Just little old me, looking to wander round Greenwich Village

The tour consisted of crossing the road in a zig-zag between eateries. Great if you like food and hate sightseeing. If you like sightseeing and aren't fussed about food - like me - you might want to try something else.

I am 61 years old, have been in the travel business for 15 years and have done many tours. Never have I done one that I've enjoyed more or even as much as I enjoyed the Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour. Our guide, Susan, was absolutely the best!! She gave us a great overview of the area's history as well as bringing in a little humor. You can tell from the minute you meet her that she loves what she's doing. Having worked in sales for the past 40 years, I always appreciate a person like Susan. She is definitely an asset to your organization. In closing, I must tell you that I will never send a client to New York again without giving them information on your tours. Respectfully, Ruth Antonius, Owner The Travel Solution

woman traveling alone looking for a fun trip thru Greenwich Village

Wonderful food - lots of variety and portion sizes were great. I went back to Gigot for dinner that same evening and mentioned that I had been on the food tour earlier that day. Greatly enjoyed learning things like where the term "86ed" came from. This tour is almost too good to be true - fabulous value for your money- but be prepared for 3 hours of walking and standing. I will definitely recommend this tour to friends and family.

Helpful and detailed background on the meatpacking district, then, now, and future. Interesting and "neat" details of the area. Good food tastings, and well arranged in Chelsea market. Too much bread/too many carbs for me though! Well recommended food walking tour.

young & middle age women vacationers; New York state couple

My daughter (25) and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. Zora was an excellent guide, giving us lots of historical and funny anecdotes about Greenwich--notice I left off the redundant "village" part. Local history was great. Food was fantastic. Local people were friendly. 3 hours zoomed by. It was really my favorite part of visiting New York because it was up close & personal.

couple in early 40's visiting for a few days from Toronto

We were a bit worried (or my husband was) when we showed up and the tour was all middle aged women - but we had a hoot - Zora made the tour so much fun - what a woman. She had a great knowledge of the area and the architecture not to mention the restaurants and local food establishments. Lots of fun - would recommend it and do it again -but would have to request Zora - loved that girl!

This tour is outstanding and a good way for people to see how this part of NY was in the past and present. Our tour guide, Michael, was wonderful and had so much information to share with us. The 3 hours went by so fast and was also 3 hours well spent. Please keep up this tour because I tell everyone who goes to NY to take it and they in turn do the same.

We really enjoyed the tour of Greenwich Village - both the food tasting and the historical/cultural discussions. Our guide was very informative and kept it interesting. It was a good way to get a good feel of the area (much more fun than if we toured the area on our own!).

3 teenagers (ninth grade) and Mom from CT

I often recommend this tour both to visitors and to natives, (this was my 2nd time., the first time I did it with a friend and thought the kids would enjoy it) The teens especially enjoyed the historical and cultural anecdotes and wished there would have been more information along those lines. It could be about an hour shorter if it 'moved along' quicker but that is difficult to control with 16 people. It is tiring to be on your feet for 3 hours. I plan to take the kids to the Chelsea tour soon.

It was a great way to spend a few hours expanding our knowledge of the city and the unique area of The Village. Not to mention the food part was the best!

This tour was one of the highlights of our New York experience. We found ourselves gravitating to the Greenwich area eating in restaurants we wouldn't have known about or just having coffee and pastries at Rocco's. I would recommend this tour as a must for all visitors!
