Great highlight of the holiday!
Tue, Sep 27, 05   11:00 AM Alanlaird Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
Took the tour after a recommendation from a friend and will recommend it to others coming to New York. Interesting combination of detail about the area, the people and of course the food - the tasters were great.

We went back to 'Le Gigot' as our final meal before leaving - a great way to finish the holiday - we mentioned that we were there as a direct result of going on your food tour.

Kurt was a really good guide - humerous, informative and very enthusiastic - a credit to your business.

We would recomend that visitors take the tour at the start of their holiday so that they can go back to have snacks and meals at the establishments during their stay.

The printed summary guide and local map was very useful - it helped us remember the various places and the contact details enabled us to phone and book reservations.

Little too long

I thought the tour was about 45 minutes too long. The tour was very informational and we enjoyed it, but the fatigue was a little distracting. Slowly shuffling your feet and standing around is more tiring than walking at a brisk pace. Our guide, I don't remember her name, was very, very informative and I would take a tour with her again.

Excellent and fun trip through the village

The food was great, the history, culture and context were fascinating, but the Tour Guide - Cindy - was New York personified. Colorful, cultured, caring, and funny - full of the chutzpah that typifies New York. A real insider who gave a real insider's view and had just the right touch at each of the food stops to ensure that we got nothing but the best from the best that the village has to offer. Outstanding! Can't wait to try another tour on our next trip to the Big Apple! More than a tour: a tour-de-force!

Delightful experience

We attended this activity on the recommendation of friends of our great nephew - all who live in NYC. We were on our first time trip to NYC. Our great nephew attended with us as he had never been on the tour before. Our guide was outgoing, enthusiastic and gave us a good overview of the area and much interesting historical information. The food was delicious and a nice variety. The time frame was just right. . It was long enough to be enjoyable without feeling rushed and not too long to be exhausting. --- a great way to experience Greenwich Village.

Absolutely and Deliciously Fun!

On the recommendation of my dentist, my friend and I booked the tour while we were on my retirement excursion to NYC. Our guide, Curtis, was the best! He was entertaining, informative, personable, and seemed to enjoy the tour as much as we did---a welcome treat! We could have walked Greenwich Village on our own but would have seen little in comparison. The food sampling was delightfully varied and yummy, making for return visits a must. The tour was the best, one I'll recommend to anyone who asks for what to see and do in New York City!

Best time and money ever spent on a tour

We had a witty, charming, and very knowledgable guide. This is such a far cry from the canned tours I've been on before. We went places we never would have found on our own, learned their history, met the local folks, and, of course, ate great food.

Excellent tour
Sun, Sep 4, 05   11:45 AM jimbobwe46 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
Mike (our your guide) did a great job. My wife and I went back the next day and patronized Murray's Cheese, Bruno's, Rocco's, Aphrodisia and the Cornelia Street Cafe. We never would have found these fabulous shops if it weren't for the tour. We also enjoyed Mike's history and background of Greenwich Village. Is there anyone in the village that doesn't know and like Mike? We've been recommending the tour to everyone we've spoken to on our return home. Thanks for a wonderful Sunday afternoon in the city.

The "Mayor of Greenwich Village" was great .. he knew had great stoies and secrets about the area that it was sad when the tour was over. The different foods were great too .. already planning to do it again with friends from out of town.

We learned a great deal about the area and sampled some great food. We went back that same night to one of the restaurants we visited. I highly recommend it.

I am always trying to find an unusual gift for my sister in law's birthday and this tour was suggested to me by a friend. We had the very best time. The selections of sites with the history was a great way to spend time in N.Y. Our tour guide Zoya was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Needless to say the tastings at all of the resturants were great! And you are absolutely correct in saying that there is no need for lunch after the tour! I am sure we will return for another tour---can't wait.

Thanks so much for a very memorable day in N.Y.!!

The tour was a little long but definitley worth our while! We ate some amazing food and got great ideas as where to book a great dinner reservation! (which we did and the food was amazing!!!) If you like food, good laughs, and a little exersice, this tour is for you! We took this tour on an extremely hot NYC day and our tour guide gave us bottles and water from the beginning and let us stop to buy more or go to the restrooms whenever anyone needed to! It was a great way to see the Village!

Entertaining and Informative

While I am a native New Yorker, there was much learned after having taken this tour. I think a lot has to do with the luck you have with your particular guide. Mine was very pleasant and definitely had more than just a working knowledge of the environment. I thought that the places we were taken were representative of the area and the many changes that seem to be taking place there. I enjoyed the different samples of food and could definitely see myself becoming a patron of some of those establishments. I also liked the walk outside where the guide pointed out some of the pricey stores that are coming into the area. I think this tour is a worthwhile experience for either a native or a tourist. Relating the information about the High Lline to the special section in the Sunday New York Times was a thoughtful touch.

It was a nice combination of food and history of neighbourhood. Tasting was delicious and abundant. I don't think you can go for big dinner after that.

Susan is very proffesional, friendly and made everybody comfortable.

Can you do tasting tours like this in other parts of city?

Great Tour

May daughter who is a New Yorker and myself from out of town found this to be a delightful tour. We especially enjoyed the combination of historic details about the Village along with the tastings in the various shops. It is a wonderful way to get a feel for the village and all that it has to offer
