“Foods of Greenwich Village Walking Tour”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

For our first visit to NYC we took this walking tour of famous landmarks and foods of Little Italy and Greenwich Village. Robin was our tour guide and was great. She gave a great history of the neighborhood and people who live there and the architecture of the buildings. During the tour there were tastings from 9 stops along the way, all very delicious. Great way to learn about the city and special restaurants, specialty markets and bakeries from a local perspective. Definitely worth the money.

“Wonderful way to explore the West Village”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I took the Original Greenwich Village food tasting and culture tour yesterday with 3 teenagers. I had hoped to find a fun and educational activity that we would all enjoy, and the tour succeeded in meeting those goals. All 4 of us had a great time learning about the history of the West Village, eating delicious (and plentiful amounts of) food, and spending a beautiful afternoon (mostly) outside. Our favorite stops were Palma's Restaurant, Murray's Cheese Shop, and Milk & Cookies.
Our guide, Robin, was fun, informative, and energetic. At the end of the tour, it felt like we had spent the afternoon with a friend.

“Greenwich Village Food Tour- a great experience”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

My family and I went on the Greenwich Village Food tour this week and had a great experience. Robin was our tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. We sampled several different types of foods, including cheese from Murray's cheese shop, NY style pizza from Joe's Pizza, gelato from Dolce Gelateria, olive and truffle oil samples from O & Co, eggplant rollatini from Rafele, and a lot more. It was a great value for the price of the tour, and definitely one of the highlights of our stay in NYC.

“Chelsea Market Food Tour”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This was my first food tour and had a fantastic time!! Did the Chelsea Market and Meat Packing District tour. Curt Upton was our fantastic guide - he didn't stop talking for the entire 3 hour tour! He made a point to connect with each of the 15 people on the tour - he knew all of our names, where we were from, asked what we were doing in the city, offered many suggestions for food, activities, etc. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about the food we were tasting (and the establishments we were tasting in) but also about the building and the neighborhood. Extremely informative, very delicious, entertaining. We had 2 gluten intolerant people on the tour and he went well out of his way to ensure that they had equivalent items to taste when needed. Recommend this tour, especially if you can have it with Curt. After the tour you will definitely want to revisit many of the places to make purchases! Really enjoyed our walk on the High Line as well - had always wanted to see it - beautiful.
