Excellent! The food and our guide were awesome!

The tour was well-worth the $40.00 spent for the ticket. Even though it did rain the entire time we were touring, we were able to get in and out of the eating establishments in a timely manner. We were served foods such as cheese, bread, pizza, sausage, olive oil, and delicious bakery items. We had enough food to take the place of a light lunch. We met people from all over the United States and Canada. The group was very compatible and the guide, who was very friendly and helpful, knew more about the area since she lived in Greenwich Village. After the tour was over, we stayed in The Village for another two hours to visit some of the shops that we didn't have time to see on the tour. Would we do this again? Most definitely! We will probably come back next year when we make our annual trip to New York.

Interesting and fun afternoon - Food ok

This is a fun way to spend an afternoon very interesting facts and history are imparted and our guide had lived in the neighborhood for years. I found him very genuine as people on the street passed by they all knew our guide by name. The food is okay don't expect anything gourmet (pizzas/breads/cheeses). I live in New York and know the neighborhood so I know most of the stores we stopped by but I still managed to discover one new store that I will return to. It was a lovely afternoon.

The samples were very good. The tour was a little long since a third of the establishments do not participate in taste testing. I was impressed with the guide's knowledge of the history, architecture, and restaurants of this tour.

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!!!!!

Highly recommended tour

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!
Fri, Oct 12, 07   12:30 PM mjselinger Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
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!

New Discovery...Chelsea Market

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.
