Enjoyable and Informative

My daughter and I enjoyed the walking tour very much. We both feel we'll come back to enjoy several of the restaurants over the years. I liked the historical information as well. We agreed that the guide, although she was certainly delightful and conscientious as well as informative, lacked a sparkle that we've enjoyed using a Big Onion Tour where the guide was a PhD student full of enthusiasm, exhibited a personal interest in the guests, and was delighted to share additional information as needed.

But we'll definitely be back over the years to use your tour service. Thanks.

Just as good as the first time!

I took this tour for the first time 3 years ago with my girl friend and enjoyed so much that I knew when my husband and I were going to be visiting NYC, that I had to take him on the tour too. It was just as enjoyable the second time and worth every cent! I tell everyone I know that if they are visiting NYC that they have to take the tour.

Michael was an excellent guide. He sprinkled in just enough history between tastings and about the restaurants. The food was very good. We also enjoyed the free wine tasting after the tour was over. I highly recommend this tour.

A NYC must do!

Having been to NYC many times before, I was looking for something different. My friend recommended the tour, and it completely lived up to my expectations. The food was delicious-- and getting to have tastes of everything is the way to go! ....But my brother and I thought the best part was learning about the Chelsea Mkt, and area. We look forward to returning in a few years and seeing how much it has changed! Our tour guide Wendy was an added bonus-- her animation and humor really brought the tour to life! Thanks oodles!

Loved the tour and all the food.

We were given more food than I expected (loved all your choices), tried some things I had never tasted before and appreciated it when our guide shared so much information about the area's history and give us specific details that made the buildings and people come alive.

We had 12 people in our group and even though it worked, I would have liked to have been in a slightly smaller group - like 8 to 10 people.

I am still sharing details about the tour with my friends and family.

Hope to come on your tour during our next trip.

Cindy was the reason this tour was so good. She talked about what is happening now around Chelsea Market area and the places we were seeing in addition to talking about the history of the area. She was great!

Beyond my expectations!

I took the Greenwich tour a few years back and really enjoyed it, so I figured I'd try this one. It was fantastic! The guide was knowlegeable and entertaining. THe chosen vendors were very good, the area was perfect. I thought the tour was definitely worth the ticket price- food servings were generous- I like the Lobster bisque!

Thank you!

tour good, food mediocre
Sun, Jan 22, 06   11:30 AM cassidynyc Female 50-59 Combination Unspecified
very interesting building and history of past and recent development and neighbourhood

food selection focused too much on sweet things--luncheon selection at buon italia was pedestrian and unsatisfying.

there was a sufficient quantity of food just not a balanced selection and not sophisticated enough--this is after all billed as a food tour and i (along with my friend) came away with no new knowledge

Tour guide very pleasant and knowledgable

We loved it!

Went on the tour Christmas week with friends from England, and we all had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, the information was presented in a fun, interesting way, and we had plenty of time to ask question and take photos. We are already planning to take the Chelsea tour this group also offers, and have plans to go back to some of the restaurants on the tour. Just make sure that if you go in winter your dress warmly!

Our tour guide was Bari- she was a font of information about the area.

All in all, a great day. If you are a foodie or want to become one, take the tour.

My husband and I took this tour while on a short holiday in NY. We have visited the city before, but found this activity a great way to see parts of the city we had not seen before as well as try some great food from local vendors. We highly recommend this tour.

We enjoyed the Greenwich Village Food Tour on our recent visit to New York. The guide was informative not only about the restaurants we visited, but also the historical and architectural aspects of the area.

Cindy, our guide, has a terrific rapport with vendors and restaurants we visited, and we were treated like like long time patrons every place we visited. She is tremendously knowledgeable on the history of the area, and her enthusiasm made a fun tour just that much better. Plan to do it again and recommend it to everyone I know.
