Our guide Diana was informative and well versed in her subject. The food was varied and very good. The weather left a lot to be desired as it was extremely cold and icy. Diana did everything in her power to keep us warm and entertained. Will do this tour again on a nice spring day. this was one of my daughter's Christmas presents and she enjoyed it tremendously. Thank you.

While it was a really cold day, it was a tremendous tour that allowed us to taste sample sizes of many different specialty foods, and showed several historical areas. Guide was very knowledgeable, although she always seemed to be walking about 10 paces in front of everyone else which made her seem less than friendly. The food samples we had were quite good but pretty small - I could have eaten more. Rather than more of the samples we had, it would have been nice to try additional samples from other places. I'd also like to actually sit down somewhere to eat a small meal. There was sitting time at some places, but barely enough to consume the small sample provided at the venue. I would have been happy to pay more and extend the time in order to accomplish this.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys trying different kinds of food, and can deal with whatever weather conditions exist at the time.

This was my 2nd Foods of NY tour and I enjoyed both of them very much. The Greenwich Village tastings, restaurants and shops make me wish I could go back every day.

My husband and I enjoyed learning about the neighborhood, as well as, the restaurants and food shops. We stayed in the area after the tour and did some shopping. We also went back another day to Le Gigot( before the theater,delicious!) and Pesce Pasta for meals. Our only regret is that we did not have enough time during our stay to try more. We will definately try more restaurants next trip!

Our guide, Bob, knew the district inside out and seemed to enjoy sharing his knowledge of and enthusiasm about the area with us. The food samples were generous and delicious. Small group size made conversation and questions possible. Highly recommended.

Foods of New York Greenwich Village Walking Tour

We had a FANTASTIC time on this tour. Both my boyfriend and I both live in New York and learned so much about Greenwich Village and now have an extensive list of new restaurants we want to try. It was raining on the day of our tour, but it did not even effect our enjoyment as the tour provided us with ponchos and we had an umbrella.

Far more than just a food tour

I found the Central Village/Soho Tour informative and very enjoyable. While tasting the samples of food at numerous stops was pleasurable, I enjoyed even more learning the background of the restaurants and their role in the community. Our guide (Ramin--not sure of spelling) did an excellent job of escorting a group of about 15 through the area while minimizing the activity disruption of local residents. The handout guide to the area was also helpful for future restaurant suggestions. I would hightly recommend the tour.

That was a very well run trip with lots of information from a very knowledgeable guide. (Michael??)The food stops and samplings were more than enough to be considered a substantial lunch. I would highly recommend this trip to family and friends who are in the area.

Thanks.

Our female tour guide was enthusiastic and took great care of us, as we sampled a good-sized portion of samplings to taste during our tour. It was nice to also have places to sit down during our tastings; the tour is well-organized. It was great to learn some of history behind the founding of Chelsea Market and the Nabisco Company that once inhabited it and now the vendors who do today.

Although I really enjoyed walking around the market, it would have also been nice to have gone outside of the building and spend maybe an hour or so exploring places in the local neighborhood (like the Red Cat restaurant, if it wasn't too far.) Overall the tour is a pleasant experience. Plus, the final stop on the tour is a short walk go back to the market to eat or shop at or just walk around for second time.
