Ross was an excellent guide who brought the history of Greenwich Village to life. He patiently answered many questions and had a wonderful blend of personal knowledge and experience along with the general history of the area. The food options were delightful and while I certainly would have enjoyed more pizza, we were well fed. Lovey variety of food and perfect timing between stops as well. Highly recommend!


Our whole family (6) went on the tour of the West Village, and we all agreed Ross was an outstanding guide! Perfect amount of time spent on the historical aspects of the village while stopping for 6 yummy tastings! Highly recommend!


Eating pomme frites on a trash receptable Searching for a bathroom Meeting new people Great falafel Awkward tour guide.


Brendan was great and had so much knowledge about the neighborhoods we walked through. Our group loved the food, but some said they wished it was flipped. We had light small bites and then 3 heavy options at the end. My husband wished we would’ve had the full slice of pizza, but that was his only complaint. All in all, we loved it and it was a great way to start our day in the city!


Lydia was an awesome! We had the best time! The food stops were great!!!! What a great way to spend a day off!


I really enjoyed this tour, we were a small group of three and Brendan was a fountain of knowledge. There was so much food on this tour (possibly too much but makes it worth the money), it all tasted great and was a great way to learn about the area.


Andrea was very informative about the area. Food was ok but experience was great! She was a great guide!


It was awesome. The West Village is amazing. So different than Times Square. And the Food...Everything was delicious. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. Ages ranged from 18-77. We all loved the experience. Would do it again.


We had a great tour and experience on the Lower West Side Food Tour. Our guide, Brendan, was knowledgeable and made the day both fun and enjoyable. We were able to have six tastings and were told some interesting stories about the west side of NY.


Adam was awesome!! This was by far our favourite tour on our trip. The food tastings were really good and substantial. Adam was knowledgeable and fun. We would absolutely recommend this tour.
