I've lived in the New York area my whole life and presently live on Long Island. When my wife suggested this tour, I figured, sure why not. I didn't really expect much, but the tour/food tasting was way better than I expected. The tour guide, Kurt Upton was sensational, he gave us all kinds of historical background of the area and the food places we visited. The tasting were exceptional and my wife and I are already planning which restaurants we want to go back to, and which food shops we want to re-visit. I recommend this tour to visitors to our city as well as long time residents.

Not only was there a good mix of food samples, it was the right combination of walking and learning about the neighborhood.

I went on my own on the Greenwich Village tour and I felt so comfortable and welcomed by our tour guide Marie and the others on the tour. Marie is a worth of knowledge and so passionate about the area her enthusiasm for the local businesses is amazing. I actually went back to Greenwich a number of times while I stayed in New York and the restaurants she recommended were amazing! What you experience and learn on this tour are things you couldn't possibly find on your own if you're not a local. It also is a great foundation to learn to experience the area further.

Great to experience local culture and food

Barri our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The food choices were a bit too heavily weighted on breads, pizza, and italian selections. But all in all the quality of the food was impressive and the historical facts presented were most impressive. Did the Central Village Soho tour two days before and found it to be much better in terms of variety of foods offered and variety of ethnic options offered (indian, cuban, italian etc) If you want to experience the "real" NYC you need to do one of these tours. You will learn about eateries that you would normally pass by. Eat where the locals eat and really feel a part of the city. Soak up the culture. We went back for dinner at a restaurant that was highlighted on the tour and it exceeded our expecations-some of the freshest food we have eaten. These tours are the real deal. You must try it!!!

Enjoy great food and history in Greenwich Village

I have gone on the tour twice--the first time I went with my daughters and enjoyed it so much that I encouraged my husband to go when we visited New Your again. My guides both times--Barrie (sp?) and Sephra were outstanding. I enjoyed both the food and historic part of it. I did a similar tour in Boston, but this was 1 hour longer and the amount of food we received was substantially more. All the food was delicious. I liked it that the food reflected the neighborhood. Also, we received some tips about restaurants that we returned to that although not in any of the books, were gems. Stopping at the wine bar midpoint provided a good rest. This tour we stopped at Palma's for a food tasting which we did not do the first time and it was fantastic. I liked going to Palma's because it was a restaurant and added something different in addition to the shops we stopped in. Thanks for a great experience.

We had a delightful and enthusiastic tour guide (Kurt) for our tour of Greenwich Village. The amount of food that was served was very generous and all the food establishments seemed pleased to be a part of the tour. I would highly recommend this tour and look forward to taking a tour of another neighborhood in the future.

this food tasting tour was excellent entertainment! We learned alot about the history of the meat packing district and the current business places in Chelsea Market as well as the surrounding area! These businesses were very accomodating and offered yummy food treats!

Fun, informative and great food.

The tour guide was efficient, well informed and very professional. She judged the group very well and paced the tour to suit their needs. We learned a lot about the history of New York as well as Greenwich Village. The food was always produced very quickly so there was little 'hanging around'. While it was great to try two different kinds of pizza it would have been good to have a little more variety - we really loved the risotto at the modern Italian restaurant. Overall a great experience.

Not worth it

I have been on previous food tours and this one pales in comparison. There was more talking about food and neighborhood restaurants than eating. We sat in empty clubs and restaurants without even a crumb of food. Most of the food that was served on the tour was crammed into the last hour. I would suggest you save your money and create your own food tour.

highlight of our trip to New York

What a fabulous day in Greenwich village. I can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon than eating your way through a funky neighbourhood and learning about the history of the area. Our tour guide Sephra definately knew her stuff, and presented the tour in a very humourous way. Very enjoyable. The food was great - Bleeker street pizza was amazing, (I think that was the name of the place) as was the cheese at Murray's cheese shop.

Thanks for a great afternoon. We will definately do a tour in another neighbourhood next time we are in New York City.

Be sure to book your tour ahead of time, as they do fill up.
