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).

Michael was the best tour guide we have ever experienced. His knowledge of the area was priceless.

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 Liked the historical references and architecture lessons.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.

Food for the mind and body!

We now know the ChelseaMarket area pretty darn well..Saw both SaraBeth and the "High Line" on TV the next day!! Our guide conveyed her love for this area, and as true Foodies, we loved seeing the source for the restaurant treats, such as black trumpet mushrooms. The time flew by, and I recommend this to all!

Great Food, Great Tour!

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

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We had some amazing food samples and discovered lots about Greenwich Village, an area we hadn't visited before.

We have recommended this tour to friends.

more tasting

did this on a recommendation of a friend who did the same Greenwich Village tour and she had 2 more food stops than I. Needed another food taste - of something other than pizza or desert.

Cindy kept us on schedule, informed, entertained, and full. What more could you ask? I will recommend it to all my friends visiting NYC.

Very Good

Our guide (Barb from Brooklyn? Beatrice from Brooklyn - anyway she was from Brooklyn) did a number of things that we were impressed with: 1) she gave us some background on the various food shops, and also some history of the Village itself, which was nice and 2) she didn't B.S. her way through something. When she didn't know the answer to a question, she gave you her best guess and made it clear that she wasn't sure. So all in all it was time very well spent. We made a reservation at Palma's (?) for the following night and of course the food was excellent. thank you

Interesting and Yummy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour - it was a stand out during my 10 days in NYC. Our guide (Cindy) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the local produce, vendors and the Greenwich Village area - everyone in the group related well to her. If you are looking to do something just a bit different and less touristy; this is the activity for you (and it was delicious!).

PS I took my husband back to Greenwich Village later that week and did my own gourmet tour with him which he loved - thanks for all the insider tips!!

We were a combo of locals and out of towners with a knowledge of the city, but we learnt things we definetly did not know beforehand.

The guide had great anecdotes that totally added to the walk, the food was very good, well paced as was the walk and the variety of food was perfect.

I would highly recommend the walk to New Yorkers as well as visitors.

Too concentrated on the market and rushed eating
Sat, Sep 23, 06   11:30 AM einzenbe Unspecified 30-39 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I found it a bit boring that the whole tasting was limited to the Market because one gets the feeling that one could do the tour on his own. Also, I found it a bit stressful to eat most of the food while standing (e.g. the croissants and the soup).

However, the guide was very nice and funny. Also the other participants were really nice and the guide managed to bring the group together.

Thanks for three nice hours!
