Best Tour Ever

This was my second time taking this tour and I loved it just as much the second time as I did the first. Our guide Bert was the best - always helpful, full of information and even gave us recipes, and was funny too - Bert you are the best!! There was a wonderful variation of foods we tasted and places we went to. We came hungry and left stuffed! The shops and restaurants were within a small area so there wasn't that much walking to be done. The food we had was so delicious you always wanted more. I have been on two other of their tours, Little Italy and Chelsea Market which were also great but this one is my favorite. Walking through the streets of Greenwich Village was so nice seeing and learning about the history of the homes and the area. It's such an adorable little neighborhood to actually walk around and see how lovely it is. The residents do local shopping and the stores make purchases from each other - nice to keep it all in the neighborhood. We ate apps, main dishes and of course desserts. After the tour we went back to some of the shops and purchased some items. The store's employees were so friendly and gave us some pointers of various products and cooking. A great day in NYC and a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it!

Rjahim was exceptional in his sharing of knowledge re the various foods, history of the city, and cultures. He clearly loves his job, and it made for a very enjoyable tour. Our group included various ages, as well as interests, and even the most unenthusiastic members would recommend the tour! I would suggest doing a tour like this at the beginning of your time in NYC, which would enable you to make use of the recommendations for the remainder of time in the city.

Our tour leader, Rahem, was outstanding. All six adults in our group enjoyed his presentation. He was attentive to all members of the Tour Group (16 in all). The shops and restaurants we visited had great food samples. Enjoyed learning more about the Greenwich Village area.

We went on the Greenwich Village tour on Monday with Raheem as our guide and it was amazing. He was a great source of information for the food and history of the area while also being incredibly accommodating and relatable through his own experiences within life and the area. When going to NYC one of these tours is a MUST and the Greenwich Village tour should be your first taste of them.
