It was fantastic !! Our tour guide was the best - local, informed, funny and we felt really lucky to have her ... We had a diverse tour group and she interacted with all of us. The restaurants and stops along the way were varied, the food was great and the area history " lessons"made for a fabulous experience. I would recommend this to anyone coming to NYC. A great representation of a wonderful area and culture .

Love - Love - Love this tour! Raheem our guide was simply Excellent! Not only were the restaurants we visited superb, but his knowledge of the area was wonderful. I've already recommended to several friends that they simply can't visit NYC without doing this tour (and we'll be trying some of the other ones next year when we visit again). I told my niece we had booked this as she was coming to NYC 2 weeks prior to us, so she actually tried it first and raved to us about it. We are SO glad we booked it. Our friends on the tour with us were Italian and one of the restaurants had the best tomato sauce they'd ever tasted (even better than Momma's!!). See you next year!

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour, family of 4 with daughters 21 and 16, all of us being amateur foodies. Great way to see a new neighborhood, learn about its history, and get to sample all kinds of great tastings along the way. Our guide Sephra added much humour and character to our outing!

Our tour guide was informative and fun. We were amazed at how much we learned and ate in such a small section of the neighborhood. We both eat a lot and love food so were happy with the quantity. It was also a nice touch to receive professionally printed pamphlets about the area. The coupons in the pamphlets encouraged us to contribute to the neighborhood economy :) Our friend told us about the tour and she was right! We tell everyone we know to plan on the tour if they are in the area.

This was my second time taking this tour and I loved it just as much the second time as I did the first. Our guide Bert was the best - always helpful, full of information and even gave us recipes, and was funny too - Bert you are the best!! There was a wonderful variation of foods we tasted and places we went to. We came hungry and left stuffed! The shops and restaurants were within a small area so there wasn't that much walking to be done. The food we had was so delicious you always wanted more. I have been on two other of their tours, Little Italy and Chelsea Market which were also great but this one is my favorite. Walking through the streets of Greenwich Village was so nice seeing and learning about the history of the homes and the area. It's such an adorable little neighborhood to actually walk around and see how lovely it is. The residents do local shopping and the stores make purchases from each other - nice to keep it all in the neighborhood. We ate apps, main dishes and of course desserts. After the tour we went back to some of the shops and purchased some items. The store's employees were so friendly and gave us some pointers of various products and cooking. A great day in NYC and a wonderful tour. I highly recommend it!

Excellent food and enough history and cultural context to give an introduction to the Village. Highly recommended.
