Greenwich Village is a tasty place!

We always suspected that Greenwich Village would offer a feast for the eyes and stomach. Now we know that it is true. My son and I truly enjoyed our stroll through the past and present day village. It seemed at first that the portions were going to be a bit scimpy but after the 8th or 9th sample we were wondering whether we would be able to last until dessert, but holy cannoli, it was worth waiting for! We will definitely return to the village and recommend the tour to other visitors. A special thanks to Barri for making our tour so much fun!

Our tour guide was Bert, and he was so much fun. I appreciated his sincere love of food and descriptions at each food stop because they were detailed without being snooty. He REALLY likes his job and is very good at it!

The food provided was high quality and way more food than I would ever eat for lunch. I wish I had not eaten breakfast!

Excellent value for $50.

Would definitely do this again and recommend to family visiting from out of town and to locals as well!

Greenwich Village

It was our first time at Greenwich Village and I thought the town was great. It has so many great places to eat and Marie did a great job explaining the culture and the description of the food. Though I was " lactose" and felt that I was able to eat "some" food I felt that a lot of the food choices had cheese ( cheese slices, cheesecake, riceball ( with lots of ricatto). My husband did eat my portion and enjoyed it very much. I thought it was nice to accomodate people that are vegetarians but it would've been nice if we would been able to pick our ' choices" ahead of time. Also, I liked that Marie took to us to many locations that were shaded ( it was in the 90's). The places that Marie recommended I went the next day and enjoyed the food very much!! I went back to Pizza Roma ( pizza with no cheese) and I got olive oil from Olive and Co. If I were to go back to New York I would stay in Greenwich village and felt it was the town I would enjoy the most. I would recommend the food and culture tour in Greenwich Village. Thank you!

We had been to NYC many times but had never experienced the Village. Heather, our tour guide, was so informative about the Village and we were surprised by the difference of the Times Square area and how quaint the Village was. Also, the food was very good and we hope to try some of the other food tours of NYC that are offered by your company.

This is my second food tour in NY and I am looking forward to the next one. Our tour guide Kurt was great. He had lots of information, and his delivery was flawless. I was impressed that he remembered everyone's name on the tour. We ate our way through Greenwich Village, and I loved every bite.

This was an interesting way to get to know a bit of history about the Village and to get a glimpse of its many offerings. Food tastings were extremely rich, each and every one of them. People who put tour together must have had iron stomachs. Highlight of tour was olive oil shop - very educational. Cindy, the tour guide was educated about the area, but was condescending to one of the women on the tour and made some politically incorrect comments that made me very uncomfortable. As tour guides go, she was fair at best.
