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.

Excellent second time out with Food Tours

This was our second tour. We did the Greenwich Village tour last summer. Enjoyed this tour even more than the first. Quantity and variety of food was good and interesting. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

We took the tour with an adult son and I probably would not recommend for small children.

Other than that, a fine way to see the village.

Definitely the highlight of our NYC trip

As if the food wasn't wonderful enough, the guide reveled us with historical and social details as we made our way through the area: Bob Dylan's former house, the denizens of Washington Square Park, the prices of townhouses on the market, the private Italian club with a shooting range in the basement. We had a wonderful time and the food (and mojito) was fabulous!

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..
