We took this tour with our 5 kids ages 10-17. We all enjoyed it. Our tour guide was excellent. Her name was Sephrah. She had a great personality and held all of our attention for 3 hours. Food was excellent, neighborhood was great and history given was very interesting.

This was an amazing experience! The food tastings and the historical tour were terrific. We really enjoyed learning about the culture of the area and even went back and spent an evening in the area on our last night in NYC. What a great way to spend an afternoon.

I loved the history narration as we walked around the Greenwich Village neighborhood. The restaurant staff at each establishment was friendly and prepared. Our tour guide, Diana, was funny and very caring. My mother was tired on her feet and Diana made an extra effort to accommodate her needs. My favorite, though all were excellent, was Joe's Pizza. I will definitely go back there again!!

Review of Greenwich Village Tour

My friend and I joined a group led by Barry. She was very informative and enjoyabe. All the food tastings were unique and tasty. Also she had immense knowledge about the historic part of the Village. My only recommendation would be to have somewhere to sit, not necessarily in the establishment, but perhaps on a bench or a wall. It was very tiring for those of us who are olde to have to stand on a street corner and eat something.. You might decrease the number of places and have at least two sit down opportunities. It was nice having time for a glass of wine. A possible idea would be a senior tour and a regular tour. Over all, we highly recommend it and would do another one. Nelda H. Scroggs Clyde, NC

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.

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.
