My group of six consisted of four "repeat tourists' from Texas in our 50's, plus my daughter(age 25), who lives on 1st avenue in east village and her boyfriend(26y.o.), who lives in the west village. They thought it would "possibly" be interesting. Well, they were overwhelmed as were the rest of us. As tourists, it was fun for us to see all the streets and shops and restaurants('tasting' is accurate I am sure, but we felt like we more than tasted...we were 'fed')--. We didn't expect such a historical perspective--Ed really made us 'see' NY from the days of the origin of this area. As the "locals", my daughter and her boyfriend couldn't wait to go back and tell their friends about this cheese shop, this restaurant, this club....I am a travel agent and will either give this tour as a gift to my clients or tell them it is a must they must include in their visit to NYC. Tell everyone to get out of midtown; come see real NY.

This is a fun way to spend an afternoon very interesting facts and history are imparted and our guide had lived in the neighborhood for years. I found him very genuine as people on the street passed by they all knew our guide by name. The food is okay don't expect anything gourmet (pizzas/breads/cheeses). I live in New York and know the neighborhood so I know most of the stores we stopped by but I still managed to discover one new store that I will return to. It was a lovely afternoon.

My sister and our adult daughters took this Greenwich Village Food tour and found it to be wonderful. The weather happened to be perfect and the 3 hour walk around the Village was both informative and fun. Our leader, Ed, was great at his job and gave us lots of information about the area. The food "tastes" were scrumptious and more than a taste. The samples truly were enough for lunch. We would highly recommend this tour.

This was a fun tour! I liked everything that i sampled, very unique foods!!! Tour guide, Diane, was very informative and knew what she was talking about, but she was very much a pushy new-yorker, sometimes very anoying and other times beneficial on the streets of NY!!! Very fun, and adventerous!!!!!

After seeing Emeril trot on down to the Chelsea market for the umpteenth time, I could no longer resist having a look around. Found out about this tour online, hey why not? Nice way to pass an afternoon. Cindy was our guide, lots of fun and very savvy. Went back to the Market afterwards to shop for restaurant quality fruit, veg, meat, fish, dairy (don't miss Ronnybrook Farms - creamline milk - yum), desserts. This market has it all. Enjoy! I recommend bringing an insulated bag (mine came in handy). I'll be back.

I have been on the Greenwich Village tour (4 years ago) as well as the Chelsea Market tour (this weekend) and they are both thorough, entertaining and interesting. Both of our tour guides were very knowledgeable and funny- and everyone in the group was impressed.

What I thought was exceptional, one member of the group was allergic to shellfish, so when we were at the Lobster place, they gave him a nice loaf of artesian bread. Another guest was a vegan, so she received eggplant parm in place of some meat samples. This was very courteous on their part and well planned- as the host was ready with the food substitutions and presented them when the group was eating the scheduled samples.

This is a great way to see the city and to learn about its history and I highly recommend this company's tours.

I take a tour every time I go to NYC...once a month or so....with goal of getting to neighborhoods off the beaten tourist path. I enjoyed the tour leader and the Chelsea Market area, will definetely go back for to the area on my next trip to the City.

Underwhelmed--But Go See For Yourself

We expected to walk more and explore both the Village and SoHo. Our village tour focused mostly on MacDougal street and immediate environs and the SoHo part I think was when we crossed Houston street and walked couple short streets like Sullivan. We wanted to see more of the area and actually walk--there were so many streets to explore! After the tour we were able to walk on our own so the tour did help with our sense of direction. The food was OK at best save for a nice little morsel of smoked food. One Italian store in particular was spoken highly of and we went inside but we didn't get any food. People wanted to stop and buy something but we had to move on. I appreciated the tidbits of information we were offered about the area. I would advise to stay close to the leader so that you can hear everything, as sometimes the cars and trucks were louder than the voice. It was an interesting outing, and it seemed that most people loved it. However, don't be surprised if you want to stop and have lunch after the outing is over.

A very informative and enjoyable day--good food

My 4 grown daughters and I feel we experienced Greenwich Village with this tour. The food was varied and excellent--so happy to have a chance to sit sometimes. Learnining about some of the restaurants was worthwhile, as they are unique to the area. Hearing about the history of the area was helpful, but just too long. Michael, our guide, had so much info and tried to impart as much as possible to us in an interesting manner. However, the tour was 3 1/2 hours long--just too long to focus. I believe 2 1/2 hours should be the max. I would like to go back there some day.

Yummy, often non-conventional tastings. Introduces you to unique shops and restaurants that you'd never discover on your own. Highly recommended for foodies and non-foodies alike!
