A highlight not to be missed

I went on this last month with my sister and niece from Mobile AL and we loved it so much I told my friends we needed to do it again. They had not been and it gave me such a fantastic feel for Greenwich Village I wanted to share the experience. The food was wonderful and a nice eclectic mix. Best of all was Susan V, our guide. She is a New Yorker and was irreplaceable in putting meat on the bones of this tour. She is smart, engaging, welcoming and FUN. I will do this company's food tours every time

I visit NYC. Don't miss it. By the way, you get terrific bang for your buck. Thanks, Susan. It was a blast!

Great Tour - would like more Food History

Our tour of the Village and Soho was great. We did want more food history about the origination of the different ethnic groups in the area however. We liked the tidbits about pop culture and famous people but we felt that the tour promoted food and that's what we wanted to learn about. Our tour guide was okay - we felt she repeated rehearsed lines. All this being said, it was a fun 3 hours. We would do this again and recommend but we also look forward to another perspective. The drinks at our sit down tasting were a bit pricey for lunch.

We had a wonderful time walking around the village and Soho and learned so much about the architecture, the restuarants and the food. The tour guide was personable, knowledgable and kept things moving at a terrific pace. The sample foods were delicious and the overall experience was one we would recommend highly to friends and family.

Thank you for a great time.
