Our group was very lucky to have the best guide. Barri gave us so much information about the history of the Village. Make sure you bring your stretchy pants b/c you eat, eat and eat. The tour is definitely worth the money and I would do it again in a heart beat. Thanks!

The activity was not flexible or changeable

I booked 3 tickets to the 1:00p.m. Saturday tour 7/12. I was traveling from Indiana to New York city on vacation & was delayed 4 hours at the airport. I left a message at 9:00a.m. on Saturday to let the group know I would not be arriving in time to make the tour. The only option I was given was to buy 2 more tickets & get one free (another investment of $84.00 on top of the $110.00 I had already spent) I believe this is inflexible. I will not use the service again.

Having a New Yorker to tell you about the local food and the history of the area is something a tourist just can't get out of a Lonely planet.

Visited NYC for a broadway show on Friday and took this tour on Sat. It was one of the highlights of my weekend. Loved our guide, food samples and group. Will definately go back to some of the restaurants I saw on the tour. The landscape/historical part of the tour (in my opinion) was enchanting. It didn't even seem as though I was in NYC at times.

Tour guide was excellent. It is much more than just the food, this tour educates on the rich history. I was pleasantly surprised. I would highly recommend to others.

Cindy took us on a culinary adventure through Greenwich Village. It was one of the best walking tours I've done anywhere. She was delightful - fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

This tour was excellent! Our group leader, Ed, was friendly and knew about the area in detail. We learned a lot about the West Village and enjoyed great food as well. The food tastings were spaced so that we were full but not too full. We can't wait to go back on our own to try several of the restaurants. We also plan to take a different tasting tour in the near future. It was a highlight of our trip.

My second time!

I went on the first tour last summer with my nieces, I loved it so much and talked about it so much I purchased tickets for my husband and me. Again, loved the food and the information about old New York. The tour guide was great and knowledgable, but the first tour guide was a "true" New Yorker and enjoyed her jokes and stories more. I think a tour guide from New York is more what tourist are looking for. My husband enjoyed the tour and couldn't compare it with another and he had fun! I would go again when company comes in from out of town but will request a "New Yorker".

Worth the money, for sure.
