My husband, teenage son and daughter, and I were visiting NY from Australia over the new year prior. Naturally it was very cold in NY but we attended the tour anyway, as it had been highly recommended by a friend in Sydney, and also because I'd pre-booked and paid. We weren't disappointed. Our host was amazingly warm and friendly, and... More

Even walking in a cold downpour for the whole tour we could not have enjoyed the tour anymore. Our tour guide was excellent, beyond knowledgable and so kind and considerate of everyone wants. Ou guide was a real pro and she loves her job, the company and her boss and it shows. If this tour is full, grab another one... More

Did the heart of the village tour in December, it was a miserable wet day but didn't dampen the spirit of our guide Susan, who loves her local area and had lots of knowledge to share. Food stops were much closer together than I expected but I enjoyed everything. We went back to visit two of the restaurants during our... More

The food and drinks were all really good and our guide Diana was great all the way. We have done several food tours before in different parts of the world. This experience is among the very best....

My friend and I were treated royally by Marie, our tour guide, and the many fabulous shops and restaurants who lavished us with their culinary delights. The food tastings were delicious and by the end of the tour, we were quite full and extremely delighted with the day's event. Marie was so delightful, enthusiastic and very well informed. We really... More

I went on the original Greenwich Village food tour with Marie and had a blast, even though my friends didn't come with AND it poured the whole time. We learned about not only how the food we tasted is prepared, but the history of the shops and the families who owned them, the OFF Off Broadway theater scene, and the... More

My grandson (18) and I took the food tour on a freezing cold January Saturday. It was his Christmas gift to me. We began at Murray's Cheese Shop and made nine stops for the most delicious samples of mostly Italian foods. Our guide, Marie, was full of knowledge, both about food and about the area. She tried very hard to... More

It was a wet and miserable day which was made much better as we were guided around Greenwich Villiage with Bert. Bert was a great knowledgeable guide who kept us laughing all the way. The food was delicious and plenty of it too. I was still full at dinner! Great to hear about the neighbourhood and all the local history... More
