Some highlights/some disappointments
Sun, Jul 19, 09   11:00 AM wellness Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I enjoyed the tour but found that the guide focused too much on the restaurants/shops and how much they cost etc. - it almost seemed that they were more concerned with future business for the participating companies than the current tour.

I would have skipped a few of the stops (e.g. 2nd pizza) - focus on a few with an opportunity to sit down and enjoy the experience rather than rush through them all. I really appreciated the opportunity to hear about the history, iconic buildings and characteristics of the neighbourhood.

Our tour guide, Kurt from Canada, was great! Kurt was informative and very entertaining. I went with a group of friends from "northwest" New Jersey. We all had a very good time. The food was delicious and I certainly did not need lunch afterwards. I would highly recommend this tours to friends and family. Actually, I would go back again to do this tour or another. If possible, I would request to be on a tour with Kurt as the tour guide.

This was a great tour. Even my NJ aunts didn't know that much about Greenwich Village. Good variety of foods and plenty to eat. Would not recommend for children under 13 or 14, though. My child was bored.

One of THE BEST!!

There were 4 of us on the tour, we are all well traveled......and we all agreed that this was one of the BEST excursions we had ever taken. We had plenty of opportunity to sit and rest, so don't be concerned about getting too tired. There was a 90 year old on the tour and she did just fine. Don't miss it!! Our only regret.....we didn't go the first day of our trip so we could go back and dine at some of the restaurants.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three hour tour in Greenwich Village. Our Guide Heather was a fountain of knowledge with all sorts of information and data of not only the varied food shops and restaurants but also of the neighbourhood. The food was plentifull and very good quality. The best trip we have been on this holiday. Would strongly recommend it.

A must do trip!

Big highlight of trip to NYC
Tue, Nov 1, 11   11:30 AM Weekuleso Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is a fan.tas.tic tour to do in NYC!

My sister, my cousin and myself were really looking forward to this on tues 1st nov, but, never having done a food tour before, weren't sure what to expect...well... It was *such* a highlight for us with the delicious Sefra leading the culinary way, that we had to play it down to the rest of our group later so as not to make them jealous! Sefra was both informative and hilarious to us wee Irish girls, and the food was exquisite... Especially the cookies at "milk and cookies", and I had to go back to the hotel to get my "fat" trousers!! Do this tour!!

This is a great tour. Our guide was super funny and very knowledgeable. The food was very good and the businesses we visited where very friendly. I would take this tour again with friends when I return. Well worth the money.
