great time on tour
Wed, Jul 12, 06   11:30 AM Janmcnaught Female 50-59 Combination Unspecified
Almost felt like it was a bit long. I think part of it iwas because it was hot and humid. Would have been nice to have built in a little time to make purchases at the individual restaurants/bakeries. Liked the variety of samples as well. Maybe the part about the architecture l'd have rather replaced with more time to make purchases.

Tour guide and food were great, note that the tour incorporates a portion of time on the areas architecture (over half the tour). The eating we did though, was great.

One of the best tours we have been on

We were on the 11:30 tour June 23, 06. Our tour guide Kirt was very knowledgeable, and had as much fun as we did on the tour. Enjoyed very much and have recommended this tour to others. We are originally from New York and was back visiting, and we realized we never would have seen this much of this area on our own. When we come back up for a visit we will go on another tour with you.

Thank you

Jen and Mike

A tasty and informative way to see the Village

I have already used my new found knowledge by providing a restaurant recommendation to friends who will be visiting NYC this weekend.

I think the tour could be improved upon by offering more tastes (could be as small as a spoonful) of food from the restaurants. In my opinion there were too many sweet tastes (cookies, nuts, canoli). Also it would be very nice to have paired a glass of NY state wine with the cheese from Murray's. The stop at Aphrodesia should be eliminated - it is too much of a stretch to include this shop in a food and cultural tour. Also it was puzzling that at least half of the restaurants we were given on our list of 36 were not mentioned or pointed out to us.

I do plan to take the tour of the Village and Soho and the Chelsea Market tour on future visits to NYC. Thanks.

Outstanding Tour

For people who are not familiar with Greenwich Village, this is the perfect tour. It gives you a chance to see the local area and taste the foods that are avaliable at the local stores and restaurants. My wife and I thoroughly enjoy everything we ate. The tour guide "Susan" could not have been any better. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. I will recommend this tour to my friends here in New Orleans on their next trip to New York.

The tour guide was excellent--engaging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I took two of my out-of-town family members and we all loved it. I have lived in New York for 2 years and am a certifiable foodie and I still learned a ton and discovered some great places to eat! Highly recommended.

Very Splendid Experience

This was the first time I had ever taken part in a food and walking tour of Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District, and I enjoyed it very much. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and I found my group to be friendly as well.

I loved sampling all of the foods offered. I even went back to the Market to buy a few things once the tour had officially ended. I intend on taking part in the other food/walking tours offered, such as the Greenwich Village tour.

Good eats

I toured Chelsea Market on Saturday, June 3, 2006. The guide was funny, informed and a pleasure to spend time with. He kept us on schedule but also allowed us roaming time. As for the market itself, it's beyond words. I loved every tasting and felt welcomed along the way. I would highly recommend this tour to locals & tourists who love good food.

As a mother and adult daughter taking a weekend trip to NYC, we both agreed, this was the highlight of our trip. The combination of history, food, and orientation to the city was invaluable.

Our guide, Michael, was excellent, very informative. The tour is a definite must for anyone interested in knowing more of the history of the village. The local food was authentic and amazing. Highly recommend. I can't wait for my next trip to the city to do another tour.

A great experience

I believe Cindy was our guide. She is a wealth of knowledge - not just about the restaurants we toured and tasted, but also about the area, the people, the architecture and the businesses. I really enjoyed the tour. All the samples more than made up a meal. I did return to do some light shopping and snacking later.

I will recommend it to friends for sure.

Probably the most unique part of the tour was the salt tasting. I never gave it much thought before. I myself would have prefered more chocolate to the salt, but it was still very informative.
