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!

Well WORTH it.....

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!

Great afternoon - even in the rain!

We had a wonderful time despite heavy rain throughout the afternoon. But, if you are going on the tour during poor weather, be sure to dress for "outside tastings". Fortunately, we had rain gear on and so enjoyed the afternoon tremendously.

Great food and lots of inside scoop from a local.

This is my fourth Foods of NY Tour and I was again very happy to have spent my afternoon eating a variety of unique and delicious goodies and learning all about the area from a pro. Susan, our tour guide knew everything there was to know about The Village having lived there most of her life. These tours are great and I highly recommend them to everyone!

Great way to learn about an area

Our guide, Susan, was very friendly and knew the area well. We had a small group so it was very personalized and we had opportunity to ask any questions. LOTS of food! We were all absolutely stuffed and we really enjoyed being able to go into some establishments and sit for a bit. Covered a. Dry small area so no one should be concerned that it is a lot of walking
