Great food and excellent itinerary

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.

The tour was great. Our guide Michael was knowledgeable, funny, and entertaining. He was almost 30 minutes late, though. But again, I think he's a great guide. Recommended for tourists and New Yorkers alike.

An all-round unique experience.

My friend and I meet in New York every few years... We've done the museums, the shows, the typical "tourist attractions". I went to New York University for grad school and thoroughly enjoyed the Greenwich Village experience in the late 70s. Of course, I was young, working and going to school at the time and never took advantage of the many restaurants, theatre and unique shops and services.

This tour provided my friend and I an opportunity to have fun, explore the culinary treats that are abundant in this area. The price was more than reasonable, with all that was included. Our tour guide was excellent. He kept things moving, didn't linger too long, but didn't rush us either. He was very knowledgeable about the area because he had lived there for many years. His sense of humor was wonderful (don't we all need a good laugh these days?) He was warm, thoughtful and personable. He was attentive to the needs and interests of the participants and entertained us with his many "inside" stories about the characters and the legends that embodied the village. Last, but not least, the food. Oh, the food! Just the right amount, variety and of course the best quality. I ordered some olive oil from one of the shops we visited and will return to several other of the merchants when I return to NYC. Next time I hope to bring my husband on the tour, or perhaps another one of the "Food Tours".

Ramheed was a font of knowledge about the history of Chinatown as he enthusiastically led us through out of the way areas and educated us on all things Chinese including food, herbal medicine and culture.

Good Food...Great information
Sat, Oct 4, 08   1:00 PM marilynfujii Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Our tour guide was Michael who made the tour. He has spent many, many years in the Village, and he holds history that made the tour come alive. He was also very up-beat, enthusiastic, and fun. The locals seemed to know him and warmly greeted him as we did the tour. He took care of us so everyone was acknowledged and we knew a little about each other person on the tour. And, the food was terrific!!!!

He helped us feel very comfortable in the Village...so much so that the next morning we went back to have coffee.

The Sushi and Japanese Tapas Food Tasting Event

Our leader was enthusiastic and well-informed which made for an entertaining evening. The restaurant served perfect portions of tasty tapas and sushi. We feasted with our eyes, palettes and learned a lot. Several tapas were memorable and the sake was premium grade. Thanks!
