Wonderful Samples.

Our tour guide, Mah??? Was excellent. The things he told us about the vicinity of the restaurants and the food preparation made the samples even more enjoyable. Our favorites were the pizza and Mexican. It was super that we were able to sit in air conditioning a few times. The atmosphere at Monty's was perfect. We did return to the tea shop to purchase two salt blocks which will be more than conversation pieces. Definitely recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful time!

The heart of the village food tour was a gift to myself my husband my brother and my sister-in-law from our parents. We had a wonderful time on the tour. It was a great way to spend the afternoon tasting delicious food, seeing and learning about different parts of the city, and spending time together. Our tour guide, Susan,was so knowledgeable and so personable we felt we could have talked to her all day. We will definitely book another NYC food tour again and Will bring our generous parents with us next time.

Susan was outstanding in providing food samples with great insight into the village culture. Two sit-down stops with wines/beer and mimosa availability made for an extra special food tour experience. Great spice store and coffee/tea store stops!

More than Greenwich Food--Greenwich History, Too
Thu, Jun 25  12:00 PM wendykkp Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The Heart of the Village tour went way beyond our expectations! Not only were we treated to foods that we otherwise would not have tried (e.g., brigadeiros), our tour guide Susan was a wealth of knowledge about the history, architecture and culture of the heart of Greenwich Village. We were especially excited to see Café Wha and the bar where Jimmy Hendrix played. The food tastings were abundant--my only advice is not to eat anything beforehand so that you won't be stuffed. The empanadas (chicken and spinach) and maduros from Cuba were exceptional. The tour pricing was also great--we felt that we received a tremendous value for the price paid. We highly recommend the tour, and are anxious to try others!

Great experience- a bit of history -a lot of food
Thu, Jun 25  12:00 PM Mforsyth25 Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 16 yr old daughter and I had an marvellous experience in the village. The guide was super knowledgeable and really nice. The group we we with was great ( we were the only foreigners). Loved the variety of food types, the little stops in the tea shop, coffee shop and pasta making shop. The walk around the village and Washington park were a bonus. Thoroughly recommend.

Great Food and Great Fun
Sun, Jun 21  12:00 PM Mayabeck Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The tour was an excellent walking tour full of information about the village. The food was great and the portions were plenty. We were full after the 2nd tasting but we trudged on:) There was several opportunities to have wine or beer and one opportunity for a prickly pear margarita. These were not included in the price but worth it. Our tour guide was funny, engaging and interesting. He did not lecture us and it was the right amount of talking. Just to let others know, there was not a lot of walking. You mainly stay in a very small area. Highly recommended.
