I always enjoy taking these tours...best way to get to see the neighborhoods and learn the history...in fact you all may be seeing some locals soon...told them all about you all. See you all on my next trip. Aloha

We loved our tour guide and found that the food served on the tour were items we would not have known to order in a restaurant. It was a neat experience. We felt in the know being from out of town that we were the ONLY non New Yorkers on the trip.

Please do not use my name etc if you use my review.

Great food and information presented

Lots of information and different foods were presented in a fun and entertaining way. This is the second time that we took the Greenwich Village tour and enjoyed it as much the second time as we did the first. Our guide painted a picture of the area as it began as well as modern day values of the area. I would highly recommend the tour.

I just spent 5 days in the city and this tour was my favorite! I am a foodie at heart and i loved visiting the local eateries and trying something different from each one. Bert was our guide and he was very personable and very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely do this tour or another area food tour again.

The Best Thing We Did on Vacation

We saw the food tour in the NYC Guidebook and decided to give it a try. It was the best thing we did during our time in NYC. Kurt, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about Greenwhich Village, as well as other items in New York. He directed us to some great places to shop, dine, and hear jazz. The tour itself was a great way to see the Village; it was a nice break from the rat race of the city.

Fantastic guide and a fantastic afternoon

I enthusiastically recommend this tour. I was suprised by the enormous amount of food we got--I would have liked a bit more walking to work it off, but it was really great. Our guide (Sefra) was fantastic. She is obviously very knowledgeable about the neighborhood, and more than that, she was just plain fun to spend the afternoon with. Don't hesitate to book this tour!

A special thanks to Curt for his knowledge, enthusiasm and humour. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the tour. Later, we went for dinner at one of the recommended restaurants and enjoyed a memorable meal and a wonderful evening.

Many thanks from Canada.

We had an absolutely fabulous time on our tour of Greenwich Village. Our guide, Carrie Ann, was the best you could possibly want. She was informative, funny, helpful, organized, easy to be with and follow. All the tastings were delicious and satisfying. We ate at Rocco's Bakery after the tour, continuing the great time we had. When we signed up, we thought, "What could we be doing for 3 hrs.?" It went so fast, and we were sad when it was over. We especially congratulate Carrie Ann as it was a very cold day, and she moved us along at a good pace and gave us opportunities to "warm up". We will go again when we return to New York. It was the best. And, we will always ask for Carrie Ann as our guide. She was the best, too.

The tour was fun, the guide was excellent , very knowledgable , attentive and funny i.e. good sense of humor.

My only recommendation is that we be given more ice water over the 3 hours, it was extremely hot out and one of the food places was really hot. Some of us are not used to the intense East coast summers.
