We are 2 families with 4 teens. It was fun, delicious and interesting to all. Super hot day and our guide made sure we were well hydrated and in the shade. We did the tour on the last day for our final hi-lite. We all agreed it would have been bettter to do the tour early on so we could have gone back to eat full meals at the various restaurants.

I loved Susan our well spoken and welcoming tour guide . She gave us all of the interesting cultural info on the village. The food was so good and I was surprised that we got so much! Do not eat for about 4 hours prior to this tour . Expect to have fun , learn a lot about the neighborhoods history and whats going on currently. . The walk is easy and Susan kept us in the shade most of the time . This was my 2nd tour with this company . I'm looking forward to learning about a new neighborhood next time I visit !

The tour was so great. We truly enjoyed seeing the village through the eyes of a local. Our tour guide was great. He really knew the area, the food, and the history. This tour was worth every penny, and we went on a very hot day in August. We returned to the area after the tour to eat and buy some things from shops. It really enhanced our trip to New York by showing us a part of the city in a way we would never have seen it otherwise.

Our guide, Raheem, was excellent. Fun, funny and knowledgeable. He kept us in the shade as much as possible since it was 90 degrees. Food was fantastic.

The tour was a good length, and the amount of time between tastings was perfect. Our tour guide, Susan, was wonderful. She was very friendly and informative, and gave us a very good feel for the area. And the food was excellent!!

We were a group of two local moms and our sons (ages 12 and 15) and a nephew from Chicago (age 15). It was so much fun. We learned about the history of the Village, some about the architecture, some about the cultural influences, and sampled lots of food, in very generous portions, from great places representing many cuisines. Our guide, Susan, was lovely and very enthusiastic. We all had a great time.
