Highlight of my trip to New York

The activity was not flexible or changeable

I booked 3 tickets to the 1:00p.m. Saturday tour 7/12. I was traveling from Indiana to New York city on vacation & was delayed 4 hours at the airport. I left a message at 9:00a.m. on Saturday to let the group know I would not be arriving in time to make the tour. The only option I was given was to buy 2 more tickets & get one free (another investment of $84.00 on top of the $110.00 I had already spent) I believe this is inflexible. I will not use the service again.

Having a New Yorker to tell you about the local food and the history of the area is something a tourist just can't get out of a Lonely planet.

Visited NYC for a broadway show on Friday and took this tour on Sat. It was one of the highlights of my weekend. Loved our guide, food samples and group. Will definately go back to some of the restaurants I saw on the tour. The landscape/historical part of the tour (in my opinion) was enchanting. It didn't even seem as though I was in NYC at times.

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.

Tour guide was excellent. It is much more than just the food, this tour educates on the rich history. I was pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend to others.

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

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.

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

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.

My second time!

I went on the first tour last summer with my nieces, I loved it so much and talked about it so much I purchased tickets for my husband and me. Again, loved the food and the information about old New York. The tour guide was great and knowledgable, but the first tour guide was a "true" New Yorker and enjoyed her jokes and stories more. I think a tour guide from New York is more what tourist are looking for. My husband enjoyed the tour and couldn't compare it with another and he had fun! I would go again when company comes in from out of town but will request a "New Yorker". Worth the money, for sure. Mariann, from PA

Loved the combination of exploring food eateries as well as learning the history of the neighborhood, the architecture, etc. It was a most enjoyable way of getting to know a neighborhood on a first name basis!
