A tasty and informative way to see the Village

I have already used my new found knowledge by providing a restaurant recommendation to friends who will be visiting NYC this weekend.

I think the tour could be improved upon by offering more tastes (could be as small as a spoonful) of food from the restaurants. In my opinion there were too many sweet tastes (cookies, nuts, canoli). Also it would be very nice to have paired a glass of NY state wine with the cheese from Murray's. The stop at Aphrodesia should be eliminated - it is too much of a stretch to include this shop in a food and cultural tour. Also it was puzzling that at least half of the restaurants we were given on our list of 36 were not mentioned or pointed out to us.

I do plan to take the tour of the Village and Soho and the Chelsea Market tour on future visits to NYC. Thanks.

Outstanding Tour

For people who are not familiar with Greenwich Village, this is the perfect tour. It gives you a chance to see the local area and taste the foods that are avaliable at the local stores and restaurants. My wife and I thoroughly enjoy everything we ate. The tour guide "Susan" could not have been any better. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. I will recommend this tour to my friends here in New Orleans on their next trip to New York.

The tour guide was excellent--engaging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I took two of my out-of-town family members and we all loved it. I have lived in New York for 2 years and am a certifiable foodie and I still learned a ton and discovered some great places to eat! Highly recommended.

This was the first time I had ever taken part in a food and walking tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District, and I enjoyed it very much. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and I found my group to be friendly as well.

I loved sampling all of the foods offered. I even went back to the Market to buy a few things once the tour had officially ended. I intend on taking part in the other food/walking tours offered, such as the Greenwich Village tour.

I toured Chelsea Market on Saturday, June 3, 2006. The guide was funny, informed and a pleasure to spend time with. He kept us on schedule but also allowed us roaming time. As for the market itself, it's beyond words. I loved every tasting and felt welcomed along the way. I would highly recommend this tour to locals & tourists who love good food.

As a mother and adult daughter taking a weekend trip to NYC, we both agreed, this was the highlight of our trip. The combination of history, food, and orientation to the city was invaluable.

Our guide, Michael, was excellent, very informative. The tour is a definite must for anyone interested in knowing more of the history of the village. The local food was authentic and amazing. Highly recommend. I can't wait for my next trip to the city to do another tour.

I believe Cindy was our guide. She is a wealth of knowledge - not just about the restaurants we toured and tasted, but also about the area, the people, the architecture and the businesses. I really enjoyed the tour. All the samples more than made up a meal. I did return to do some light shopping and snacking later.

I will recommend it to friends for sure.

Probably the most unique part of the tour was the salt tasting. I never gave it much thought before. I myself would have prefered more chocolate to the salt, but it was still very informative.

We had a great time with our tour guide Kurt (Curt). You could instantly tell he knew his "business". Not only that, he had a great rapport with all the vendors that they welcomed us with open arms. Towards the end of our tour (the walking part of the Meat packing district) it started to rain buckets. We stopped at an Italian restaurant that was on our tour and the manager offered all our group (16) free soda and/or coffee and also set out a delicious side of deep fried zucchini!!!! All on the house. I am sure it is because of how our guide treated the businesses. He was just great with our group and so humorous. As a matter of fact, as we were walking through the Chelsea Market, a couple asked me what kind of tour I was on. I gave them the information and told them it was great!

Thanks so much and I will recommend this tour and your Greenwich Village Tour (I was on that tour several years ago and had a great time) to anyone I know who wants to get the "inside" info on both these areas of NYC.

It's a great way to get familiarized with the neighborhood for those who just moved to the area.
