He was a very enthusiatic tour guide that was very informative. He had no problems answering questions and gave us great ideas as to how to have a fun night or day in the town. I would definitely reccommend this tour as well as the amazing tour guide we had. It was a success that exceeded my expectations.

Heading to San Diego next month and looking for a tour similar to this one to learn about the city. Great fun and food--even in the rain!

Take the tour only if you enjoy food tasting

Overall, I had a good time on the Greenwich Village Food Tasting and Cultural Tour and the tour guide was very comical. I really enjoyed tasting the various foods on the tour (some food tasting stops were better than others though) and the tour did a great job of accomodating a vegetarian diet. If you enjoy food tasting and plan on revisiting the Greenwich Village area during your trip, then this is a really good tour to take because the tour guide gives you restaurant recommendations.

However, if you are taking the tour to learn about the culture/history of Greenwich Village, then I would recommend taking another tour because I didn't learn very much about the area. Although this is a 3 hour tour, a lot of the time is spent waiting for the tour guide to go into the restaurant and bring out the food to the group. Also, I was hoping to explore more of the Greenwich Village area, but you basically stay on the same street during the tour.

I think this tour is overpriced for what it is.

Marie was well informed and shared her W Village experiences with us, which made the tour very interesting. I have recommended this tour to others.

Marie was GREAT!!! - She obviously enjoys her role as 'Guide' and is very good at it.

I was pleasantly surprised that the food portions ere as large as they were. I will send everyone I know that is visiting Manhattan!!!
