did this on a recommendation of a friend who did the same Greenwich Village tour and she had 2 more food stops than I. Needed another food taste - of something other than pizza or desert.

What a great tour! Not only did we get to feast on a wide variety of foods but also got a wonderful tour of the Village. Our tour guide (Amy) was very knowledgable about the area and provided a very interesting narrative as we walked around. It was my first visit to the Village but after Amy's tour we went back and toured around on our own, and had John's pizza for dinner. I would highly recommend this tour to all of my friends and family!

Wonderful experience

We Canadians booked a food tour of Greenwich Village. From Murrays Cheese Shop to all the little family run Italian delis/bakeries were excellent. Our tour guide, Bari, was full of all kinds of food/historical/arcitectural information. She was great. I would highly recommend this tour, and I hope to return to NYC and book a food tour of a different district.

Much Thanks

Our guide (Kurt) was unbelievably knowledgeable, witty, and entertaining! He was so enthusiastic, he even made an effort to learn our names. The food was out of this world.

Interesting and informitive

The pace was good and the information provided gave me a sense of comfort about each place we toured. The extra cultural info was a plus and for me, an outsider to the Village.

My children ages 10, 13 & 15 enjoyed the tour but some of the info was beyond their interest level. The pace, however, made up for that.

cindy was the tour leader and did a great job: she is very knowledgeable about greenwich village, the history of greenwich village and the handouts were very useful. Above all, the food tasting was wonderful too-a history lesson while you eat...what's better????

Fantastic tour - You get some of the history of the area plus the sampling of food at various places in the village. The food is great and the tour is alot of fun. I've taken this tour twice and would do it again.

Great Tour!

I know this tour was good because even though I grew up in New York City and know Greenwich Village very well, I stll had an informative and satisfying tour. The guide Cindy was excellent. She was approachable, knowledgeable and kept everything in motion so that the entire group was keeping up and enjoying themselves. I would recommend the Greenwich Village tour to anyone for the wonderful food sampled enroute and the worthwhile commentary provided by our guide. I intend to take the other tours on future visits.

Fantastic Food Tour
Sun, Oct 1, 06   11:00 AM Barbsie Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
We were with a group of about 15 the Sunday that we went on the food tour. The tour person was very knowledable about the area. We had 7to 9 different tastings which was not just a little bite but for instance a large slice of Pizza at the one stop so we were all very pleased. She took us down some of the side streets to little restaurants and showed us the architecture of a lot of buildings. I would highly recommend this food tour. Our hotel had never heard of it so they asked us to get some information for their hotel guests that are seeking a fun thing to do. Well Worth it

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!
