We were a group of 6 celebrating a birthday and Thanksgiving, since we all wouldn't be together for the holiday.

Barri was our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The 3+ hr tour went very quickly.

The foods we tasted were delicious. Even though we are from NY, we very rarely get into the city. This was a fun way to discover a new neighborhood.

Our family of 5 went on the Greenwich Village Food Tour. My sons are 10, 12 and 15. I was a little worried about them being on a 3 hour food tour. But they had a great time. Mason, our tour guide, kept it interesting and fun and knew so much about the culinary history of the Village. We had a delicious variety of food and just the right amount at each stop. It was one of the highlights of our visit to NYC.

The tour had delicious food stops. It was an easy walking tour. Barri, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Not only did we sample food, we also learned about the history of the area and places we visited. Barri taught us about the architecture of the area and movies and television shows that were filmed there. My family throughly enjoyed every minute!

We spent 3 fantastic hours with our fun/hip/sardonic guide touring Greenwich Village eateries and meandering through it's charming streets. It was a great combo of food, info, gossip and hilarity. Loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the Village, it's food and a bit of it's history.

My husband and I can't adequately describe how much we enjoyed this tour. It was a great time walking through and learning about Greenwich Village; the food was all delicious; Bert was hilarious, totally approachable and friendly.

After we left, we both agreed that we would do the exact same tour in a heartbeat. It's one of those experiences that's hard to describe, but if you like fun neighbourhoods, amazing food and a fun outing for the afternoon, this is definitely for you.

Lastly, after the tour, we stayed in the neighbourhood and went to two (yes, two!) other pizza places for supper(s). I'm glad a friend recommended this tour because otherwise we likely wouldn't have gone to Greenwich Village. It's now one of my favourite areas I've ever visited!

unfortunately would not recommend this

Eating off paper plates on the sidewalk ensures cold food and an uncomfortable situation. For the price, we felt that the food offered was the cheapest items possible, not representative of the establishment and certainly didn't make one want to return. Why serve meatball from pasta and fish place? I've been to this restaurant before and thought it was very good but didn't feel like this would have made me want to go back. the tour director tried to give some historical facts which we really appreciated and hoped there would have been more of that. I appreciate that the local restaurants want this to be a sales pitch for their establishments but unfortunately that's all this felt like. I don't blame the tour guide, I am sure she was doing as she had been directed, but it is sad that it felt like the owner was "pocketing" a lot of money and giving very little value. I don't usually respond to these surveys in such strong terms but felt that people should be aware of this particular event company.

Great way to see a part of NYC that we would not otherwise have gotten to on our quick trip.

Thanks and loved the food and the history.

Marie did a great job:)
