Great tour

The tour was great. Our guide Michael was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. He was almost 30 minutes late, though. But again, I think he's a great guide. Recommended for tourists and New Yorkers alike.

An all-round unique experience.

My friend and I meet in New York every few years... We've done the museums, the shows, the typical "tourist attractions". I went to New York University for grad school and thoroughly enjoyed the Greenwich Village experience in the late 70s. Of course, I was young, working and going to school at the time and never took advantage of the many restaurants, theatre and unique shops and services.

This tour provided my friend and I an opportunity to have fun, explore the culinary treats that are abundant in this area. The price was more than reasonable, with all that was included. Our tour guide was excellent. He kept things moving, didn't linger too long, but didn't rush us either. He was very knowledgeable about the area because he had lived there for many years. His sense of humor was wonderful (don't we all need a good laugh these days?) He was warm, thoughtful and personable. He was attentive to the needs and interests of the participants and entertained us with his many "inside" stories about the characters and the legends that embodied the village. Last, but not least, the food. Oh, the food! Just the right amount, variety and of course the best quality. I ordered some olive oil from one of the shops we visited and will return to several other of the merchants when I return to NYC. Next time I hope to bring my husband on the tour, or perhaps another one of the "Food Tours".

Our tour guide was very informative and enthusiastic. She introduced us to restaurants we would not normally try. She new a lot about the history of the restaurants and the buildings in the area. It was very enjoyable.

I loved our tour guide. She was very informative, intelligent, kind, and enthusiastic. I loved the information on the village and the restaurants recommended. And I especially loved the food tasting. The historical information about some of the buildings were really interesting, but I would have liked a little less of that and more food. Thanks so much. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Our guide, Heather, was quite inspirational discussing all the fine restaurants in the Village. We had great food to taste but would have liked to taste more food from the restaurants visited.

Overall, I would highly recommend the visit.

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.
