Let me start by saying that I love everything about NYC and have come back often--for the last 52 years.

I try to take at least one walking tour each time I visit... I feel it is the best way to really get to know & feel the particular area.

This Chelsea/Meatpacking Tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was great--he was enthusiastic, knowledgable, helpful, and fun.

I have already suggested this tour to my New York friends.

We found all the information about the bulidings and history of the city really interesting. The food tastings were good too. Good idea to do this at the start of your trip so you can go back and eat at some of the restaurants.

1. Tour guide Cindy was wonderful. In addition to her warm and funny style, you realized that she was a vital part of the neighborhood as people on the street acknowledged and greeted her.

2. The time flew by quickly. It really could have been longer.

3. I'm glad we didn't take take out to "shop" because it's a waste of our time and her expertise.

4. Group size of 16 made it personalized -- any bigger would be hard to manage and feel impersonal.

5. More tastes of more things -- even if a little bitty mouthful.

This was an excellent tour. Two of us went and thoroughly enjoyed the food and information provided by the guide concerning the market history and local neighborhood. We would definitely join a similar tour of another NYC neighborhood.

We booked this tour on a whim and really enjoyed it. We liked all the cultural tidbits our tour guide related with enthusiasm. We were a little disappointed with the amount of food we got to taste. It was all delicious but we thought we would be trying more things than what we got. After the tour was over , we went hunting for a place to eat, which of course was one of the places we tried on the tour. We will definitely try the Chelsea Market tour next.

Enthusiastic, approachable and knowledgeable guide, tasty selection of goodies and useful information to take away all helped make this a thoroughly enjoyable experience - we headed back again next day and plan to stay locally next trip.

Would recommend it to food lovers

I enjoyed the review not only for the tasting and exploration of restaurants but for the history of the region. I found the host well informed, funny, observant( in watching out for us and making sure everyone kept together and had the opportunity of tasting) and did not take himself too seriously.

For suggestions on how to improve:

1) I found the last eating place at a Kebab outlet out of place with the rest of the tour.

2) Perhaps make it shorter to 2 hours.

3) Include a meal - which would raise the cost though

Overall I would recommend it to food lovers.

There were four women in our group and each one of us loved the tour. The guide was funny, very informative, knowledgeable, and loved what he was doing. Anyway, he did a good job making us believe he loved his job. The food was delicious and the variety was interesting. The only drawback was we didn't have enough time in our personal schedule to go back and explore the places we saw on the tour. Allow yourself time to go back and visit some of the shops after the tour is over.

A great combination of food sampling and history of the neigborhood and the surrounding area. I'd reccomend that you take the tour on your first day in the city so that you have as much time as possible to enjoy all the fabulous restaurants.

Great food tour! Pleasant and knowlegeable tour guide. The tastings were all timed just right. The village has never looked so good and now so different! Will definitely do this again.

We had a great time on the tour and learned some historical facts about Greenwich Village while sampling scrumptious food. We had Cindy as our tour guide and I must say she was quite entertaining as well as informative.

I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about what Greenwich Village has to offer, especially if you love to eat.

Thanks again Cindy for a great time!

The tour went on for longer than originally anticipated, but we were all having such a good time, nobody seemend to mind!

Cindy, our guide, is a local New Yorker and it was wonderful to have an insider's viewpoint on the area. She was also very amusing, obviously enjoying herself and added tidbits of infomration many tour guides wouldn't bother with.

I am seriously considering booking her for private tours when other people come out to visit me. It was one of the best $40 I've spent in the city.
