Food, Fun and Fast Pace

Marie was a wonderful guide who kept us moving at a good clip, provided a vast amount of neighborhood information and served as a great food master. There were seven total tasting stops that ranged from pizza to chocolate chip cookies (still warm) to specialty meats, cheeses and my personal favorite...fried rice balls. And as if the food wouldn't be reason enough to highly recommend the tour, the historical information provided made us feel like part of the neighborhood. We even met some of the local residents who were out on the streets that added to the welcoming nature and feel throughout the entire tour.

I'm looking forward to my next trip to NYC so I can participate in one of the other Foods of NY neighborhood food tours.

Take it from a Midwest should take this tour the next time you find yourself in NYC.

The fascinating history of food and culture
Tue, Aug 26, 08   12:00 PM kmm220 Female 20-29 Combination Unspecified
We just had the most wonderful time on this tour. Even though I have dietary restrictions and I could not eat everything, they really made an effort to accommodate me at every establishment. Our guide, Michael, is a resident of the Greenwich Village for the last 25 years. He is not only a student of the history (knowing dates, people, places), but also brings a delightful piece of the personal histories of people in the neighborhood. The food is delicious and the tour was just all around fascinating. I highly recommend Michael. He is excellent!

Great Tour!

The tour was great, the tour guide was very informative about the history of the area and the food. There was a slight mix up with tour guides at first and we got off to a late start, but other than that it was well worth it!

The tour was a lot of fun. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and displayed a true love for the neighborhood. The food was also great-truly the best of what NY has to offer.

Our guide, Heather, was quite inspirational discussing all the fine restaurants in the Village. We had great food to taste but would have liked to taste more food from the restaurants visited.

Overall, I would highly recommend the visit.

The activity was not flexible or changeable

I booked 3 tickets to the 1:00p.m. Saturday tour 7/12. I was traveling from Indiana to New York city on vacation & was delayed 4 hours at the airport. I left a message at 9:00a.m. on Saturday to let the group know I would not be arriving in time to make the tour. The only option I was given was to buy 2 more tickets & get one free (another investment of $84.00 on top of the $110.00 I had already spent) I believe this is inflexible. I will not use the service again.

Having a New Yorker to tell you about the local food and the history of the area is something a tourist just can't get out of a Lonely planet.

Interesting and fun tour

Cindy, our guide, was fun, entertaining, and full of interesting information about Greenwich Village food, architecture, and history. She also seemed to know lots of people in the neighborhood which gave the tour an added bonus. I was surprised that there were so many New York locals who took the tour too.

Simply fantastic

Visited NYC for a broadway show on Friday and took this tour on Sat. It was one of the highlights of my weekend. Loved our guide, food samples and group. Will definately go back to some of the restaurants I saw on the tour. The landscape/historical part of the tour (in my opinion) was enchanting. It didn't even seem as though I was in NYC at times.

Our tour guide Kurt was well-informed, humorous and eager to share his knowledge and enthusiasm with the group. We went to a large variety of places as well as having an interesting tour of the area. It was eye-opening...and tasty!

Great tour of Central Village
Sat, Jul 5, 08   12:30 PM preethi27 Female Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the food selections. Feel like it's a better tour for people who will be in NYC a bit longer than a couple of days so that you can go back to these places and enjoy them. Was a bit disappointed with the 'Soho' part of the tour which amounted to essentially one block of Soho. A great block with 3 good tastings, to be sure. But barely skimmed Soho. This should be called just the Central Village tour.
