My sister & I had a great time! Even though we are NYer's we sampled some amazing food and drinks from restaurants we had never been before. I definitely would recommend the food and culture tour and will myself be back for other tours.

This is a fun and interesting tour. All the food was delicious and plenty of it. The sit down places are very nice and fun to meet other members of the group.

There was MORE food than expected - great variety and ALL delicious! Susan, the leader was personable and knowledgeable. Amount of walking and number of stops was great. One of our favorite things we did in NYC! Would definitely go on another one! Thankds!

Good tour

This was my third food tour with this company. As always, the guide was professional, knowledgeable and friendly.

The food was plentiful and with a few exceptions, overall, tasty. That being said, I must admit that this tour did not seem as enjoyable as the first two. For this one, I felt that we ate too much on the street without really feeling the experience of each restaurant by going in and sitting down as much as the other two tours offered.

Regardless, this is still a great way to introduce out of town guests to a sampling of what New York has to offer.

This is my third food tour...and I will do another one the next time I go to NYC. I have recommended these to many others. It is a great learning experience about the neighborhoods in NY while sampling some delicious foods.

Interesting blend of history of the area and great food tastings of the different ethic groups who are living here. Our guide was knowlegeable, friendly and made accomodations for the different walking speeds of the group. A great way to be introduced to a neighborhood in NYC!

Diana, the tour guide, is a NYC resource on a variety if subjects far exceeding just the tour we were on. The food is great and divergent in taste. The area of Greenwich Village is very interesting and we learned a lot about famous folks that started out there. People in the neighborhood , beknownst to the tour guide participated as well.

A unique well-rounded experience not to be missed. We will be doing this again.

Don;t take this tour.

Tour guide spent a great deal of time discussing her experiences in Greenwich village as a young girl. I did not pay $156 to hear that. I wanted to see important places, find out who lived(s) where, what goes on or went on in these places, and sample food other than all carbohydrates. The China Town tour if by far more interesting and certainly more flavorful. I felt that the tour guide was getting a kick back on alcoholic drinks sold at various venues we stopped at. Not your best tour.

Delectable Morsels of Food and Insider Information

The Central Greenwich Village Food Tour was recommended by friends, and we're so glad we took their advice! Want to sample a true slow cooked Italian pasta and gravy? Love foods from India and Cuba? Always searching for that perfect NY slice? Enjoy insider information about where noted celebrities lived during their "days in the Village?" If so, you will truly relish this tour. Susan, our guide was extraordinarily knowledgeable and kept the group (around 16 total, I think) moving at an enjoyable pace. We sampled food from at least six diverse eateries while Susan filled us in on the history of the restaurants and interesting information about the surrounding neighborhood. Our new goal is to eat a full dinner at each of the restaurants on the tour!
