Thoroughly enjoyed the 3 hours walking around the west village learning some of its history & more importantly getting to taste some delicious foods. Went back to various of the stores/restaurants on subsequent days- they were definitely worth a revisit! Marie, our guide, was fun and very well informed - I feel I've seen a bit more of NYC than the usual tourist sites. You won't regret booking!

This was a first visit to NYC for myself and my husband. The Food & Cultural Tour of Greenwich Village conducted by Heather ticked all the boxes for us. Not only did we hear some fascinating facts about Greenwich Village we tasted some fabulous local food too.Heather was a delightful guide . We were so pleased with this Tour that we returned to Greenwich Village twice afterwards,to shop and to eat at one of the Tour Eateries. This Greenwich Village Tour is great value and lots of fun.

Barry was an excellent guide. Not only did she give us information about the food choices but she told many anecdotes of the history of houses. Very enjoyable for my husband and myself

I thoroughly enjoyed the Greenwich Village Walking Food Tour. The samples of food were delicious and I was stuffed by the end of the tour (don't eat before you go). Plus learning about Greenwich Village was very interesting. I highly recommend this tour. The tranquil atmosphere of the Village was very pleasant as well. I couldn't believe I was in New York!

Kurt our tour guide was phenomenal, not only was he well versed in the history of the area, & the food, he was entertaining! I grew up in the area and came back with a friend who has never been to New York. It was a great way to get away from the busy tourist traps and get a personal view of the village. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about the local area and loves food. Next time I come back I would do another tour in a different area. Well worth the money and time. We definitly hit the best spots for pizza, canolies, and Murray's cheese shop is the best!!!

I really went on this tour for my wife because I knew she wanted to do it!

However, Marie (I think that was her name, but I may be mistaken!) made us all enjoy ourselves and I think we all learned a great deal about the area.

I will definitely be revisiting some of the places on the tour.

Besides the excellent food tastings, it was wonderful to learn something about the area, its culture, its inhabitants. Our guide was well informed and shared information so enthusiastically. She obviously enjoys conducting the tours. This tour gave me a nice snapshot of Greenwich Village that I would not have gotten any other way. Now I know what cannoli is and I love it!
