My two daughters, one granddaughter and I enjoyed the tour immensely. Our guide Barri (or is it Bari?) was funny, knowledgeable, and gracious. The food samples were delicious and the information about the people who "formed" the Village was fascinating. We loved going through the park and hearing more stories. While all the food was good, the salted caramel and chocolate macarones were outstanding! My daughter bought a box to take to her husband...but I know they never made it home!!

My husband and I have visited New York City several times but this was the first time we did this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Barri was an excellent tour guide -- she gave us lots of interesting information and had great knowledge of the history and culture of the area. We tasted lots of great food and didn't need lunch or dinner after the tour. We did go back to one of the restaurants that was featured on the tour and had an excellent meal. We feel like we know the Greenwich Village area much better now and have the knowledge of many good restaurants that we want to return to. GREAT tour and we would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC!!!

Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. Al of the restaurants seemed to be please to have us come by and their food was excellent. Was a very hot day but there were plenty of breaks and the guide brought water for everyone.

We had a very small group of 2 unrelated couples of 2 different age groups. Our guide (Susan) was very enthusiastic as well as informative. You could tell she loves her city and knows the really good places to see and enjoy a good meal.

Guide was entertaining with fact, folklore and food information imparted in a way that made the whole thing fun and informative. More than enough food for us and a great way to learn about the area. Highly recommended and would do this type of tour early into any trip. Good info for the rest of the stay.
