Raheem (sorry about the spelling) was an excellent guide! His knowledge of the area, great sense of humor and energy made for an entertaining experience. And the food stops were quite varied and delicious. Our fellow tour members were a very nice bunch which also added to the experience! I would definitely recommend this tour......especially with Raheem

Diana is a wonderful knowledgeable guide, who knows the Greenwich area, because she has lived there and knows all of the food stops. She described to us before each tasting what we were going to get and not one let s down. The food and people were great. I highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I loved the tour! Susan did an excellent job of providing historical and quirky information about Greenwich Village and the places we saw. The food items were yummy and perfectly varied and just the right amount! We have been to New York many times but this really gave us a new view of a neighborhood. We really enjoyed it and plan to do other food tours when we visit again.

Our stellar tour guide, Diana, expertly and with finesse guided our steps and palates through the amazing neighborhood of Central Village. My husband and I loved the experience - we wish that we lived closer to NYC so that we could return to this neighborhood and enjoy dinner at various locales - especially, Monte's. Diana's expertise, leadership and friendly manner enabled our tour group of 16 people to glide along the busy streets. The food and beverages we enjoyed were incredibly delicious. We will be talking about this day for many days to come. We will definitely recommend this tour to everyone we know!

Do not miss this tour!

Plan on learning a lot about Greenwich Village history, eating delicious food, and canceling any dinner reservations you might have had! You will be "stuffed" at tour's end. You will have enjoyed every minute of the tour and every morsel of food! And it's great fun to meet people from around the nation--and world. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

The last time I spent this amount of time in the Village was in the 60's, when I was in my 20's. Memories of The Village Gate, The Bitter End, Cafe Au Go Go, Cafe Wha?, The Gaslight Café, the Bottom Line now discussed with our "EXCELLENT GUIDE", makes me want to return and take the same tour with my wife. These recollections now shared with my 35 year old daughter who went with me on this tour was, how would say it in the 60's== GROOVY! UNREAL! Peace Bro!!!!
