Had a wonderful tour! Our tour guide was excellent! Not only did you go to different eating establishments, he gave us info on the neighborhood history! We visited 7 establishments and had tastings at 6 of the seven. The tastings were plentiful and actually large portions not just a sample! I definitely would recommend this tour as part of a trip to NYC! It was a highlight for me and when I go back I will go again!

Good food, good company, interesting tid-bits of NYC history. Wish a bit more time between eating establishments. Food is good, just hard to eat so much in so little time!

Our guide was totally awesome on the Village food tour. I think his name was Rahim. He had a lot of energy and personality. He responded to the feel of the group rather than giving us a canned tour. His phone suggestions were awesome!

1960s Greenwich Village comes to life.

Barri sets the bar for all NYC guides - Food Tour and otherwise. Smart, savvy, and in tune with the whole group. She is not a frustrated actor - just a very knowledgeable guide intent on giving the group the best tour possible.

The 7 tastings were wonderful. Each one topped the last. The three plus hours flew by and we learned so much. It was easy to imagine the folks of the 60s hanging out there. Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul and Mary, beatniks...very "cool." Lots of little factoids to make you laugh and feel like you had a glimpse into the past.

My 3rd Food Tour and I hope many more to come. Loved it!

Outstanding way to take a cultural bite of the Village! Enjoyed a wonderful variety of foods and our guide Susan was awesome. We would gladly do it again. Don't plan to eat again until the next day though, we ended up canceling our dinner plans!

We are back in Vienna after truly beautiful and very inspiring days in

NYC, where the Village Food&Culture Tour formed a very important part of our great experience. We

quoted it so many times and all our friends know already about the

awesome tour we did. Susan was so helpful and knowledgable. Highly recommended!

Beautiful day in The Village

Susan was our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable of the neighborhood. We tried an eclectic variety of tastings, all well explained by Susan. Make sure you come hungry as you will be full at the end of the tour. 2 of my favorites were the empanadas ( I believe ) spinach w/cheese ( favorite ) and chicken. Also delicious fried plantains. You can purchase an alcoholic beverage at the places that offer them. There's a man rolling cigars at the front of the restaurant (named Cuba) that is given out no charge. Also really enjoyed the pappardelle bolognese, fabulous! The pasta was @ Monte's. The other tastings were delicious also ( Indian breakfast wrap, for instance). I would like to reiterate was a very cool and informed our guide Susan was.
