Must do

We had been recommended to take this tour and I must say from the moment we met our tour guide -sorry I can't remember her name - but she could remember all our names and there were 14 of us!

We got a great insight into the village as it was and as it is today.

The food was amazing, but be warned don't have lunch beforehand! The tastings were not the normal tasting size portions! The size of the group was perfect. I would say to anybody it is a must do!

We enjoyed this tour immensely and already have recommended it to two of my colleagues who will be visiting New York in the next few months. The food was outstanding and our Tour Guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the area. I thought the cost was great value for what we were offered.

We all enjoyed the tour with Susan very much...lots of fun facts! The food was delicious and more than we expected.

I would highly recommend this tour for adults, young and old. I do not think it would be a good idea for children under 12.

Great way to get to know the real New York.

I live locally in CT and had a group of girlfriends in from the Midwest for the weekend. I find myself learning so much about the real history of New York by taking these tours. I gave my friends a car tour of the major sites before the tour, then we spent the rest of the day doing this and shopping in Soho. All of my friends loved this tour. Our tour guide Diana (I think) was exceptionally well versed with the local history having grown up in the neighborhood. She was fun and animated. The tastings were terrific too. This was my second tour with this group. I would actually like to take all of the rest of them personally as I think they are that fabulous!
