Great time for something different to do

Having been to NYC several times, and looking to do something different, I booked this tour. We like local places to eat, enjoy walking, architecture, and history - so it sounded perfect. It was a great time. The tour guide, Nancy was very fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The food stops were high quality. They do serve a lot of food - so I recommend not eating breakfast, or eat a very light breakfast. And, pace yourself at the food stops, or you will get too full! I would definitely try another one of the tours in a different part of town when I return.

Could have been shorter, food more evenly spaced

We could have had less in depth detail about things and moved along a bit more quickly - 2hrs would be good. While the food was very good, the majority of it was served within the first hour and it seemed like alot; I had to throw some away, it was too much to eat.

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.

Ages 12 to 72 and all had a great time!

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.

Great food & tour guide

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.
