Never thought of doing anything like this and was pleasantly surprised. I've been to this neighbhorhood dozens of times and never knew the history or the great restaurants to go to. The tour opened my eyes to some great restaurants that I'll certainly go back to.

This tour was excellent! Our guide, Susan, was friendly and knowledgable, and took us through lots of interesting local landmarks. The choice of eateries on the tour was designed to provide a flavor of the various ethnic offerings in the Village, and each stop was better than the last.

I live in New York and come to NYC regularly, and this is my first tour, but certainly not my last! This is a terrific value, and one that will leave you with a better understanding and appreciation of what this great city has to offer.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food tour and Susan, our guide, was excellent as were the samples of food we tasted. The many interesting facts she told us about The Village added to the occasion . We have visited New York many times so it was interesting to do something different. We will definitely go on one of your other tours on our next visit.

From the word "go," our tour was as informative as it was entertaining. The sampling of the various neighborhood foods was almost bested by the entertaining narratives provided by our guide, Barri. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in learning about the area's culture, food, architecture, and people.

My friend and I decided to take the tour as part of a weekend in NYC. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. The combination of a delightful tour guide (Raheem), wonderful, diverse tasting experiences, and information about the area made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I look forward to another walking tour on my next trip!

This is the 2nd tour that I have done (the first one was the Chelsea Market we did 2 years ago. This one did not disappoint at all. Excellent food (more than expected), great side notes and history. I highly recommend this tour to friends and fellow reviewers. The only negative about the tour (if you can even call it that), is that we didn't get Kurt as our tour guide, as hoped. But ours did a fantastic job!!! If you haven't had Kurt, he absolutely rocks. He is the best guide you will ever find, and is a gem. He is the reason we came back.

We did a similar tour last year and this year was even better. Guide (Barri) was wonderful and food was really good. The history parts were so interesting and loved the people stories. Would recommend it and would do it again.

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide was lots of fun and knew much about the neighborhood - both current and historical events. We went back to two of the selected restaurants for a full dinner and were completely satisfied.

We would do this tour again and look forward to doing the other tours offered by this company next time we're in New York City.
