Fabulous tour!

Loved it!

We were visiting NY for a corporate convention and this tour was even better than any of the other activities/events that had been planned for us.

Our guide was a wealth of information and the tastings were just wonderful.

We are planning to be back in NY sometime in the fall of '07 with some friends and this tour will be on the top of our 'must do' list!

Ron, our guide was very knowledgable & pleasant & the food was excellent. Especially interesting was to see the transition in this area from a seedy industriial part of town to a blossoming fashion & dining destination.

A Brilliant Outlook on Greenwich Village
Fri, Sep 22, 06   11:00 AM blodwyn Female 60-69 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
The overall experience was a brilliant outlook on the history of Greenwich Village and it's past inhabitants. The guide, Michael, added to this brilliant outlook with his present day first hand knowledge and his good grasp on the past history.His great sense of humor added to the sheer enjoyment of the tour.

The choice of restaurants and food was thoroughly enjoyable and each restaurant made us feel welcome. Murray's was the best because we were able to sit and observe while tasting the delicious fare. So much to learn about cheese.

Thank you from 1 welsh visitor (age 67) and 1 New York visitor (age 62).

Our tour with Michael (?) was awesome. He is more than knowledgeable about Greenwich. He knew the locals on the street - they would stop and just say hello, as well as the shop owners - not just the ones from the tour. He knew the history of the buildings that we walked thru and around and conveyed himself as to be interesting - not just in "history lesson" drone. He explained the foods that we tasted and kept the pace lively. When we come back, we would love to have him do another tour for us!

The tour itself was great! We truly enjoyed the local fare and it was hard to pick a favorite. I was so impressed with the still in tact farmhouse in the courtyard of the Palma restaurant.

We actually revisited Greenwich the next day to stroll some of the shops at leisure, have another slice of pizza at Joes and grab a falafel on our way out. When we arrived at the tour site, we were early and ended up at Roccos Bakery not realizing that it was part of the tour. We actually walked out of the one next door because we didn't care for the offerings. As Micahel explained, one was northern Italian (the one we walked out of) and the other Southern. We prefer sourthern Italian food so that made more sense!

Next time we get to New York, we will definately take another tour with your company. It was well worth the time and money!

Great tour for the cook in you
Fri, Aug 11, 06   11:00 AM sgvice Male Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
I can see people who love to cook will enjoy this tour. It's full of neat stories about famous TV chefs, unique ingredients, the NYC dining scene, and tasty samples. I'm more of a history and architecture buff, so the next time I get to NYC I'll probably try the Greenwich Village tour my wife and son rave about.

This was a wonderful addition to our NY trip!

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. First our guide, Mike was fantastic! Second we loved the food!. Third we loved Greenwich and last we loved all of the local history. We went back down to one of the restaurants for supper that evening and hope to return to the area on our next trip to NY. I will definitely recommend this to anyone I know going to NYC.

This is a must see if you have ever had any interest in the history and people of the Village. Our guide was entertaining an told us many interesting stories from the past. The food was fantastic. My husband and I can't wait to return to NYC so we can sit and enjoy the food and atmosphere of Greenwich Village.

Thank you Todd for the special attention.

Chelsea/Meatpacking District Tour
Sun, Jul 23, 06   11:30 AM JeanneBuck Female 30-39 Local Unspecified
Good tour and excellent guide. Most of the time was spent in the Chelsea Market, a place I wouldn't have necessarily known about had I not taken the tour. The tastings were tremendous, however, they were a little "dessert heavy." I would have preferred more tastings that offered more choices in food. The best tasting was the salt tasting - I never knew that salt could be so varied. The tour guide's knowledge of the area was top notch - I especially enjoyed getting to know more about the meat packing history and the initiative to save the skyway. This is the best tour if it is raining outside since most of the time is spent inside the Chelsea Market.
