Outstanding, interesting discussion and food
Mon, Dec 24, 07   11:30 AM daengen Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
We were there at 11:30 on December 24 with our grown children. I don't recall our guide's name, but he had lived in the area forever and gave a great history talk without being boring. He really helped us understand the Greenwich Village area. The food tastings were fun and excellent, and we went back to several places later in the day. The O&Co. shop shipped our olive oil, etc. (received quickly and in perfect condition), and we bought things at a couple of other places as well.

We will come back to these places (our kids live in Manhattan) and we will recommend your tour to anyone who will listen! Thanks for a great three hours!

We had a wonderful tour led by Barri. She wove a lovely story as we moved from pizza place... to food shop... to restaurant. Our appreciate of Greenwich Village and it's food increased as the tour continued. A fun way to learn about the village and NY food history, while enjoying tasty treats along the way

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I was especially pleased that the tour guide started exactly on time, latecomers had to find us we didn't have to wait on them.

The only thing i would change is the tipping policy. Can't you pay your folks what you need to and charge it in the ticket price or make it clear that tips are expected and not included in the ticket price?

Best Tour Ever

I am a travel agent from Dallas and have done many tours all over the world. The Food tour of Greenwich Village was absolutely the best and most fun ever. The tour was late starting, but Cindy's humor and enthusiasm made up for the delay. I loved the quality of the establishments that we visited. This tour is top notch.

I will now be recommending this tour to every client that I send to NYC. Any way that I can get commission? Your company is on the right track with the way they organize the business. The hand out is superior as is the attitude. Bravo to all of you.

The tour was well-worth the $40.00 spent for the ticket. Even though it did rain the entire time we were touring, we were able to get in and out of the eating establishments in a timely manner. We were served foods such as cheese, bread, pizza, sausage, olive oil, and delicious bakery items. We had enough food to take the place of a light lunch. We met people from all over the United States and Canada. The group was very compatible and the guide, who was very friendly and helpful, knew more about the area since she lived in Greenwich Village. After the tour was over, we stayed in The Village for another two hours to visit some of the shops that we didn't have time to see on the tour. Would we do this again? Most definitely! We will probably come back next year when we make our annual trip to New York.

Interesting and fun afternoon - Food ok
Sun, Oct 21, 07   12:30 PM hewong2002 Unspecified Unspecified Combination Unspecified
This is a fun way to spend an afternoon very interesting facts and history are imparted and our guide had lived in the neighborhood for years. I found him very genuine as people on the street passed by they all knew our guide by name. The food is okay don't expect anything gourmet (pizzas/breads/cheeses). I live in New York and know the neighborhood so I know most of the stores we stopped by but I still managed to discover one new store that I will return to. It was a lovely afternoon.

The samples were very good. The tour was a little long since a third of the establishments do not participate in taste testing. I was impressed with the guide's knowledge of the history, architecture, and restaurants of this tour.
