This was by far the best $ we spent in NYC, the tour was perfectly paced and had a great mix of food, history and architecture surrounding Greenwich Village. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits NYC and we will definately be attending the Chelsea tour on our next visit.

We had a great time! Our guide was very well informed and the food was great. I would highly recommend the tour to anyone (locals as well as tourists) looking for a relaxing and different activity.

This was a great tour. It gave a sense of the character of Greenwich Village, gave the juicy gossip in the area, and also gave me a good sense of the restaurants that I want to revisit while I stay in New York City.

This was an ecellent way to see some of the more unusual parts of New York. Our guide (Micheal) was excellent and his knowldge of the area added to the experience. I would definately recommend this tour to anyone visiting New York.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The tour guide--Michael, was a wealth of information, and did a great job of weaving the history, cultures, architecture and food threads together into the tapestry that is Greenwich Village. I have already recommended it to friends who visit New York, and have spoken about it to colleagues in the food industry.

couple from Korea seeking off-the-beaten-path tour + intro to NY foods

The tour was below my expectations. We were standing around on the same street for the first hour and although the food was good, I didn't that it was a lot. With the money we were paying for the tour, I think we deserved to have more food on the tour. I think the tour would've been more worthwhile if it included more discussions about the history of NY and Greenwich village, more about the different cultures in the area, and less visits to restaurants where we only get to look around. However, I would recommend it to people as soon as they arrive in the city so that they can come back to visit the restaurants introduced on the tour, ones that tourists would never find out about otherwise.

We both enjoyed the tour--got some great tips on where to eat in the Village. Loved the history of the area. Tastes were OK--maybe more exposure to the restaraunts would be good.

I higly recommend. It was a great time when we enjoyed the food and all the information about Greenwich Village itself. I already sent the link for 2 couples (friends) that are going to visit NY soon. I am sure they will also enjoy.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Market tour, and have highly recommended it to people in Hawaii who will be visiting NYC soon for business and graduation. Todd was a great tour guide and provided us with much historical and current development information on the Meat Packing district. I look forward to returning in 2006 for my son's graduation, and anticipate a huge transformation. I took my son to the market the next day, to buy nigiri sushi and fish for sashimi; what a treat for a student away from home in the Islands.

First-time visitors to NYC (from California)

Our tour guide, Cindy, was fantastic and she provided interesting points about the restaurants and the historic sights around the area. She had a great sense of humor, an in-depth knowledge of the area and its history and was able to "connect" well with all the group. My only suggestion would be with respect to the food samples. They were primarily bread, foccacia, pizza, falafal, a rice ball, cannoli--for someone who needs to keep his/her blood sugar stable or is avoiding a lot of carbs, sampling of food on this tour is nearly impossible. I realize that since we were eating while standing, the variety of foods tasted is limited but would encourage you to perhaps include some vegetables or fruit samples or something along those lines. Thanks again for a great time!

Almost got left behind having a coffee in the Italian bakery (could the guide not have come in and found us?), but rest of tour was delightful. My friend, who has lived in NY for 9 years, equally enjoyed it. A tasteful and delightful three hours.

Very enjoyable though a little too long. Delicious varying food samples from a mix of cultures. Would have liked just a little more history which was later offered on architecture. Andrea was a charming leader with good sense of humour.
