This tour was fantastic! Just enough history and food stops, but not overwhelming. Saw some non-food related history spots which were great. Justin, the tour guide, was knowledgeable and very friendly. Definitely would recommend to book!

This was my second food tour with this NY company. We had a delightful guide, Marci, who was very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. The food selections were great and very generous. Didn’t need lunch, for sure.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

If you really want to try the tour I would look for a groupon. It is absolutely not worth $50pp.
