my partner and i have travelled all over the world and to new york city about 20 times. michael was one of the best tour guides we have ever had. he wove wonderful and romantic stories about the village and made us dream of coming back to new york many more times. my only problem is that he does not offer anymore tours.

tour guide's knowledge of and love for the village were both educational and inspiring! i have lived in the city for fove years and learned a lot from the tour- many things i'll certainly do in the future (restuarants, etc) the food was excellent, too. i would have liked a few more opportunites to sit down and to use the toilet- but overall it was *really* a great time!!!

The tour was very interesting, especially if one had never been to the Village before, though I wish there had been even more information on the literary & artistic celebrities who once frequented the area. All but one of the foods sampled were excellent--the pear tart tasted of canned pears and should have had a crisp pastry crust instead of a cake-like rather tasteless one. I would recommend the tour in spite of this; it cerainly compares favorably with other city tours I've taken.

visitors to NY, both English one living in the UK one in Florida

It was an extremely good way to spend the time, from my point of view it was probably half-an-hour too long. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone visiting NY but would advise them to do it as early in their trip as possible to get a feel for the area. The tour guide was very helpful. Thank you

The tour was a great way to see part of the city that normally "tourist" do not get to see. Our guide Cindy, was great fun to watch as she interacted with the local business people and many on the street. since this is a food tour, we had some great food along the way. Thanks for the great experence.

Susan was very knowledgeable about the history, culture and life of the area, and informed the group in an interesting and fun way. Our tastes were so very good from the various establishments. We would highly recommend this tour to others visiting the city. The on-line method of buying tickets worked very well. Thanks for a great tour.

There were only five in our group on a rainy day and Cindi did a great job of filling us in on the Greenwich Village history, foods and ethnicities. I would highly recommend it to all who love food. It was a pleasant three hours.

I would definitely recommend this tour. Our guide, Cindy, was absolutely delightful and gave us a lot of historical info about the Village. The food establishments we visited were primo and all the food delicious. The tour exceeded our expectations and became a highlight of our time in New York.

Mom and daughter from N.J. who had never been to the Chelsea Market

We were the only locals (from the NY/NJ area) on the tour...the out-of-towners really seemed to enjoy it, as did we. It gave us a new persepective on a NYC neighborhood that we hadn't explored very often. It also gave us great ideas on where to eat next time we're in town. We can't wait to try some of the restaurants we were introduced to! The tastings were all delicious, and it was interesting to go behind-the-scenes at some of the establishments and to learn the history of how the Chelsea Market became what it is today. I would definitely recommend this tour to locals as well as out-of-towners. It's an informative and tasty way to spend a few hours in NYC and the price is definitely right!

We really enjoyed it very much. Our guide, Kurt, was very informative and entertaining. We enjoyed the samples of food. Each food vendor had something unique to offer. We would recommend it to anyone who enjoys eating and trying new things.

I would recommend this activity. It gave us a chance to see parts of the city we wouldn't have been able to see on foot. It was informative and a lot of fun to see where different shows and movies have been filmed. I found myself referencing a lot of things learned on the tour throughout my trip. We took the tour early on in our trip and were then able go see some of the places on foot. Highly recommend it.

THIS WAS THE SECOND TIME I HAD DONE THE VILLIAGE TOUR AND I ENJOYED IT AS MUCH AS THE FIRST. EACH TIME YOU GO YOU LEARN MORE THAN THE LAST. I ALSO TOOK THE CHELSEA TOUR IN THE SNOW LAST DEC AND I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THAT TOUR. SNOW DID NOT HINDER THE FUN OF THE TOUR AT ALL. I WOULD RECOMMEND BOTH TOURS TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND HAVE DONE SO ALREADY. NEXT YEAR I WANT TO DO THE TOUR OF THE MOVIE AND TV SETS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
