We all enjoyed the tour with Susan very much...lots of fun facts! The food was delicious and more than we expected.

I would highly recommend this tour for adults, young and old. I do not think it would be a good idea for children under 12.

I live locally in CT and had a group of girlfriends in from the Midwest for the weekend. I find myself learning so much about the real history of New York by taking these tours. I gave my friends a car tour of the major sites before the tour, then we spent the rest of the day doing this and shopping in Soho. All of my friends loved this tour. Our tour guide Diana (I think) was exceptionally well versed with the local history having grown up in the neighborhood. She was fun and animated. The tastings were terrific too. This was my second tour with this group. I would actually like to take all of the rest of them personally as I think they are that fabulous!

Our tour guide, Susan, was punctual, efficient and personally knowledgeable about the area of our tour. She gave us a sense of the area that we would never get on our own. Susan encouraged questions and spent time with each group of guests to get to know them during the course of the tour. The samplings of food were substantial. The tour far surpassed our expectations in the quantity of food we received and the quality was excellent. We would highly recommend this tour to our friends and family and look forward to the other tour offerings.

When I booked this tour for myself and my 2 girlfriends I had no idea what to expect. We were visiting from Canada and of course wanted to take in as much as possible of the New York Experience. Well, this was certainly one of the best decisions we made. From the get go, Susan, our guide, was amazing! Not only was she incredibly informative on the food and the history behind each place that we visited, but her knowledge about the history of the village was so informative. She was engaging in her conversation and so animated. I felt as though I was walking the Village with a friend.

The food was diverse and delicious. The "tasters" were generous and so as a result we were all full rather fast. I suspect however, that this was not such a bad thing!

We all appreciated the little stops where one was able to sit down and enjoy a meal and perhaps a beverage. I think we all expected to be walking much more than we actually did, but this was a welcomed change to our tired legs from previous days.

We all agreed that it was an incredible experience, one that we would and have suggested to other travelers to New York City.

A very big thank you to Susan (my sister from Hungary!) We all wish you the best and thank you again for a great tour!

Kathleen, Carrie and Cinzia from Canada!
