Full description
Join a food loving, like-minded New Yorker to explore Greenwich, one of the city’s most historic and foodie neighbourhoods, and eat your way around its diverse food scene, discovering how its immigrant communities brought their own unique heritage and delicious flavours to NY! This lively neighbourhood is known for its wide range of cuisines that reflect the ethnic diversity of NYC. But despite the daily new arrivals, many cafes, restaurants, delis and bakeries opened almost a century ago, and are now local institutions, where owners greet their customers by name and you’ll get a taste of the community spirit that the area still has.  Wander through the East Village, which is known as the heart of the Italian community and sample delicacies like cannoli and Sicilian aranchini, then visit a pizzeria that’s a local institution to taste a slice of the best pizza in NY!  Stop by a beloved local deli to try sample some Italian cheese or cured meat, indulge in something sweet at a tiny donut shop or explore the West Village which is known for its Jewish bakeries where you can sample traditional treats. Spend time getting to know your Local host, chat about your favourite food and get some insider recommendations of the most authentic locals places to eat and drink on the rest of your trip, at places your Local knows you will love.  The supplier will be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do. Your host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary. Although you will see the main attractions in the area, they will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.  This experience is better suited for adults. Vegetarian and vegan options are available.

It was a little too unscripted...some more stories of the local area would have been good. Felt a little too spontaneous.

I would strongly recommend other friends not to do this tour.

We have another tour booked through the same company tomorrow and are worried it will be like the last tour. We would strongly recommend people not to do this last tour. It was quite costly for very little benefit.
