Anothe great tour from Zerve
Sat, Jun 2, 07   12:00 PM lizotte Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
this was our 3rd tour with Zerve - we did Chelsea's Market in 2005; Greenwich Village in 2006 and Greenwich/Soho this year (2007).

Your tours are GREAT! very informative and the food is delicious and of a great variety. We learned a lot and now will be able to visit these areas on our own and know where to visit.

what will we do next year - you've got to come up with something new.

Highly recommended tour due to the personality and vast knowledge of tour guide. Having the business owners visit with the tour group was a nice touch.

Tour guide might not want to make assumption that everyone is from out-of-town. I didn't not enjoy the tasting consisting of deep-fried mushrooms as much.

we were not sure about a walking tour, honestly i thought it would be boring especially for three hours! Our guide Kurt was hysterical and we learned so much along the way, all while tasting great food and seeing great restaurants! fantastic.. we LOVED kurt and would recommend anyone taking the tour to try to request him!

Highlight of my NY experience
Sat, Apr 28, 07   11:30 AM mgmucha Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Unspecified
This tour exceeded my expectations. Amy was a very accommodating and knowledgeable guide. She paced the tour well and gave fascinating details of cultural history and tied it to current day tidbits as well. The food was fabulous with nice variety and the handout was particularly useful for the discounts and information included. We even went to one of the restaurants that evening for dinner and a live jazz event. We shopped at some of the stores as well and were very intrigued by the selection. I highly recommend this tour and would consider any of the other Foods of NY offerings.

Delightful tour of Greenwich Village
Fri, Apr 27, 07   11:00 AM allierat Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
The day was cool and rainy but we had 100% of the group show up. Curt our guide was kind to let us linger in several of the restaurants. His commentary was fun and he obviously knew a lot about food preparation. There was enough food to sample to make lunch and enough information that we need to return to Greenwich Village.

As great as both of the other tours, this one touches on so many different types of food. Lots of historical info as well. Barri was a super guide, professional and knowledgeable.

We have so many places to re-visit. I hope Foods of NY adds lots more tours. It's a big city!

This was a different and fun way to enjoy New York City. We learned a lot. It is a great way to incoporate lunch into your tour of NYC. Marie, our tour guide, was very informative and went to great lengths to ensure we all had a great time.

Our tour guide, Michael was outstanding, I throughly enjoyed the tour, while learning a lot of history of the Village. I would suggest , you provide a small glass of wine with the wonderful cheese, if possible and a small glass of milk with the delicious chocolate chip cookie. I will recommend this tour to my friends.

Fantastic Tour

This tour was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so glad that I took it. The guide was excellent and so informative. The tasting was so much fun and I had no idea that the Chelsea Market had so much to offer. I highly advise taking the tour. My granddaughter was with me and she is 18. She enjoyed the tour as much as I did and was never bored.

Great history of the Meatpacking District
Fri, Apr 13, 07   12:00 PM cllbhunt Female 50-59 Unspecified Unspecified
This food tour centered mostly around the Chelsea Marketplace, and it was very informative about not only the large wholesale food providers, but also the history of the building. It covered the building's past lives including the restoration and revival to its form today. The last part of the tour took us outside and around the neighborhood. It is a fascinating part of the city that is now in a major transition. All of the tastings were in the marketplace-I wish we had had some tastings in a couple of the restaurants outside. The tastings included too many sweets for my palate-would have enjoyed more "real food" from restaurants etc. But it was well worth it-there was a lot of food, and you definitely won't go hungry!

Food focus

This activity is very focused on food in the neighborhood: restaurants, bakeries and stores. To learn about the literary or artistic Greenwich Village you need to take another tour. The information provided is very interesting and can be very usefull with visiting family or friends.
