Domestic Tourist(s)
The Original Greenwich Village Food and Culture Tour is the best Big Apple experience available! I have done the tour twice and it is fabulously entertaining, educational, entertaining - and tasty! In both cases the tour guides were wonderful, literate, and even funny; they make every stop along the way completely satisfying. The tour guides also seem to have excellent relationships with the local business owners who were all very enthusiastic about greeting us and discussing their wares, menus, history, etc. Just do it! It may turn out to be the most memorable and tasty three hours you will spend in the city. Highly recommended.

#5 A Perfect Blend of Food and Culture (We've got the balance)
We're different from any food tour you've ever taken. Why? Our tours are a perfect blend of the following:

  • Food: (of course!) And lots of it. And it's all included in the ticket price.
  • Architectural tidbits and fun NYC facts: The kind you can really understand and even share at a party. We'll answer those BURNING questions like, 'Why are the streets in Greenwich Village curvy?' and 'Why is Hudson Street two blocks from the Hudson River?' or 'Where does the word Manhattan come from?' Stuff you've ALWAYS wanted to know, but were afraid to ask.
  • Neighborhood entertainment offerings: See a show OFF Broadway. Or better yet, we'll recommend some OFF OFF Broadway! Now that's getting crazy. But rest assured, we know where to find the good ones.
  • Historical context: We know it's easy to forget everything you learned in American History class. We'll share the cliff notes version so you can understand NYC quickly, and more intimately.
  • Pop culture references & movie location sites: Because you know you want to see the Friends apartment and find out where The Godfather's Baptism Scene was filmed. You might even see a star or two! It's been known to happen.
  • If you're into this stuff and more, come see us!
