Greg is an excellent guide and has a huge passion for the city (and good food). The tour is already great as it is, but you can also make it better by asking questions which Greg will definitely answer. An excellent way to spend an afternoon - definitely recommended for any

Hi Heinrich, I enjoyed strolling NYC's East Village and sharing Pierogi, kielbasa and yummy piaczki (Donuts). I'm always glad to share these delectable dishes while sharing history. Hope to see you soon and thanks for walking and the great review!

We are New Yorkers and always struggle for fun activities to do with our teenagers that we will all enjoy. The Pierogi tour was excellent. Delicious nibbles and we learned many new things about the East Village that at the very least will help us win the next trivia night :)!

Hi Stephen I’m glad you enjoyed the pirogi walk and all of it yummy samples. Because we were a party of two I was able to tailor the walk and share with you some historical rock ‘n’ roll spots in the East Village. Thank you for walking with me again and seeking me out all the way from down under. Happy 2020. Greg

Greg spoke Polish and knew a lot of people in the neighborhood. A good variety of foods and cultures and historical facts while walking around the neighborhood. Greg showed a lot of enthusiasm for his subjects and was engaging and generous. Unique tour. Recommended.

Greg is lovely and enthusiastic. My teenage son and I enjoyed our two hours and noticed things we probably would never have seen despite walking the streets often. But don’t expect a tour about either pierogis or East European history in the East Village! It was more

Hi Patricia, As the Pierogi Walk website indicates, this walk is more than pierogi samples and the Eastern European East Village experience. I'm happy you and your son enjoyed: Polish apple cake, rugelach, authentic chocolate and vanilla egg creams, Ukrainian Jelly donuts, number-one-Zagat – rated challah, stuffed cabbage and the fresh-made, buttery potato pierogi. I hope you received my follow-up email answering your great east village New Amsterdam history questions.
