This tour was the highlight of my last trip to NYC...I specifically enjoyed stepping out of my normal zone, visiting an area that I never experienced during the countless trips prior. Our guide was amazing: knowledeable, entertaining and engaging from the start. This tour is a perfect place to start if one is looking to branch out from the Times Square crowds. It opened my eyes to a new range of options and gave me a true feel of New York. The food itself, simply put, was awesome. The tour served as an appetizer sampler, giving small hints of the treaures that could be discovered in the Village. Risotto, rice balls, cheese, pizza...my mouth waters as I recall the trip. Only two words can describe this tour...GO NOW!!

Great ... As Always!

As a veteran of NYC Food Tours, what can I say, except that it was fabulous, as always. It's a wonderful activity, particularly with friends who have never before taken a NYC food tour. The guides are GREAT (Cindy! Bert!), food samples are generous, information is enlightening - always a perfect way to spend a half-day. I've done all the tours, several times each, and a FOOD TOUR is top priority on all visits to NYC!

We weren't sure what to expect on a food tour but this was awesome!!! Our guide was Kurt- he was wonderful!! He gave us so much information about the area, he was so witty and made it so much fun. The food was all delicious and we were stuffed! All in all, it was a great experience and we'd recommend it to everyone. (I don't know if you can request a specific guide but if so, request Kurt!!)

The tour guide was very personable and well versed in the West Village area and the local fare. The tour was fun as well as informative and the various servings of food were just delicious! A wonderful way to spend the afternoon outdoors - eating drinking and learning about such a charming part of the City.

Tour was informative, fun and full of food.

The tour guide, Curt, was fab.

Would suggest take the tour as early as possible in your trip as you'll want to go back and revisit the food establishments!

This tour is highly recommended!

A very worthwhile experience

Despite continuous rain/sleet, the tour went ahead under the very capable leadership of Barri(e?). We visited some lovely shops/cafes/restaurants, all with their own unique style and providing quality produce, we sampled several during the tour. I had never tasted 'cannoli' before. We returned to 2 restaurants, 2 cafes and one shop during the days following the tour. Our guide also pointed out many places of architectural and cultural interest during the 3 hour tour. We will definitely book for other tours with this company on our next visit to New York and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and others.

Wonderful group outing for foodie friends!

We were a group of adults with teens who enjoyed this tour so much on a sunny mild day in March, eating delicious samples on the streets of Greenwich Village with our guide, and inside at Soy and Sake as well. We all learned so much and then spent time shopping at some of the stores we visited on the tour, and can't wait to try out our purchases together when we get home - don't know if we can create the same moments of food heaven back home, but we'll try. Our guide was helpful, informative, well-prepared, and patient too - would definitely do another one of your tours when we return to NYC again.

An excellent complement to any visit to NY

I joined up on this tour on a recommendation from a colleague and found this tour to be one of the highlights of my first trip to NY. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided information not just for the local food, but for the neighbourhood as well. The guide's enthusiasm for the tour and great humour made for a very pleasant experience. I will definitely be recommending this tour to others.
