I found this tour on Trip Advisor. I did a little more research and then booked the tour. You never know what you're going to get with these tours so I kept my fingers crossed and headed out to meet the guide. Talk about blind luck! Bob, our guide, was awesome. Not only did we visit several bakeries and restaurants, but he gave an amazing history lesson along the way. He was very creative in his story telling and kept our interest the entire tour. I had read several complaints about the food being skimpy, but it wasn't by far and after all it's a tasting, not a dinner! I highly recommend this tour and wil be trying my luck again with one of the other locations on my next trip to NYC!

Food Tour

Tour was conducted too fast, the eating stops were rushed. I think the guide had to cover too much. Two pizzas, two deserts? Much of the food was average. The Asian food stop seemed out of place in a predominantly Italian food tour. The history could have included more on the wonderful folk musicians who got their start in the Village. Mindless emphasis on what building sold for how much. I do not think I could recommend this tour.

I highly recommend attending one of these tours. The Greenwich Village tour was humorous, factual and food filled. We had many delicious tastings to places that I would revisit. I also would take another food tour; it was that much fun. Our guide, Cindy, was the best.

A highlight of my weekend!

Absolutely loved the tour and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food and learning more about the neighborhood. My guide, Susan, was friendly and very informative. There was considerable noise that she had to talk over due to street construction, but even with that, the tour was enjoyable. I look forward to another tour on my next visit. More than enough to eat. Favorites: the pear chocolate tart from Once Upon a Tart, the sandwich taste from Focacceria, and the taste of Indian food from Masala Times. I appreciated the handout that lists dozens of restaurants in the Village.

A very peasant way to pass three hours

Our guide was very knowledgable about the Chelsea/ Meat Packing District.

There was a mix of humor and passion throughout the tour. Great to have the story of the Highline included. The tastings were delicious. We will definitely recommend this tour to friends heading to NYC.

A walking tour of Greenwich Village while it's 105 degrees outside. Tough, very tough. But, the food was fantastic. Would have been nice to include more wine tastings. Nice tidbits of info on Greenwich Village that you could probably have gotten by Googling. If you are looking for info/background on the different types of restaurants and other eateries in the village, take the tour.

Bob was very nice. Informative as well. It seemed as if we were on a tour of not only good food but of his friends food. That made it more personal.

Our tour guide, Sapphra, was charming, enthusiastic, and extremely knowledgeable of the area and the foods associated with the area. My wife and I learned a lot, and even went back to the village today to sample some more of what was to be enjoyed in Greenwich Village. Very nice.

Excellent cultural tour with delicious tastings

When I came across the Central Village/SoHo Food & Culture Tour online, it immediately drew my attention. I had seen many walking tours before but never saw one that incorporated food tastings. I really enjoyed the experience of walking around an area and seeing it with other eyes once the guide tells you the historical and cultural aspects about the location. Otherwise you might stroll around by yourself and think "oh, this is a nice area" but not really get to know all the captivating details and a real understanding of how the area came into being what it is now.

The food that was served was excellent and I loved that they could accommodate my vegetarian eating habits as well. It was very nice to get advice on where you can get some truly good food because as a tourist you often go to places and look around to see where you might want to eat and as frequently can get disappointed or drawn into "tourist traps" where you pay a lot of money for mediocre food. After this tour, however, I had over 20 good places to choose from which is great!

Our guide, Susan, who is originally from New York, seemed very knowledgeable and likeable and made this a very pleasant 3 hours. Overall I had a fantastic time with wonderful food and recommendations on where to go for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.

Took the Greenwich Tour In September '09 with friends and this time took my family. Two teenage girls and my husband loved it. Said the tour was the highlight of our 2-day stay in NY. The Meatpacking District/Chelsea Market tour is also fantastic.
