My second time on this tour - still fabulous!
Sat, Feb 28  11:00 AM johnspam Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Unspecified
My first tour was in 2000 and I loved the experience so much that I just had to return! First - our tour guide MARIE was terrific! Marie is the source of everything amazing about the West Village from food, to history, to architecture and the total feel of the neighborhood. And she was incredibly entertaining! And she knows everyone along the way - it was like being with the mayor of the West Village! The stops along the way offered delicious food - at every single stop - and attentive shop keepers and staff that truly loved having our group tasting their food offerings! The three hours flew by -- and we enjoyed so many wonderful tastings that we truly did not need to find any more food! I will most definitely take the tour again! Thanks Marie!

A great time despite the cold

Though the weather was pretty awful (vy cold and windy) the tour guide did a great job of doing as much as possible indoors and even making a couple of detours that proved to be really interesting and informative. The guide was very knowledgeable and very approachable and the group of people were all very friendly (there was even a couple who new Village residents). Though I had been to the Village a couple of times on my own, it was great to have a tour that really explained some of the history of the neighbourhood and pointed out places not to be missed. Feel well armed to head back on my own to return to some of the great restaurants and businesses we visited. I would highly recommend the tour as a great orientation to one of NYC's best neighbourhoods.

And, incidentally, the price of the tour is a bargain considering the expertise of the tour guide and the quality of the food you get during the 3+ hours.

My husband & I really enjoyed this great tour of Greenwich Village. Bert our tour guide was so knowledgeable & entertaining. The 3 hrs just flew by!! The tour included a variety of foods from the neighborhood & wonderful visits to each establishment. Everyone was so friendly & welcoming. We also really enjoyed learning not only various historical aspects of the Viillage but also contemporary information. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting NYC!!!

Better than expected

This tour was outstanding. The guide for this specific tour is not only knowledgeable but has a great sense of humor, talkative, engaging and open for discussion. The tour has a wide range of tastings. It is well rounded. I would give this tour an A+! highly recommend. Despite being three hours it was well spread out from the inside and the outside with time to rest at time.

The group tour leader Marie, was wonderful! It was cold and raining and she did everything she could to get us inside and warm. The tour is only maybe 2-3 blocks, but it was great. She really knows the neighborhood, and the food is amazing. I would recommend this tour!

Our tour guide (I don't recall her name unfortunately) was great, funny and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the foods we sampled and the history of the area - which was very interesting since I had never toured Greenwich Village before.

Lots of tastings!

Great tour, the only downside being excessive quiz about the prices for the properties. We now remember the price of an apartment in the Village, not the taste or ingredients in the food.

Fantastic tour!

I highly recommend doing a food tour as one of your "must do's" in New York City! We are from Canada and this was our 3rd trip to the big apple and the food tour is always a highlight! Our tour guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and the food was out of this world! ☺

We loved Daryl, great personality and knowledge of the meat packing district and Chelsea food market. This is a must do if you like food and a bit of history.

So humor me......

We truly enjoyed our walking tour with Host Diana. She has Personal residence-history within the tour neighborhood. She was full of facts from past and present........a REAL walking People Magazine. Her TIDBITS were spoken in good timing so there was not 'stand-around-time' waiting for the previous tour to clear out. She was not "reciting" a learned script but what came forth was a genuine love for the area. The food was exceptionally AMAZING !.... HOT !!....FILLING !!! I had taken the Greenwich tour 10 yrs ago with another guide. There were a few new venues ; better than 10 yrs ago!! BE SURE TO GO BACK TO THE OLIVE OIL SHOP to get discounted oils and Balsalmic Vinegar. We forgot to do that and remembered the next morning :( We left with a solid picture of life "back when", and yes, tastebuds fulfilled AND bellies full. I am female and satiety was spoken by the men-folk by the end of the 5th place. We still had the cheese shop and desert to go. Definitely a must do.
