Must Taste, Must Do!
Fri, Jul 15, 11   11:30 AM kennethrock Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had never tried anything like this and didn't know quite what to expect. What a delightful experience it was! Our nephew, in NYC for the first time (as a high school graduation present), was utterly impressed, and very taken with Greenwich Village. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable not only about the foods we tasted but also about the history and architecture of the area. We enjoyed it so much that we recommended it to friends who live in NYC, as well as family who visited from Australia recently, and who were going to be in the city. We tasted everything; from Joe's pizza, to nibbles from an Italian restaurant, to a specialty olive oil shop, to a specialty cheese shop, to freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and to freshly made New York style cheesecake. WELL DONE!

Phenomal Cultural food tasting tour!

Much to my surprise I learned a great deal of history about Greenwich Village and the restaurants we visited. All of the food was wonderful and I loved the entire Greenwich area. Our tour guide shared a wealth of knowledge with us and he was very entertaining. I even went back to the Greenwich area the next day to visit the shops and enjoy some Gelato ice cream. I highly recommend this tour.

My husband and I loved the Chelsea Market/Meatpacking food tour! Our guide was friendly, informative, and fun. We will definitely spend more time in this area next time we are back in New York. We have been on the Greenwich tour and look forward to trying another one in the future.

Food & history - a great combo Greenwich Village
Wed, Jul 6, 11   12:00 PM lryder Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We loved our food tour in Greenwich Village! (family of 4 with 12 and 18 yr olds). A little off the beaten track....not as crowded as the 'major attractions'. We tasted the simple (NY pizza and chocolate chip cookies), the eclectic (risotto balls and dates stuffed gorganzola) and the divine (Italian cannoli)!

Bert was our tour guide and was enthusiastic from start to finish. He happily answered all questions about the tour and NYC in general. It was hot but he never faltered. Bert lead us on a multi-faceted tour. Every street was a destination whether we were tasting delicious food, getting the lowdown on neighborhood restaurants and shops of all kinds or learning about the history of Village architecture. It was a highlight of our trip.

Later that evening we went back to one of the neighborhood restaurants that Bert had told us about....there really was a 1700's farmhouse 'out back' annexed to the restaurant courtyard and surrounded by modern buildings!! Who knew. And the food there was superb....so that meal was a highlight of our trip too.

It was a good day in NYC!

Chelsea Market Meatpacking Dist. Tour was great!

In a nutshell, we loved this tour! This is the third Foods of New York Tour we have taken and once again they have hit a home run with the Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Tour. Our guide, Diana, was wonderful. She was both entertaining and extremely well versed in every aspect of the tour, including the history and cultural aspects of the market and the surrounding Meatpacking area. We sampled foods from a wide variety of food shops and restaurants in and around the Chelsea Market -- all of which were absolutely delicious! To top the great food off, we gained facinating insights into the development of the businesses, artwork and architecture in the marketplace and the surrounding area.

Fantastic Time

Bari was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable not only about the neighborhood but about all the food we ate. She consistently listed off ingredients to all the dishes we had and gave us a great concept of the history behind everything. She was very good at keeping the group together, keeping track of everyone, and had a real passion for the Village. Thanks for everything!

What a wonderful way to spend several hours in New York. We have always loved Greenwich Village! Not only did we learn a lot of historical facts but we also ate the neighborhood! It was a delightful part of our visit.

Thank you!

Three adult family members had a wonderful time.

We thought our guide was very well informed, her voice projected well [which was important because there is a lot of background noise], and enthusiastic. We got a real sense of the West Village scene, history, culture and food. The venues were fun to visit and the provided food was varied and delicious. We all felt it was time well spent and a reasonable value. I think the narrative would be a little too long and detailed for young children.

Sensational

From the first 2 minutes when our guide, Kirk, had memorised 12 participants names and their country of origin, (as well as the 4 people - and their country of origin - WHO HADN'T EVEN ARRIVED!!!), he had us "eating" out of his hand. His enthusiasm was infectious, his local and food knowledge extraordinary, and his delivery flawless. A true professional. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in this area of New York - the three hours flew by and we all wanted more!

After Prom Restaurant Tour
Sun, Jun 5, 11   11:00 AM Thadeus1951 Unspecified Unspecified Local Group of Friends
The kids in my daughter's prom group wanted to go to NYC for the day after prom. One of the planned activities was the Chelsea Tasting Tour. The kids had a great time. They raved about their tour guide and the tastings they received. It was a wonderful way to start their day in the city. Even though they attended other events while in the city, the Chelsea Tasting Tour was the high-light of their day. Thank you for your time and efforts.
