Really enjoyed the size of the group,not too large. Marie our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable and entertaining. The food was wonderful as was the history behind each restaurant/shop. Great way to spend some time in the village. Will do another tour next time we visit New York.

This was the 3rd Foods of NY tour that I've done. The leader was well versed in knowledge about the West Village and NYC in general. The tour was really fun and there was SO MUCH FOOD! I'd highly recommend this activity.

Bert was great, the tastings fell flat

We went on one of the only rainy days of our entire stay in NY, Bert, our guide was great, full of interesting facts, with a great sense of humour! We did unfortunately find that the food element of the tour was underwhelming, very small serves, some actually not that tasty! The walk around a beautiful area of NY was worth it though.

Food tour good but canned
Tue, Oct 14, 14   11:00 AM lizcutler Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
While our tour guide knew a lot about the topics and was lively, I felt as if we were on an assembly line. His presentation, down to the jokes, was completely canned, almost memorized. Maybe that's inevitable. He worked very hard to get to know the names of the people on the tour, which was good, but the way he used those was hokey. I did like the architectural information about the neighborhood. The food, while delicious in quality and generous in quantity, was pretty much some form of cheese and grain in every place. I would have liked to understand more deeply the food history of the area. We enjoyed ourselves, but I wouldn't go back.

This is the Third time I have done the Greenwich Village Food tour. It did not disappoint! My friends and I did the tour on a Sunday afternoon. Three of us had dietary needs (vegetarian and dairy allergies). The guide was very thoughtful in making sure they they had substitutes for any dishes they were unable to have. Our guide was very enthusiastic and ensured everyone had a great time. Thanks again for a great day!!
