The history of Greenwich as interesting as food
Fri, Sep 25  12:00 PM Jenempey Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Must like Italian !!! And we do so it was great ! learned about the historyof the area, the immigration patterns of New York, landmarks and about the restauranteurs. Lots of variety lots of learning . Very high quality food samples. Lots of standing, would be great to have few more sitting opportunities within the shops and restaurants as the standing and walking does wear on your back by the end

Excellent excursion

Our guide was Bert and he made the excursion worth it in every way. Extremely personable and you could tell he had great relationships with the shops. His knowledge of both the food and the neighborhood was above and beyond. The pace was great and we got a lot done in 3 hours without ever feeling rushed. Can't wait to go back to several of the restaurants next time we visit.

This is my second Foods of New York Tour and it was equally amazing as the first! Great balance of food, history and waking around Greenwich Village. Marie (our tour guide) was fantastic!!!!!

we had a blast on our food tour. Curt was so awesome and made us all feel special. He was interesting, knowledgable, and quite a character. The food we tasted was great and I would have loved to continue on to a part 2.

although we thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it was a bit too long. The weather was hot and eating while walking not very easy

Greenwich Village, Bert and food, perfect 3 hours
Mon, Sep 7  11:00 AM einardavid91 Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Bert was a perfect guide, he knows food and the city. He gave us the right amount of walking and sitting, talking and eating. Can't wait to go back and try full meals at Home, Rafele, and Palma. And spend more time in that area of town, of course stopping by for Cheese at Murray's, gelatto at Dolce's and the world's best cannolis at Rocco's. We had a wonderful time! September 2015

Walking Greenwich food tour

Bert was our tour guide and was excellent with the right amount of professionalism and sarcasm. We all in the group enjoyed him. I took this tour before 14 years ago and loved it as much this time as before.

Fun, Filling and Full of Fun Facts

My Friend and I went on the tour this past Sunday, being native New Yorkers and familiar with Greenwich Village, we just thought it would be fun experiencing the food. Mason our tour guide made it so much more, we were wowed by the facts he told us about the history of each eatery and the history of the streets and buildings. Mason was awesome! It was a really great experience and I keep telling everyone to do it, even if you live in the Village, you will be WOWED!
