We did the tour of the East Village a few years ago. I recommended it to several people here in L.A. who took it and love it. The Chelse Market tour was just as wonderful. Our guide, who's name I don't remember, was wonderful. He had so much information to offer us. I will recommend this tour to all my friends planning a trip to NYC. Maybe you'll get a third tour going so we can do that one next time. Thanks John Frommelt

The tour was great. We got to see Chelsea Market which is not something the average out of towner would stumble accross on their own. Was fun to see how all the shops were run and sampled some yummy food. As the weather was cold and rainy, it was nice to spend a lot of the tour inside.

Knowledgeable and very friendly guide. More outdoor selections from the meatpacking district and fewer from inside Chelsea Market would have been appreciated, especially since the Chelsea Market portion of the tour seemed to consiste of cheerleading for the Market's founder. In general, the celebration of gentrification in both the market and the meatpacking district seemed unreflective. That having been said, we enjoyed the tour very much.

I took the Greenwich Village food tour three years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our group was planning a day in the city and we were looking for something else to do in addition to taking in a Broadway show. I recommended this and we all enjoyed it. I enjoyed this tour as much, if not more, than the Greenwich tour. Our guide was extremely informative and knowledgable as well as funny. The food was delicious and there was more than enough to fill you up. It might be helpful to know ahead of time that the first two hours of this particular tour takes place inside, and only the last hour is outside. I highly recommend both of the food tours. It's a great way to spend three hours in the city and well worth the money.

We are always looking for something new and exciting to do as a group for our outing. This was the perfect event. it allowed us to be social with one another, while eating great food and learning a little about a part of New York that we were unfamiliar with

Have already recommended your walks to a friend travelling to New York next year. Did the Greenwich village walk a couple of years ago. Both guides were friendly and informative, loved the food as well.

We hope that another tasting tour will be added for our next trip to New York.

Have traveled to NYC several times. Loved this tour. Have also taken the other tour that is offered in the Village. Found both to be very informative and interesting. Guides were very organized. Enjoyed the whole experience. Would highly recommend it.
