I did the Original Greenwich tour on January 14 with my 2 kids (girls aged 11 and 7) and our au pair. We've lived in New York for ~16 years and although we thought we knew the West Village the tour was a breath of fresh air, showing me things that were surprising and novel. The food was spectacular (kids... More

The Nolita/NoHo tour was fantastic. Our guide, Paulette, was funny, entertaining, and very informative. We learned the history of the area and got to sample some delicious food. Makes me want to do the other Foods of NY tours.

What an amazing way to experience “The Heart of The Village”! Raheem, our guide, was outstanding — welcoming, constant wealth of information, and entertaining. Every restaurant had a ‘new taste’ and each was absolutely delicious. Went into this thinking it would be a fun new experience — and walk away with a experience of a lifetime! Looking forward to joining... More

Fantastic food tour. I have already recommended to two of my friends who go to NYC frequently. I've never before been to Chelsea Market and now love this area of town. The tour guide Robin was five stars. Her engaging personality, personal attention, (and personal connections with food vendors) made it extra special. Will be taking another tour soon.

I booked this tour as a Christmas present for my mum and sister while we were in New York, and it turned out (in my opinion) to be a highlight of our stay. Our tour guide Bert made sure everybody was completely comfortable right from the outset. He was so knowledgeable about the area, history and the food, and was... More

Curt was our very fabulous tour guide for the original Greenwich village. He kept us moving and entertained, but definitely not rushed. There is so much food on the tour and the portions are not skimpy. We made the mistake of eating brunch two hours before the tour, so we were hitting our food limit by the end, so maybe... More

We booked the Chelsea Markets tour for the day after our arrival in NYC. After a long flight from Australia, we weren't sure it was the smartest thing to do but it was the only time we could fit it in to our itinerary.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
