Susan met us in Monte's Trattoria and from the beginning we relaxed as we knew we were in great hands. The food was amazing and the tour was excellent and well thought out. We tried food from places we would never thought of going to and I wish we had done it earlier in our trip..

I took my three teenaged boys on this tour and they loved it. There was so much food, no one later asked, "Mom, what's for dinner?" You can't beat that! The sites, bites, and guide were wonderful. We will be back to try a third tour.

Barry did an amazing job and was very informative! Great way to eat your way through Greenwich Village and learn about that part of town. Previously took The Original Greenwich Village Tour. These tours were completely different and offered different historical facts along with different stops. Preferred The Original Village Tour (also with Barry as the guide!) over Heart of The Village if I had to pick one over the other, but recommend doing both!

One of our best NYC experiences!

Our tour was the perfect addition to our trip. Our tour guide was obviously a local and it showed. The pace was great and we really got to experience the village. The food was generously portioned. We were stuffed by the end. We've been to NYC from Canada many times; we even lived on the Upper East Side back in 2011. So,while we are tourists now, we still know the city quite well. We will go back to most of the restaurants on this tour next time we visit (likely next year).

I'd totally recommend this tour if you have three hours to spare!

The Heart of the Village Tour was the best part of my trip to New York. The food was great and we were definitely stuffed at the end. Laura was our tour guide and she was just wonderful. What a wonderful way to learn about the Village - history, architecture etc... The tour was a little more than 3 hours, but just flew by.

I highly recommend this tour. It would even be fun to do for solo travelers.
