brought my (21 yr old) niece to NY for her first visit

Brought my niece to NY for her first visit. Wanted to do something that would be both fun and give her some background on the neighborhood. The Greenwich Village tour was perfect. You could tell our guide loves the Village and each food tasting was delicious. We felt bad for those people just driving by in the in the tour buses missing the true flavor of NY. Highly Recommend!

This is easily the most enjoyable tour we have ever taken, here or abroad. Our guide, Rory, is a resident of the area Her enthusiasm for it is infectious and her knowledge of the place, its food, and its history were conveyed in the most enjoyable fashion possible.

I thought this tour was one of the best things we did while we were in New York City. Mike, our tour guide, obviously had a deep love for the village and shared tons of great stories and history about it. After visiting Greenwich village and being able to learn about the area in this way, has made me want to move there! I definately recommend this tour to anyone interested. (Yes, the food was good too.)

Timeframe & amount of walking was OK. Weather was great. Really, really could've used some drinks along the way. It would've been especially appreciated after the pita sandwich. Bottle of water provided at the start does not last very long. Perhaps a soda midway? Overall, I thought the amount of food sampled was very small compared to fee (my estimated of food value ~33%).

New Jersey friends looking for something different to do

We have lived in NJ all of our lives and never taken a Greenwich Village Tour. This was absolutely the best, the history of the Village is facinating and the food tasting was the greatest. We were told at the beginning of the tour that we would have enough tasting to take care of lunch and that was true, samples were generous and everything was great, will certainly tell other friends and would do this again.

Would highly recommend tour. Our guide Susie was informative and managed to convey the true community spirit within Greenwich Village. The tour also highlighted the range of good food available and I would def visit the area again on any return visit to NY. The food tasting was great especially enjoyed the chocolate!

I would highly recommend this walking tour. The support information from your website was excellent. Even though you recommended that the meeting place was not in walking distance from our hotel on 46th Street, we actually walked it in little over an hour down 6th Avenue (I'm 58, my husband 61), and still able to do the 3 hour+ tour. Our guide Laurie was great. She spoke loud and clear, explained everything to our satisfaction. We learned so much, loved her description of Italian and ethic foods. And the food samples were plentiful! Who can forget the delicious almond croissant at Bruno's...the candy samples at Lilac...oh, Joe's authentic New York style pizza (we had eaten at a pizzeria recommended on the FNC, but it could not compare to Joe's)...Murray's cheeses and olives...Yatagan's lamb/beef pita sandwich and the falavel...Everything we sampled was great. And we loved all the descriptions of the area around Gweenwich. As a followup of our tour, we returned to Greenwich Village before we left New York so that we could buy boxes of candies from Lilac and coffee from Porto Rico Imports for our families and friends back in Hawaii. Thank you for the wonderful experience we had with the tour. I will recommend it to anyone wanting a memorable NYC adventure.

This tour was one of the best events we've experienced in our five trips to NYC. The tour guide, Rorey, was friendly, well-informed, and fun. We didn't hurry through the tour, so we had plenty of time to enjoy each stop. We would definitely recommend this tour to others.

This tour was excellent! Our guide (Zora?) was very well informed, interesting, funny, and took very good care of the group. The tour was recommended to me by a "real" New Yorker and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of Greenwich Village and FOOD!

We would recommend to anyone interested in the area. The places we stopped welcomed us, their tastes they gave us were wonderful! Many places are historic, our guide was very helpful and knowledgeable The 3 hours went by too fast. I'm a horrible speller, sorry.
