Tour guide ( Burt ) extremely knowledgeable re history of the area and the restaurants. Wide variety of establishments visited and the quality of the food was first class. It wet our appetite and we returned again and again to the Greenwich Village area.

Tasty Food & Informative Guide

We took the Greenwich Village tour - food was extremely tasty and our guide was sharp - we ate well and walked away feeling like we knew something about the neighborhood as well as why the food tasted good. We had a bit of a logistical snag (our fault) and working through that was a snap as well.

The leader Bert was amazing--very knowlegeable and funny! The food was awesome, lots of interesting trivia, loved the stuff about the architecture and buildings we were looking at and even had a celebrity sighting on our tour! Would definitely recommend, already plan on doing some of the other tours offered and we've told our friends about it! They were very accommodating (I'm a vegetarian) and everything on the tour was timed perfectly--not too long, not too short--just right amount of time to get it all in! They thought about bathroom breaks, every detail was well planned out. Took my husband who is a foodie for his birthday and he LOVED it!

Great way to see Greenwich Village

We were in New York for a weekend in October and took this tour. What a great experience! Our tour guide -KerriAnne was wonderful. We saw and found out things about the Village which we would never have seen on our own. The food samples were wonderful, I was trying to describe to friends the appetizer we had at La Palma,it was so good. I had wanted to sample New York pizza and cheesecake while we were there and on this tour we got the best.

We took a cruise from New York and told everyone we talked to about the tour. If/when we come back we will do it again!

Too long / not enough about food

This is a three hour walking tour that could be done in 90 mins! Loved the Greenwich village and the food places around but tour guide seemed to know more about the history of the place than the food. Finally after 1 1/2 and only two tastings our group left and just did it on our own which was much faster.

Amazing food intermingled with local knowledge

Our tour guide (Karrie Ann, I believe) was wonderful. So knowledgeable but how she presented everything was what made her stand out. It was so conversational. You didn't feel like you were on a tour. Instead I felt like I was spending an afternoon with a friend who brought me around this wonderfully historic part of town and while walking along, taught me little known facts that were interesting and made the neighborhoods come alive.

I feel like I truly know the area and I want to bring others the next time we're in NYC to do this tour as well. I think it was great, not at all intimidating but quite the opposite as I felt I was walking along with a friend (or group of friends).

We had a family outing with 4 brothers and the wives. I was the only one that had been on this tour before and again, it did not disappoint me or any of the others! It was a beautiful day and we had a great tour guide and the humor, history and fodd were all outstanding! Keep up the great work!
