A wonderful outing

This was a wonderful way to learn of the architecture, geography, culture and especially the local cuisine. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgable, friendly and professional. The six tastings provided a wonderful cross-section of foods available in this Greenwich village neighborhood. At the top of the list were Havana and LaPalma where we hope to return for an evening of dining. We were blessed with wonderful weather for the tour, which, I'm sure helps with the overall impression. Still, we went back the next day, which was gloomy and wet, and stopped at Murray's, Rocco's and Fiacco's, filling out trunk for the ride home. Loved the tour, would recommend to anyone (and already have). We look forward to trying another tour in a different neighborhood.

Loved the tour

I enjoyed the tour very much. The only complaint I would have was that when the tour was over I couldn't find X&O sauce! I tried a Chinese grocery store but that was impossible.

Will definately take another tour.

One of the best things we did in New York!

Our guide Cindy was witty and funny and knew her stuff! We learnt heaps of fun stuff and our bellies ended up full of some amazing authentic Village treats. We will definitely take more Foods of NY tours when we come back next year.

DO THIS TOUR!!!!!!

Great guide, terrific food, nothing too scary

We are adventurous eaters who wanted to be somewhat challenged and exposed to new foods. The food we had was delicious, but not as challenging as we had hoped. Given that, I can cheerfully say that more cautious eaters will find this tour just about right for them. The guide did a great job of keeping everything on track, organized, and fun, including lots of information about the history of Chinatown and tidbits about places we might want to go back to (we did go back the next day and had even more great food). If you're afraid of sea cucumber with shrimp seed, don't worry -- you won't get it on this tour. You'll get a delicious Peking duck, some savory sea-influenced dishes, and fresh greens eaten sitting down at a couple of good places, and then add in some really fun snacks from sidewalk shops. Thanks to Todd and Rakim for a fine job. Next time, we'll engage you privately and ask for the really authentic, scary stuff!

Discover The Village in a different way
Thu, Apr 1, 10   11:00 AM swissdevil Unspecified Unspecified International Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
It was my 8th trip to NY from Switzerland, so I know the city pretty well. But that was the first time I've taken such a tour. It was really interesting to discover Greenwich Village while walking and eating some local specialties during the 3-hours tour with an enthusiastic guide. If I had to say something negative, it would be the fact that Amercian people insist too much on the 15% to 20% tip you "have to" give, what is not so common in Europe. But I would definitely recommend the tour, as long as you understand english pretty well...

Fun, filling and educational
Tue, Mar 9, 10   11:30 AM soultrain165 Unspecified 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
Our tour guide was Kurt who was delightful. He had an extensive knowledge of the area and it's history. Every time we ate it was delicious and left me with a great impression of the establishment that will certainly lead me to future visits. The tour was very educational and provided an unforgettable element. My girlfriend and I look forward to participating in the other available tours and have reccomended the Greenwich tour to a number of friends already. This tour is great for a day out in the city or for restaurant research purposes as we fully intend to revist those restaurants shown on the tour. My first impression of the price seemed lofty however the 3 hour tour provides a great amount of entertainment and will not leave you hungry.

Took the Greenwich Village Tour in 2005 and loved it. Wondered if this might just be a straight repeat, but still felt it was worth going. We were delighted to find both old favorites and new places to see on the current tour. Marie, our guide, was so good.

We've also previously taken the Chelsea Market and Central Village/SoHo tours, and look forward to repeating those also!

What a fun tour. Our tour guide, Cindy, seemed to know everything about the Village.

The food was wonderful. We could have spent the whole day there if not for the weather. Every visitor to New York should take this tour!

Loved the mix of NY history and wonderful food
Fri, Jan 22, 10   12:00 PM janahumleker Unspecified Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Four of us had five days in New York, and we hadn't been for quite a few years. Collectively we love cities, love to know about the areas we are visiting, enjoy personal tours and love to try different foods. This tour was the perfect mix of everything - - the food fun and very appealing, the guide personable, helpful and interesting. We would do this again!

Fun & enlightening experience - highly recommended
Sun, Jan 10, 10   11:00 AM Maryg315 Unspecified Unspecified Combination Group of Friends
We participated in the Greenwich Village Tour in early January. Our guide was a local resident of the area, and her passion for the neighborhood, its local merchants, and its historic significance was evident and contagious. The food tastings were plentiful, enough for a meal, but better than that, they were of exceptional quality and often unique to the restaurant or shop visited --- that allowed the group to have tasting experiences we likely would not have discovered on our own. The restaurant & shop owners/staff were all extremely accommodating --- we purchased items from some that day, and will absolutely return for additional dining & shopping experiences in this part of the city. The pace of the tour was good, the tour length was fine (even though it was chilly, the 3 hours actually seemed to fly by), and the variety kept everyone's interest. All in all, a terrific experience and an excellent value. We will take advantage of other tours this company offers.

Excellent experience! Would do it again....

We were first timers to New York and found it both informative culturally / historically and a great way to try before you buy when it comes to the cafes and restaurants in the village.

Next time we come, we are going to stay in this area rather than in Times Square as it is packed with the restaurants and cafes we love.

Susan, our guide, was excellent. She is a lifetime New Yorker and had a wealth of information about the history and culture of the area and the food that relates to it.

We would definitely recommend this as a must do experience for food lovers.
