very disappointing

The history provided and the food (choices and quality) left much to be desired. The guide did the best she

could but had very little to work with.

was not up to the standards we expected

i purchased this a gift for family members but instead we went to see how it would be but it was disappointing

firstly there was only one stop for wine and that was at an ale spot

next the dessert selection was not more than a truffle tasting at 2 spots, a cookie and a piece of candy

then a tea spot for tea was one of the best spots of the bunch but how does that fit in just like the cheese shop

I expected more to taste and a wine tasting at a wine store instead we get 10 choices of wine off a menu with no actual person explain the wines in a soho beer and ale spot and actually i got a microbrew beer instead by choice

please note we walked by a crepes shop that was more intriguing than the bakery/candy shops we went to on the tour as well as walking by multiple wine shops

now the cheese shop was interesting and would a have been a home run if 3-4 wines were presented for pairings with types of cheese presented

in all the shops were spread out to far apart and should not be called a wine and dessert tour especially at the price I paid for

I've done other food tours for a less price and got a lot more interesting tastings with a more fully invested guide.

Sorry you didn't love the tour or appreciate that we bent over backwards to accommodate you when you were more than 30 minutes late. You missed the important introductory portion of the tour :(. Jess, the guide, felt bad that after all that, you were the only ones that didn't tip her.

We try very hard to please, and we do so about 97% of the time.

We wish you a positive and joyous holiday season.

Mixed tour in Greenwich

Attended: Flavors of New York Food Tour
 
The tour had 6 stops reaching from local hotdog to dumplings and supported with short cultural description from the guide. Compared to the price of $ 42 per person we where slightly disappointed with the level of diversity of both food chosen and the quality range. There are so many and waste food concepts in the area that would fair a visit. A satisfied customer will recommend to others and come back. Pls be careful not to 'wash out' the concept. We love the Big Apple and Greenwich - but will consider to recommend the tour. The alternative is there
