Pleasant Surprise

Our guide was Michael and he was very interesting and very well informed. We learned facts about the age of the Village and how it started. The food tasting were good and of a varied nature. It definetly made us want to spend more time discovering Greenwich Village. We will be back when we have more time.

Our guide, Kurt, led us on an educational, sensory-delighting, entertaining insider's view of the Chelsea Market and surrounding area.

We highly recommend the tour!

Don't expect to feel stuffed after the tour but it is definitely enough to get you through the day. All the samples and suggestions were amazing. It had an excellent balance of information on the history of Greenwich Village as well.

Our group of four had a very enjoyable time on the food tour. We enjoyed all of the food selections and learning about the history and culture of Greenwich Village. We highly recommend this tour. We plan on returning and participating in one of the other tours offered.

We took the tour on one of the coldest days of the year (something like minus 8 - without allowing for the wind-chill factor), yet still had a great time.

The food-tasting element is more low-key than expected (a couple of bits of pizza, a rice ball, an Italian pastry and some cheese) but the informative, enthusiastic and entertaining style of our guide (Michael) - covering architecture, history and local anecdote as well as food - made it a tour to remember.

We were a group of four from London and while we sometimes shivered in the biting New York temperatures (making London seem almost balmy by comparison), this was a highlight of our trip.

Well worth sampling - but try to pick a warm day!

Maria, our guide, did a good job.

We were introduced to some places we would never have found on our own. On one occasion, one of our party remarked that ".. knowing about that place was worth the price of the tour alone..." Next time in NY we will definitely be back to Greenwich Village!! Thanks.

Interesting and Educational Tour

The tour was very entertaining, with Kurt as our guide !! We not only tasted many different foods, but learning about some hidden gems of the Village was fancinasting!! Also learning about the Landmark area, that Jackie O had a hand in saving NYC history- and the stories about the Village- all of this was as deliocus as the food on the tour.

We loved it !

This tour was absolutely fabulous! My family and I were captivated the entire time by both the history of the area as presented by our guide and the food as prepared by the vendors. Being from New York it is so interesting to learn the stories of the neighborhoods of the city that everyone has heard of, but few really know. As an added note, our guide Kurt was hilarious and entertaining every step of the way...he is one of the funniest people on the planet.

Wonderful experience

Kurt was our tour guide and he was enthusiastic and interesting. We took this tour to familiarize ourselves with the West Village area but we enjoyed it more than we could ever have guessed. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the comments about the architecture and history. We enjoyed it so much that we related our experience to our dinner companions and they all want to take the tour now. The most important thing to me is that, now, when I return to the W. Village, I will feel like I know where I am going and what I am doing. Thanks for a great tour!

liked so much the first time, went again

I first went on this tour a couple years ago with a friend from Manhatten. I enjoyed it so much that I recently went again with a friend unfamiliar with Greenwich Village. I enjoyed it all over. My only slight criticism is that perhaps limiting the group to 10 would be more comfortable. (We were 15).

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The walk was just enough to help us appreciate the food and not too strenuous. Liked the historical references and architecture lessons. The food was generous and a good variety of snacks, desserts, and heartier fare like pizza. Amy was a great tour guide.

Food for the mind and body!

We now know the ChelseaMarket area pretty darn well..Saw both SaraBeth and the "High Line" on TV the next day!! Our guide conveyed her love for this area, and as true Foodies, we loved seeing the source for the restaurant treats, such as black trumpet mushrooms. The time flew by, and I recommend this to all!

Great Food, Great Tour!

Cindy knew a whole lot about the Village (both current and historically) and seemed to be well known and well liked by those in the community. Lots of sightseeing and discussion between the food tastings. Overall, we tried 2 different (half-slice sized) types of pizza, a wonderful rice ball from the Italian market, a delicious combined cheese, meat and bread sampler from Murray's, Amy's and the Italian market, the best cannoli we ever had at Rocco's and an "opera cake" at a Northern Italian bakery next to Rocco's. Would love to have a few more samples added to the tour, since it is truly a food tasting tour first and lasted over 3 hours, but we had a great time overall and hope to come back and do another tour (Chelsea/MePa) in the future
