Wonderful Day!

We had a great time! I would have wished for more history from the places selected. The pizza stop was odd to me - if it needed to be a stop it should have been what the place was known for. All in all I would definately do it again.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The food samplings were wonderful and varied throughout the Village. Our guide was very knowledgeable. I took the tour with a bad ankle, and the walk was not taxing on my foot. This was our third tour with this company and I recommend them highly.

Exceeded Our Expectations

Visiting this area was of the village was really exciting. We loved the blend of food, history, local lore. I look forward to participating in other tours with you. Susan was a wonderful tour guide; fun, funny, responsive, knowledgeable and accommodating.

That said, having a wider tasting from various carb & cheese tastings (margarita pizza, grilled cheese, pasta and cheese) to a more adventurous selection of food - with less carbs would be welcome, e.g. Mamooud's

Loved the tour. My only complaint is that we went to Artichokes, which is famous for its artichoke crusted pizza, and were served plain old pizza. I would have liked to try their specialty instead of getting a slice of pizza i could have gotten anywhere in Manhattan.

Loved the tour but found it to be a bit crowded. Hard to gather everyone to listen on the streets when there is 12 of us. Lots of food - pace yourself! Overall glad we did it

I thought it was an awesome tour that didn't leave you hungry. My hunger was fulfilled. Great portions. It would have been nice if 2 to 3 drinks were included, other than a bottle of water.

Our guide was Barri, and she was the reason we had such fun! She was obviously very experienced and knowledgeable. We will take another tour next year when we come to NYC, and we will search for tours with Barri! Thank you again for a really excellent afternoon in the Villlage.

Our guide Diana was fabulous. Very fun tour. We went as a family. My older teens loved it but the 10 year old was a little bored. The food was fantastic and the portions were huge. Be prepared to eat a lot!!!!! All the neighborhood history and facts were great. I will recommend to friends.
