Gina was a wonderful guide for a great Mother's Day walking/eating tour of the East Village. We couldn't want for a nicer, very informative native New Yorker.

We enjoyed the tour very much.
Our guide, Eric was very knowledgable, but didn't ramble on to the point of being boring.
The stops were all quite interesting and the amount and quality of our eats were just right.

Our tour guide Eric was very knowledgeable about the area. The food was different from things I've tried in the past so it was a unique experience trying things I normally would not have chosen. Overall it was a fun tour.
