Went on this tour twice! The first time was with a college reunion girlfriend weekend and our tour guide was Bert. He was so knowledgeable about the architecture and history of the Village - learned lots! Two weeks later I was with my husband visiting my son in Manhattan and liked it so much, I booked it again!

The tour was really nice and started in an excellent Italian cheese shop. We tasted a great variety of tasty food and all the dishes were connected to the neighborhood. After the tour we were completely stuffed. Next to information about the food, we also heard a lot about the neighborhood the people who live there. Although we really enjoyed... More

I have had been fortunate enough to attend four of the tours offered by this great company, and would highly recommend any of them. You can view my previous review of the Chinatown tour. Unfortunately, I haven't been as diligent in posting reviews of the other three tours. All of the guides are personable and knowledgeable, and the food is... More

Loved the food and culture walking tour around Greenwich Village with tour guide Bert in December 2014. Had nine food stops with yummy tasters at every stop. All of the stops were close by so there wasn’t a lot of walking. Bert was a font of knowledge on the history and architecture of the district and told stories about the... More

We had a great time with our guide Robin! We loved it all - places she showed us, food we ate and her unforgettable sense of humor. Wheter you are foodie or not, you are going to have a ball.

Did the 3-4 hour walking/bus Best of Brooklyn food and culture tour with Laurie as our guide. Excellent! Great to hear about the history and culture of areas of lower Manhattan before heading off to Brooklyn, an area most tourists I suspect don't bother to visit. Food from different ethnicities with a good variety and overall good quality; My favourite... More

Took this tour with my niece and kids (12 and 9) - we all enjoyed it and want to do another tour with this company. The food was great, our guide (Sephrah) was wonderful - she was funny and informative. She included everyone and I think she made everyone feel part of the group. The tour was a great way... More

Each year we've done a new Foods of New York Tour - Chinatown, Greenwich Village, and now Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District. Another great trip - informative, funny, great chat with tour guide (Darryl) and fellow customers. Great tasting. Now we feel very comfortable going back to the area. Wonder which tour we'll do next year.

Thanks for the great review patersa! We're so honored that you keep coming back to us for your touring pleasure. We wouldn't have been here for over 15 years with out such great loyal customers like yourself. You still have to try our Heart of the Village tour or the Nolita/Noho tour, which does fill up quickly. Please come back... More

We both really enjoyed all the testings and aromas present in the shops. The day was wet but that did not slow us down, what a fun way to explore the Village!

Staying in West Village

Neighborhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
