The food was superb! We will enjoy going back to try some of the restuarants and might actually stay there the next time we come to New York!

We had a great time - Todd, our guide, was very knowledgeable and compassionate about the Meat Packing District. I would have spent a little more time outside of Chelsea Market though, walking around the district. Food was good but nothing to rave about... We will come back to the area for the shops at Chelsea market and to support the new restaurants...

Suzanne was our tour leader and she was fun and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was an easy walk and there was more food than you could eat. Each place we stopped was very unique and the tasting samples were very generous and delicious. The history of the Greenwich Village area is so interesting and the buildings are beautiful. What a vibrant community!! I am recommending this tour to everyone and I would go again. Karen D. Buffalo, NY

I took this tour in the middle of a blizzard and the guide was very helpful in finding us a warm refuge. She then picked up the food, gave us kits of history and notes of interest about the area and accomodated our needs (warmth). I decided to retake the tour because I was so impressed with our guide and wanted to show my friend and see all that the guide had talked about. It was a hot day, and our new guide spent to much time telling us about the price of food specials at the resturants . We were hot and there are few places to sit down, so we abandoned the tour after 1 1/2 hours, quite disappointed. The tour can be most interesting and wonderful with the right guide

I've already recommended this tour to other people here in Wyckoff, NJ. I think many of us don't know the Village and it was great to learn the history and foods of this area. I'm looking forward to trying the other tour this summer. Cindy was great fun and an excellent tour guide.

I enjoyed the tour and the food. The guide was informative and enthusiastic. It gave me just enough information so that someday I will feel comfortable exploring this part of NYC again on my own. The cost was reasonable and I look forward to taking other tours with this company in the future.

I live in this city and I found the tour to be extremely interesting and valuable. I leaned great insider tips about restaurants to try. It's great because you see a side of the village that normally you wouldn't explore. Andre our tour guide was great and my favorite stop on the tour was Chumley's, the old speakeasy. It just shows the amazing history this city has to offer!

We all really enjoyed the food tour and our guide Andreas was very pleasant and informative. Was perhaps a bit long and maybe better condensed into 2 hours but otherwise wwll worth it.

The presenter provided interesting information and moved the group from site to site well. This introduction to the Village and the food sampling provided a delightful experience and a great 3 hours of walking and tasting on a beautiful day in Greenwich Village. Later the same day we returned to the area to dine at the Cuban Restaurant operated by "mama" which had been pointed out during the tour. The food and service were exceptionally good and confirmed the "value added" by the earlier tour.

Family vacation / celebration in New York

Food samples were very good - cheese and olives, bread, chocolates, pizza, dessert, and gyro and falafel - though a bit heavy towards the end. A coffee or tea stop would have been a nice break. All the history and all the food stops involved standing and eating standing up - taking a break to sit for 15 minutes to have a coffee break in the middle of the tour would have been nice (it was a little hot and muggy that day). The guide was knowledgable and thoughtful and the selection of the shops and eateries was good. Thanks!

I enjoyed this tour, however the tour guide made it sound a little too much like an advertisement for some of the restaurants that we visited - made me wonder what kind of kick backs he was getting. Also, it could have been shortened by about 30 mins (perhaps by cutting down on some of the advertising).

We did both tours and enjoyed them both greatly. I tell people that the highlight of our week in New York City was the broadway plays and your walking tours. The food was an excellent addition. I can now tell people that we ate at New York's finest!

This tour was great. Really informative. And the great food stores and places to eat were great. I loved this tour and the Chelsea tour. Do both.

I enjoyed the tour very much, but the only thing I was a little turned off was by the hardsell on some of the restaurants and shops. I thougt our tour guide, Rebecca, was terrific. She did a good job of keeping a somewhat large group together and was gracious about getting the food samples distributed. I know this wasn't an architectural tour but I would have liked a little bit more info on the local architecture and history. I will definitely recommend the tour to my friends. It certainly is a new way to see NY neighborhoods. And if it works out on my next trip I would like to take the other tour you offer.
