We did the original Greenwich Village with Joanna who was sweet and charming; she made sure the tour was enjoyable for everyone. As NYC locals, we loved the anecdotes and FYIs that Joanna threw in throughout the tour. And the food was great!!!

Everything we ate was amazing but it was 90+ degrees out and spent a majority of the tour guessing real estate prices and being bossed to get out of the way by our guide, Diana. Would have enjoyed less stopping to talk about history and more food.

We were a little concerned about a 3 hour food tour but decided to give it a try. Robin, our tour guide, was terrific, knowledgable (about the food and the Greenwich Village generally) and fun. It was one of the highlights of our NY trip and really gave us some insight into the Village, its many terrific food options and its history. The food at each stop was splendid with the Refele Restsurant stop being the absolute highlight. Take this tour!! You will not regret it.

Food Tour of Greenwich Village

Two years ago my mother and I joined a Food Tour Of Greenwich Village and really enjoyed it. This year I returned to New York City with my husband and two adult children.

I was extremely keen for them to experience the tour... We are all real " Foodies" and I knew that my husband and children would be very interested in all the architecture and history of the area.

I found the tour even just as much fun second time around... if not, even more fun as I was able to take in even more facts about the community and it's roots. As I knew which food shops and restaurants we would be visiting, I could enjoy the anticipation of the various treats that were awaiting me!

As I had suspected, my family thoroughly enjoyed the entire tour from start to finish.

The food was all delicious and , knowing the history of each establishment made sampling their goods all the more tasty !

Our guide's name was Marie... We all agreed that she did an excellent job.

She was very warm and welcoming and managed to impart an amazing amount of information about the local area, it's history, it's inhabitants .. both historical and contemporary, the development of the businesses in the area and the architecture.

She was a wealth of information which she managed to impart to us in the most interesting way.

We found the tour to be a very sociable occasion . We were able to get to know our fellow tour members and chat to them over our snacks... thanks to Marie who encouraged a fun and friendly atmosphere.

We have returned home to the UK now after a fabulous trip to The Big Apple.

We all agreed that The Food Tour Of Greenwich Village was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.

We would highly recommend anyone visiting New York and thinking of taking some organised trips to book onto this tour and , whenever we are back again ( hopefully in the not too distant future) we would certainly join the tour again.

So much great food along with an energetic, fun guide. From the pizza to the cookie it was all sooo good. I recommend this tour to all visitors. Get out of Times Square and see the real New York and family run restaurants. We went back three time during our vacation to eat in Greenwich Village. We've traveled all over Italy/Sicily and the food in the village is as good or better.

We read a glowing report about this walking tour in our local paper and we were not disappointed. The food,the history and most of all our fabulous guide made this a memorable experience. Curt, our guide, took the time to chat to everyone and had the ability to include your interests in his talk. What a marvellous skill to have. It was as if you had your own personal guide.
