Eat, Drink and Enjoy!

The tour guide was very personable and well versed in the West Village area and the local fare. The tour was fun as well as informative and the various servings of food were just delicious! A wonderful way to spend the afternoon outdoors - eating drinking and learning about such a charming part of the City.

Wonderful, informative tour. Lots of interesting facts packed into a small space. Terrific food from a variety of ethnicities. Generous portions and very tasty. Attentive and personable tour guide. Highlight of our trip to NYC.

Tour was informative, fun and full of food.

The tour guide, Curt, was fab.

Would suggest take the tour as early as possible in your trip as you'll want to go back and revisit the food establishments!

This tour is highly recommended!

A very worthwhile experience

Despite continuous rain/sleet, the tour went ahead under the very capable leadership of Barri(e?). We visited some lovely shops/cafes/restaurants, all with their own unique style and providing quality produce, we sampled several during the tour. I had never tasted 'cannoli' before. We returned to 2 restaurants, 2 cafes and one shop during the days following the tour. Our guide also pointed out many places of architectural and cultural interest during the 3 hour tour. We will definitely book for other tours with this company on our next visit to New York and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and others.

Well done, again

I did the Chelsea market tour a few years ago and was so impressed with the guide's knowledge and engaging way of sharing. The Greenwich Village walking tour was just as good. It was a great and tasty way to get to know a little about the area. The tastings were delicious and plentiful, though heavy on the carbs.

Wonderful group outing for foodie friends!

We were a group of adults with teens who enjoyed this tour so much on a sunny mild day in March, eating delicious samples on the streets of Greenwich Village with our guide, and inside at Soy and Sake as well. We all learned so much and then spent time shopping at some of the stores we visited on the tour, and can't wait to try out our purchases together when we get home - don't know if we can create the same moments of food heaven back home, but we'll try. Our guide was helpful, informative, well-prepared, and patient too - would definitely do another one of your tours when we return to NYC again.

An excellent complement to any visit to NY

I joined up on this tour on a recommendation from a colleague and found this tour to be one of the highlights of my first trip to NY. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided information not just for the local food, but for the neighbourhood as well. The guide's enthusiasm for the tour and great humour made for a very pleasant experience. I will definitely be recommending this tour to others.

More of a walking tour than a food tour
Sun, Jan 2, 11   11:30 AM duwelk Unspecified Unspecified Local Couple on a Date
The food was good, but the information was better. The food tastings were light and didn't include any interaction with the owners, only the tour guide. Generally very good, but would have liked to see more food as it is a "food tour".

Perfect for out-of-towners

Great tour!!! My first trip to NYC, first day, first everything. The tour was a great intro to the Village. Great insight and historical reference. The food was much better than I expected it to be. Portions were good. Fun group, and a great tour guide. Well worth the $$$. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Good Intro to Neighborhood and Variety of Cuisine
Thu, Dec 30, 10   12:30 PM yalongflor Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The selections are a good introduction to the choices available of purveyors and not just restaurants in the neighborhood.

I chose this tour over the others offered by the same company because of the variety of cuisines. Though we did have Indian, Middle Eastern, and Cuban, it would be better to have more of the 'other' world cuisines that we kept passing by. The tastings themselves were good fare, not spectacular, but I was full by the end of the tour.

Despite the piles of snow and slush all over, the temps were mild enough that it was not torture to stand around on the sidewalk.

Our guide, Rahim, was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, organized, and clearly enjoys what he's doing.

fabulous tour and tour guides
Sun, Dec 5, 10   11:30 AM Dsteve354 Female Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
Our tour was not a "group" but a mixture of families and individuals, male and female, ages were probably 12-50, from all parts of the country. May not be very entertaining for young children. If you are a "foody", you will love. Our tour guide, Cindy, was really fabulous. Lots of history, good food and fun. Will definitely try one of the other tours the next time we are in town. Have been to NYC on numerous occassions and had never taken an official tour of anything in the city. This was definitely something worth doing.
