This was so much fun

Cindy took us on a culinary adventure through Greenwich Village. It was one of the best walking tours I've done anywhere. She was delightful - fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable.

Far beyond what was expected

This tour was outstanding! Our guide was not only knowledgable but engaging and entertaining as well. He was only one of the components that made this such a fun tour. The food was outstanding, the stores were unique, the cultural history of the Village was colorful and the actual walk was quite enjoyable. What a great way to spend an afternoon!

Great guide, great food, sore feet!
Sat, Jun 21, 08   12:30 PM kstrandburg Unspecified Unspecified Combination Group of Friends
The tour was terrific, both for relatively new residents of the area and for our out-of-town guests. The guide was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. The food tastings were excellent and filling. We went back for dinner at one of the places a couple of nights later. Be warned, though, the tour is long and there is very little opportunity to sit down. So be prepared and take the chances to sit when you get them!

Great Time!

This tour was excellent! Our group leader, Ed, was friendly and knew about the area in detail. We learned a lot about the West Village and enjoyed great food as well. The food tastings were spaced so that we were full but not too full. We can't wait to go back on our own to try several of the restaurants. We also plan to take a different tasting tour in the near future. It was a highlight of our trip.

More history than food
Sat, Jun 14, 08   12:30 PM cgparmelee Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Overall I enjoyed the tour, it was very informative, providing a historical overview of the area and highlighting current hotspots. But since the tour was specifically a "Food Tour" I expected a little more emphasis on the food culture and tastings. I would have appreciated more tasting stops as there was certainly enough time for them.

Okay but not great
Fri, Jun 13, 08   12:00 PM preciousjeni Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
I found that we heard more about the history of the area than the history of the food. The food tastings were excellent, but there weren't many of them. I can't believe the sparse food offerings for the cost of the tour (3 hours). I was also disappointed that we spent almost an hour walking around a park. If that entire section had been cut out, the tour would have been far better.

Just the perfect mix!

My compliments. Another proof that it comes all down to the tour guide. In our case Bob was just the perfect tour guide providing the perfect mix, of history facts, funny stories and good tastings - all with the right attention to detail.

Thanks, Bob!

Great insight of Greenwich Village.

We were a group of 4 and are glad we took the tour. Now when we return to the area, we wil have a general idea of where to go as many of the business signs do not jump right out at you.

We loved the taste testing. The food was great!

great time

i really enjoyed the food tour. the only suggestion i would liek to pose is to not do two pizza restaurants on the tour. i understand these places probably are the simplest to do a sampling at but i think it would have been nicer to have a sample at a different type of restaurant. i am really excited to go back and try all the restaurants that were featured on the tour.

Who doesn't like to eat?

Loved the tour. Bought at the stores after the tour with the discount they provided tour members so our NY hosts could also enjoy the wonderful food. Now we are continuing to order via the internet with our discount so we can share the great food with our California neighbors. Who doesn't like to eat? We are already planning to take some of the other tours on future trips to NY. Keep up the good work.

Great time...recommend it for anyone!

The Chelsea Market/Meatpacking District tour was a great time. I live in NYC and took family to this. I'd recommend it to out-of-towners and New Yorkers alike. Our guide, Cyndi, was extremely enthusiastic and knowledgable.

Nice way to spend an afternoon
Sat, Apr 19, 08   12:30 PM mlk1958 Unspecified 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable; food samples were delish, especially the first one from the Indian bakery and the last one from the Greek yogurt joint. And the gnocchi at the Italian joint, where we were seated and the chef actually came out and gave us the recipe for the delicious pasta! That, more than anything, really made the tour special. We also enjoyed the bits of music/culture history, such as the stop at Bob Dylan's former home. Two thumbs up from these Southern Californians!

Only nitpick: The peanut butter sandwiches, although delicious, weren't cut apart adequately and that sampling was a little difficult logistically since there was no place to sit down.
