Your Itinerary

Molly's Cupcakes

Meeting point and ending point. We finish up at this award-winning cupcake place. It’s too-cool-for-school with desks, retro lunch boxes and even swings. Oh and cupcakes to die for.

Mamoun's Falafel

The best falafel you’ll ever have in Manhattan or perhaps anywhere. It’s no surprise they’ve been around since 1971 - the longest Middle Eastern spot in all of New York.

Artichoke Basille's Pizza

This West Village institution is renowned for their namesake pizza and while they have other delicious pizzas, we go with their double-crusted, creamy work of art: the artichoke slice. And no you don’t have to like artichokes to love this slice!

Pommes Frites

Pommes Frites has the best fries in the city or probably anywhere. Authentic Belgian fries that are double cooked and topped with extraordinary sauces - choose from over 30!

Bleecker Street Pizza

We make a minimum of seven food stops. The tour lasts about three hours.

Little Owl

(Pass by)

No, there isn’t really a Central Perk and yes, they filmed Friends in Los Angeles ...but for you 'Friends' fans, you can check out the outside of their apartment. They shot the facade footage here. Clap clap clap clap.

Washington Square Park

Washington Square Park is legendary. You’ve seen it in a ton of films, it’s the unofficial campus of NYU students and you’ll see some of the coolest people in the city here. Feed pigeons. Hear musicians and watch street performers. You never know what to expect. Oh except for the mighty arch which is, of course, renowned.

The Stonewall Inn

(Pass by)

The Stonewall Inn is such a huge historical site - literally and figuratively. We pass by the prideful institution as well as its new statue which was installed to commemorate it’s 50th anniversary.

Faicco’s Italian Specialties

Faicco's has so many items that will make your mouth water. We sample their arancini (rice ball) and sopressata (salami) and I promise you, these bite sized delights pack a culinary punch that last long after the tour.

I can't think of a better way to get the inside story about Greenwich Village and West Village than spending a few hours with a born and bred street smart New Yorker stand up comic in the making like Adam. Walking the streets hearing about secret food delights, celebrities' homes, quintessential figures with a bit of history thrown in made for an afternoon incredibly well spent. I seriously will check them out again in my next trip. Not only does Adam know the places to go to but also, he made Washington Park come alive with his anecdotes, introducing us to Larry and his unusual bird tricks...(I shall not ruin the surprise!) . Back home now, I find myself craving the star of show, Bleeker Street Pizza and the Nonna, a crsip light cornmeal thin crust topped with fresh mozzarella, homemade marinara sauce, the finest Parmesan and fresh basil - simply divine!!

Adam led us in a wonderful tour. We got to know the neighborhoods and foods in a relaxed atmosphere. Adam was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly as well. You will definitely finish your tour full, but the portions are not overwhelming.

Adam led us on a fun tour with 9 others. It was a great group and we sampled LOTS of delicious foods and got a wonderful experience learning about Greenwich Village and the West Village. Adam shared interesting info re: the sights too. I highly recommend this experience!

Very enjoyable tour! Our guide Emmeline was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and her interesting commentary along with delicious food made this a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We booked this as our last activity of our trip and if we’d known how good it would be, we would’ve booked more! A tip- go along with an empty stomach as the food comes in generous portions. Highly recommended.

Do you want an intro to Greenwich and West Village? This tour takes you through both neighborhoods, stopping at some amazing food stops. The food is only a portion of the tour; Adam, our tour guide, gives you a great narrative about NYC and its neighborhoods. Adam is a wealth of knowledge and it was fun listening and learning from him. Thanks Nice Guys!!

Rachel_R

Excellent food tour that combined the sites, history, neighborhoods, and local eateries. Adam was a fun and knowledgeable guide who kept us laughing while keeping it NY real.
