This is my second food tour in NY and I am looking forward to the next one. Our tour guide Kurt was great. He had lots of information, and his delivery was flawless. I was impressed that he remembered everyone's name on the tour. We ate our way through Greenwich Village, and I loved every bite.

It was a hot day but we still enjoyed all the food tastings and the excellent information provided by our tour guide, Bert. We have only positive comments - good food selection, useful information about other interesting places in the neighborhood, architecture and history and generally just a fun experience. We went back to a couple of places to buy products and returned for a drink at another place we toured. Highly recommend Bert - enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable of the neighborhood and the food.

This was my second tour, the first was a tour of the West Village last year. This time we went with our two adult children and did the Nolita/SoHo tour. My kids are 22 & 19 and both enjoyed themselves and said they would definitely do it again. We were in nyc 3 days and they asked why I didn't book one of these tours for each day.

Our tour leader was Annie, and she did an awesome job. I can't wait to go to nyc again and try the Chinatown tour.

Our host, Kirk (Curt?) was amazing. Knowledgeable, personable and fun. Wished I'd have done it sooner. We'll try another tour next time we're in the city.

This was an interesting way to get to know a bit of history about the Village and to get a glimpse of its many offerings. Food tastings were extremely rich, each and every one of them. People who put tour together must have had iron stomachs. Highlight of tour was olive oil shop - very educational. Cindy, the tour guide was educated about the area, but was condescending to one of the women on the tour and made some politically incorrect comments that made me very uncomfortable. As tour guides go, she was fair at best.

Having been on about 5 food tours and having repeated several, I feel qualified to comment!

Our guide was great - no issues there.

The three in my group all agreed that the food samples, while good enough, were all dough/bread-based or heavy. There were two sandwiches+ethnic dough-based (name?)+pizza+falafel+dessert + others (I can't remember). While most were tasty, the sampling was just too heavy. BEST = grilled cheese sandwich; not-so-terrific = pizza tasted like cardboard (towards end of tour).

More thought should be given to the types of samples - that's not easy, I know, but your clients should be able to expect variety.

Nevertheless, I remain a fan and, in fact, am signed-up for the newest tour next week :)

Soon ~

We just returned from NYC for a quick 3-night anniverary weekend, and this food tour was one of the highlights of the trip. Our tour guide, Sefra (sp?), was AWESOME! She had just the right mix of humor and information to keep us engaged the entire time. The tour itself exceeded our expectations, and we plan to do another tour with this company next time we are in the city.

This tour truly delivers..delicious food, little-known historical facts, mingling with the locals, and great exercise to top it off! Our guide Cindy was first class, and her energy was contagious. She knows her stuff and goes the extra mile to make sure her guests get the most from their experience. If you enjoy good food, and want a real New York experience, take this tour. You will be glad that you did.

My friends & I just returned from our girls trip & our first & favorite activity was the Greenwich Village Food & Culture Tour led by Bert! I was looking for a different activity for my group because each of us has been to NYC before & this tour was perfect for us. We all felt that it was an exceptional value. Our tour began at 11 am & ended at 2pm. Our group of 5 made the number of participants 17, however, due to Bert's finesse, we felt as if we were the only people on the tour! Bert has a wonderful knowledge of the village & great relationships with the small businesses we had the pleasure to visit. Our tour was "Food & Culture" & Bert was a pro at inserting bits of history, architecture & trivia. But boy did we taste! I think we had 8 samples of food & it was MORE than enough for lunch. Our samples included: pizza from Joe's, olive oil from O & Co, baquette from Amy's, Macaroni & Cheese from Home, hot cookie from (can't remember), trio of appetizers from a great Italian place artichoke with shaved parmesan, fried polenta with marinara, gorgonzola stuffed & Bacon wrapped date, rice ball from quaint deli & 3 types of cheese from Murray's, plus a mini canoli. We were SO stuffed but pleased that we got to try so many different tastes of this wonderful neighborhood. While the tour is 3 hours, Bert led at a leisurely pace. To sum this experience up, all we can say is that it was a 5 star experience & more than worth the price. If you are ready for a different NYC experience, give one of these tours a try! You won't regret it:). I'm planning another trip for November & already looking at their other tours because we loved this one so much!

Great historical information about an area in NYC.

A great way to find out information about a specific area in New York. If we hadn't done this tour, we wouldn't have found out about all the different places to go. New York is so much more than just the big sights, and for me the different village locations downtown are the best parts. Combine that with food and what more could you want?!
