It's a great way to get familiarized with the neighborhood for those who just moved to the area.

My husband, three teenage daughters, and I had a great time. The food was delicious and the historical facts and trivia were interesting and fun. Lots of great suggestions on resturants we will definitely be visiting in the future.

We had a group of seven people from age 8 to age 78. Everyone enjoyed the food, the history and the fabulous tour guide (Michael).

Really liked it, but might throw a glass of wine or a beer in, along with maybe some fries or something from 86 bedford. My husband is a med size guy and he could have eaten quite a bit more w/o stuffing himself.

Our group, from MA, visits NY every year at this time and this is the first time we have taken one of these tours. We enjoyed every minute of the 3 hrs., both for the history and the food. The guide was excellent. She was knowledgeable, witty and kept the group moving at a good pace. On our next trip we will book another tour and hopefully get the same guide. We all had a great time and will recommend it to others.

The tour was great and our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. The tastings were delicious and abundant. Everything was better than I had imagined it would be. I would like to do this tour again, in the spring, with my husband. I would highly recommend this tour to locals as well as tourists.

Waste of $40

Really rather boring. 4 of our 12 wandered off 1/3 of the way into tour. Not much territory covered, More standing than walking. Nothing you wouldn't find just walking mainly down Bleecker St. Guide Susan needs to consider other career opportunities. Not "gourmet" food. Good for clueless types only.

Wonderful mix of foods and history of the area

Our tour group was a mixture of ages (mostly women) and the tour appealed to all. The foods sampled were varied and plentiful. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to taste a sampling from the West Village and Greenwich areas and to have the rich history and culture explained in the process. New York is so much more than just Midtown Manhattan and this tour provided an opportunity to explore the richness and depth of an area filled with history and charm. One of my favorites on our tour!

The only criticism that came from my group was that perhaps there could have been more opportunities to sit while listening to the tour guide - standing got a bit long for some. They all said that they would definitely recommend this tour!
