I did the Chelsea market tour a few years ago and was so impressed with the guide's knowledge and engaging way of sharing. The Greenwich Village walking tour was just as good. It was a great and tasty way to get to know a little about the area. The tastings were delicious and plentiful, though heavy on the carbs.

My husband and I took this tour on a 5 day visit to New York City - it was better than we'd imagined. Our guide, Susan was full of non stop information about the food and general history of the area. The food samples were delicious and very generous, our only complaint was that we we're so full by the end of the tour! The selection of food was varied and we left feeling like we had had a great overview of a part of town that you could spend years and years exploring. Highly recommended.

Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, upbeat, and kind. He gave us much information quickly without hemming, hawing, or fracturing grammar. The food was varied, delicious, and provided in generous quantities. If I'm ever lucky enough to return to New York, I will take another of these tours.

What a fantastic way to look around an area by visiting the cuisines that make up the local culture. Our guide was knowledgeable on the area, humorous and generally a great host. Would most definitely go on one of their tours again.

We went on the Village food tour on our last full day in New York. It was most enjoyable. Our guide, Susan, was friendly and knowledgable about her subject, as well as a lot of other facts about New York that we were interested to learn. On top of that, the food was delicious.

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.
