Don't eat before you go. Plenty of food and opportunity to sit/drink along the way. Great history/social stories by Susan and chance to shop after the tour.

Enthusiastic knowledgeable and very friendly guide named Sue. Great selection of food which was ready as soon as we arrived. Just enough down time to enjoy the food and the area. Best artichoke pizza I've ever tasted! Would definitely take another Zerve tour.

Have done all of the NYC Food Tours. Some tour leaders are more fun.

Our tour guide was Susan, She was superb! She was very knowledgeable about the area. There was a good variety of foods. Even saw Anderson Cooper. The mango lasse was divine. I can't say enough good things about this tour.

Susan was our Greenwich Village guide, and she was wonderful! We tasted WAY more food that we expected, and we went back to Greenwich Village the next day to spend more time at the places we visited. I would highly recommend this tour!

We did the Heart of the Village with Paulette. I booked this tour weeks (maybe months) before and have been ridiculously excited about it since. After all -- culture and food and a cool neighborhood to tour - what could be better? :-) It was all that and more.

Paulette was fun, entertaining, knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I would go again in a heartbeat if we went back ... probably another neighborhood just to try something new ... but we'd love to have Paulette again. Fabulous afternoon tour, and great value for the money. We were so full, we didn't even go out for dinner that night, just got a snack. :-)

One of our NY highlights!!!

We had a fabulous time!! Our guide, Paulette, was the best! Our son is a picky eater and there was no pushing food for anything that he didn't want to try! She shared so many interesting facts along the way! We also stopped at a few quaint stores in addition to food tasting! My family would have never found all these charms if we had not taken this tour! Small groups too! Highly recommend!
