We had a great time with our tour guide Kurt (Curt). You could instantly tell he knew his "business". Not only that, he had a great rapport with all the vendors that they welcomed us with open arms. Towards the end of our tour (the walking part of the Meat packing district) it started to rain buckets. We stopped at an Italian restaurant that was on our tour and the manager offered all our group (16) free soda and/or coffee and also set out a delicious side of deep fried zucchini!!!! All on the house. I am sure it is because of how our guide treated the businesses. He was just great with our group and so humorous. As a matter of fact, as we were walking through the Chelsea Market, a couple asked me what kind of tour I was on. I gave them the information and told them it was great!

Thanks so much and I will recommend this tour and your Greenwich Village Tour (I was on that tour several years ago and had a great time) to anyone I know who wants to get the "inside" info on both these areas of NYC.

Our leader, Kurt, was well informed, organized, and had a good, spontaneous sense of humor.

The food was plentiful, and for the most part, delicious. i never knew there were so many kinds of salt.

Our walk through the meatpacking district was informative and well presented, especially, the biker's bar.

My friend and I had a wonderful time, and are looking forward to the Greenwich Village tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Food Tour of Greenwich Village. Our guide, Mike(?) was extremely informative, very entertaining and generous with his time. The foods were all good, and the social history of the area was really enlightening. We would recommend this tour to anyone we know who visits New York. We found the Speakeasy particularly interesting!

My husband, three teenage daughters, and I had a great time. The food was delicious and the historical facts and trivia were interesting and fun. Lots of great suggestions on resturants we will definitely be visiting in the future.

My husband and I have been to NYC several times. We picked up a brochure in our hotel lobby on our last trip. We arranged for this food tour on this trip and were pleased with our choice. We learned so much more than we had hoped. We plan on arranging another food tour on our next trip. We passed the info on to friends who are coming to NYC. Thanks for the learning experience!!

Really liked it, but might throw a glass of wine or a beer in, along with maybe some fries or something from 86 bedford. My husband is a med size guy and he could have eaten quite a bit more w/o stuffing himself.

Foods of New York, Greenwich Village Tour

This is a fantastic tour! A great introduction to one of the most distinctive New York neighborhoods. After visiting the "big city", it's great to get an intimate look at how some of the people actually live. Our guide was extremely personable, and provided insights that are simply unavailable any other way. My husband and I took this same tour a few years ago, and although the neighborhood was the same, the tour was completely different. Our first tour was during a weekday which permitted greater access to the interior of more stores. However, our guide for the second tour seemed to know more of the residents, and they were able to provide a greater insite into the uniqueness of the area. Some of the stores were the same, some different, a reflection of the constantly evolving neighborhood and tour evaluations. All in all, we'd certainly do it again, and we look forward to taking additional tours through this organization.

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.

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.
