Wonderful Experience

My college age daughter and I went on this tour along with a couple of friends.

What a great way to spend a few hours with family and friends. The food was good, the tour of the village was outstanding and the places we visited were all very friendly and hospitable. We will definitely go back to several of them for lunch or dinner.

At the end of it all we could not believe how much we had actually eaten over the few hours we were walking.

Thank you for a great tour experience.

The tour was well organized, our tour guide was knowledgeable and organized. The food we tasted was very good. I would go back to the area for some of the foods on future trips.

Our guide, Kurt, led us on an educational, sensory-delighting, entertaining insider's view of the Chelsea Market and surrounding area.

We highly recommend the tour!

I took the Chelsea Market tour with my daughter-in-law and we both really enjoyed it. The food sampling was great and filling. No need for lunch although we did return to the market for some take home items of the food we sampled. Curt (with a C), our guide, was knowledgeable as well as entertaining! We learned some fun and fascinating history of the area on our walking portion of the tour as well as some great ideas for dining. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting NYC. I am coming back in the summer and will defiantly do another food tour....a great way to get a "taste" of the city!

Our group of four had a very enjoyable time on the food tour. We enjoyed all of the food selections and learning about the history and culture of Greenwich Village. We highly recommend this tour. We plan on returning and participating in one of the other tours offered.

We took the tour on one of the coldest days of the year (something like minus 8 - without allowing for the wind-chill factor), yet still had a great time.

The food-tasting element is more low-key than expected (a couple of bits of pizza, a rice ball, an Italian pastry and some cheese) but the informative, enthusiastic and entertaining style of our guide (Michael) - covering architecture, history and local anecdote as well as food - made it a tour to remember.

We were a group of four from London and while we sometimes shivered in the biting New York temperatures (making London seem almost balmy by comparison), this was a highlight of our trip.

Well worth sampling - but try to pick a warm day!

My family thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Your choices of products was on target. Salt is a little sketchy, but Curt made it very entertaining.

We loved it !

This tour was absolutely fabulous! My family and I were captivated the entire time by both the history of the area as presented by our guide and the food as prepared by the vendors. Being from New York it is so interesting to learn the stories of the neighborhoods of the city that everyone has heard of, but few really know. As an added note, our guide Kurt was hilarious and entertaining every step of the way...he is one of the funniest people on the planet.

Wonderful experience

Kurt was our tour guide and he was enthusiastic and interesting. We took this tour to familiarize ourselves with the West Village area but we enjoyed it more than we could ever have guessed. The food was good and I particularly enjoyed the comments about the architecture and history. We enjoyed it so much that we related our experience to our dinner companions and they all want to take the tour now. The most important thing to me is that, now, when I return to the W. Village, I will feel like I know where I am going and what I am doing. Thanks for a great tour!

liked so much the first time, went again

I first went on this tour a couple years ago with a friend from Manhatten. I enjoyed it so much that I recently went again with a friend unfamiliar with Greenwich Village. I enjoyed it all over. My only slight criticism is that perhaps limiting the group to 10 would be more comfortable. (We were 15).

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The walk was just enough to help us appreciate the food and not too strenuous. Liked the historical references and architecture lessons. The food was generous and a good variety of snacks, desserts, and heartier fare like pizza. Amy was a great tour guide.

Cindy knew a whole lot about the Village (both current and historically) and seemed to be well known and well liked by those in the community. Lots of sightseeing and discussion between the food tastings. Overall, we tried 2 different (half-slice sized) types of pizza, a wonderful rice ball from the Italian market, a delicious combined cheese, meat and bread sampler from Murray's, Amy's and the Italian market, the best cannoli we ever had at Rocco's and an "opera cake" at a Northern Italian bakery next to Rocco's. Would love to have a few more samples added to the tour, since it is truly a food tasting tour first and lasted over 3 hours, but we had a great time overall and hope to come back and do another tour (Chelsea/MePa) in the future
