A Great Food Tour Experience

Our guide, Kurt, met us right on time at the Chelsea Market--he made a real effort to remember and use all of our first names--and was amazingly successful. He really knew the area and told us many interesting things about it. He was very knowledgeable about all the establishments we visited (and there were quite a few), and made sure we all were enjoying ourselves, learning about the Market and meat packing district, and along the way eating lots of delicious food. When we met, it was raining and he said how lucky we were to have chosen this tour as the Market part was all inside--but he promised that by the time we came to the meat packing part, during which we walked outside, the sun would be shining and it would be a beautiful day--and he was right! We also visited several restaurants in the area which was great because we plan to visit Chelsea when next we're in NYC and now we know some good places to eat. Altogether a delightful day. We can't recommend the tour highly enough.

Cindy did a great job. Soliciting group for gratuitie however is tacky and should not be encouraged.

You'll feel like a local

I recently did the Greenwich/SoHo tour led by Susan. She was terrific! A native New Yorker, she is passionate about her city and its many fabulous foodie finds. She did a great job describing in fascinating detail the history and present state of the Village food scene. The restaurants and cafes on the itinerary were all superb - it was nearly overwhelming. The food was delicious and each place was thoughtfully chosen for its historical and cultural significance to the neighborhood.

Susan was also great at ensuring that everyone's needs were met throughout the tour and that we were enjoying ourselves. Overall, she was a great group facilitator and tour guide.

At the conclusion of the tour I felt like I had gained such an inside perspective into the Village far beyond just the food scene. It was hard to believe that I saw and learned so much in only three hours. I felt like a local by the end of it. This was an amazing way to become closely familiar with one of NYC's incredible neighborhoods. I will definitely check out a different tour on my next trip. Keep up the super work!

Marie was GREAT!!! - She obviously enjoys her role as 'Guide' and is very good at it.

I was pleasantly surprised that the food portions ere as large as they were. I will send everyone I know that is visiting Manhattan!!!

Even New Yorkers Have New Secrets to Discover

We enjoyed it immensely. Gave us some great ideas for restaurants and specialty food shops to re-visit in the future, plus we learned a lot about the history and culture of Greenwich Village and SoHo. Even though we lived in NYC for eleven years, there's always a lot more to discover. Our guide, Diana, did a terrific job. We intend to take all the other tours your company offers as soon as possible.

I had the most wonderful experience on the food tour. Not only did I taste so many different types of food that I would have never thought of, I learned so much about Central Village/SoHo area. The foods were filling and amazing!! Definitely recommend anyone and everyone to go. We're going to do the rest of the neighborhoods.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour.

I learned a bit about Greenwich Village and I enjoyed the food tastings. It is different from other tours in that you get to taste food as you go along , so it isn't as "stuffy" as some tours. I recommend it highly.

I learned so much more than I would have on my own. The tour guide was fabulous, and the food we sampled was really the best of the best.

I've taken other food tours and loved them. I wasn't as impressed with this one. There was less food tasting on this tour and a lot more history and walking to places that were not food orientated. I did leave with a good understanding of the area.

Great tour leader. Very knowledgeable and full of energy. Gave great tips on several subjects. Restaurants and shops were very interesting and the workers were extremely kind and helpful. Already recommended tour to friends who live in New Jersey and other friends who visit New York quite often. We will try other tours on our next visit.
