Great way to spend an afternoon
Sat, May 10, 08   12:00 PM wigglesworth Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This is a great way to spend an afternoon away from the tourist traps of Manhattan and find out about the real NY from a New Yorker's point of view.

Our guide Rahim was superb and whilst we weren't familiar with all the cultural references being from the UK we did know where he was coming from most of the time.

The food was excellent going into places we probably wouldn't normally do just by the look of the outside. We went back to Montes for our final dinner (thanks for the recommendation) and also to some of the great places we went to on the original tour a few years ago - glad to see they are still going strong - John's Pizza and Rocco's particularly.

Excellent New York experience
Fri, Apr 18, 08   12:30 PM wigginton1 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I had a wonderful experience with the tour. The leader of the tour was very comical and knew the history in great detail. The food was delicious and a real neat added bonus to the tour. This tour was one of the highlights to my first visit to New York. I even went back and ate at one of the restaurants on the tour later in the week and it was GREAT. I would suggest this tour to anyone who wants to get the real feel of Greenwich village and learn the history while getting to eat some really delicious food. I loved the tour and would do it again in a heart beat.

Fattening and Fun
Sun, Apr 3, 11   11:00 AM wienerin1 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
A great way to see some of Italian New York you may otherwise miss. Our guide was a bit of a namesdropper - soandso walked this pavement in the 1960s - lots of people that I, in my ignorance , have never heard of...the food was plentiful and good - Cannolis, risotto, pizza, chocolate chip cookie - you get the idea. Pick a sunny day if you can! All in all you won't walk more than about 3 blocks, so calling it a "walking" tour is a bit exaggerated.

Tour was the highlight of our 1st trip to NYC!
Thu, Jul 19, 07   11:00 AM wiederholt Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We loved the food tour with Cindy, she was so much fun to be around and the food tastings were spectacular! The variety of establishments and the rich history shared with us made this the most fun and entertaining part of our trip. We loved the food and came back to the village the next night for dinner and food souveniers. Thanks for providing such a friendly and fun experience. We can't wait to come back and take the other tours! Our trip would not have been as much fun and we would have never known to visit the establishments and walk down the beautiful streets had we not taken this tour. I just can't say enough about how enjoyable Cindy was to be around, her enthusiasm and joy of being in Greenwich Village was catching. Thanks so much for making our 10th anniversary such a blast!

Can't wait to get back!

Wonderful Guide, Great Food, Insider Information
Wed, Jun 10, 09   11:00 AM wickland Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My husband and I took our son, age 18, on this tour. Not only was the food great, the establishments were friendly, Our tour guide was wonderful. Along with the food we received an insider's tour to Greenwich Village. My son was so impressed with Joe's Pizza that we had to ride the subway the next day from midtown Manhattan before our flight left just so he could have some more!

Fun way to eat your way thru the Village!
Sat, Jun 9, 07   3:00 PM whoelse2u Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a great tour and guide in Kurt. Learned great tidbits about West Village, architecture, residents, and above all - restaurants (also went into a few and chatted w/ owners/staff)! We took the 3 pm tour and saw an 8pm show - - it served as dinner and none of us were hungry the rest of the evening. Tried about 3 different desserts, and 5 or 6 non-sweet food items. I would give 5 stars except that I did feel that trying 2 different pizza places was overkill (as mentioned by a previous post) - even tho they were 2 different styles. Both were excellent, but in hindsight it would've been nice to try something different at another of the restaurants instead. We wound up eating at a couple of the suggested restaurants during our visit the rest of the weekend. The recommendations were wonderful.

Excellent Introduction to Chelsea
Sat, Mar 7  10:00 AM whmpam51 Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
My wife and I joined the tour as part of our anniversary trip to NYC. We are glad that we took a friend's recommendation to make a reservation for the food tour. It was most interesting. We had no idea about the variety and the quality of shops at Chelsea Market. Darrel, fellow Texan, was an excellent guide. He was charming, started the tour by memorizing everyone's name, and provided background and historical information injected with humor. Food tastings included a wide range of interesting fare. We highly recommend the tour and recommend Darrel as the tour guide.

A must do on your NYC Trip!
Fri, Dec 14, 12   12:00 PM whittywhit Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We did the tour of the Central Village and Soho areas. It was awesome! The food was very diverse, we got a great history lesson about the neighborhood and our tour guide even pointed out a few of his favorite spots. He showed us the Comedy Cellar which was a great comedy show that we ended up getting tickets for that night! I highly recommend doing this tour and Raheem was an very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide who was also from our hometown area in Colorado!! A definite must on your trip!

Fantastic tour

Our group of 3 mums and 3 daughters (13,16,23) all throughly enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. By the end of the tour we were all stuffed with all the different tasters we were given by the various shops we visited. We all gave it 9 out 10. Missed out on the extra point only because of the weather - cold and very wet.
