Great tour! We flew all the way from Hawaii not knowing much about the history of New York other than the tragic events of 9/11. We walked away with so much knowledge about the history of the village. Highly recommended!!!

The food tour in Greenwich was awesome. We really enjoyed the variety of food, the history and our enthusiastic tour guide . We learned a lot about the different ingredients and the personalities of the neighbourhood.I have to give a high recommendation to Sephra, she was the highlight !! You are lucky to have her working for you. I have already recommended this tour to many of my friends.

The history of Greenwich as interesting as food

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

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.

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

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

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.
