Loved the experience! Took the Central Greenwich tour with 3 friends from out of town and all agreed it was a highlight of their New York City visit. Diana, our tour guide, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, the tour was well organized, and the food was very good. Especially enjoyed visiting the small food shops that were included on the tour. Definitely recommend.

Diana was extremely knowledgeable as she pointed out all of the interesting facts throughout the Village. The ride home was interesting as each person from ages 12 to 72 remembered different facts that she taught us througout the day. Our group consisted of 7 people from 12 to 27 and 7 people from 45 to 72...highly recommend this tour for everyone. Perfect way to spend Father's Day...eating and drinking for 3 hours.

I can not wait to go back to NYC to do all the other food tours with New York Tours. Our tour guide, Susan, was super friendly and informative. Not only did we eat 8 different types of food from different cultures, I learned a lot about the Greenwich Village area. I grew up right outside of NYC and thought I knew all about it, but nope, I learned so much. It also showed me more local shops and restaurants that I will visit again.

Enjoyed the tour very much. My sister from California accompanied me. The weather was great and all the food was great everywhere we stopped. This is my second time taking this tour and enjoyed it as much as the first time.

Informative, Large Portions of delicious samples

I enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was friendly and informative throughout. Covered a good amount of territory of NY. The restaurants that we toured had excellent food with a culinary twist. All of it was good!

The only downside, is that I wish the tour did not include so much of the "culture" part. (I'm all about the food!) Although, I enjoyed the tour of Washington Park, I feel that part could have been shorter and maybe that time could have been spent lingering a little more at one of the restaurants chatting with others, or one of the gourmet food shops for quick shopping. Other than that, I really enjoyed this tour!
