Our tour guide was very enthusastic and we had a wonderful time. We are a group of friends, who get together once a month to do something special, and we cannot wait until next year to book another food tour. Thank you for a great experience!

Well worth the time and money

It was a lovely way to meet people in a small group (15 or so), to stroll the quaint and charming streets learning about the history, the architecture and the famous members of the Beat Generation who inhabited Greenwich Village, and to taste the delicious foods available in the neighbourhood. The list of excellent, affordable restaurants will be of great help the next time I visit N.Y. It was also helpful to know about the affordable off-off-Broadway shows performed there. In all, a lovely way to spend three hours.

Need to change some menu to showcast more.....
Sat, Aug 20, 11   12:30 PM zoetravel Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
First of all, I wanted to say we visited a total of 8 places while in the ad you only listed 6. I would suggest to change the ad. Secondly, nearly 1.5 hours walking did kill your feet. We had food in the first 45 mins in 3 places and last 45 mins in 4. I would suggest to make a slightly adjustment for the walking route. Since we left around lunch hour, so it's better we can have more food before we head to a 1.5 hours walking tour.

Overall, our tour guide Dianna is a very pleasant person. As for the food, the first sandwish in Focacceria Italian Eatery was not too impressive. Masala Times (Indian Street Food) made me feel happy and look forward for our next taste. Unfortunately the noodle in the Monte's Homestyle Italian Restaurant disappointed me again. It's a shame althought this restaurant might have a wonderful history but If they can't showcase their food well, visitors will not go back. I like the atmosphere of Cuba Restaurant. Their food was not bad I liked the yuka especially. But again, did those food really showcast Cuban culture? I really don't think so. We also need more time so we could finish the drink we ordered here. The smoke mozzarella and sundried tomata in Joe's Dairy/Cheese Shop was memorable. Although we didn't get a change to get inside. Chocolate pear tart in Once Upon a Tart Bakery/Cafe was just okay. So overall, food experience I will only give a 3.5, considering the money we spent was mainly for that. However the highlight for the day were the sandwich in Masala Times and smoke mozzarella/sundried tomato in Joe's Dairy/Cheese Shop, I will give them both a 5. To rate this food and cultural tour, I will give it a 4. Lastly, I also wanted to add the after tour survey was a great tool. It will help those restautants to change their menus so they can grow their business better......

The best food tour with the very best tour guide

We loved our Greenwich food tour with Sephra. She was so knowledgable about the culinary arts, the neighborhood and made the tour so much more enjoyable. The selection of food was great and so filling. I couldn't believe how much food we ate in a few hours. The walk was reasonable with lots of stops to rest and/or go to the restroom. Perfect tour!

Our guide Barri was outstanding. She was had numerous, interesting facts and anecdotes about the area. The food choices were outstanding....a very nice mix of edibles....just enough to satisfy. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone touring NYC.

Great Guide-Mediocre food

We really enjoyed our guide,Sam-he was funny and made us all feel comfortable-the food was just so-so with the exception of the lobster bisque-which was fabulous- also we started wiht a cookie -not a good idea-the biscuits were awful-cold and the jam was like from t he supermarket- a hot roll with some fancy butter would be a better option

informative historically and food is good.

Being my first time in New York, it was quite an experience. The tour was quite informative in the history of food in this neighborhood and the culture of the place. The food was excellent. I wish we could enter each restaurant and look at the menus. The timing of the food sampling was a little off I think. We tasted two right away at the start of the tour then went for hours without anything. Then at the end, we tasted four items pretty much consecutively. If the food tasting could be spread out more evenly, that would be nice.

Anyone interested in food and cultures that has more than a couple days in New York should make this tour a priority.

myself and a friend came on the greenwich village tour, after a friend recommended it. we had a great time, and it was very worthwhile doing, not only to sample some great food but to listen to the guides' (Kurt) extensive knowledge on food and the general area.

Great Even For Local New Yorkers
Sun, Oct 22, 06   11:00 AM Zjantelle Female 30-39 Local Group of Friends
The Greenwich Village food tour was great. Our tour guide was not only full of knowledge, but she was friendly and enthusiastically bubbly making us laugh the whole three hours. The three hours whiz by. My husband is a local new yorker and vehemently opposed to tours. We were invited by another couple and i made him go. He loved it. He learned so many things about New York that he did not know before. My family is coming to visit from Australia at the end of the year, and i am definitely going to book them on the tour. Just make sure that if you do the tour in the colder months, that you rug up. Most of the time you are walking outside and if its cold, you really feel it. Oh, the food you taste is also awesome - and you get the opportunity to grab a beer along the way. Enjoy!

Our tour guide Curt really made the tour an entertaining experience. Loved the food tasting stops and the background insights to the shops. This was my second time on the tour and I wanted my family from Florida to experience it.

Interesting tour
Sat, Apr 18  1:00 PM zincis Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We booked the tour because of many positive reviews on TripAdvisor.

It was interesting, our guide very entusiastic and quite knowlegable .Though the whole thing seemed a little industrial conveyor-like. Many tours with just 30 min interval; it seemed somewhat over-exploited.
