Great Time!

This tour was excellent! Our group leader, Ed, was friendly and knew about the area in detail. We learned a lot about the West Village and enjoyed great food as well. The food tastings were spaced so that we were full but not too full. We can't wait to go back on our own to try several of the restaurants. We also plan to take a different tasting tour in the near future. It was a highlight of our trip.

Tasty Discoveries in the Village

If you are looking to get some inspiration on where to eat in the village and where to get the best food this tour really does it!!!

It was great to get to visit a variety of shops in the area and get some information about the area you are in as well. My friend and I ended up going back to several of them to pick up some nice food or to go out to eat.

Joe's Pizza go another visit as the pizza was very tasty - even with only a few ingredients they have managed to create a wonderful tasting slice. Not fatty and not stingy on the portions either!!

We went back to Cornelia Street Cafe for some evening entertainment (one of the higlights of our trip to New York) and a lovely dinner as well.

Going back to Little Havana for dinner was a real treat.You can taste the home cooked tast of the food and the love with which it was made.

One day we decided to do a picnic on the Husdon and got our bread from Amy's Bread, the cheese from Murrays Cheese Shop and some delicious rice balls from Faicco's, followed by some Cookies from Milk and Cookies... it was HEAVENLY and brought back all the good memories of the food tour.

Another place we went back to was Pesce Pasta - lovely anti pasta, agreat bottle of wine and some great food for a most reasonable budget.

Snack Taverna was not covered on the tour itself but was in the leaflet and we had a lovely dinner there as well. Possibly the best taramasalata I have ever had!!

The good thing about the food tour is that it gives you the feeling that any place covered in it, even if you do not get to taste their food on the spot, will be worth a visit in our case that certainly was the case.

Our guide Heather had only been guiding tours for a short while but you would never know it form the way she brought the area to life with her stories and she managed to cover plenty of ground whilst going round whizzing us through the stops on the tour.

You will never go hungry again in the village if you do this tour!!!

More history than food

Overall I enjoyed the tour, it was very informative, providing a historical overview of the area and highlighting current hotspots. But since the tour was specifically a "Food Tour" I expected a little more emphasis on the food culture and tastings. I would have appreciated more tasting stops as there was certainly enough time for them.

Okay but not great

I found that we heard more about the history of the area than the history of the food. The food tastings were excellent, but there weren't many of them. I can't believe the sparse food offerings for the cost of the tour (3 hours). I was also disappointed that we spent almost an hour walking around a park. If that entire section had been cut out, the tour would have been far better.

enjoyed thoroughly

before we went to new york,we found this tour on the internet. we then read reviews. there weren't any that were negative, so we had to try it. we were so happy we did. we learned so much about the area , the foods, the people think highly of their neighbors-seem to really respect each other. we loved all the foods we tasted-my husband expecially loved the choc. chip cookies. our tour guide, dave, did a great job. we also were running late because of n,y, traffic, ran 6 blocks to get to murrays cheese shop, and lucked out; they were waiting for us. we were so appreciative. we would have been able to catch up, but we sure were relieved. a great tour, and we did have plenty to eat.

Interesting and Informative

Unfortunately the day we took the tour the temperature was 99 degrees with an excessive amount of humidity, which for me and our friends was very uncomfortable. Our tour guide,Heather, was pleasant and informative and with the temps so high she tried to spend a bit more time indoors, but a great deal of the tour was outside learning about the architect of the various buildings of the village. There was numerous stops along the way of food tasting. We all were hoping to taste more foods, but all in all it was informative and interesting.

My second time!

I went on the first tour last summer with my nieces, I loved it so much and talked about it so much I purchased tickets for my husband and me. Again, loved the food and the information about old New York. The tour guide was great and knowledgable, but the first tour guide was a "true" New Yorker and enjoyed her jokes and stories more. I think a tour guide from New York is more what tourist are looking for. My husband enjoyed the tour and couldn't compare it with another and he had fun! I would go again when company comes in from out of town but will request a "New Yorker".

Worth the money, for sure.

We had such a great time !

My friend from Ohio and I (from NYC) had a blast on the Greenwich Village Tasting Tour. Not only was ALL of the food delicious, but we also learned a ton about the history of old time new york city. The tour was extremely well organized and orchestrated and our guide Kurt had a great personality and a sense of humor that was right up our alley. I highly recommend this tour to visitors from out of town as well as native NY'ers. Thanks !

Exciting and Delicious

I had so much fun on this walking tour through Greenwich Village. It gave me the opportunity to see how New Yorkers live and, we saw some of the sites of NYC. Our guide, Ed, was excellent. He was so much fun and so informative. The foods we sampled along the way were delicious. I would recommend this tour to anyone, whether they be from out of town, or those locals that have never walked through the Village.

Even a native has much to learn

I live here but my sister was visiting me .. and this was her very first trip to US and New York. This tour put her on the top -- not only did we have fun tasting different things, but also the history of the Village - the many interesting people who have frequented these stores, restaurants -- the little gems along the way... :) She of course loved it. I was hoping to get a fun time but I guess even a ntive has much to learn... I would recommend this for one and all.

Diana - you are a considerate, patient guide.

I had Sam as my guide and he was warm, funny, friendly, and smart - he even learned every participant's name! The tour was on a cold, rainy day-a perfect activity because 99% of the tour was inside (he would have done more outside but we were too cold and wet). Thanks for providing this service...Chelsea market is a real NYC gem for foodies! Ann Turner, Chevy Chase, MD
