Central Village tour was outstanding

We recently took the central Greenwich Village food tour and loved it. The tour guide was fantastic- he gave us a wonderful history of the area, individual buildings, and fun facts about past and current owners of a unique assortment of establishments. We took in the flavor of this slice of NYC figuratively and literally . The food samples were varied and generous, and the venues were all unique.

We did the original Greenwich Village tour 2 years ago and loved being back to experience this one- looking forward to doing the rest!!!!

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the restaurants and surrounding areas. He had a great sense of humor and he really enjoyed sharing all that information with us.

Loved the Central Village and SoHo Tour that I took with my husband. A very knowledgeable and entertaining guide led us to the stores and restaurants with the most delicious treats. I can't wait to go back and enjoy the food with my friends and family.

Amazing value for tour and tastings

Come with your appetite! Aside from a meager serving of bolognese sauce at Monte's (opt for the pesto instead), this tour offers exemplary food tasting opportunities and a very cool tour of this NYC neighborhood including a curbside peek at Anna Wintour's townhouse. Our tour guide, Susan, was phenomenal, her energy and enthusiasm for the area and its food highlights did not waiver despite temps in the 90s..

Great Tour - Worth the Money

We enjoyed our guide and the tour was supposed to last 3 hours and it went about 3 1/2 hours. The tour guide was very informative and provided a very pleasent experience. She did not rush us and all of the food we tasted was wonderful. We weren't sure we were going to like the Indian food tasting and we came away really liking it.

We live in NJ and had always talked about taking a tour like this - finally did it and we are now looking forward to our next tour.

My husband,son and I tremendiously enjoyed our tour. The food was great, but more importantly, the tour guide was terrific and showed knowledge of the surrounding environment and history. Not only would I recommend it,but look forward to going on it again either with family or friends.

Our daughter has lived in the neighborhood for several years and joined us for the tour. We all enjoyed the tour and all of the food choices. All the food was very good and the samples were not stingy. It was a fun afternoon and time well spent.

Great village tour!

We loved this tour! The gentleman who gave the tour was very knowledgeable about eateries, neighborhoods, and local history. He had also apparently been a food writer and a good cook himself, and so he enthusiastically shared all kinds of stories about how different foods were prepared. He had a great sense of humor, and kept us laughing, which helped when the hot weather seemed to slow down our spirits. He was also very considerate; given the warm temperatures (near three digits) that day, our guide found ways for us to stand in shade, or stay longer indoors where it was cooler. A lot of people along the way seemed to know him and think the world of him-- and we could see why! This was really an excellent tour. We look forward to returning to the village and exploring in more detail some of the places we saw on this tour. People like our guide make a neighborhood come alive.
