant-the second stop with the sicily style would suffice. I would have liked another protien (non bread) ethnic item instead. The olive oil place and spice shop where we were given a chocolate did not generate too many "Ooohs" but the cookie bakery was fantastic. I would like to try the SoHo tour next as I read it stops at PB&Co. Would like to see Dean & Deluca shop added on that tour and Pomme Frittes as well. Chinatown tour sounded good and it was listed at half price but was sold out for the period we were in town. Ovewrall, good value for the money. Informative and a dfferent thing to do in NY.

Cindy took us on a culinary adventure through Greenwich Village. It was one of the best walking tours I've done anywhere. She was delightful - fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Denise - Hamilton, Canada

Far beyond what was expected

This tour was outstanding! Our guide was not only knowledgable but engaging and entertaining as well. He was only one of the components that made this such a fun tour. The food was outstanding, the stores were unique, the cultural history of the Village was colorful and the actual walk was quite enjoyable. What a great way to spend an afternoon!

Great guide, great food, sore feet!
Sat, Jun 21, 08   12:30 PM kstrandburg Unspecified Unspecified Combination Group of Friends
The tour was terrific, both for relatively new residents of the area and for our out-of-town guests. The guide was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The food tastings were excellent and filling. We went back for dinner at one of the places a couple of nights later. Be warned, though, the tour is long and there is very little opportunity to sit down. So be prepared and take the chances to sit when you get them!

Great tour!

What a pleasant surprise! What a tasty tour! Our guide, Marie, was very informative and friendly! She kept us on time without rushing us through anything! The choices of businesses for the tastings was a great variety. I have recommended this tour to friends and will add another tour to my next NY visit.

Great Time!

This tour was excellent! Our group leader, Ed, was friendly and knew about the area in detail. We learned a lot about the West Village and enjoyed great food as well. The food tastings were spaced so that we were full but not too full. We can't wait to go back on our own to try several of the restaurants. We also plan to take a different tasting tour in the near future. It was a highlight of our trip.

Greenwich Tour was FABULOUS
Thu, Jun 19, 08   11:00 AM BTagliarino Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I took the tour. We loved every minute. Our tour guide Kurt was so knowledgeable about the area and as we passed people that lived in the neighborhood seemed to know him. Kurt began the tour by introducing each one of us - remembering all our names and faces plus where we were from. Oh how we wish that in our neighborhood we had stores like - the Ottomanelli's butcher shop, Murray's Cheese Shop, O&Co. Olive Oils, the Italian bakeries - to die for!! And, the next time we visit we will definitely visit this area again and take the Chinatown tour as well. We loved the tour so much that we tried to schedule the tour of Chelsea with Kurt the next day b-4 leaving only to find that it was sold out. However, based on how pleased we were with this NYC tour we have booked a tour with Zerve in Boston on Wednesday, June 25.

More history than food
Sat, Jun 14, 08   12:30 PM cgparmelee Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Overall I enjoyed the tour, it was very informative, providing a historical overview of the area and highlighting current hotspots. But since the tour was specifically a "Food Tour" I expected a little more emphasis on the food culture and tastings. I would have appreciated more tasting stops as there was certainly enough time for them.

Okay but not great
Fri, Jun 13, 08   12:00 PM preciousjeni Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
I found that we heard more about the history of the area than the history of the food. The food tastings were excellent, but there weren't many of them. I can't believe the sparse food offerings for the cost of the tour (3 hours). I was also disappointed that we spent almost an hour walking around a park. If that entire section had been cut out, the tour would have been far better.

Even a native has much to learn
Fri, May 16, 08   12:30 PM TIMSYKUMAR Female Unspecified International Tourist(s) Unspecified
I live here but my sister was visiting me .. and this was her very first trip to US and New York. This tour put her on the top -- not only did we have fun tasting different things, but also the history of the Village - the many interesting people who have frequented these stores, restaurants -- the little gems along the way... :) She of course loved it. I was hoping to get a fun time but I guess even a ntive has much to learn... I would recommend this for one and all. Diana - you are a considerate, patient guide.
