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.

A must while in New York

I recently took the GV food tour and had such a great tour. The group had 16 people so it was a perfect size to be able to hear our guide and be involved. The tour was more than just a food tour. We learned about the community, how the restaurants came about, what makes them unique...our tour guide knew so much it was incredible! We had a total of 9 tastings, I admit I was a bit skeptical with our first tasting being pizza, but wow it was incredible! The food at all 9 stops was incredible and by the tour end I was stuffed! A lot of the people on our tour had done a tour the day before and I will definitely do the Chelsea/meatpacking tour next time. I was also a solo traveler but felt completely comfortable with everyone and never left out....whatcan I say food brings ppl together. I give the tour 5 stars and highly recommend it!

Food Tour Delight

The food tour was in a word: awesome. The guide (Curt) was knowledgable, enthusiastic, personable, and fun. You can tell he loves his job!

The many places we visited were all fabulous. The variety of food was tremendous, as well as delicious. The guides knowledge of not only the food, but the neighbourhood was really appreciated. He told many interesting stories concerning the history and the people of the Village, that really expanded the tour.

My suggestion to all visitors is to go on a food tour in every city they vacation in. We will certainly do another food tour on our next trip to NYC.

The tour guide provided us the right amount of information, with a good balance among food, pop culture and History. Tastings left me more than satisfied in terms of both quantity and quality. I came back by myself the next day to the same area and felt as if I had lived there for a few weeks.

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!

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and gracious. I forget his name. He has red hair and comes from Canada.

He was funny, smart and entertaining.

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.
