A definite must-do in NYC

All three of us had taken (and thoroughly enjoyed) the first Greenwich food tour a few months ago and were equaly enthusiastic about this one. Great guide (Barry, not Mary!), interesting information, excellent food. A great value and perfect way to learn about NYC. The next morning we returned to Cafe del Mar for a wonderful brunch. Good food at a very reasonable price.

We wish this kind of tours could be possible everywhere in Ny.Next time we´ll try another of your tours

We had this phenomenal guide, Barry, who took well care of us all, who informed us so well on cultural and gastronomical issues while we walked. We could not miss anything. We´ll remember New York after this, be sure.

Great guides, good information, too much standing

I loved the information that we were given about the area that we were in and the restaurants that we could return to to eat,d rink and derive entertainment from. The down part of the trip was a lot of standing around instead of walking or finding a spot where we could all sit and listen to the guides. The food was good and they accommodated individuals who were vegans and disliked spicey food. Very considerate. Some of the portions could have been larger or peraps have two small ortions of two different foods at the same location. I wold reccommend this tour to others in the New York area as something to do when they first arrived so that they had options for dinners and entertainment away from Broadway.

very good

The tour was very good. Barry seemed annoyed when I bought some food at a pasta shop. She told me three times that the tour would not wait. I agreed each time, saying OK, we'll catch up. The third time was REALLY annoying. The group had not left when my purchase was complete for reasons that have nothing to do with me. Therefore, at least two of the three naggings were superfluous.

Also, there was no bathroom stop on a three hour event.. Not so good for persons over sixty.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the food, the history, and the tour.

It was a great day. Knowledgeable guide (Barri) and trainee. I really didn't expect it to be as informative as it was on top of all the great food. We enjoyed it from beginning to end.

The presentor of the food tour was very good.

She was very knowledgeable about the area we were touring. The food was excellent. Greenwich Village is a culturally diverse neighborhood and it was reflected in the places where we had eaten.

Keep up the good work!

The tour provided fun and interesting insight into the culture, art, history and food of the Village. Wonderful way to spend an afternoon and explore food that you likely would not otherwise discover.

The food tour was our favorite planned event during our trip!!! Diana was knowledgeable and fun while being a complete professional. I would recommend the tour to anyone who loves food and would enjoy an afternoon of fun eating.
