This tour will help you sample the fine food and fun character of a New York City village. The guides are in no hurry to chase you away, but rather would love to have you stay and visit. What a charming experience for all ages. Do be sure to wear comfortable shoes and prepare for the weather.

Kirk was a great guide! You are lucky to have him. I wish I had taken notes, he shared much more that I could remember. The pace was easy, which was good for me since I'm not in great shape. Most of the food samples were very good. But I did wish we had had something a little more adventuresome at Murry's! (Also, little critism - Kirk compareed the Piave to Romano when it is really more closely related to a not so aged parm reggiano). I returned to O&O where I spent too much money because they offered "free" shipping, But the prices were so high I know they didn't loose much GP off me! And I returned to Cornielia Cafe for coffee and to rest and read before moving on to walk up to the Celsea Market. I used the coupon at Jaques Torres for a very very small sample of Hot Chocolate, But I bought a full size one and a box of chocolate. And returned Cornielia St Cafe to hang out at the bar. (Where I shared a drink with the owner!) And went to thier 8:30 show. All in all I had a great day which was certainly jump started by your tour. I would resommend this tour to anyone. Thank-you.

I live in New York and frequently have visitors from out of town. I get really bored taking people to the same old touristy spots. The food tour was a great way to spend the day. My friends really loved it and we all enjoyed learning about some of the special local restaurants. The historical aspect of the tour was great too. I totally recommend the Greenwich Village tour... sign up for Curt's group. He's hilarious and has an uncanny ability to remember everyone's name.

Learning history can be fun

We had a wonderful tour led by Barri. She wove a lovely story as we moved from pizza place... to food shop... to restaurant. Our appreciate of Greenwich Village and it's food increased as the tour continued. A fun way to learn about the village and NY food history, while enjoying tasty treats along the way

Greenwich Village in depth and in gest!

This was a spectacular tour well worth tramping in the snow and slush. We were two thirty somethings and two sixty somethings and the tour director and shops kept us entertained and intrigued. Michael Cart is a FIND! Because of this tour, all of us will return to visit again Greenwich Village. The only taste missing was a sip of wine.

Great tour

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I was especially pleased that the tour guide started exactly on time, latecomers had to find us we didn't have to wait on them.

The only thing i would change is the tipping policy. Can't you pay your folks what you need to and charge it in the ticket price or make it clear that tips are expected and not included in the ticket price?

I thoroughly enjoyed every nook, cranny and taste of Greenwich Village. Our guide was knowledgeable and very much at home in Greenwich Village. I highly recommend the tour. Dress according to the weather and prepare to meander and taste your way through the Village. During the tour, make some notes and plan to go back to some of your favourite places for a closer look or to shop. Enjoy!!
