Paulette was the most entertaining guide we ever had. It's a performance that could easily be on TV! Funny, very knowledgeable and witty the 3 hour food tour went by so quickly. Thanks to her we found fantastic little shops and restaurants that we didn't know existed. Would most definitely recommend!

Paulette was excellent. The food was good but not outstanding. This was a fun way to learn more about the Village and gwt recommendations of new places to eat. We will do another food tour with this company for sure. A relaxing way to learn more about NYC neighborhoods.

This was the best food tour we've ever taken. Our tour guide was wonderful. She was funny and so personable, and she gave so many background stories. The selection of restaurants was outstanding. We did the Heart of Greenwich Food Tour on July 2. Highly recommend!

A glimpse into the history of Greenwich Village along with an introduction to the many family owned ethnic restaurants in the area. Food was varied and delicious!

Not the Best Tour

Because of the exceptional experience that I've had on two of the other tours, I decided to go on a third. This tour was definitely not my favorite. Our tour guide was not near as good as the other two. None of the food, while interesting, stood out. The order of establishments on the tour was not a good choice, either. Having an oatmeal cookie at the beginning of the tour was not great. The variety was good. I would suggest the Original Greenwich Village Food Tour over this one.

Susan was excellent! Not only was she very knowledgeable about the Village, she also gave us plenty of hints about timing, food choices, etc. She displayed amazing flexibility when adapting to the quirkiness of the real world in which we were walking and managed to keep her sense of humour throughout. Very enjoyable. A lot of food on this tour. We weren't able to finish everything. Great choices to expose the culture of the Village. Well done!
