Our experience with the "Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour" was exceptional. Our tour guide was Eric. He was very informative and nice. After the tour we used his recommendation and went to Palma for dinner. We had a wonderful experience there too with Chef Ahmed. It truly was a wonderful day in the City. My girlfriends and I are already looking into booking the Chelsea/New Meat Packing Tour soon. Thanks again for everything.

I highly recommend it. The tourguide had the best personality ever and told us about the town and the architecture as well. I would have never seen these places had I not been taken there. Thank you sooo much. And Please let me know if I could ever be a guide for you in the San Francisco bay area.

We loved the tour and our tour guide Kirk was great (personality, informative). Can't wait to do the Greenwich Village tour. Hope you'll add additional tours. Others on our group already did the Village and enjoyed it so much they did the Chelsea. I've already recommended it to friends & family.

It was very very nice. Gave me a much better view of the region, good hints about restaurants, food and beverages shops and some cultural information of the region. I liked it so much.

NNJ couple interested in learning more about the Chelsea area of NYC.

Although interesting, too much time was devoted to staying within Chelsea Market. The various food tastings, although good, were quite sparse. As adults, the portions could have been sized accordingly. Also, more time could have been spent walking through some of the Chelsea neighborhoods, as well as being shown museums and other points of interests. Having the remains of loading docks at several meat-packing plants pointed-out was not all that inspiring, including the abandoned lengths of the elevated (Hi-Line) RR, funky bars, and hi-end retail shops. Our guide appeared very knowledgeable and well-mannerred however, we would have liked to have seen this knowledge put to use over a wider portion of the Chelsea area.

My daughters and I come to NYC every Oct. and like to try different things. We took the Celebrity tour of Homes last year and throughly enjoyed it. The guide on this tour told us to try the food tour. We loved it and are excited about going on the Greenwich Village tour ASAP. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who wants to see and experience parts of NYC they would never find on their own. I give it a rating of excellent!

My sister and I (from the UK), visiting my daughter in NJ

I would highly recommend this tour. The guide (Jenni) was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the village and its restaurants. She knew about all kinds of foods but also gave us very interesting insights into some of the buildings. My only reservation would be the order in which the food is taken. It might be more palatable to somehow make it starters/entrees/desserts. Although the first pastry was called 'breakfast', I would have preferred to have had something like this taster nearer the end. However, that is a small quibble and everything else about the tour, for me, was just about perfect.

Two Jersey friends out for the day in NYC

This tour was the best money I've ever spent for an activity in NYC. Our guide was experienced and totally well informed, interesting and friendly, conversational, etc. The details of the history of the area was fascinating and so much more alive than reading about it ina book.The scoop on the restuarants was the real inside view and the tastings were great, I was more than satisfied with the food, felt like a party with lots of good noshes around!! Lots of good shops and places I will definitely return to!

There were very few changes in the past two years, maybe two or three different stops. I believe the guide was Kurt. We enjoyed it.

Fascinating "insider" details that made Greenwich Village's past and present come alive...Rebecca, our guide, excelled in telling the stories of the landmarks we visited. The food was AMAZING!

I thought the tour was quite comprehensive and fun, but I did not think it was excellent or amazing. My two sisters went on the same food tour another time and thought it was really great, so maybe it was just the tour guide that didn't really deliver the information in an exciting way. The tastings were very good, especially Joe's pizza. I wish there were more, mainly because I expected not to need lunch afterwards, but I did. Nevertheless, the price of the tour is reasonable for the tour and the food, and overall, I would give the tour a 7.5 out of 10.
