Great food and tidbits about the area

The food was great, and the history and tidbits of info interesting but perhaps the tour was a bit too long - 3.5 hours from arriving to leaving.

I found the tour a highlight of my trip, returned to one of the establishments before we left. The tour guide was informative and friendly. I only wish we could have sat more, was a hot day and I got a bit wilted out on the sidewalk. That is my only complaint, otherwise, I really enjoyed it.

All five in our group have rave reviews about the tour. Our guide Rahim was amazing with his knowledge, his personable and humorous banter and his relationship with all the people in the restaurants and shops that we visited. We truly felt that we had an "insider's" view of Greenwhich and Soho. The food was great and the history lessons were amazing. We will definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something fantastic to do in New York and we will be sure to try another tour the next time we return.

Good selection of food choices and a great coffee bean store! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts about the area. This is more than just walking around and tasting food. Definitely recommend this tour. Food samples were just the right amount to satisfy lunch.

I went on the Chelsea Market tour a couple of years, but liked this one better. The tour guide provided a lot of great information about the food, history and culture of Greenwich Village. It was a great mix of food and it was all delicious!

Our tour guide was wonderful and I can't remember his name but this is the second tour I've taken with him. He is knowledgeable and gave us a terrific time.

just what we were looking for

we were looking for a bit of insight into the Greenwich area and we like food and drink so it fit the bill. i will say that i thought a couple of the restaurants were maybe a bit tired of hosting the tasting??! also liked that we went to a couple places that we didnt taste but learned about the business none the less.

Second time around

I had taken this tour a few years ago with family. A group of my friends wanted to experience NYC so I suggested this tour because it is loaded with spicy history and wonderful food. We were not disappointd. There was a lot of food, so much that we skimped on dinner. And the history is juicy too.

The best way to explore NYC neighborhoods!

We three old friends from elementary school days came for our second annual long weekend in NYC. Last year we took the Chelsea Market tour and loved it. Can't remember our tour guide's name but she was amazing - her humor and in depth knowledge of the history of the area kept us entertained the whole time. This year we chose the Central Greenwich Village tour and our tour guide was Raheem. He was so much fun and a really nice guy. He also had a very comprehensive knowledge about the area - some really obscure but very interesting facts that you'd never get out of a guide book. Thanks, Raheem! The food was delicious. We were completely full by the second last stop (didn't stop us from sampling it though) and the variety and quality of the tastings were just right. Honestly, it's by far the best way to tour a neighborhood. We'll be back for sure!
