Ah!! The Village
Tue, Aug 14, 07   11:30 AM pfparish Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Four female family members took this tour on a hot August day. It was very informative and much food (too much pizza) was consumed. Our guide (Barri) was NOT very energetic or fun, but it was a hot day so that may have been the reason. We were waiting much of the time standing in the hot sun. A shade would have been nice. Found out lots about Greenwich Village that was interesting. Several of the restaurants would have been nice to visit at leisure, but we were leaving the next day. I would recommend the tour for information about the Village and the local restaurants, but pick a more enthusiastic guide and cooler day.

Delicious Fun and Great Information!

Michael was wonderfully fun and informative. In spite of unseasonable rain and cold on 8/10/07 we had a wonderful time. He truly shared his love of Greenwich Village and many of the nooks and crannies of the area that we otherwise would have never known about. I have already told our friends who travel to New York frequently about the tour and I am certain they will take my recommendation. They always do. Thank you so much. Especially loved "Milk and Cookies".

Michael, our guide, was passionate and knowledgeable about the neighborhood in which he resides. We had a great time tasting samples and learning much about the history of the area. Highly recommend.

Definitely more a cultural than a food tour

I am a true foodie, and was expecting to have lots of small tastings at lots of stalls. Very wrong. Superb tour guide, really fun guy, and told us alot about the history of the area. Would have been better with more tastings.

Wonderful and Entertaining Tour!

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting New York! Our tour guide, Mike, was extremely knowledgeable about the area, as he must have been a resident of Greenwich, which really added to the tour experience - it gave you a flavor or what it was like to live in Greenwich - past and present! The food we sampled was delicious, and with the great commentary from our guide made this tour well worth the time and money!! Thanks for a great experience!

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was very informative and very personable. I thought the tour had a nice balance in the contenet that was shared with us. The food we tasted and the history provided me with a greater understanding and appreciation. I enjoyed my experince so much that the next time I go to N.Y.C. I will do another tour,

A great way to discover NY hidden treats!
Tue, Jun 26, 07   11:00 AM Kirstenpiper Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
I thoroughly recommend to those visiting NY starting with the Greenwich Village Food tasting and cultural tour. Its a great way to discover a number of fabulous restaurants to go back and visit during the trip, whilst also providing some history to NY.

Our tour guide was a well informed local and the colour she could add in relation to the changes to the area and her experience in living in NY gave the tour extra flavour than can be gained from tour books.

In particular, I went back to Cornelia St cafe for dinner and entertainment a couple of nights after I was on the tour and this turned out to be the highlight of my time in NY. I would never of found this venue with out the tour.

This is a great tour for those visting or just moving to NY and I have already started to recomend it to friends planning a future adventure in the US.

Anothe great tour from Zerve
Sat, Jun 2, 07   12:00 PM lizotte Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
this was our 3rd tour with Zerve - we did Chelsea's Market in 2005; Greenwich Village in 2006 and Greenwich/Soho this year (2007).

Your tours are GREAT! very informative and the food is delicious and of a great variety. We learned a lot and now will be able to visit these areas on our own and know where to visit.

what will we do next year - you've got to come up with something new.

Highly recommended tour due to the personality and vast knowledge of tour guide. Having the business owners visit with the tour group was a nice touch.

Tour guide might not want to make assumption that everyone is from out-of-town. I didn't not enjoy the tasting consisting of deep-fried mushrooms as much.
