What You Can Expect
Stop in at six renowned local eateries to sample their finest fare, including Hudson Bagels and Mauman’s Falafel — the city’s oldest falafel joint. Get a taste of New York’s Italian heritage with cheesy pizza, housemade salami at Faicco's Italian Specialties, and creamy cannoli at Pasticceria Bruno, which was a champion on Food Network Challenge: Sugar Adventures. Combined, the tastings make up a satisfying sampler lunch.
As you make your way from stop to stop, learn the bohemian history of this unique neighborhood that was once home to musicians including Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, and Jimi Hendrix, and Beat writers Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac. Your guide will point out their former homes and hangouts, as well as the apartment of fictional chef Monica from Friends. After walking around 2.5 miles (4 km), say farewell to your group and your guide at La Guardia Place near the original departure point.
Faicco's Italian Specialties
Great tour, great food. Matthew our tour guide made the tour fun and interesting. i can't wait to get back to the Village and try some of the restaurants that he told us about.
Informative and engaging tour guide. Samples were delicious.
Our guide Ian was great. Good personality and knowledgeable. Food was also very good. Would have liked to stop somewhere for beer or wine after the first place perhaps at the artichoke pizza place.
This is the kind of tours that you enjoy because you get to try many different typical NY foods cupcakes, pizza, bagels, falafel while learning a lot of nice stories and anecdotes about the neighborhood. Totally recommended!
Highly enjoyable. Learned a lot about Greenwich Village and tasted wonderful food.
The tour was fantastic! Ian was our guide and he was truly amazing. In between the stops he would share interesting facts about landmarks and historical people, places and events! Totally recommend this tour and would do it again! We had a group of 15 and everyone was raving about it!
The best thing we did during our four days in the City. Our guide was Ian, and he was fantastic! He was a wealth of information about the restaurants we visited and of the history of the area as we walked from place to place. We will definitely do it again and we'll recommend it to others!
Everyone is still talking about what a great time they had on the West Village Food Tour. Those in our group who didn't participate wished they had based on the reviews of those who enjoyed it. Thanks to Ian, our tour guide!
It was a excellent trip, learn some new west village culture and taste famous foods. And a lots fun to talk with our tour guide.
