This was a great tour - our guide (Mike) was fantastic. We received a good overview of the Village and great ideas on where to eat. In fact, after the tour, we ate in 2 of the restaurants, and went back to shop for Chocolates and pastries in two other places. We would highly recommend this, and will most likely try your other Taste Tour the next time we come to NYC.

This tour was wonderful! Even though it was cold and rainy, we had an excellent time! Our tour guide, Steve, was incredible both in his knowledge of the Village, and in the way he presented it. He made us forget about the weather and we had a fabulous time! The food was tremendous, and the extra historical info about the rise and existence of Greenwich Village was great. We made sure to make an extra trip to the Village a couple of days after the tour to more fully experience this amazing place. We highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for some good food, great company, and a little more personalized taste of New York!

Our tour guide, Michael, was very pleasant and he had a good sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable about Greenwich Village history. The tour is very interesting as are his insights into the culture and food of the neighborhood. I truly feel I received a tour most typical tourists would not receive. I have already recommended this activity to my co-workers. The food we sampled from the various restaurants and stores was very good as well.

Rebecca, our tour guide was fun, knowledgeable about the area and the food! The food was yummy and varied-we were stuffed after the tour, but so jazzed about what we tried and the ambiance of the area, we had to eat more! You get more than your money's worth.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
