Great, but lagged on a bit

This is my 3rd tour (I've also done Nolita and Original Village), so I obviously am a big fan of this company! But I did feel that this tour lagged on for a bit. It ran 1/2 hour over, which makes a big difference when the tour itself is already 3 hours. Also, this tour had less stops I believe than previous tours that I'd done, so it would be better if it wrapped up when it was supposed to - especially since many people doing these types of tours have other tourism plans and schedules to meet! With all that aside, I thought this tour was excellent. It was a little strange that we don't get an artichoke pizza slice at artichoke pizza, but I understand that they are too heavy to have in addition to all the other food we eat on the tour. Keep up the good work!

Diana was a terrific guide, proving an insiders perspective on the history of Greenwich, both the glamorous and not so glam. The food tasting provided a wide range of samples, and no dinner was needed that night! Three hours flew by and we wanted more.

My group and I fully enjoyed our food tour on Saturday. Our guide worked at 100% for the 3.5hours we were together. Other than the Artichoke Pizza restaurant, we throughly enjoyed our food and the quick and friendly service we received. We learned a great deal about the neighborhood and its history, which added to.our appreciation of the experience.

I loved this experience. I loved all of the food, but I loved the information we learned about

the neighborhood. Our guide was very enthusiastic. We had an other ground with us that we not

very easy to be with, but she handled them perfectly. I can't wait to try another tour next time I

am in the city.

Even the wet, difficult conditions did not detract from the enjoyment of this experience. The tour director, Susan was a passionate, well informed and relaxed tour director, taking us to memorable and iconic businesses in the Greenwich village

Enjoyed it a lot. Our only complaint would be that it was bone chilling. We were all very cold but tour was great.
