excellent in every respect, a detailed social history from a knowledgeable guy with a great sense of humor, good food. This was recommended to us by friends and we will surely do the same.

We went on the Chelsea Mk and Meat Packing tour and our guide Kirk was amazing. Very knowledgeable as well as humorous and extremely well organized. There were 14 of us and we sampled a great variety of food from the market. Excellent and informative activity and we felt we got great value for our money. Would highly recommend it.

We had a fabulous time! It was my second time on the tour and I loved it just as much as the first time. My boyfriend, who is a native New Yorker, didn't expect to learn anything about "his" city, but came out of it even more excited than I was! The tastings are always the highlight, and they were amazing. Overall, it was a huge success - highly recommended!

I highly recommend it. The tour was informative and the food great. It was a great time and lots of info on the area. I did not feel that I was wasting any precious time as I was only in NY for the weekend. I will recommend to others. Thanks, next time I will try the other tour. Thanks Jo-Anna

First I want to say that I liked the tour guide very much & the history I learned about the area was great. I also loved the area that we toured. I was disappointed in the food part of the tour because I thought we were going to be eating much more than we did so we came there with empty stomachs - big mistake. I also felt that the the tour went on a little long considering we were walking or standing at all times. I know it said 'walking tour" but it also said food & there was way more walking then there was food offered. When I signed up, I thought the price was reasonable but now I feel the tour was overpriced.

We were very, very pleased with this tour. We had alot of plans that were outside of Greenwich Village, however, after taking this tour, all our meals and most of our outings for the remainder of the trip all took place in Greenwich Village. We ate at alot of the places we saw on the tour. We LOVED them all. On the last day we were there, we went back to Rocco's Pastry Shop, Italian speciality shop, the candy shop, the coffee shop and the cheese shop. We bought alot of goodies and brought them home with us (carried them on the plane!). When we returned home, we had some friends over that evening and we shared our "Greenwich Village Experience" with them. Everything was wonderful. We will be ordering from alot of these places for Christmas baskets. We HIGHLY recommend this tour. We hope to take it again next time we visit. We especially LOVED Trattoria Pasta (across the street from Murray's). The food was so good we felt like crying. I could go on and on, so THANK YOU for a great tour. Our guide was also awesome.

We recommend the tour very highly,our tour guide was outstanding he was very informative about the past history and the present of Greenwich Village. we only wish we would have taken it the first day in NYC, so we could have enjoyed some of the unique restaurants while on holiday.

here alone on vacation and wanted to try something unusual

It was exceptional - the tour guide, Curt, was GREAT! And our group was fun (I ended up going for drinks and later dinner with some people I met on the tour) so it just felt like a roving party. The food was exceptional and the inside exposure to such interesting places was really a treat. Oops - I'm describing my Chelsea food tour experience and you want info on my Greenwich experience - which was also terrific (but a rainy day which was a bit of a bummer). Michael was a fun and very knowlegable tour guide and learning all that history was great. Both are FANTASTIC tours that I highly recommend. Really gave me a different picture of both locations and great insider info for where to go back to.

This is a wonderful tour & was the highlight of the trip. Walking lets you see so much more in detail than a bus or cab tour. The food was wonderful, varied and generous in servings. Our guide, Zora, was a wealth of info and so very pleasant to be with. She looked after us very well and we all had a great time. I would like to take the meat packing tour another time. Thank you so much for making our trip such a memorable one. Sandra Byers, Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

I had a great time! My group was all female, from Canada, Staten Island and me, from Singapore! The people in my group was very nice, warm and friendly! Our tour guide, Zora, was funny, friendly and great fun! I'm so glad I joined this tour! I have recommended it to my friend, who is a New Yorker! I feel that he'll have as much fun as I had! Thanks!

Excellent tour and delicious food. Zora, our tour guide was very entertaining, gave us some interesting history and trivia of the area. Over half of our group was from NYC, a few grew up in the village. Zora incorporated this into the tour and made it very interesting and FUN. The only change I would make is to improve the Rest Room Stop. We stopped at Chumleys, which was a very interesting Speakeasy, but not the nicest of rest rooms. THANKS again it was enjoyable and worth the money. We all came home full, with maps and resturant names and addresses for future visits.
