Greg was an incredible, hilarious and knowledgeable guide. He even knows a good deal about Cher, so there’s that added bonus. Book this tour! It’s so good.

Greg is the best and the food was amazing. He's very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and the merchants he selected were spectacular. I can't recommend him enough. Look forward to taking another tour with him.

Greg is knowledgeable. His history in the area of Greenwich made this tour interesting. He is a very fun and energetic individual. The tastings were great! The visits in the quaint shops were wonderful. These places are the heart of NYC - away from the glitz of midtown! Loved this tour and highly recommend it!

Me and my cousins had a great time on this food tour even tough our families are from the neighborhood we were introduced to so many little gems that we weren't even aware of and little fun facts. The day was very enjoyable.

We were really happy with the tour. We were introduced to some Italian foods that we never tried before. The guide was very informative not only on the food items offered but the neighborhoods we visited. Every thing was well planned and executed. Would really recommend to other travellers.

Gary seems to know a great deal about the area. This includes the people, the buildings, the food, and the atmosphere. He clearly loves his job and the information that he imparts.

Interesting facts, but not much food. On other walking tours I have left feeling as though I had a meal. Left hungry after this one
Very personable and eager to answer questions. Assisted us to our subway station
