Great food, amazing history!

Although the food was amazing ( and there is LOTS of it so don't eat before), our favourite part was learning about the area from a great tour guide (and history of the city) - and we had the chance to ask all questions and have them answered very thoroughly! She was well prepared and very professional - I would recommend the tour 100%.

great time. we were a group of 7 women celebrating a birthday. We all loved learning about greenwich village and try some delicious local restaurants. Tour guide was great and informative. Perfect mixture of learning about the neighborhood, trying great food and just having a fun day.

The tour was one of the highlights of the trip. My group was looking for something different as we have visited all the major NYC sights several times and this tour was just what we wanted. Our guide was informative, personable and fun. The food was delicious at every stop.

Such a fun experience!

We took the Heart of the Village tour on Monday, December 8th. Susan, our guide, was a gem and made the tour so interesting and informative. Food was great (Cuban food was the BEST!) and despite it being freezing cold, the entire group had a great time. I highly recommend and will do a different tour next time I'm in town.

Loved both Greenwich Village Food Tours
Fri, Dec 5, 14   12:30 PM Coughlin3 Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband, my parents and I loved the tour! My father loves cooking, my parents love good food and we love history. The stories that the tour guide shared were rich with history and interest. The sampling of food gave us a wonderful idea of the variety available in the area and a new love of shopping and eating local. We felt we were part of a secret group that knew more about the area than some locals. Thank-you!

This is our second food / walking tour and once again we were not disappointed. Our tour guide Susan was friendly, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. These tours offer such great value. . fun to learn about history of the neighbourhood while eating tasty treats along the way. Can't wait to come back for our next tour!!

I totally recommend this tour. Tried new foods that were delicious. Our tour guide, Susan, did a fabulous job informing everyone about the history of each place we went to and about Washington Park. She was also great about answering any questions and was very helpful after the tour was over and was willing to take us back to any shops that we past along the way. I would definitely do this tour again!

Great, but lagged on a bit
Sat, Nov 29, 14   12:00 PM roseless Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
This is my 3rd tour (I've also done Nolita and Original Village), so I obviously am a big fan of this company! But I did feel that this tour lagged on for a bit. It ran 1/2 hour over, which makes a big difference when the tour itself is already 3 hours. Also, this tour had less stops I believe than previous tours that I'd done, so it would be better if it wrapped up when it was supposed to - especially since many people doing these types of tours have other tourism plans and schedules to meet! With all that aside, I thought this tour was excellent. It was a little strange that we don't get an artichoke pizza slice at artichoke pizza, but I understand that they are too heavy to have in addition to all the other food we eat on the tour. Keep up the good work!
