This was a fun tour! I liked everything that i sampled, very unique foods!!! Tour guide, Diane, was very informative and knew what she was talking about, but she was very much a pushy new-yorker, sometimes very anoying and other times beneficial on the streets of NY!!! Very fun, and adventerous!!!!!

I was very impressed with not only the food we sampled but also the historical detail provided by our enthusiastic guide, Michael. Having visited Greenwich Village ten years ago I got so much more out of this second visit as a result of the Food tour.

Not only did we get to sample some great international food we had an informative and humorous guide who really gave us a colourful background and insight into the community. We enjoyed it so much we returned the following evening to sample the cusine at one of the restaurants mentioned on the tour.

A very enjoyable three hours with a great wine tasting to follow, I would thoroughly recommed it to anyone.

Phenomenal Tour!

I took this tour on October 13th with my visiting family from New Hampshire, my daughter and her boyfriend, and good friends from Queens. This tour was more than we had hoped for. We all had a terrific time. Our tour guide, Kurt was the best. His energy, knowledge, and personality was astounding. The food samples were excellent. I enjoyed walking through the meat packing district, escpecially since I've never visited that part of NYC. It was fun learning about the history of the area and seeing how the neighborhood is developing. I highly recommend this tour!

Surpassed My Expectations!

I made the reservations because my mother loves the Food Network. It did not disappoint, in fact it surpassed my expectations and we were thrilled with our guide Samson. My mother, Carol, is "mobility-challenged" and uses a scooter. Samson made sure she was not lost in the back and made every effort to accomodate her. Samson was knowledgeable, humorous and entertaining. For anyone who likes to combine food AND history, this tour should not be missed.

We went on the Original Greenwich Village Food Tour led by Cindy last week. She was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable about the area and foods/restaurants & shops, and at the same time entertaining. The 3 hours passed quickly with her. The variety and quality of the foods was good and there was more than enough to make up a lunch. It was nice that she gave us a break between samplings - otherwise I would have been stuffed!

Never knew about the Chelsea we do!! What a fabulous place for the tour and what a building! Sampson was wonderful and we learned lots of interesting info about the building. Lots of food...more than I thought we would have. Highly recommend to visitors or locals who have not been in the meatpacking district.

We enjoyed the food tour and learning all the history of the Market and the surrounding area. Having places to sit were really appreciated, since we are older, but there wasn't ever enough seating for the entire group. We felt there should have been more diverse offerings at some of the places we toured. Our tour guide was excellent!

I had a blast! I visit NY each year and this was the first time that I learned so much about the Village and SOHO! The history was so interesting and the food was AMAZING! I would recommend this tour to all of my friends, I would definitely go on another tour.

Michael was a great guide. My husband was very glad Michael included so much of the history of the west village.

I would add only one thing. Wine with the end of the tour cheese tasting.

We had a great time.

Excellent food and commentary

We loved our tour of Greenwich Village. The guide was very informative and obviously loved his city. He gave interesting detail and history of the area and on top of it all fed us! The food was spectacular, we even returned the following evening for dinner in one of the recommended restaurants and saw someone else from the same tour there! We felt like we were off the beaten track and were not surrounded by tourists as we felt in upper Manhatten. Excellent, I would highly recommend it to future visitors to NYC.

Underwhelmed--But Go See For Yourself
Sat, Sep 15, 07   12:00 PM marlene44 Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
We expected to walk more and explore both the Village and SoHo. Our village tour focused mostly on MacDougal street and immediate environs and the SoHo part I think was when we crossed Houston street and walked couple short streets like Sullivan. We wanted to see more of the area and actually walk--there were so many streets to explore! After the tour we were able to walk on our own so the tour did help with our sense of direction. The food was OK at best save for a nice little morsel of smoked food. One Italian store in particular was spoken highly of and we went inside but we didn't get any food. People wanted to stop and buy something but we had to move on. I appreciated the tidbits of information we were offered about the area. I would advise to stay close to the leader so that you can hear everything, as sometimes the cars and trucks were louder than the voice. It was an interesting outing, and it seemed that most people loved it. However, don't be surprised if you want to stop and have lunch after the outing is over.

I never dreamed that a tour would include so much fine food tasting! The food was excellent, the tour educational and the tour guide had so much information and was so entertaining I wished the tour could be longer! It was so much more than I expected!
