Absolutely delightful, informative, fun, interesting and simply enjoyable. I'd do another one in a nano second. If you want a real intimate, detailed and fascinating insight into some of the history of NY's neighbourhoods. This is for you.

My wife and I received tickets to this tour as a gift. Hesitant at first, one because we aren't fans of guided tours, and two, we felt we didn't need somebody to walk us through Greenwich Village... but glad we went because it was really a great experience. Our tour guide was incredibly friendly, outgoing, and courteous. Our tour was... More

This was a nice tour to the neighbourhood of Greenwich Village and the different restaurants. There were a lot of food (for us at least), we had problems managing to eat everything at the end but it was really good tasting!

We took this tour with Bert James on 4/11/14 and loved it. Not only did he include masses of historical facts, but also had a vast food knowledge. (And, believe me, I know quite a bit also, and so am a tough audience.) He was great and we all learned lots. We all really liked the food places with their... More

My high school bestie and I were looking to spend some quality time together - we both love great food, history, and wandering around, so this seemed like the perfect fit. We took the "original Greenwich Village" tour, and even though it was a cold, rainy day, we had a fantastic time. Our tour guide, Cindy, made all the difference... More

Took the Greenwich Village tour and loved it so when I heard of a tour of Chinatown well I knew I just had to go. This time my guide was Bert (as he said "you know like Bert of Bert and Ernie") I knew I was going to like this guy! It was a beautiful day and the food. Oh... More

We had not been to Greenwich before and had a really enjoyable time sampling so many different treats and learning all about the history of the area. Our guide (whose name I can't remember!) was fabulous. She shared so many interesting facts with us and answered every tricky question we posed. The 3 hours flew, with a couple of 'sit... More

Had an great Greenwich tour with Bert this past Monday. I learned a lot about the history of Greenwich as well as how the restaurants and shops molded the community and neighborhood history. Bert was a gracious, engaging, funny and interesting guide. He had a good sense of humor and worked with the group really well. He really shared personal... More

This was my second Foods of New York Tour. It was just as wonderful as m first… (Chelsea and Meat Packing Distric)t. Our guide, Carrie, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and really looked out for us… (we were there in rain) -- got us inside or under canopies. The information that she gave us about the area was interesting and presented in... More
